Manual remote switch. Finally!
"tapered hose", "conical geometry" of the hose, what does it mean? Hose has different diameter at the opposite ends?

Bluetooth: nice.
Smooth hose: nice.

Now get back to the old nozzle and it's perfect. And maybe a tad more suction.

Just to confirm, this is all retrofit ready for current CT26/36/48 owners?

Awesome. It seems like the bluetooth module is an add-on we can buy and add to our existing dust extractor. The fineprint states: * Only suitable for retrofitting to CT 26/36/48. Must be carried out by a qualified electrician.

But anyways, it seems to have the same feature on the dust extractor that Makita recently launches

+1 -- please bring back the old hose nozzle - the new one just does not work that well.

Is the new T-loc hose garage more durable than the previous version, and is it retro-fittable?

Lots to like, but I had to smile at the byline "Taking suction to a new dimension."  I was imagining Dr. Who with Bluetooth connectivity to a CT 36 in another dimension.  (It's the curse of semi-random associations...)

Ditto on the questions about a redesigned garage, retrofitting for Bluetooth (including the little hose button?), and availability in NA.

I have a few questions (including some already posed):

1) Is the (nice) new hose interchangeable with the old style?  i.e can the new hose plug into the inlet in the old machines?

2) Is the new T-Loc hose garage retro-fittable to the old machines?

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

4) Does the existing reusable dustbag (for the CT26) fit the new machine?

5) (I like the new Bluetooth module, but already use the spare module for an additional plug-it cord) Can anyone think of a way to fit the BT module as well as the additional plug connection?

I've been around long enough to know not to ask the price ;-).  I don't mind replacing my CT26, but would probably be happy with a T-Loc garage and hose upgrade (whilst ditching the messy "Cleantec" hose end).

Cheers

yup

2) Is the new T-Loc hose garage retro-fittable to the old machines?
yup, four screws out and four to fit

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

4) Does the existing reusable dustbag (for the CT26) fit the new machine?
yup

5) (I like the new Bluetooth module, but already use the spare module for an additional plug-it cord) Can anyone think of a way to fit the BT module as well as the additional plug connection?

The new features sound great -- except the bit about the new Bluetooth Battery Packs sounds a little scary: "... and to make sure even cordless tools start automatically when the mobile dust extractor is switched on."

 [scared]  [eek] [blink]


I see that the PDF has corrected this.  [big grin]

Did the CT's always come with just a 15 day guarantee instead of 30?

Not sure.  I thought all festool products had 30 days.  I was looking at getting another CT26.  I guess I'll wait and see how long it will be before they are available in the US.

30 days might be more convenient, but 15 days should be plenty of time to judge if a tool suits you or not.

We used to have 30 days in the UK but it changed to 15 days a couple of years back...........

Hi Frank
The hose garage has had a complete re-design and is very robust to the point of sitting comfortably.

Hi
 Connecting the battery is simple....and 5 batteries can be connected to one receiver.
Push the green button on the receiver....a blue light will 'spin' around the outside edge and when this happens pull the trigger on the machine and then they are connected.
The battery is the part 'connected' so this can be taken off and used on other machines also
To disconnect just put the battery on the charger
Available as 5.2 and 6.2

Nice PDF - no suction in a new dimension :), but otherwise does a good job of describing the improvements.
