Festool CXS Compact Cordless Drill

The Festool CXS is a compact cordless drill that's both the latest and smallest lithium ion battery-powered Festool drill available. The FastFix chuck system allows quick changes, letting the CXS use a Centrotec chuck or keyless chuck for working in tight spaces.

Most drills place the battery in the handle, making them unwieldy and uncomfortable to use for extended periods. The CXS' innovative ergonomic design and light weight (under 2 lbs) makes it comfortable for all-day use. Lithium ion battery provides super long battery life and fast recharge at only 45 minutes.

More features and technology than any other cordless drill plus legendary Festool durability means the CXS is small but truly mighty, and the most versatile compact drill driver available.

Drill comes with Centrotec chuck & bit holder, FastFix 3/8 in. Keyless chuck, Charger, and two Batteries.

Battery Technology

Festool cordless drills represent the culmination of the best technology available today. Lithium Ion technology create a lighter and more powerful cordless drill. Most advanced battery technology available for portable power tools. 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.

Intelligent battery charger

Our intelligent battery chargers are programmed to optimize the charging process. The charger is able to interface with the battery and adjust charging rates dynamically. The charger uses rapid charge mode until the lithium ion battery reaches 80% capacity then slows down charge rate to protect the cells and prolong the battery life. It actually monitors each cell in the battery for optimum charging and to prolong battery life. The charger also recognizes dangerous conditions, such as cold and heat, and prevents charging in these instances.


At just under 2 lbs, the CXS ultra-compact dimensions with slim handle design take the awkwardness out of tight drilling and driving spots. The C handle design with rubberized grip maximize your power transfer through your arm to the driver.

Durability Design

Festool's MMC electronics technology kicks in before thermal and overload limits are exceeded to prevent damaging effects. The tool will simply shut off temporarily until it returns to temperatures within its parameters.

Unique electronic clutch.

Traditional mechanical drill clutches result in premature wear on the motor and transmission. Festool instead uses an electronic clutch design. That means your Festool cordless drill will last longer and you'll get consistent results every time. Not only that, but you can switch between the drilling and driving modes without losing your clutch setting.

Includes Two FastFix Chucks

Centrotec Chuck

For lighter weight and a more compact form factor, use the Centrotec chuck with its full array of interchangeable 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.

Keyless Drill Chuck

The keyless chuck ratcheting action ensures that bits do not slip or work themselves loose. Quickly change to the keyless chuck 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.


Bright LED lamp increases visibility of the bit and the workpiece for more precise results, even in low light.

Magnetic Bit Storage

Save time and nerve-wracking hassles by keeping your critical bits at easy, secure access with magnetic storage for up to 4 hex drive bits.

Reversible Belt Clip

The generously sized and handy belt clip can be easily switched for use on either side, keeping the CXS close at hand as you move between tasks.
