My guesstimating from the picture and rough math puts you right in the ballpark. 6 - 6.75 L.

That would be quite an elaborate April Fool's joke and in the same league as the new tool that we see from Lee Valley every April 1. 

I'm hoping that the Festool product designers do not have the same great sense of humour that the designers at Lee Valley have demonstrated.

Even though I already have two Festool dust collectors (a CT22 and a Mini), I would probably spring for this one if, indeed, it is real.

Nah, I don't really believe it's an april first joke. Looks legit enough to me.

Seems like it is small enough to carry up a ladder, that would really suit me nicely. Standing high up with 7 meters of hose dangling beneath me is not all that desireable.

I really hope it won't cost more than a Mini.

I can live with 3.5 liters capacity, it is meant for when you want to be really mobile.

I don't think they could do it with add-on units, but they could simply do a model with a larger lower systainer height.

Speaking of which, I think they've missed a trick here:

It looks from the picture like a sys1+sys2 combo. That gives it an overall height that is incompatible with any other combination. They could instead have used a sys2+sys2 combination (giving more room in the hose storage area) or a sys1+sys3 combination (giving more capacity & room for additional tools). Either of those would then equal the height of a sys4.

Did no one at Festool think of this? ???

No, it's the standard 400x300mm footprint, not the larger 'midi' sys.

I agree with you.  They appear to me to be Midi systainers.  Midi systainers come in sys-2 and sys-3 heights.

That is a great price! If they get to Canada, I might buy 2.  (and thanks for the clarification on the footprint size).

But, that price takes me back to the thought that it might be an elaborate joke.   [scratch chin]

Looks awesome! I'd buy one here in Canada. I hope that Festool plans to get the CSA certification to sell it here.

I'd rather a vacuum in this format for portability sake on Job sites. The CTL36AC I have is great but a tad too bulky and heavy to lug around and because of the overall height I'm limited to the stack of Systainers I can bring in to a job site in one go. This would work great with my sys-cart.

With the smaller DC's not available here in Canada this new format would fit the need.

I was out at a large high end home on acreage south of the city yesterday and after completing millwork on the top floor I had to lift and carry the CTL36AC up two flights of stairs that were hardwood and carry the beast to the area I had been working (there were hardwood floors in all rooms) and then clean up when I was done.

It looks like the vacuum specs as far as the suction is the same rating as the other Festool vacuums.

I think the suction ratings differ slightly between European & NA models, probably due to the voltage difference. I know that over there the CT mini/Midi and the CT26/36 all have the same specs. Here in Europe (or at least, in the UK) they all have the same max. vacuum of 24000 Pa, but the airflow is slightly lower on the mini/midi (3700 l/min compared to the 26/36 which is 3900 l/min.

This new CTL SYS is rated at 20000 Pa, with an airflow of 3000 l/min, so slightly lower than either of the above.

PS - I might possibly have just ordered one too... [unsure]

Thanks for the clarification on the specs.

Even with slightly less suction or flow I'd still buy one for the sake of size, portability and function. The CTL36AC takes up a TON of real estate in my full sized pick up truck back seat area with the seats folded up. With this new DC format I'd be able to carry more of my systainers in the vehicle.

Right now I have to try to anticipate which tools/systainers I will need for the tasks that day and sometimes I'm missing a specific tool for an unanticipated task.

This would be great if it had the option of battery power. The problem I see with the battery 55 saw is that in order to get good waste disposal is to connect a vacuum hose, and if you connect a vacuum hose then you may as well connect a power lead as you need mains power for the vacuum. If it were battery powered then it would make the waste extraction and all connected tools truly portable.
While I am on, why not make a systainer that accepts batteries and power the tools and vacuum from that?

I will verify that this a real product, it's not an April Fool's joke. It is the same size as standard Systainers. I'll admit that the photo with the guy going up the stairs makes it look out of proportion, but its a standard Systainer footprint.

I think it will be a great, small, portable dust extraction system for on-site work, particularly when paired with the Sys-Roll or SysCart.

No ETA for introduction in the US/Canada.

I don't have any other details to share right now.

I will verify that this a real product, it's not an April Fool's joke. It is the same size as standard Systainers. I'll admit that the photo with the guy going up the stairs makes it look out of proportion, but its a standard Systainer footprint.

I think it will be a great, small, portable dust extraction system for on-site work, particularly when paired with the Sys-Roll or SysCart.

