Festool Cleaning Kit..


Hey guys.. as some of you may know i just got a ct 36 ac extractor.. i want to compliment it with a cleaning kit i can attach to the hose dock..

My question is, is the festool compact cleaning kit compatible with the 36mm hose the AC comes with? Its listed as 36mm attachment but i heard it only works with the smaller diameter hose..

I think the 36mm hose fits over the attachments, the 27mm goes inside. Check out the forums at festoolownersgroup to get more info

I have the midi and the smaller hose fits inside the attachments, that's where I came up with that

If the 36mm fits over the attachment, the planex hose should work with it. Shane from festool told me the 36mm planex hose will work with my ts 55..

Yep the planex hose only works with tools where the hose is the female not the male end. But that kit looks like it is a female fitting for the one. Post some bigger pics of it.

The Planex hose WILL NOT fit the Compact Cleaning set or any other set where the hose is the male and the wand is female. It will work when the hose is the female and the wand is the male.

The Compact Cleaning set will work with a standard 36 mm hose.

The compact kit is kinda weak. I started with the compact kit but returned it and got the installers kit instead - worth every dollar if you will be using it regularly. The plastic pieces in the compact kit would not hold up to everyday work and are not suited to picking up anything more than sawdust. Also, after just a few uses, the plastic was caking up with drywall dust.

Re: Festool Cleaning Kit..


Ok so I'm guessing the planex hose won't work with any cleaning kit? I just didn't want to get a kit that included a hose since I already have the planex hose..

But is it true that the small hose fits inside the cleaning wand and the large 36mm hose fits on the outside? If that's the case the planex hose will work with the compact kit..

I believe the only kit that does not include the hose is the Compact. If you really want to use the hose with the Compact set, you can cut the bell off the hose end of the bend section of the wand. The hose will then slip over the wand hand piece. The hand tools slip into he hose without modification.

I've had my Compact set for 4 years. It's done well for me.
