Versatile – Combined with the Festool Fast Fix chuck system, the C 18 drill can each do the job of five or more application-specific drill
Efficient – Extremely efficient, energy-sipping EC-TEC brushless motors deliver more power, longer run time and fewer trips to the charge
Tough inside and out – Festool C-Drills feature brushless motors that have been tested to over a million screws, as well as sophisticated electronics
Powerful Batteries – An compact 2.6 Ah 18 V battery making the drill lighter and overhead applications easier for less fatigue

EC-TEC motor

The EC-TEC drive concept generates an extraordinary amount of power while consuming extremely low amounts of energy.

Torque shut-off

Intelligent technology ensures the optimum screwdriving force for every material.


Speed control for adjusting to all types of materials.


Makes changing routing, sawing, planing, sanding, drilling and screwdriving tools easier.
