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.

More Power, More Battery Life, Longer Service Life: The Story of Brushless Motors

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 | Reader Comments | Cordless Drills

Bringing The Power.

All the versatility of the T+3 cordless drill is combined with a robust design that features a long-lasting, energy efficient brushless motor, compact transmission, and electronic health monitoring. Brushless motors offer significant advantages over motors with brushes, including higher efficiency and reliability, reduced noise, and longer service life to name a few. This helps the T+3 cordless drill outperform other drills that would otherwise be in the same class. Nearly all of Festool's power tools feature intelligent electronic monitoring and feedback which makes the tool smarter. In the case of the T+3, this technology protects the motor from overload, provides an electronic (rather than mechanical) clutch feature, and an intelligent drill mode with an electronic clutch override, as well as other innovative features.
