Festool's commitment to durability.

Drill Torture Tests

It's practically impossible to kill a Festool cordless drill.

With all of the sophisticated technology packed into Festool power tools, let's not forget a key criteria for any power tool --- durability! Festool power tools are built to withstand your toughest demands. Don't get the impression that our tools are too delicate for the jobsite. We torture tests all of our power tools with some extreme conditions, many that you would never imagine doing to your own tool.

Sure, many power tool manufacturer's may do a standard drop test where the drill is dropped from a distance onto a hard surface. We do that too. But, we also pour metal filings into the drill and run it, dowse it in a muddy water while it's running, and run it in a dust chamber while harsh, abrasive dust is blasted into the tool just to name a few of our other tests.
