Festool USA launches new cordless power tool lineup

Festool USA, the North American division of the German toolmaker, recently announced the launch of the newest additions to its cordless power tool lineup, powered by 18-volt, 5.2 Ah lithium-ion batteries and featuring the company’s patented EC-TEC brushless motor technology.

“These new products are just the tip of the iceberg in our ever-expanding range of cordless tools that are every bit as capable as their corded counterparts,” Steve Festool USA chief sales and marketing officer Rangoussis said in a statement. “The combination of our new 5.2 Ah high-performance battery packs — which allow users to work 25 percent longer between charges — with our innovative EC-TEC brushless motor, guarantees excellent results without the need to be attached to a power cord.”

The new products include:

TSC 55 track saw: Powered by two 18-volt, 5.2 Ah batteries, the TSC 55 can zip through more than 328 feet of sheet goods on a single charge. The system also features a flexible dual battery concept, allowing users to operate the saw with two 18-Volt battery packs for maximum power or one pack for low weight.

C15/C18 drills: The compact D-handle design not only provides an option to get into tight spaces, but also improves hand-positioning for better control. Also featuring the Festool FastFix chuck system with optional right-angle, depth-stop and eccentric chucks.

BHC 18 rotary hammer: Combined with a compact, balanced, and ergonomic C-handle design, the BHC’s light weight (5.7 lbs.) and low vibration makes for efficient and comfortable one-handed use. Further supporting the BHC 18 is a complete range of SDS bits for concrete, natural stone, mortar and formwork containing concrete, as well as the complete line of Centrotec accessories.

PDC 18/4 QuaDrive drill: Driven by a four-speed gearbox, users can drop the torque down low to hog out material, switch to high-speed hammer function with 3,800 RPMs to plow through concrete, or just go mid-range for all common drilling applications.
