My CTs are old. When did FT start including a filter cleaning mechanism?

@Michael Kellough the now-discontinued CT 22/33 units had one on the back of the machine. The new MINI/MIDI have a lever on the side for manual filter cleaning.

All, we have received a notification from Festool USA that due to impacts on their supply chain, the introduction of the CT 15 has been delayed until April 17th. This delay impacts all Festool retailers in the U.S.

For those who have ordered from Tool Nut, let me know if you have any questions or contact our customer service team at info@toolnut.com.

Thanks,
Shane

Is this that their supply chain is has under produced or can't deliver produced items because of Covid-19 issues ?

@xedos I think this would be a question for Festool since they better know the reason(s) for the delay and what, if any, impact there has been from COVID-19.

While that may very well be true - what do you think the chances of them tell us anything are  ?

Since you volunteered the info , It seemed the best person to ask with the most reasonable chance of getting an answer was your's truly.  Alas, the party line of little or no comment from Festool seems to be alive and well.

@xedos I'm just trying to keep our customers updated on the status of their orders.

I'm sure we'll see more and more manufacturers impacted by COVID-19. Especially those with manufacturing in China, which would not impact Festool since they produce in Germany. However, Germany is also impacted.

Festool stated that they had higher than expected demand for the CT 15. They stated there are disruptions to their supply chain that they are monitoring. It takes 4-6 weeks for product to get from Festool Germany to Festool USA. Which would indicate the CT 15 units are already on their way to the U.S.

I'm in Germany right now, just like The Netherlands the entire country is shutting down to prevent the spread of the corona virus.

Same here, and it seems that it equals over whole Europe.
We’re shuttled home with home office for a good period. There are delays all over, but there’s distribution, albeit food and life necessity’s are clear priorities.

Shane,
 Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't seen the charge on my card and wondered when the vac would ship. A few more weeks cause of a worldwide pandemic seems pretty reasonable. Crazy time we are living in, thanks for spending all the time you do here answering questions and such.

I have an order in for this with toolnut as well, placed it a couple nights ago. I have a ct26, I figure this one will be a good dedicated mft cart vac. Looking forward to it but no need to spread a virus anymore than needed just to get anyone a new vacuum. Thanks for the updates!

FOG Friends,

A friendly reminder that the CT 15 ships in just a week. We have them in the warehouse now ready to ship.

Is this feature-rich Festool HEPA vac right for you?

@ironb welcome to the  forum. Yes, it's accurate based on the latest information we have from FUSA. Orders are shipped in the order they are received.

Sorry for the slower than usual response, I'm off work Thu/Fri of this week.

Hiya @Shane Holland ,

First, thank you for your reply on your day off.

Second, your reply makes me wonder...  When we order from Toolnut, are you shipping from New York, or is Festool shipping from their warehouse direct to the customer?

Thanks!

@ADKMedic with only 2-3 exceptions, we ship all Festool items from our own warehouse in NY. One example where we ship direct are the two longest guide rails.

FYI, I called Toolnut yesterday for a CT15 I ordered 3 weeks ago and they called festool while I was in the phone with them and they are not expected to be available till the end of August. I ended up changing my order to a mini and it will be here Monday. Can’t wait.

@bigshaw929 thanks for sharing that update with the forum members. I've not seen any communication from FUSA about delays for the CT 15 recently. We did have delays when this product first launched earlier in the year.

We will collaborate with Festool USA to try to get more accurate ETAs on our open orders. Apologies for my previous comment about our website being accurate. That was based on the latest information we had at the time.
