The Future of Cordless Extraction – Festool’s New CTC Systainer Extractors 

You said it, they heard it: dust free job sites for all! Festool, the German manufacturer always seeking innovative solutions for tradespeople’s day to day, has released a new dust-extraction system that is sure to make job sites all over the country safer and healthier for tradespeople. 

Festool’s 18-volt range continues to expand, and now includes new cordless extractors for a healthy and dust-free working environment. Whether sawing, sanding or drilling, the cordless extractors in the Systainer format for dust classes L and M are ideal for spontaneous use as well as for servicing tasks and small jobs. 

Always by your side, without a cable  

The new cordless Systainer extractors offer maximum mobility and freedom with minimal weight – perfect for transporting and carrying.  

As always, everything fits inside the system: Extractor, smooth suction hose, cordless tool, T-LOC Systainer connection. The innovative Bluetooth® autostart function or the convenient remote control on the suction hose ensure perfect interaction between the cordless tool and the extractor, as both functions switch on the extractor automatically when the cordless tool starts up.  

Powerful suction from battery power 

The compact cordless extractors offer impressive suction power: the 36-volt turbine (with two 18-volt battery packs) means they’re not lagging behind in terms of power to mains-operated extractors.

The suction power itself can easily be adjusted over three levels, and the appropriate level for the application can be selected, which in turn increases the total battery runtime. With four battery packs and the new TCL 6 DUO dual rapid charger, non-stop operation is now also possible in most cordless applications.  

From September 2022, Festool will be offering a variety of energy sets – conveniently packed in the Systainer³ – and these make the perfect addition to the cordless extractors. There are energy sets for every application, and these are, naturally, compatible with the 18-volt range from Festool.   

A perfect fit in the Systainer system 

In traditional Festool style, the new cordless extractors in the Systainer format can be paired and combined with the entire system from Festool – not only with the cordless tools but also with the entire Systainer range and bott vehicle equipment.

The integrated Bluetooth® technology enables the extractors to interact efficiently with the cordless tools, and Festool has made it even more convenient by integrating a rapid Bluetooth® autostart function via battery pack or remote control.  

The handy remote control positioned on the suction hose itself saves you walking back to the extractor – ideal for interim cleaning tasks, or just for that lazy apprentice we’ve all got on site.  

If that weren’t enough, the smooth suction hose glides over every edge and is agile, ultra-robust and offers extremely flexible handling. In short, the system offers all-round perfection – after all, even the new CTC cordless extractors, chargers and battery packs are fully covered by Festool SERVICE, giving you peace of mind for your day-to-day work.
