Festool CXS Compact Drill

Festool CXS Compact Drill and Driver

When it comes to tools, Festool is a company that takes tool innovation to another level.  Case-in-point:  the Festool CXS Compact Drill.  It’s a compact drill that weighs less than 2 pounds, but it packs enough power for a huge range of DIY projects.  But what makes the CXS Compact truly awesome is its slick design.  Rather than the annoying chucks found on other drills, the CXS uses Festool’s FastFix system, enabling you to switch between a Centrotek chuck, keyless chuck and optional right angle chuck.  Bit changes take about a second with no tools required, and the right angle chuck allows you drill in super tight, difficult to reach places.  Add in a 3 year warranty and super long life lithium-ion battery, and you’ve got the drills dreams are made of.
