FESTOOL announced that all of its CT dust extractors (CT Mini, CT Midi, CT 26, CT 36 & CT 48) will be shipped as “certified full unit HEPA dust extractors” in accordance with the EPA’s lead paint removal rule (40 CFR Part 745).
The company says its dust extractors meet the standards of filtering particles to 0.3 microns and provide a seal between the filter and the vacuum to eliminate bypass leakage. If you bought a CT 26, 36 or 48 dust extractor before Oct. 1, a certification document and one free HEPA filter is available from the company.
