Boom arm installation on ct 48?
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:17 PM »
Can any of you fine gentlemen help me out here?

I just picked up a ct48 in addition to my 36ac.  I got this because the 36ac does not accommodate the boom arm.  Now that it finally arrived I though I throw on the handle and arms in a few minutes.... but I got stuck right when I tried to fit the handle on the dust extractor.  Is there any good videos out there that show the process? or even some clear written instructions of how to install?  My first thought was that maybe they sent me the wrong part (handle) but maybe it's just me.....

The CT48 requires a different handle (part no. 497295) than the smaller CT26 and CT36 models. Looking at the Festool product page, I don't see that the Boom Arm is compatible with the CT48.  [crying]

Thanks for your input.  It turns out the reason for me not being able to install was because they sent me the wrong handle.  Once they ship the correct part I should have no issues installing to my ct48.