No ETA for introduction in the US/Canada.

I don't have any other details to share right now.

OK Shane, now I believe it. 

April 1 is a very unfortunate date for Festool to pick as a product release.
Cheers,

This looks awesome.  The CT36 and CT Mini I currently have are probably already redundant for my casual hobby usage, but I'd still be  tempted to pick one up!

Thank you for translating Garry.  Does "Suction power thanks to integrated automatic on/off" mean tool-activated?

Great question mate. I never thought of that. Surely it's got to be. It'll be going back if it's not tool operated.

Yes, you can rest assured it has the tool-activation function.

I'm a bit concerned I haven't read anything about variable suction yet. It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, but not having it sounds so Middle Ages. It has its usefulness sometimes.

I'm guessing that the green switch above the power switch with writing on probably says "On" and "Auto". Green things in Festool world are switches/adjustments, so I can't think of anything else it would be.

I am so getting one of these - should be fantastic for all those little 'running around' jobs where a bigger vac is overkill.

Great then.  Sorry if I missed it, but for my pre-order cabinet build (or one of Tim's MFTC's) to make room for this, is the height the same as a Sys-4 or a Sys-5? 

Sort of like building a crib after learning that my wife and I were expecting...  Now if she read this, I'd surely have to start building my own box. This is surely getting to be a sickness. I thought I was good for awhile, but now a whole new plateau.

One problem though, since it's coming out on Apr.1 somewhere, it's sure to have that price increase applied to it (ha, just had to throw that one in there).

    It is the height of a Sys - I (4" ) combined with a Sys - II (6"). About 10" tall when connected. So it is 2" shorter than a Sys - IV. I am guessing from the pictures that the top and bottom unit need to be connected in order to use the vac.

Idk this one isn't doing it for me. The Midi is plenty small enough for me.

When i purchased all my Milwakee tools i got their small toolbox sized vacuum. Why i don't know. I guess like many looking at this new offering it looked convenient and like something i would use. I  never use it being my Midi and or a shop vac are always on sight as i heed actual dust collection and something capable of a real cleanup at days end. End up being dust another tool to carry in that probably is not going to get used.

I suppose i can see people buying this. For me i would rather purchase another actual tool or lumber to build something with.

Something like this would do very well for me in the kind of on-site work I do.  It's a huge benefit to have a DC able to fit the Sys-Roll.

The colour from that systainer is the real Festool colour they use for all their tools and vacs. It is a dark blue that is so dark it is almost black. You will only see it's not black under a certain angle with the light, and when scratches or cracks appear.

But because that systainer is a special edition I sincerely doubt you will be able to order the lid separately. 

And Tanos does not have that colour in their inventory either, because it is a Festool exclusive colour, so the only way to get close to it is to order a pure black lid from Tanos.

Dark blue or not, the Cooltainer looks black. And I am betting that the lids on the Sys-CTL are the same. Course you will need to track down dealers that still have Cooltainers left as they were a limited item.

I really really think this would be so nice to have on site for a couple quick cuts with the TS55 or small sanding tasks with my Ets125. I could keep the Midi hooked to my Kapex. If the price is accurate it will sell like hotcakes!

If the Fein hose from the Turbo 1 fits on this unit, then you will have variable suction as it is built into the hose and works well from what I hear. Will try it once my dealer gets this new toy.

How can it be designed for light sanding if you can't turn down the suction?  Without variable suction I'll stick with the midi for site work.  It's a shame because to add that feature takes no space and is dirt cheap.

Well, that's a real bummer. Odd design decision to leave such a thing out. So little extra effort to include it and so much gain in functionality.

But instead it has onboard storage for accessories, which doesn't seem to be the most important feature to me, and even then leaves out the most useful one, the brush.

I also don't understand why this would be a light duty vac. I know Festool and Rupes look very closely to each other for years and copy each other whenever possible. Rupes has this suitcase vac already for a long time and it is most often used for sanding as sanding in the automotive industry is Rupes' core business. That vac of theirs is not run lightly, but used all day.

I 100% agree!

If Festool keeps heading this direction they really are going to pigeon hole them self knee deep in the hobbyist only market.

Add to this the whole Euro topic and Maffel is really gonna steal Festool spot amongst those that really use their tools for income generating work. I think there are two clear demographic that tend to purchase Festool. Those that expect actual usable innovation that translates to time savings, increases in productivity along with improved quality of work. Hence easily justifying the insane inflated prices over the competition. Then those that fall somewhere in the hobbyist or tool collector category.

