CXS Compact Drill Driver - 564261

For the most comprehensive information about the new CXS Compact Cordless Drill, please visit our cordless drill website.

The CXS Compact cordless drill is the latest, and by far the smallest, extension of Festool’s Li-Ion drill platform. Featuring the FastFix chuck system, the CXS can be used with the Centrotec chuck, keyless chuck, or an optional right angle attachment that allows you to access even the tightest spaces. As you would expect, the CXS features exceptional ergonomics, with a battery design that removes the bulk from the handle, ensuring maximum comfort over extended use. Weighing in just under 2 pounds with the Centrotec chuck attached, the CXS will not leave you feeling fatigued even after all day use. The CXS offers exceptional battery life and an ultra-low recharge time, fully recharging in just 30 minutes. The drill comes with two 10.8v 1.5Ah Lithium Ion batteries to keep you drilling and driving instead of waiting for a battery to recharge. The drill, charger and both batteries are covered by Festool's comprehensive 3-year warranty.

  • 3 tools in 1, FastFix enables the use of the Centrotec chuck, a keyless chuck and optional right angle attachment for gaining access to tight spaces
  • Tough inside and out, the CXS features sophisticated electronics that protect the tool and batteries from overcurrent, undervoltage, and overheating.
  • An ultra-compact design weighing in at less than 2lbs means maximum comfort during extended use.
  • Extremely long battery life and recharge time of only 30 minutes

Features & Benefits.

3-Year Warranty

3-Year Warranty

Festool offers a three year limited warranty, one of the longest in the industry. Festool will even cover all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. Festool warrants that the CXS cordless drill, charger and batteries will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of three years from the date of purchase.

FastFix Interchangeable Chucks

Quickly and easily swap between any of the three chucks for the CXS: the Centrotec chuck, keyless drill chuck and right angle chuck without any tools. FastFix turns your CXS into something more than a common, everyday compact drill. Watch the video above to see how it works.

Comfortable Ergonomics

Ergonomics are an important consideration in the design process for Festool power tools. We realize that your cordless drill is probably the tool you use the most. So, why shouldn't it be designed to be comfortable? That means a drill that has a very low weight, feels great in your hand, and can be used right or left handed. Not to mention all of the other small details that incorporate to make them a pleasure to use.

High-Intensity LED Light

You may have to wear your sunglasses when you use your CXS. The integrated LED light is extremely bright to help you see in dark places.

Onboard Bit Stowage

The onboard magnetic bit stowage keeps you from spending your time looking for misplaced driver bits or screws. It's a simple feature, but don't you wish your current drill had it?

Integrated Belt Clip

Sometimes you need to use both of your hands but don't want your drill too far out of reach. The CXS has an integrated belt clip which can be switched to either side of the drill to meet your preference.

Lithium Ion Battery Technology

Did we mention we warranty your batteries for three years! Our cordless drills represent the culmination of the best technology available today, with features unique only to Festool. . Battery cells are carefully tested and selected to find matched sets to enhance cell balancing. This technique ensures equal charge and discharge cycles, thus prolonging battery life and efficiency.

FastFix Centrotec Chuck

FastFix Centrotec Chuck

For lighter weight and a more compact form factor, use the Centrotec chuck with its full array of interchangable drill, driver bits and accessories. Using the Centrotec chuck saves approximately a half of a pound of weight when compared to a standard keyless chuck. Quickly change between bits by depressing the outer green ring. The Centrotec chuck comes standard with a magnetic bit holder that works well with standard 1/4-inch hex shank bits.

FastFix Right Angle Chuck

The right-angle chuck provides a 90° angle to the drill tranmission for tight spaces. This chuck can swivel a full 360 degrees with 16 locking positions. It can also be combined with the Centrotec or Keyless Drill chucks for additional functionality. Or, just stick a 1/4" hex shank bit right into the right angle chuck itself.

FastFix Keyless Drill Chuck

FastFix Keyless Drill Chuck

Quickly change to the keylesschuck by depressing the green ring and connecting it to the drill. The CXS-series drills include a non-ratcheting keyless chuck which accepts up to 5/16" in diameter bits.
