The larger machines are adopting an optional module for a module bay that was always present on those machines
and never present on the mini/midi/ct-sys.

Just pre-ordered the new Bluetooth remote control set from FestoolProducts.com this morning! Only $80! I was surprised to see it under $100. Doesnt ship till April 2nd though, so theres a bit of a wait.

Those who have older hoses might consider this product to retro "sleeve" them yourself. It's called Dura Wrap and is on the Internet from many vendors - available in various diameters. Closes with strong velcro and made of very tough woven Nylon.

Can this be used on a CT MIDI? 

The MINI & MIDI are missing some pinouts on their circuit boards, until Festool decides to upgrade the boards, the answer is no. [sad]    [crying]

I see that Festoolproducts.com has the new improved T-Loc garage for the CT 26,36,48 listed for $49.95
I think I'm gonna get one.  My CT36 suffered another break when I moved it while it was under my MFT.  The garage bumped into one of the cross members and <crack> new chunk missing.  [blink]

"3) Can the old style tool-end connector be fitted to the new hose?"

Just finished reading this thread, the above question has been asked more than once - third time lucky?? Perhaps someone who has the new hose could comment on whether they think it's possible? Or indeed @Phil Beckley ?

A lot of talk about the new sleeves (I must say they look great and sound like an improvement); the Bluetooth tech and battery pairing (have to admit I'm lost where this is concerned); but absolutely no mention of any improved efficiency?

Do these new models filter better?

Is their exhausted air, cleaner?

 Aren't factors like these at least as important as new hoses/bluetooth connectivity/tougher plastic? Or perhaps more important, given the principal purpose of a dust extractor?

I'd really appreciate an answer from Festool about this, but fellow Foggers, feel free to chime in. :-)

Same basic architecture, same bags, same motors, same filters.  Same as before I'd expect!  Well... with a less heavily corrugated hose there may be slightly less internal turbulence & hence slightly better airflow.

Maybe.

Nah, once all the basics are taken care off, people will find other "wants" and so we end up with a near perfect vac where the biggest thing to  about was apparently the hose.

Hi Everyone

I have just uploaded a video about the new hose garage and Bluetooth. I started a thread about it here:

Thanks fellow Foggers - some great contributions there.

Particularly loved the "near perfect vac" as "all the basics are taken care of" - reassuring to know there's nothing actually that can be improved with respect to the principal function of these extractors.

Thanks to Peter too, for drawing our attention back to the topic at hand - the new hose garage and Bluetooth.

 Improved performance in the efficiency of the extractors seems to be a non starter then, as far as it's users are concerned. Perhaps a representative of Festool could comment? - Is the airflow improved? Have there been any changes in the design of the new extractors which improve the efficiency of the dust collection? Is the exhausted air cleaner?

Gotta love the new hose though.

Sounds good, but I think you've jumped the gun Leakyroof - that's for the next facelift.  8)
