Dust Extractor Hose Capacity
« on: July 16, 2017, 03:17 AM »
How much hose will fit in the "hose garage" on the CT-26? Wondering if either a 3.5 or 5 meter 36 mm hose will fit nicely along with a power cord.

Harry, you must be a master at space organization!  I've never been able to get my 3.5M x 36mm in my hose garage.  I thought I was pretty good at packing, but I guess I need to get some more learning.

I've fit my 3.5x36mm hose entirely as well, but the hose doesn't necessarily like it (it also works better if a small part of the hose is protruding out the slot in the front).  I think a forced fitting may have been the cuplrit for a kink I created in the hose a while back.

I can get my 3.5m 36mm hose easily into the CT-26 garage.  If by power cord, you mean a plug-it, one of those will fit as well (at least the one that comes with a TS75).  If you mean the vac cord instead of using the cord wrap, then I doubt it.

Thanks! I meant the Plug-It cord.
