Selected User Reviews For Festool 564534 Li 2.6 Ah CXS Compact Drill
The drill is good, it is small and light, but it is not powerful enough for its size (compared to my other 12v compact drills). In the quick connect chuck, you may only use Centrotec bits of 1/4 inch diameter. Neither hex shank nor hex plug will Centrotec bits are not cheap (they cost a lot of money). The battery life is significantly lower than the life of other drills I am used to. As I recall, the picture I saw when I bought the drill depicted an attachment for a right angle. In the ad it is stated "to gain access to tight spaces, a right angle attachment is used". A right angle adapter wasn't included, and when I contacted the seller about it, they informed me that it only specifies that it enables the use of the right angle attachment when you read the add. Last but not least is the price. For the price, you can get most competitor drill/driver combo packages and still have enough left over to buy many.
I have never had any problems with the battery lasting forever as long as you do not install 2"+ screws. Here are a few things I would change I found the centrotec chuck to be a little more wobbly than the centrotec chucks on other larger drills that I have used, but I didn't find this to be an issue for my purposes. In addition, if I could change one thing, the LED on the drill goes on when you press the trigger about 1/4 of the way, and the drill starts spinning when you press more than that. The drill would be nice if there were a little bit more play before it started However, I still give it a 5 star rating because I use it all of the time, I like the bit holder on the front, it's weight, and how powerful it is. Previously, I had purchased a $20 electric screwdriver and thought that would suffice, but that tool was hard to use and this one is much more convenient.
Compared to other drills in my collection, this one is the most versatile. It is lightweight and comfortable to work with the entire day as well as the batteries that last for incredibly long periods of time. This is not a large impact driver or a large 20v driver, but with this we're getting around the same low end torque as a large 20v. Like most Festool accessories, Centrotec Bits are unreasonable in price. If you find that scary, watch an instructional YouTube video about filing Milwaukee Bits to work. However, besides that, it is simply remarkable.
It is extremely light Quality and value at a good price.
An excellent variable speed controller that is lightweight and powerful. A compact drill I have owned that is my favorite.
It came with only ONE battery right out of the box. The description says it comes with two batteries! It is over a month since it arrived! I need it as soon as possible!.
This is a great.
