What are the new features of the CT 26 & 36?

The CT 26 and 36 will feature HEPA filtration, variable suction control, tool-triggered operation, SysDock tool storage capabilities, an antistatic hose and many of the other common features that you've come to expect from the Festool's industry leading dust extractors. For a complete list of features, visit our website.

One new, and very unique, feature is the innovative self-cleaning filter bags. If you've used other dust extractors, you may have experienced the issue of fine dust particles becoming caked to the inner lining of the vacuum bag. Festool has solved this problem by creating a filter bag from a fleece material that is designed to collapse and expand as the power is cycled on the dust extractor. This causes the dust cake to break up and disperse to the bottom of the bag.

The advantage is that there is no loss of suction as the bag fills up, which is the case with other manufacturer's models. Clogging of the filter bag can also create unnecessary strain on the motor and lead to premature failure, a costly repair or replacement.
