Bad turbine on CT 26
« on: January 26, 2021, 12:28 AM »
I recently bought a Festool ct 26 on Craigslist only issue is it came with a bad turbine. I need someone to guide me as to where can I purchase a replacement turbine. Also would like a quote from Festool if they perform the repair and how would I go about shipping it.

You can order a new turbine from any dealer or Festool directly. Look above on the menu, go to Additional Websites > Spare Parts Catalog to find your model and the parts you need.

I think it was a mistake to buy this vac with a bad turbine unless you paid $50 for it and know how to repair it yourself.

I would not be surprised if shipping + parts + labour from Festool will cost you $500.

are you 100% its the turbine? It might be something simple like brushes.  Either way looks like the turbine is about 100 bucks plus whatever the shipping is.

So I bought a ct 26 with a bad turbine but you guys will not believe my luck I got home and plugged it in and it works just fine suction is equivalent to my ct48 auto works fine. I scored big time I’ve used it sanding for a straight hour and no issues. I can say I bought the worlds cheapest ct26 for only 60$ dollars.
