Main Applications

  • Removal of carcinogenic and pathogenic dusts
  • Workshop and on site cleaning
  • Automatic operation with power and air tools
  • Wet and dry extraction

Festool dust extractors are fitted with a circuit breaker for safety when a connected load of 1200 watts is exceeded.
Some tools that draw higher wattage can trigger the circuit breaker and if initiated requires the reset button above the socket to be pushed in and reset.
When requiring to use larger wattage tools with dust extraction it is recommended the tool is operated off a separate outlet and a Bluetooth system can then be used to switch the dust extractor on and off as required.
When using tools it is recommended you always use the correct consumable for best results as even lower wattage tools can trip the circuit breaker if the system isn’t matched to the application. (e.g.: saw blade not matched to material)

Safe dust removal

Every extractor can be fitted with add on modules to suit different requirements including air modules, power socket with continuous current and EAA module.

Easy handling

The large handle makes it easy to manoeuvre to CTH into place. The integrated locking brake and oversized wheels ensure stability when stationary.
