In Detail

Festool 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

The L class CTL 26 E has many features for a healthier working environment. The compact high performance turbine motor ensures constantly strong suction, combined with the step-less speed adjustment, means the correct power is always selected. Approved for dust catagory L (.1mg/m³) it can also be used for wet collection without dust bag. The 26 litre container holds the self cleaning filter collection bag; these are made from flexible fleece material and collapse when the machine is switched off so that dust is then shaken off and falls down and compacted into the bag. As a result no deposits form on the inside wall to give maximum suction and prevent clogging, plus 100% of the bag is utilised. The machine is also fitted with a main filter removable for cleaning and easy maintenance. A wet filter is available for wet pick-up.

The integrated appliance socket (max 1,800W) has an automatic on/off switch which allows the extractor to stay on for a short time once the tool is switched off. Swivel castors and rear wheels along with an integrated locking brake and rear rollers guarantee safe transport and a firm stance when working. Fitting straight on to all Festool power tools, a floor cleaning kit is also available as an accessory. The rubber insulated 7.5m mains cable is fitted to the rear of the head of the machine and can be wound inside along with the hose for storage and transporting.

Supplied with 3.5m x 27mm antistatic hose, 1 self clean filter bag and 1 cord holder. An accessory holder is available so that a cleaning set can be attached to the extractor. Please note; 110V machines are not supplied with a plug.

Bought to replace an ageing Fein Dustex and though expensive, this superb extractor is an ideal compliment to my Kapex. Powerful, relatively quiet and beautifully built, this machine does exactly as stated and continues the Festool tradition of performance and quality. However, I wish Festool would provide the option to purchase the machine with a 36mm hose rather than the standard 27mm as it is a much better option for the Kapex. Luckily my old Fein hose fits the extractor and the saw.

I purchased the CTL26 at the Warrington branch and was very impressed at the courteous and professional manner of Paul Otter. Exemplary product knowledge and super service. Well done Paul and thank you.

I bought this extractor to replace a Nilfisk machine which was on it's last legs, and which was consuming bags at an alarming rate. I own other Festool products and therefore know the quality of the machines.
When first switched on, I thought the power adjustment was not working correctly - it was so quiet I assumed it was on 'low power' and I was trying to turn it up. In fact, it was on maximum power already! This is a really quiet extractor.
I opted for the CTL26 over the Midi as the hose lead connects to the front (not the top as on the Midi), the much larger capacity and the larger wheels which can run over obstructions and extension leads more effectively than the Midi.
Suction power is excellent, as you would imagine. Video reviews (New Brit Workshop in particular) show that dust is clumped in the bag, making best use of the available space. I've not used mine enough to fill a bag enough to comment.
The ability to attach a Systainer to the top is very useful - a toolbox or Systainer with a piece of MFT surface on the top is at a good height for storage or small jobs. I have made a ply box for my cyclone which attaches to the top of the CTL26, which means the extractor and cyclone will move around as one unit. Bags are available for about £3 each.
Highly recommended.

great dust extraction

this is a great dust extractor, use it for all my tools everyday and still going strong after few years. My only issue is the brake.. Mine snapped off after the first week ! but don't let that put you off its never been a problem too me and the rest of the unit is of festool's usual fantastic build quality.

Great extractor, Quiet and very good quality of course.

Very well made and robust. It is much quieter than I expected and also very big, probably too large for my needs, however this is not a criticism rather an observation. If I had visited an Axminster branch as I intended, I would probably have gone for the Midi.
Also this model on special offer is NOT the AutoClean one, if you want the Autoclean order model no: CTL 26 AC E

Great Machine and Price

I bought this and the Rotex 90 sander - both from Axminster. In some cases Axminster are a little more expensive than others, but for both the sander and the dust extractor Axminster came up trumps. Either way I'm normally prepared to pay a little more since you do get 1st class service with Axminster - it's really refreshing that nothing is too much hassle for them and they really do put you first. The dust extractor does come with a 27mm hose - although you might not think so when you open the box - they put it in the dust compartment during transit - so don't panic when you first open the box. Sturdy + 3 year warranty with all the features you would expect from Festool with their systainer docking on the top of the vac. I agree with Geoffrey Laycock that Festool instructions for some of its tools can be poor, but no real issue with the instructions in this case. Afterall it's a shoo vac - so long as you've used a vacuum cleaner in your life you should have no trouble working out how to use it.
