Difference between dust extractors CTL 36 and CTL 26?
« on: January 09, 2018, 10:18 PM »
Hi,
I'm looking to buy a dust extractor from Carbatec here in Western Australia who offer the Festool CTL 36 (FE-574868) and Festool CTL 26 (FE-574867). I've looked for comparative reviews but can't find any detailing the exact differences between these two models to account for the $100 difference.

Could you please explain the difference to me?
Thank you

Assuming it's the same by you as it is in the US.  The only difference is capacity.

Same motor, same filter, same footprint, bigger capacity, slightly taller.

I was set on the 26 but ended up with the 36 as I got it with the TS55 mdf set. No difference apart from 10L internal capacity and as a result a slightly higher unit. Footprint, suction, power etc all the same.

I'll just add that if you're shop bound the extra capacity of the 36 may be nice, but if you're mobile and need to pick the unit up and put it in a car, the extra capacity is VERY noticeable when nearly full when picking it up!