Clearly i think even the tool collectors would like yo see Festool continue putting the majority of its focus/time and energy producing tools that are innovative game changers that they have been know for vrs a bunch of entry level "$$$$"  type toys priced and marketed to appeal to the homeowner or hobbyist. 

To be clear nothing wrong with hobby use. However if Festool end up marketing and building more for this market i fear sooner than later they will be just that hobby tools and nothing more.

As I have said before, in Europe the artisans see Festool as the DIY end of the market and I know of a few down here is the south of France who refuse to see Festool as the new Protool and I think they will have an uphill struggle convincing the trade if they keep making gimmicky tools.
They have just recently rebranded their Carpentry tools, in my opinion the best in class, from Protool to Festool and although they are the same tool the name "Festool" puts a lot of tradesman off.
So a shoulder bag vacuum may sell well in a "Home and Garden" type magazines but not in the trade, my opinion anyway.

In the US you also see very few people in the field using Festool. Maybe the occasional cabinet installer or trim carpenter but thats about it. Im not saying they are not used by tradesman in the field but just the fact that for the most part you have to go to a store like Woodcraft to purchase them kinda says it all.

I know when i break out my Festools my co workers kinda laugh a little to them self and i know that they are thinking I'm nuts for spending so much on a tool when another tool that cost half as much can get the job not only done but just as well in most cases.

The fact is i am a carpenter by trade, residential home builder to be specific. I work on only custom homes in the $5-25 million dollar range. I can count on one hand the times in the last 15 years i have seen a Festool on a job sight. These are crazy custom homes where quality of work is of the utmost importance and $$$ is no object for the most part.

Still i love my Festools. I will admit i am also a hobbyist furniture maker hence Festools. I do use my Festools at work from time to time but i have to admit they pretty much live in my shop while my Yellow and Red tools get used everyday.

My opinion is in no way a hit at hobby woodworkers it is just what i see in the field and my personal opinion. As i said i am a hobby furniture maker myself. Im am a tradesman from birth and as much as i have learnt to not only accept but embrace my profession i would give it up for a day job in a minute and hobby woodworking on the weekend and evenings?

You wont get some elitist pro attitude from me as I'm not that guy. Quite the opposite tbh!

By the way, I haven't seen this CT anywhere before, though it appears to be NAINA as well as the new CTLSYS.  It's called the CT17 E.



Only the equivalent of $245.00 at current US$/€ rates...before 19% German VAT.

Good Evening

Always amazes me how you guys find out about new stuff so quickly.

When you have a myFestool account on the Festool website you'll get the latest news on that (private) account.
Until then it's not published on the regular website.

Thats a Protool vac rebranded as Festool, good vacuum that uses standard paper bags, I have a couple of them and find them far better than the midi I was sold with the design flaw, the 90 degree bend as it enters the vacuum.

I 100% agree!

If Festool keeps heading this direction they really are going to pigeon hole them self knee deep in the hobbyist only market.

...


I agree that a few  of the things that Festool has brought out recently are quite frivolous.  Most obvious of these is the cooler.

But, a dust collector that one can very easily carry about and even use on a ladder meets a real need and is not all frivolous.  The attached photo shows the degree to which I have done to accomplish this:



I am actually in both groups that Festool products are aimed at in that about half the time I am a hobbyist and half the time I am a carpenter/contractor/electrician/plumber/painter/builder/roofer.  I believe that this small dust collector will have more appeal to the second group and that, for this group, it meets a real need.

hi it's not a april 1st a festool dealer told me about it yesterday and he has seen it him self after i saw him i try to find it but did have the right name for so google wasn't show any thing so cool to see it now [tongue]

Whoever told about it to your dealer breaking the rules big time, as all Festool UK employes were given "right bollocking" (kick in the balls for our US friends) at the sales meeting in February for revealing things before offcial release dates gone past.

I personally was told about something that was supposed to be coming out in in April with previews (demo) starting on 20th March but now has been postponed till further notice. I have no idea what it is as all I was told it will not apply directly to us ( I was at the workshop at the time, guessing workshop environment ), so for all I Know it could be a " [scared] [eek] [bite tongue]concrete mixer"?

As someone who uses their tools to earn a living I'm curious which tools are generally considered "frivolous " or aimed at the hobbiest marke. There are some Festool tools and/or accessories that I personally have no use for, but I could easily see another professional finding them beneficial. Festool by no means makes everything I need but what they do make is generally quite practical.

