Manufacturer: Festool

Price: 375.00
Until recently I used to get frustrated using my Festool TS55 Track saw with dust collection. The issue, I kept getting hooked on the rail or the corner of the board because to hose and cord would snag. It go to the point that I considered taping the two together until I came across the Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778.

What is the Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778

The Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778 an anti-static dust extraction hose with and integrated sleeve that housed the power cord, and protects the surface and edges of the material your working on.

This sleeve helps you work more efficiently and safely by preventing static discharge or shocks.  By eliminating the static charge dust, dirt and particulates do not stick to the hose creating better efficient clearing of the hose.

Durable Sleeve Design

We found that the Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778 has a durable and flexible sleeve design. During our use we did not experience any binding or kinking. The sleeve shrouds the hose to help prevent the rib of the hose from catching on materials which may damage the surface. The sleeve also allows the hose to easily navigate over edges of work tables for easier work flow while sanding.

The Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778 is equipped with an integrated Plug It Cord that connects the vacuum to the tool. As mentioned above, this cord is completely enclosed within the sleeve.

Improvement

After using the Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve, I could not think of improvements. I suppose I’d like to see a systainer box to store and transport it.

The 10m hose I have is a bit long for my workshop but they also offer the Festool 500276 Hose w/ Sleeve in SYS 3 Systainer 3.5m. This 11’6” long hose is probably more suited for my shop. It’s also $125 less money.

Overall Impression

The Festool Integrated Plug-it Cord and Sleeve 201778 is basically a 2-in-1 tool. Its faster, easier to use, is anti-static and doesn’t snag on your work. Festool has become an industry leader with innovative high quality woodworking and finish carpenter tools, that solve problems, this integrated hose is another example.
