CXS Compact Cordless Drill

Compact cordless drills continue to flood the market offering users lighter more versatile drilling and fastening options. Festool users will be glad to see the all new CXS Compact Cordless Drill come to market in June of this year.
The CXS Compact cordless drill is the latest, and by far the smallest, extension of Festool’s Li-Ion drill platform. Featuring the FastFix chuck system, the CXS can be used with the Centrotec chuck, keyless chuck, or a right angle attachment that allows you to access even the tightest spaces. As you would expect, the CXS features exceptional ergonomics, with a battery design that removes the bulk from the handle, ensuring maximum comfort
over extended use.

  • Durable Tough inside and out, the CXS features sophisticated electronics that protect the tool and batteries from overcurrent, undervoltage, and overheating.
