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.

Great MachineI have owned this machine for about 3 years now. However I am only an occasional Hobby woodworker and did not think I had used it much and therefore never bothered to see if the bag needed empting. Today, whilst doing some routing with the Basis OF2200 Router table she stated to make a funny noise and then cut out. Thanks to the built in Safety features she cut out due to the Bag being full . When I opened her up she was blocked solid. I can only describe the bag as a Brick . The CTL26 had Packed the Debris in so tight the bag was a solid block. In fact the 36mm hose was blocked up too, right up to the router bit. I emptied the bag which took ages due to the density. I then replaced the same bag and she was off again strong as ever. Must order some new bags right away. What a Dummy !

SuperbBought 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.

FabulousI 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.

great dust extractionthis 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.
