CT 22 Handle and Boom Arm re-use on CT 36 or CT 48
« on: April 06, 2022, 01:15 PM »
I currently have a CT 22 with the handle and boom arm installed.  I am looking at upgrading to either a CT 36 or CT 48.  Is it possible to reuse the current mounting hardware, handle and boom arm from my CT 22 on the CT 36 or CT 48?  I'm looking at reducing the cost of having to buy all my parts and pieces.  Thanks

Unless you can modify the current handle you will need a new one for the model you purchase. The CT36 mounts kinda funky going under the vac. I tried modifying a CT48 handle to fit one of my CT36's and it didn't work well, so eventually I found a cheaper CT36 handle. Even the CT36 and CT48 handles do not interchange. You can verify part numbers for the boom arm itself but I would guess it is the same, as the CT36 and CT48 boom arms are identical.

Thanks Peter,
I suspected the handle and mount was going to be an issue.  I may buy a new CT (probably CT36) and the handle.  Then I will look at if I can re-use the boom-arm.  From the pictures I have seen, the boom-arms appear to be the same.  I don't have, nor would use the fold-out legs.  It may be that the different part numbers relate to the fold-out legs.
