CT 26 Garage difference
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:46 PM »
Hi guys, I am sorry if I am in the wrong topic.

I have a quick question...

What is the difference between two dust extractors hose garages? they both have the same part numbers but they look different and the price is different...

link #2 http://www.shopfestool.com/festool-dust-extractor-hose-garage-ct-26-36-36ac-48-203227-replaces-496237/

Thank you for helping me out...

@Thebesciak,

Our website shows the correct image for a CT 26/36/48 replacement hose garage. The other website shows it for a CT 22/33. I have adjusted the price on our website.  [wink]

Plus, we have it in stock.  [big grin]

So the CT26 hose garage is cheaper then the old 22 and 33 by $19 .That doesn't make sense .Is this the new and improve version or it the same the old CT26 garage .

@ishmerc

This is the same hose garage that is coming on the current CT26/36/48 being sold in the U.S. If by new and improved you mean the version just released in Europe, no, it's not that model.

You would have to ask Festool USA why the prices are what they are.  [smile]

So is the replacement garage shown on your website exactly the same as the original (on my 4 year old CT 26 E for example)?  There was a customer comment/review on the page that mentioned a new metal bracket that adds reinforcement to the garage.  Mine has started breaking and it would be nice if a new one improved on the old one.

@Welshdog, thanks for the question. To the best of my knowledge, there have been no changes to the hose garage for the CT 26/36/48 since its introduction. @TylerC may be able to confirm that for us.

There have been a few very minor tweaks to the hose garages, but — for all intents and purposes — they have remained unchanged.

Thanks both of you.  I may try adding some fiberglass reinforced epoxy to the one I have.  It's already broken twice in small areas so it might be fun and harmless to experiment with it.  I also have some carbon fiber mesh used for concrete reinforcing - probably too big but worth a look.

I have toyed with the idea of mixing up resin only and pouring into the cavities on the underside of the garage.  I haven’t simply because of potential reactions between materials. @Welshdog if you do this with yours, please post results. I don’t want to break something that ain’t broken.
