The benefits of cordless tools 25 March 2022

Built to last thanks to the brushless EC-TEC motors, Festool states its two new cordless drills, QUADRIVE TPC and TDC 18/4, are perfectly equipped to take on any application.

Featuring four speeds, these new tools exhibit more torque and speed under load – making them suitable for a variety of applications. The new EC-TEC motors also ensure the tools are extremely powerful and brushless, giving maximum performance.

“Tradespeople can achieve the same or even better result with cordless tools as they did with corded ones,” explains Festool UK Ltd. “There are many requirements when it comes to developing new battery packs including safety, quality, durability, power and of course runtime.”

“This combination of lithium-ion batteries, together with the brushless EC-TEC motor, delivers a longer service life and a more efficient use of each battery charge within each tool. This enables a significantly more compact and weight reduced design, which makes for less tiresome work,” adds Festool.

The QUADRIVE drills are also available with the unique KickbackStop feature, which has been developed for improved safety. Many tradespeople will experience the discomfort that comes with a tool jamming and suddenly twisting in their hand. The KickbackStop feature developed exclusively by Festool minimises the risk of this happening.
