Festool recently introduced a new compact cordless drill recently that has some noteworthy features. The drill comes available in two kit configurations: the TXS Plus and the TXS Set. Both drill kits are equipped with standard features such as LED task light, fuel gauge, two batteries (10.8 V, 2.6 Ah), charger, a 3/8” keyless chuck and Centrotec chuck, and carrying case.
What’s notable here, though, is the size and versatility of the tool. The drill weighs less than 2 lbs. (1.98 lbs to be exact), and delivers a reported 88.5 in. lbs. of max torque in wood. . The TXS Set comes with Festool’s Plastic FastFix Right Angle Chuck, which instantly turns the drill/driver into a right angle drill/driver
The LED illuminates when the tool is in use, and a fuel gauge indicates the battery level when you take your finger off of the trigger.
The TXS Plus, which does not include the Right Angle Chuck, retails for $235
The TXS Set, which includes the Right Angle Chuck, retails for $285
Both kits are available as of December 1, 2015
