Turn Your Festool Vacuum into a Two-Stage Collector

Festool USA’s new CT Cyclone (Item number 204083, listed at $375) essentially turns the company’s line of CT vacuums into two-stage machines. It’s an anti-static pre-separator that removes large particles before they reach the dust collector. In addition to reducing the number of filter bags needed, it also reduces the overall dust load on the main filter. That results in consistently high suction power throughout the work process. When used together, the company says, “the CT Cyclone and CT Dust Extractor form a three-step filtration system for dust and debris”. The new product can be used with all Festool CT 26/36/48 dust extractors, and the best results will come when using the vacuums with tools that create high levels of dust and particulates. The dust-heavy air is swirled into a spiral movement in the cyclone, causing particles to hit the wall of the cyclone and, due to the gravitational force, fall into the collection container. The CT Cyclone has tool-free assembly and is very portable. It’s compatible with all Systainers™ and is a stackable component with compact dimensions and a sturdy design. A hose connector is included. The official product name is the CT-VA-20.
