So I need to get a new dust extractor. I have some Festool equipment and some hoses that of course I would like to use.

Is there a hose connector that would make the Festool hoses compatible with the GAS 35 L

Hello emstuv.
Interesting question. I've thought myself about using Festool hoses with my Bosch vacs as they seem to have a much better range of lengths, anti-stat etc more readily available than Bosch.
The Bosch inlet to the vacs are quite large. The part of the hose that fits into it has something like a 60mm od. The same part on the Festool has something like a 44mm od as far as I can tell. Perhaps you can supply the measurements for your Festool hose inlet end?
Bosch do do a reducer that goes from around 60mm to 45mm according to one reviewer SEE HERE. Can't be sure if it would work to make your Festool hoses fit a Bosch vac though without more exact od/id (outside/inside diametre) figures.
Like I say, if you could supply the od/id figures for your Festool hose - inlet/vac end - I'll try and do the same for my Bosch vacs when I can. Sure we can find a solution from there.
