Stand in awe, woodworkers! Festool has a fresh range of cordless drills

Look, there’s no denying that Festool builds the highest quality, most technologically advanced, and let’s face it, coolest power tools money can buy. So it’s big news when the best in the world trots out its latest tech range of cordless drills. And that’s just what  happened!

Best of all, when Festool builds cordless drills, it doesn’t just do one. It does them all. So whatever your application, and no matter how many you need, there’s a brand new latest generation Festool cordless drill perfectly suited to do all those jobs. Impeccably.

For example, if it’s all about performance, and size doesn’t matter (really?) then you will pretty well not go wrong with the Festool Cordless Drill CXS 2,6-Plus. Lightweight, yet astoundingly strong, the 900 gram ergonomic C-shaped 10.8-volt CXS is super-torquey, yet nimble enough to bore into even the hardest-to-reach nooks and crannies.

The CXS’ Centrotec quick-change tool chuck, extraordinary compact C body design and balanced, poised mass distribution make it ideal for overhead work. Its twelve-stage torque adjustment and torque switch-off bring precision fastening, while a lithium-ion battery ensure longest sustained usage, and a charge indicator and LED light make it the perfect professional partner.

Cordless Drill CXS comes packed in its own modular Festool Systainer SYS3 carton complete with a Centrotec quick-change FastFix keyless chuck and tool key,  a double Centrotec battery pack, the charger, a magnetic bit holder, and a belt clip. It is of course all covered by Festool’s all-inclusive warranty.

Other Festool cordless drills include the unique featherlight C-shape C 18-Basic with all the benefits of the CXS and a few of its own, too. Like an interchangeable head, angle attachment, eccentric attachment and depth stop to handle any and every lighter weight drilling or screwdriving task. 

C18 Basic features Centrotec quick tool changing and even switches from screwdriving to drilling without on the fly changing torque settings. This ultra-lightweight Festool comes in at under 600 grams when using a 20% lighter and 50% more compact Li-HighPower battery pack. It is shipped in a similar package to the CSX. 

Packing all the advantages and features of the CSX, the Festool Cordless Drill TSX instead comes in a classic T-shaped chassis rather than a C shape drill, but it lacks none of those SX advantages of power and strength. This perfectly balanced compact T drill finds its way in even tighter spots than the CSX can manage, making it ideal to work with in the most cramped of spaces.

And if you need that T design convenience in an even lighter, wieldier package, then the  convenience Festool Cordless Drill T 18 Basic carries the C18 Basic’s incredible lightweight and wieldiness, and unbeatable on the job versatility to a T-body drill in unmatchable Festool power style.

Festool’s incredible Cordless Drills are just a tiny facet of its universe of power tools, accessories, systems and literally every single solution to your woodworking or jobsite needs. Log on to to take a look, but make sure you have the time. Because you will need it once you start browsing, and buying your first, or next Festool!
