The CT 15 offers Festool-quality HEPA dust extraction at what is for Festool a remarkably inexpensive price. The vac’s design makes the most of its 3.96 gallon container volume and can be used for dust, dirt and water on-site or in the professional or home shop.
If you are considering the CT 15 in comparison with the CT Mini or Midi, bear a few things in mind: The CT 15 doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity and doesn’t have the option of getting it (there is no add-on). And the design doesn’t accommodate stacking Systainers as you can with other Festool vacs. But it does share many of the standard high-quality Festool vac features, including auto-start tool-triggered activation; full HEPA Unit Certification; variable suction; a touch control panel; and the 3 year parts-and-labor warranty. The bag the CT 15 uses is the same as the bag for the CT Mini and Midi.
The CT 15 is durable and lightweight enough for use on the go. The main filter is externally accessible for easy replacement. Initially the vac's hose was non-antistatic, but the current model is antistatic! (The hose is black, like a junior version of the antistatic hose that comes with the CT 36AC.) The CT 15 also comes with convenient crevice/upholstery tools.
Available accessories include a optional extendable handle (204310), an optional smooth sleeved hose (204921), and an optional long-life reusable filter bag (204309).
