So I had heard about the next price increase coming for Festool,. I saw the ads here in PT actually saying "get ready, buy now." whatever.. I heard it may be accessories only, but no, just heard from store manager how much sanders are going up. HOLY hell, sorry, 80 more bucks for rotex sanders, and $60 more for the dts4 and probably the rts, ets. And on it goes. damn you gotta be a corporation to buy this stuff soon. Average Joe gets no chance to buy a $700 RO150 and couple hundred on sand paper, dang...

Maybe its time to look into the Fein tool line. I don't think they have raised prices like festool.

I know, sorry to sound like I'm complaining. It's not quite a love hate relationship, except I could not say I hate anything about the company or the tools. I'm on board already, and will continue to enjoy using their killer tools. Just glad I already have a good start on the necessary sanders I would want.

The Planex will give us what we need. If we need any more then we will check Fein more. We don't have any but have tried their sanders and vacuum's out, a contractor we know has a bunch of Fein tools.

I have had a planex225 with ct26 hepa filter vacuum, had to buy the bigger hose as the 26 comes with the smaller hose.It by far was the best investment I have made in the 36 years in the business. Sure they will charge a premium price for what they sell you,but you will pay for quality. I have had all my costumers totally impressed by the no dust to clean up and it paid for itself on the first job.i will keep buying festool.

What do you mean bigger hose? Longer or bigger diameter?

1 and7/16 inches verses 27 mm. You need the bigger hose for the suction. I use it for extensive drywall patches,sanding ceiling, walls to get trash and roller tracks off. With the bigger hose it makes it possible and easier to sand ceilings. I swap to the 27mm and use a festool 125ets for the areas the other doesn't get.This setup plus all the other stuff I have bought makes for a nicely finished wall.

I'd imagine that if you buy the CT36 auto clean that was designed to be used with the Planex that it probably
comes with the larger and if it doesn't then you probably don't need it, at least with that vac.
