Festool TXS 18 cordless drill/driver: light, compact and surprisingly powerful

The TXS 18 is an asset for professionals who usually work with drills/drivers for extended periods. The combination of its compact construction, low weight, full 18V power and ergonomic design ensures unparalleled user comfort.

Short and sweet

With a length of 14 cm and a height of 22.4 cm (including a 3.0 Ah battery), the Festool TXS 18 cordless drill/driver is extremely compact. However, the brushless EC-TEC motor and powerful 18V battery give this seemingly small lightweight machine impressive performance, even when working with Forstner drills up to 35 mm and screws up to 6×240 mm in softer wood.

Whoever is small must be smart

The small dimensions of the TXS 18 do not mean that you have to settle for less functionality. On the contrary, this compact machine excels in smart details and options. It comes complete with a bit storage box, LED light control, belt clip, a powerful 18V battery and lid compartment systainer (depending on variant). And attachments for every application make it particularly flexible in use. All 18 V Festool screwdriver attachments are compatible through a simple, quick tool change via the CENTROTEC system and the FastFix connection.

The integrated LED light also deserves a mention. Permanent lighting and post-lighting can be controlled via the setting wheel. And you can even personalize the brightness and duration of the after-lighting via the Work app.
