The combination of Bluetooth module on your Festool dust extractor and remote control on the extractor hose saves you a trip to the extractor: Simply start dust extraction from the hose using the remote control. Ideal for small, occasional cleaning tasks – simply switch to cleaning mode, even when the dust extractor is in AUTO mode. The Bluetooth module on the mobile dust extractor communicates with the Festool Bluetooth battery packs (sold separately) in addition to the new remote control. These battery packs ensure that even a cordless tool starts the mobile dust extractor automatically when switched on. This now enables you to benefit from Festool's entire dust-free system when working with Festool cordless products too.

Remote control uses a CR2032 button cell battery, included. Up to five remote controls can be paired with one vac, additional remote controls sold separately.

  • Start your dust extractor with remote control directly on the suction hose
  • Ideal for occasional cleaning tasks – without having to change the mobile dust extractor from AUTO to MAN mode
  • The Bluetooth module also communicates with Festool Bluetooth battery packs (sold separately)
  • Retrofit set for all CT 26, 36, 48 models

  • Enables the dust extractor to be started automatically when the cordless tool is switched on (compatible Bluetooth battery pack required, sold separately)

Customer Questions
How do I retrofit this to my older CT 36?

Your CT 36 has a cover plate on the front where the Bluetooth module is installed. It's just two screws and it pops right in! Check out the video below which shows the installation process.https://youtu.be/6caFQjbBPVo

Does the remote control require a battery to operate? If so, what kind?

It uses a common type battery cell, CR2032. The remote control comes with the battery included.

How long does it stay connected - all day or all week or for months...?
I've connected the Bluetooth to my ct 26 . Did everything it said but it's not turning the vacuum on or off. How can I reconnect the Bluetooth?

Festool has an instructional video for installing and pairing the Bluetooth module, link below. This should help you get them working.https://youtu.be/LG6S_7ARS3E?t=66

Is this comparable with the CTL-SYS?

No, it will not work with the CTL-SYS. It is only compatible with the CT 26/36/48 models.
