I am searching for a longer hose for my CT-36, currently I am just using the stock 27mm/3.5M hose with all my tools, including the TS-55/Domino/OF 1400/ETS 125 and RO-90.
I work only at home, in my shop and I use (and absolutely love) the Ultimate Dust Deputy. My shop is small, the CT-36 is stationary next to the double doors and I end up working outside often so I need a longer hose to reach stuff without needing to move the extractor.
I am considering going with the 36mm/7M hose and I would prefer to sleeve the hose, my current 27mm hose is covered halfway with gorilla sleeve and the cord is run inside it, I find this works great.
So, my questions boil down to:
- Any reason NOT to go with the 7M length? The CT 36 seems to have plenty of suction.
- Any suggestions on non-Festool options? I already have a long Mr. Nozzle hose that I might be able to re-purpose, I have not really looked into adapters, etc.
- Any way to get a cord longer than 13'? I would really like to have a couple of 25' Plug-it cords but I can't locate any on the Festool USA site.
- Pro's/Con's on using a larger hose then reducing it with a few feet of 27mm to maintain flexibility?.
Would appreciate any suggestions or feedback.
