Festool Cleantec Vacuum CT 48 E HEPA Dust Extractor

Breathe easier with the Festool Cleantec Vacuum CT 48 E HEPA Dust Extractor. It's Festool's highest-capacity, full-unit, HEPA-certified vacuum for maximum dust control at the source when using power tools that generate a lot of dust. Simply plug the tool into the outlet socket on the vacuum for easy, tool-triggered activation. The adjustable suction force lets you regulate the amount of suction for your particular task, while consuming less energy than a constant-on vacuum.

The Sys-Dock on top can be stacked with Festool Systainers (sold separately) to carry all the tools you need for the job. It also stores & protects the hose when not in use. The HEPA filter element greatly limits your dust exposure & keeps your work area cleaner.

Great for commercial or household use. Use wet or dry. Includes HEPA filter, reusable Self-Clean filter bag, & anti-static hose.

HEPA filtration offers better dust extraction because a HEPA filter can trap 99.99 percent of dust particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter (a micron equals one millionth of a meter). Replacement HEPA filter elements and filter bags are sold separately.

INTENDED USE: The CT 48 E HEPA Dust Extractor is suitable for extracting non-hazardous dust, dirt, sand, shavings, etc. It is also designed, as specified, for vacuuming water. The CT 48 E is designed for commercial and/or household use, outdoor use, and indoor storage. The filtering performance of the overall unit, which is fitted with a HEPA filter element, corresponds to HEPA quality H 13 (medium degree of filtration 99.5%). All CT extractors fitted with the HEPA filter element have HEPA certification both for the filter material and the whole dust extractor.
