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.