2) how exactly will a shoulder bag vac differ in your use of a vac.

(1) First of all because I'm sanding the facia, soffit, and eve's trough before re-painting and it gets very dusty and not good to breathe.  Secondly the sanding is more effective with the vacuum attached.

(2) Have you tried carrying a large Festool vacuum such as the CT 22 I am using in the picture up a ladder?  It's even difficult for me to manage the CT Mini on a ladder.  I expect that I will make a simple frame to hang from the ladder that will hold the new smaller vacuum.

I can see a use for this the same as Frank. All older properties here are smothered in lead paint and I would rather the stuff was in a bag than in the air. I maybe wearing a mask but it's still going into the atmosphere. Carrying a midi up on scaffold is hard and hanging it off a ladder is dangerous. Have joined two 5m hoses together but it's very heavy and a handy first floor window is a luxury.  Other box vacums are available here but are not hepa or compatible

I've worked like this, and it's no fun having 7 meters of hose dangling from your sander when you're on top of  a ladder.

I've done this - worked petty well, with very little reduction in suction over the length. The trick was to run some velro around the hose a couple of metres from the end and suspend this from the ladder rungs on an 'S' hook - takes the bulk of the weight off the business end. Festool also do an extra-long plug-it chord so you don't have trailing extensions adding to the weight and clattering around under the ladder as well.

Ive been waiting for the rebadged protools becoming available in 110v, but i guess it wont happen as its been a while now and i can understand manufacturing and distribution costs etc. to make the change.

But the new brushless sanders are only available in 240v and hence its no good to me, ime suprised by this as it would be a ideal for solid surface fitting on site.

This vac even tho is not cordless (like my old dewalt) it would still be good for quick site work, in my case shopfitting instalation type work, alterations /repairs onsite, etc

I'd second the 110v suggestion and the battery one too:

As a unit that charges batteries during a job, then when all else is packed away can be taken round for a final sweep with no need for mains / transformer etc it's a real winner esp with shoulder strap and integrated hose.

It can't be all things to all men but it's a use where portability / battery only option really makes sense and being a charging station will mean it's already there in use ready for the clean up.

So pretty please!!!

Just bought this a few days ago. Now, upon testing, I realise that the suction can not be adjusted. And right now I was using a Mirka sanding block with hose. Since it is smaller in diameter than the one on the Festool it acts like I´m blocking the airflow. Really really a bummer, as this would be my absolute nr. 1 choice for small jobs around the house, especially sanding.

Any suggestions? Just hate the idea of returning this for a CTL Mini.

Especially for the CTL-SYS because I also noticed that this new vac lacks it on the vac itself. So maybe the hose is the solution.

Thanks. That could probably work. But you would have that awful noise of the air. It´s either this option, or replacing it with another CTL. Since ALL OF THEM have suction-control [tongue]

AND, for me personally, the benefit of turning down suction (on my Midi) also lowers the noise. Which is very helpful with small children in the house, when working in the evening.

And this is of course my and only my fault for not checking this before purchase. But why, why WHY make a super product like this, especially suited for small jobs, without this function.

If this issue will be solved by Festool I will for sure run back and get the updated version!

Hasn't someone tried to build an electronic controller in the ctl sys? A simple universal one they cost appr. 10€/$

Only problem is your warranty with festool.
And you have drill a little hole for the potentiometer somewhere.

Think it must be possible, and with a festool lemon green turn switch it would be look like it's original  8)

Maybe it´s even possible the get the part-number of the original one, and have some service-place order that one for us.

Very disappointed that the CTL-Sys and the new Systainer with drawers were not in the USA March 2016 release. :(

I thought for sure Festool would release this in the states. Instead they are releasing a suction machine that I'd guess less than half of Festool users would purchase. Again, that's just my guess. Anyways, because I was personally let down by the lack of the CTL Sys release, I made my own dumbed down version.

- Half? I'd give it <1% for the SYS-Vac.

Guessing at how many Vac SYS set ups will be sold is kind of the same as guessing how many bad Kapex's are out there---

The Vac SYS is the first new item release of the year, there will certainly be more... be patient!

Oh guaranteed, without a doubt I agree. Just thought I'd make something I wanted to give Festool my money for.

It isn't a vac made by Bosch. I made my own vac using an Lboxx2 with added Lrack.
