Festool describes its recently released compact cordless drills – the TXS and the CXS – as “lightweight [900g] and powerful”. Offering impressive high torque with a 10.8-volt lithium-ion battery, they feature: a FastFix chuck; Centrotec quick-change system; and elbow adapter. The very short body and even weight distribution facilitate work in hard-to-reach places and overhead. Two versions are available: the C and the T models. The only thing that sets the two apart is their geometry – everything else is identical. Despite its compact design, the integrated bit holder takes four bits; the LED ensures that dark corners and angles are illuminated; the capacity-indicator displays the battery’s charge level; and with the belt clip the drills are always close to hand.

The XS drills are compatible with Festool’s Centrotec quick-change system, which combines the bit holder and chuck to make switching from one application to another quick and easy. This enables drill bits and other bits, and all other system components, such as hook drivers and countersinkers, to be connected. All bits can also be used in the direct holder. The FastFix chuck now has a chucking capacity of up to 10mm. Balls in the Centrotec system centre the hexagonal tools, which allows for optimal power transmission and true-running precision much greater than conventional chucks. The elbow adapter makes it easy to screw around corners; and allows hidden screws to be reached. Thanks to FastFix, Centrotec can be fitted in a single movement.
