Author Topic: Wrong Connector on brand new D 36 x 7m - AS/CT dust collection hose from Amazon?  (Read 741 times)

Yikes!!

Just received my first upgraded Festool antistatic hose and I think there is a mistake.  The Amazon website clearly states that the ends of the hose can be hooked together to prevent loss of dust during transport (and two of these type hoses can be linked together.)  The two ends of my new hose cannot be connected.   

The reducing connector on my hose does not match the the photo of the hose that Amazon and other seller use  It looks like my hose has a Festool 500670 Reducing sleeve attached. 

Here is a photo of my hose connecter:

Here is a photo of the hose on the festool website:

300223-1" alt="" class="bbc_img" />

Note the different mid portion of the reducing adapter!  Could I ask someone to check their new version D 36 hose and confirm this?

Spoke to FestoolUSA today and learned that the D36 hoses don’t connect end to end or one to another.  Only the D32/27 hoses do that. Error on the Amazon website.
