The brochure states 2400 watt, and that’s for the 26, 36 and 48

You appear to be in the UK so us on this side of the pond will have to defer to those on your side for answers / advice.

I had a similar question yesterday.....

I have been looking at buying one of the new CTM Midi's that are due to be released for sale over here in March.I need a 110v option for site work.
I looked at the Festool UK website and it stated that the maximum appliance load was only 770w......!!!!!
The 2019 Festool brochure states a maximum of 2200w load for the new Midi.

I contacted Festool UK for clarification and they told me that ......." it was a misprint and that any of our power tools can be plugged into our extractors"

I'm waiting to hear back from my local Festool Technical Rep for him to confirm before I place my pre-order.

oohh. maybe this is relevant to you

http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/ctl-dust-extractor-max-on-board-socket-load/

Thanks, I phoned N&B where I bought it from apparently they make one socket and one only and has a 500 watt sticker he has assured me that it is 2400w  but if using a tool above 1500w use a 5Kva transformer as may lose some suction power, I can sleepbetter tonight now. And I will have to explain all this to the two joiners on Monday morning when I present them with the shiny machines  [big grin]

I have that machine 8n the UK running off 110 volts.
It copes with the extractor and my TS55 off a 3.2 Kva transformer as long as the leads are short.
Long leads and it hunts for revs.
Having a 32 amp plug to 16 amp socket flylead is handy and means I get to plug into the hardly used sockets on site..

In short using 16 amp sockets off a little transformer and long leads is a hiding to nowhere.
