CT 15 dust vacuum vs CTM MIDI dust extractor

As the Festool dust extractor range grows, it can be tricky to know where to start and what the differences are between the units.

Two new models that seem quite similar initially are the CT 15l HEPA Class Dust Extractor & CTM MIDI-I 15l M Class Dust Extractor

Both feature the latest design with electronic control panel and both are 15-litre capacity, but truth is they’re worlds apart.

So, in summary…

The new CT 15 clean-up vac is an entry-level unit and will come with a sharper price. It’s purpose-built to clean thoroughly and is perfect for anyone who wants to keep working spaces clear of dust, dirt and water.

The CTM MIDI dust extractor is a compact yet high performance M Class unit, perfect for anyone who needs to keep safe, compliant and efficient on the job site when working with power tools.
