As with all Festool tools every aspect has been designed to ensure the user is in full control. The Festool 10.8V battery and motor combination gives effortless working and high performance as well as being well balanced and compact, you will find it suitable for a host of jobs. Protected for long service life with temperature control for the electronics and battery and current limited to protect the battery and motor. The FastFix elbow allows you to get into very tight spaces, it simply clicks onto the drill in place of the chuck and you can insert a 1/4" fitting directly into it for the very tight areas or you can add a chuck to it. The Centrotec chuck is used with Festool system accessories allowing you to change from drilling to screwdriving etc very quickly.

OutstandingThis drill replaced my previous two Makita one's ( a drill driver and an angle driver). I was a little bit skeptical that the 10.8 battery wouldn't perform as well. How wrong I was! This drill is far superior to the Makita in all ways. The batteries last for ages and when one goes flat it takes about 15-20 minutes to re-charge, so you are not without use. The angle chuck is fantastic as it can rotate around the axis of the drill body to the best configuration needed. It get's into much smaller and tighter areas than the Makita. It is very light, and the built in LED light is very handy and comes on with the initial squeeze of the operating trigger before the chuck starts rotating, so helping when working in a dark kitchen cupboard for instance. All this, plus a quick change chuck and a Systainer to keep it all together. As a previous reviewer stated - 'You get what you pay for'.

FabulousNever was the saying that you get what you pay for more true than with this drill/driver. The speed control is vastly superior to any other driver I have used over the years, making accuracy especially when drilling small holes so much easier than my other drills. Despite its relatively small 10.8 volts it offers a great amount of torque and the batteries last for ages. The way in which the angled chuck attaches and allows it to be used in any direction is a real advantage over my old Makita angled driver.

An Excellent bit ot kit. I wish that i had bought it sooner!I had been thinking about buying one of these for a while but circumstances forced my hand. I was part way through a job that required many screws to be fitted into very hard timber. Pre driling pilots was essential due to the nature of the timber. With this machine and festool bit, it walked the rest of the job in much much quicker time, with no need to pre drill. It probably saved almost half a day. To say I was surprised is an understatement. It is well balanced in the hand, can access difficult areas and is a pleasure to use. What more do you want? My only slight issue is that the chuck will only take drills up to 8mm.

BrilliantI wanted a replacement driver as the batteries on my old 12v Dewalt died. Picked up the CSX in my local shop and just thought "Wow". Had to buy it. The way you instinctively hold it with your trigger finger pointing down the the machine letting your index finger control the trigger instead. It really does feel like an extension of your arm. It took me a long time to stop just getting it out of the case to hold it. There is so much fine control which is perfect for my usual tasks.. Best bit though is seeing the look on my fitters face when I'm on site driving direct fix screws into masonry besides their 18v impacts. It will however tell you when you're being silly by Germanicly stopping and blinking its light at you. It knows best. It's the best.

A superb tool - a true investment.I make camping huts and garden studios and have bought the Festool CXS Drill driver set. Without doubt, this is a very fine bit of kit and an excellent investment for anyone serious about quality and longevity. It does everything it should do, perfectly. its power, torque, battery life and rapid recharge are all excellent – I use this all day and every day. The 2 chucks and the angled drive are precise, dead simple to use and fast to interchange. The high quality finish and superb handling in terms of balance, switch action and general feel make it a real pleasure to use. The price may look high but what you are buying into easily justifies the investment - you will not regret buying a Festool CSX outfit! Sounds too good to be true? - try it and you'll see what I mean!
