Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy a Festool vacuum?
Festool is great for producing some of the leading vacuums in the entire umbrella of the industry. But what makes them stand out above the rest? Here are a few brief reasons:
1. Quality in Design
A Festool purchase is one that you'll appreciate the longer you use the product. They're made with quality in mind, having parts that are strong and durable.
This goes down the screws and bolts used to the accessories provided with each purchase.
2. Creates a Healthier Work Atmosphere
This is a literal statement. Festool vacuums are equipped with filters and airtight containers that push in the dirt without letting it back out from any vents or openings in the vacuum.
Because there are no openings until you open the dispenser, the air quality around the vacuum, working area, and vicinity all become cleaner.
People have done air quality tests with a Festool and the results were overwhelmingly positive.
Plus, some Festool vacuums contain HEPA filters to boot. These can absorb airborne bacteria and spores for mildew, mold, and other fungal matter.
3. Great as a Standalone Vacuum
Even Festool vacuum is usable as a household cleaning device. You can clean hardwood floorboards, carpets, upholstery, and your entire garage with any of their products.
They're not limited to only wood and drywall sander attachments, or any other power tool. You can take your Festool anywhere there's a floor that needs cleaning.
The size of the machines and their durability make them excellent for heavy-duty jobs that require good ventilation and a nontoxic working area, such as indoor and vehicle painting areas, interior construction, and abandoned properties being cleaned.
Remember, many Festools are compatible or come with HEPA filters for you to place on the inside to keep the unwanted substances free from your lungs.
4. Easy Assembly
Some industrial and shop vacuums are difficult to put together. Every Festool that's sold comes with a detailed manual that lists what must be done before cleanup can commence.
When accessories are provided, recommendations for use are included. There are no special tools needed to put together a Festool since many are ready to use after being unboxed.
5. Has Travel-Friendly Products
Some Festool vacuums, such as the CT Mini shown in the fifth review, are easy to carry in vehicles and weigh less than some corded vacuums.
They're not limited to only large products with 35-pound weight scales. There's a vacuum for everyone, including those that won't clean with them on a daily occurrence.
6. Outstanding Warranty
Every Festool vacuum has a warrant period of three years. In that time, if any damages occur that are covered by the warranty, Festool will either fix or replace the unit at no charge to the customer.
The warranty also covers theft and replacement of specific parts. Before you purchase a Festool vacuum, remember to check if registration is automatic during the purchase.
In some cases, it might be necessary for you to register by visiting the company's website. In this case, Festool gives users 30 days to register for the three-year warranty. It's recommended that you contact the seller for additional warranty stipulations, especially before going about repairs on your own.
Which Festool vacuum do you think is the best for you? If you've already chosen one of the products shown, don't forget to check whether or not you have any existing tools that are compatible with the vacuum.
Some of Festool's vacuums are better for certain tools over others. And others can even perform as wet and dry vacuums.
Some Festools can weigh nearly 40 pounds and others come in at a little over a pound. Research the Festools that pique your interest, then double-check that it has the correct features.
Many of the products look identical in their product description. You'll find that the one you end up buying might be the last vacuum you purchase for a long time.
