    Question Please help me understand my Festool shop vacs

    Hey Festool gurus, I've got three Festool shop vacs. CT36E, CT22E and CT33E. All second hand (I bought one and the other two have been part of other bulk purchases). All are in solid working order. Can someone give me a nice simple explanation of the differences between the three. My end goal is to know which one/s to use and keep and which to sell. Any help is much appreciated. Cheers, Matt

    The 22 & 33 are older (10 years?) so the 36 would be the best to keep, unless it looks like it's had more use. The numbers refer to the bag capacity in litres.

    If you have to keep just one, keep the 36, but they'll all keep going for a very long time.

    The 36 also has slightly better suction.
