A Bluetooth-connected Festool remote control to assist cleaning? That may sound too good to be true. In a world where people prioritize convenience more than ever before, though, Festool have created the perfect product to collaborate with dust extractors.

On the face of it the Festool remote control may appear to have more style than substance. However, the video below – showcasing the Bluetooth function on Festool’s CLEANTEC 26 and 36 mobile dust extractors – demonstrates the benefits it brings to the table:

Look at the above dust extractors in more depth here.

Simple remote-controlled extraction

As well as being convenient, the remote control is great for one’s health. Its Bluetooth covers 10m, meaning the mobile dust extractor can be switched on via the Festool remote control directly on the suction hose. That means less bending, less running back and forth and therefore less back pain.

Then you’ve got the main purpose of the extractor itself. Eliminating all dust, it provides a much more salubrious environment to work in. As Festool’s Marketing Manager, Jonathan Burcham, says: “Efficient and dust-free work has never been simpler.” The Festool remote control is a big factor in that.
