Festool Agrees - Small Drills Are Cool Too Hothttp://www.tool-rank.com/media/listing/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/d0/34/3d/festool-cxs-82-1411594205.jpg
Ultra compact drills are on everyone's wish list and Festool now has their fans covered with their very own 10.8-volt. Their new CXS drill has a special design that is said to offer better ergonomics and more comfort. Most other ultra compact drills use a battery-in-handle design because there is really no other place to put the battery. Festool chose to go with a D-handle design similar to their other drills, and moved the battery to the bottom of the drill. This allowed Festool to design the handle around comfort instead of the battery, and it also gave the tool better balance. Anther feature setting the Festool above the rest is its interchangeable chuck system. Torn between a hex chuck drill and a keyless chuck drill? The Festool CXS gives you both in one tool. The CXS battery is capable of driving over 200 screws on a single charge and can be fully recharged in under 45 minutes.
The CXS starts at $225 which includes 2 batteries, a charger, the drill, and both chucks. For $275 you get everything in the first kit plus a right angle chuck. Both kits also come with a Systainer T-Loc storage box. The CXS will launch on June 1st 2011
