CT15 Dust Extractor
« on: September 28, 2021, 06:11 AM »
Greetings,

Yesterday I finally found a DF500 Domino for sale on the Festool recon site and I immediately ordered it. I would like to purchase a CT15 dust extractor to use with the domino and later with a rotex sander.

Will the rotex and domino switch the CT15 on when I turn them on?  I know the CT15 does not have Bluetooth but I think the is more useful with cordless tools.

Thanks,

J

Yes, it will work exactly like that.  Connect the tool to the CT, auto mode, pull the trigger and the CT will also start.

The only other thing that I would mention on this is that the CT 15 comes with a non-anti static hose. While that should not affect the Domino in a material way it could affect the Rotex sander as sanders tend to generate more static. Where you are located and how dry it gets there certainly makes a difference as well.

Mine are Pro90 sanders. The CT15 and non-static hose work well with them, as well as with two other non-Festool sander/belt sander. The only feature I don't like about the CT15 is its membrane switch. I need to push hard (as compared to the CT26's knob switch I had) every time I use it.

Thanks for the help. So the price goes up tomorrow...I've seen two prices this week - $349 and $399. I guess that is going to be the increase.

I received my CT15 dust extractor recently. I also ordered a systainer for my dominos and cutters (I didn't purchase the systainer with dominos/cutters initially) and I ordered a new Rotex RO90. I will continue to monitor Festoolrecon.com for an RO125.

I used the CT15 with my Dewalt orbital sander. Wow, no dust anywhere. I love this extractor. Now I can make another run at cleaning my shop and keep it that way. Well, the Ridgid miter make a lot of dust - but sanding won't!  ;D Maybe I'll purchase a Kapex if one comes up on the recon site.
