First accessory arrived this morning...
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:21 PM »
Ordered the 495802 handle for my CT36 vac.  Just opened it and haven't installed it yet but have to say I'm really impressed with the weight of this thing.  Seems really well made I guess I'm just used to the made in PRC stuff, lol...  Just yesterday was assembling a 190,000 btu job site heater and was thinking the screws would pull straight through handles they are so flimsy in comparison.   Also impressed that the bottom plate is steel I really was expecting it to be plastic.

Yea I love the handle on my CT36. Pretty much a requirement IMO as I couldnt figure out a good way to move the vac around without it.

Yes, someone was asking about the power cord holder.  Some pics of the handle / power cord holder would be good.

Went on no problem.  I like it even more now that it's on.  Going to be using this at customer's houses with systainers attached so figured I'd pretty much need it.  Doesn't interfere with cord storage.

Thanks for the pic !

  @Jaydee39   Looks like the cord wrap still works with the handle.
