Excellent product. Used one for years at work and finally bought one for my own shop. You'd think from the pictures that you get all four cutters as part of the package but they are part of a separate package. If you intend to use any size …

Very happy with my CT Midi. It pulls dust effectively from every tool I have hooked to it, and it's quiet. The tool activation is great. It's so nice not to have to turn on the vacuum, use the tool, turn off the vacuum every time. The anti-static …

If you dread cutting up sheet products, like most woodworkers, you owe it to yourself to look at Festool's circular saw and guide rail system. Everything that Festool makes seems to address everything that is problematical in woodworking . They …

The CT-Mini is a powerful little vacumn for general cleanup but really shines when used with FESTOOL sanders . Not quite powerful enough to use with the TS75 plunge saw or OF1400 router but, it is great for final cleanup after using these. Highly …

Very quiet, very clean, and fairly powerful. The auto function switch failed in mine within weeks but Festool replaced it immediately. The one issue I have with the dust collector is that the tool activated "on" does not work with my Fein detail
In 1925, Gottlieb Stoll and Albert Fezer founded the Festo company, a German manufacturer of high-quality, innovative woodworking machines. Just four years later, the pair developed the first portable chainsaw, a revolutionary tool for consumers and industry alike. When the company tapped its engineering prowess to expand into industrial automation, they adopted the Festool name to refer to the original woodworking line. Over the years, Festool went on to roll out numerous industry benchmarks, including the first orbital sander, the first eccentric sander, the Rotex® dual-mode sander, the first brushless drill driver, and the revolutionary DOMINO® tenon joiner. Today, the Festool name is recognized as an industry leader and revered as the producer of some of the highest quality tools one can own.
Festool has a reputation for meticulous precision, attention to detail, and impeccable ergonomics. Product developers for the company visit real-world shops to study how woodworkers ply their craft. They then design tools that eliminate unnecessary steps, improve accuracy and produce finer results. Festool engineers tailor their tools precisely to the human hand. They study the way woodworkers move and refine the ergonomics to make the motions as natural and comfortable as possible, even with prolonged use.
At Festool, it is regarded as no coincidence that the tools work so well as a system—it is a principle. Each tool is designed with its neighboring tool in mind. Dust extraction, for example, is seamlessly integrated into every tool. Turn the tool on and off and the vacuum automatically turns on and off. The Systainer storage cases that come with every tool click neatly onto one another, as well as on top of the dust extractors. Simply close the case, click it in place and roll your entire workstation to the next work area. The famous Festool guide rails work with routers and plunge cut saws alike, allowing you to pack a small woodworking shop into a couple of Systainer cases. In addition, everything is designed to be operated and adjusted with nothing more than your fingers.
Over the years, Festool has produced numerous patents and new technologies, but they are constantly reassessing old achievements to refine each tool in every possible way. High tolerances, low vibration, excellent heat dissipation and top-quality materials combine to make quiet, comfortable, durable tools that help you work, "Faster, Easier and Smarter."
