Putting an end to clogged filters, the CT 36 AC features an automatic main filter cleaning mechanism that keeps the filter clean and provides a continuous high level of suction. This dust extractor was designed specifically for use with the PLANEX and PLANEX Easy drywall sanders whose 9 inch sanding pads continuously create large amounts of caking dust.
Adjustable AUTOCLEAN feature
Change the frequency of automatic main filter cleaning, or turn it off altogether with the turn of a dial.
Adjustable suction power
Adjust the volume flow up to 137 cubic feet per minute to match the suction to the job. Smaller sanders often work better with less suction.
Auto-start feature built in
Plug a tool into the onboard outlet to have it automatically cycle the dust extractor on and off. Add the optional Bluetooth module for automatic switching with a cordless tool equipped with a Bluetooth battery.
Large diameter, highly flexible suction hose
The included 36 millimetre (1-13/32 inch) hose is incredibly flexible yet durable as well. The antistatic hose prevents dust accumulation inside and outside the hose, keeping airflow unobstructed and the workplace cleaner. The special tabbed fitting allows positive connection to a Planex or Planex Easy and fits over the ports on other tools that accept a 36 millimetre hose.
Stable and compact
With a low centre of gravity and a rectangular body, the dust extractor is space efficient and not prone to toppling. Large wheels easily handle obstructions and the foot brake keeps it from rolling when in transport, loading, or in use.
Built-in hose garage and cord wrap
When the job's done, it's easy to stow the 25 foot power cable and 11-1/2 foot hose on-board.
SYS-Dock allows connection of Systainers
Keep everything together and make fewer trips by stacking and locking your Systainers with tools and accessories on top of the CT dust extractor.
Install an Selfclean filter bag and HEPA filter for the same performance as other CT dust extractors
Not doing drywall today? Swap the high-performance filter with a HEPA filter (not included) and install a Selfclean filter bag (included) for the same performance as the rest of the Festool CT dust extractors.
Converts to wet vaccuum
Replace the HEPA filter with a sponge filter and remove the bag to use the extractor for dust pick-up. A sensor shuts off the unit automatically when maximum fluid level is reached.
Thermal protection built-in
A standard on all Festool dust extractors, the motor features thermal protection. If it gets too hot, the extractor will shut itself off, thereby protecting your investment and preventing costly damage and time consuming repairs.
