Features and Capabilities
Variable suction force
With a simple turn of the dial, CFM and power consumption are regulated at the CT for greater dust extraction control.
Self-cleaning filter bag
Collapsible bag design eliminates dust cake between cycles, delivering full and sustained suction force and longer bag life.
Includes a standard-equipment HEPA filter, rated to remove 99.99% of dust and particulate down to .3 microns.
Anti-static design helps to eliminate dust particle buildup on the hose exterior, while also preventing clogging and errant shocks.
Why dust extraction matters
Dust wastes time and money.
Every minute that you spend cleaning a job site is a minute that you're not doing more important work. If you didn't have to spend extra time cleaning up at the end of the day, how would you spend your time? Would you work on other projects? Would you get home to your family earlier? You certainly wouldn't spend it sweeping out your work site.
Dust is bad for your health.
Dust contains toxins and is hazardous for your health. According to the Center for Disease Control, long-term exposure to wood dust can cause a wide variety of serious respiratory issues. Your health is too important to be jeopardized by something as small as dust.
Dust is unprofessional.
If you leave a mess for a client, you're not going to be invited back. What's more, dust particles can hang in the air for hours or even days. Imagine how pleased your customers will be if you're able to guarantee that their homes will remain dust-free during a project.

These bags inflate and deflate with the cycling of the unit for maximum suction force and efficiency. An integrated hose garage has been added for easy hose storage. As with all Festool dust extractors, the CT26 utilizes the Sys-Dock system that facilitates the use/storage of one or more Systainers to the top of the unit. Will work wet or dry with no complex conversion, and is remarkably quiet.

From the Manufacturer
Dust control is an integral part of the Festool system and design philosophy. That is why the CT 26 is equipped with tool-triggered auto start functionality so that when you plug your tool into the supplied outlet socket, the vacuum cycles with the tool. This represents greater efficiency in dust extraction, noise reduction, and with less energy consumption versus a constant-on unit. Variable suction force allows you to regulate the suction based on your tasks. A small detail sander may not require the full 137 CFM of this unit, but a router may require it. This unit comes standard our new self-cleaning bag which prevents dust particles from caking inside the bag which reduces suction. We further optimize efficiency with the low-profile, flat-top design that allows the CT top to double as a tool rest as well as an integrated hose garage and docking station that allows the connection of Festool Systainers (not included) for easy transport and storage. The low center of gravity, integrated center handle, and extra large wheels make navigating rough terrain in the shop or jobsite easy without tipping over. A parking brake can even be locked to prevent unintentional roll off or drifting. The supplied 11-1/2 ft. anti-static (AS) hose is long enough for power tool and general work site clean up tasks. For wet (water) clean up tasks, the CT will shut off automatically when full thanks to Level Stop technology. With an industrial design for heavy use the CT is equipped with over 24 feet of 12 gauge cord. A cord wrap is supplied to attach to the rear of the unit. With 137 CFM and only 62 dB (on the low setting), the CT 26 can quickly and quietly remove large amounts of debris, with minimal noise. A HEPA filter comes standard and offers the ultimate in clean air and filtration. The CT 26 is a good choice for the shop or the jobsite for all your power tool extraction and clean-up needs. Capacity: 6.9 gallons (26 liters). Weight: 28.7 lbs. Made in Germany.
Top customer reviews
My first Festool product. We needed a replacement house vacuum and my wife, after investigating popular manufactures, settled on Festool because comparative performance data was readily available on their site. We both were surprised by the lack of real information on sites like Miele et. al. This vacuum is replacing a Fein III which we both were pleased with but had to be reassigned to the basement for renovation work. After understanding innovations of Festoool, we rather quickly concluded this company has earned our money. The bag and filter design is completely new rather than an improvement on one that is fundamentally flawed. The Fein design is the latter, we have come the realize. We have always used the Fein hepa system and every time I've replaced the bag Ive always been annoyed by the amount of dirt which gets past the bag; this accelerates the replacement time of a very expensive hepa filter. The second bit in support of my Fein position is the fit of the bag; the reason it doesn't fit, the reason it can never be filled at more than 50% capacity is because it appears to me the hepa system was an afterthought. Then consider disorganized and incompetently marketed Fein accessories; it was a quick decision. I have another Fein product called a multi tool and it's brilliant. I wouldn't be surprised if Fein is designing a response to Festool, however, what I find very interesting is Festool has taken an Apple-like approach to its products, that is, integration is primary. Fein must reinvent if it wishes to compete with Festool.
I don't recommend any other overpriced Festool products, but their vacs are actually worth the cost.
