Festool release new Dust Extractor Range

Festool is launching the new CT MINI and CT MIDI compact dust extractors especially for mobile use, expanding its already comprehensive range of mobile dust extractors with three ultra-convenient and intelligent models designed to keep construction sites clean.

"Extracting dust while working is essential, both for protecting tradespeople's health and for creating a good impression on clients. Plus, you can only achieve precise results if you have a clear view of the surface you are working on. On modern-day construction sites, meanwhile, manoeuvrability and flexibility are becoming increasingly important. Our new CT MINI and CT MIDI compact dust extractors have been specially designed for mobile use. Their compact dimensions and low weight make them ideal for all kinds of assembly, installation and renovation work," says Andreas Buck, Product Manager for mobile dust extractors at Festool. The highlights of the two compact all-rounders are that they can fit in any vehicle and that they are extremely easy to transport thanks to their compact dimensions and low weight. Furthermore, they feature a number of sophisticated innovations that make working without dust even easier and more comfortable.

Low weight, compact size and innovative details

The numerous practical functions and features of the new CT MINI and MIDI compact dust extractors are highly impressive. With a container volume of 15 litres, the new CT MIDI for dust classes L and M is the smallest extractor for hazardous dust particles in dust class M. The even smaller CT MINI has a 10-litre container volume and has been developed for use with dust particles in dust class L. Both models score highly in everyday use thanks to their new and intuitive touch control, smooth suction hose and storage shelf for tools and work materials. The large touchscreen control panel makes them easy to operate – even when wearing gloves or if the machine is dirty. The smooth suction hose, meanwhile, not only enables work to progress seamlessly without catching but is also easy to wind and store in the large hose holder. As you would expect, the new compact dust extractors come with the SYSTAINER T-LOC coupling to allow SYSTAINERS to be attached with ease and transported safely. The new cord winder with folding mechanism is equally practical, since this makes it possible to wind up the cord in a few simple steps and put it away quickly. These handy features are joined by a multitude of others, such as manual cleaning and the ability to easily change the main filter from the outside, to ensure that work can be carried out for long periods while also protecting health. Thanks to integrated Bluetooth® technology, the mobile dust extractor can be started automatically via the Bluetooth® battery pack or the remote control, thus saving the user having to walk over to the extractor. Manual cleaning of the main filter and filter bag means the suction power can be restored if the filter or filter bag is clogged, ensuring consistently high suction power ex works and therefore significantly larger filling capacity. A further practical function is automatic suction hose detection, which enables the CTM MIDI to set the correct suction hose diameter automatically. The main filter can be changed from the outside in a single step, while the large wheels with robust steel axle provide maximum range of movement in day-to-day work. The new compact dust extractors will be available from January 2019.
