RO 90 and vacuum
« on: January 30, 2021, 02:01 AM »
Hi, do you all know if there is a package deal for an RO sander and vacuum?

I've been browsing the forums and seen mention of $100.00 off, and also mention of 10% off.

You missed it by one year. The good news is the CT-15 is hundreds of dollars less than the original full featured vacuum that had the promotion. So you’re no longer tied to a purchase to get a deal on a dust extractor. It’s a win-win.

Well.............sorta.   But not really.


In exchange for the cost reduction , you give up real features on the 15. Most notably are the hose and its storage compartment.   And at the end of the day all customers lose/lose  because the discount was on any vac you wanted to purchase with a sander.

Well not sure if I completely agree? Since the time I’ve started buying Festool I’ve sold three midi vacuums to get the newest feature set. So anyone jumping into the green pond today is getting the latest DT. Also I’m not sure if the Midi is worth twice the money as the CT15. I own both and if I was first starting out I would be hard pressed to spend the extra US Pesos. Rather put the money into a second tool? Just my $02...

Where I live the CT 15 is about 140 bucks cheaper than the Midi. And the AS hose is about 130 bucks, so ... I don't particularly see the value of the CT 15 if you want the AS hose anyway.

Here the 15 is about 200 cheaper, but that’s the set version with the wand. ext. tubes an nozzles.

I bought the ct 26 almost 5-8 years ago and never looked back. Love the thing. My family has started carting it around the house for general vacuuming as well. I see a separator in my future. And the blue tooth I just put on a couple of months ago. I thought it was overpriced but it's a very handy device and I would certainly do it again. Now, these separators seem very over priced as well.
