CT Dust Extractors

Festool CT MINI & MIDI models get an upgrade.

Continuing to raise the bar in performance, Festool has made some improvements to the CT MINI and MIDI. New units will come standard with a HEPA filter factory installed and the new self-cleaning filter bags that were introduced last year in the CT 26 and CT 36. And, the best part... the price remains unchanged.

New for October 2011 - The CT 48 Dust Extractor.

This time last year, we were announcing the introduction of the new CT 26 and CT 36 Dust Extractors which incorporate numerous upgrades from the previous models of Festool Dust Extractors. Now, we're introducing the newest and largest Dust Extractor in our CT family, the new CT 48 (584 084) coming October 2011. If you need lots of capacity, this behemoth is for you!
