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.

As you can see, Festool power tools aren't fragile. We realize that you rely on your power tools and can't afford to have a tool fail during a job. Purchase with the confidence of knowing that Festool has already done more extreme things to its power tools than you will ever do.

Drill Torture Tests



What's the easy way to kill a power tool?

Answer: Push it beyond its capabilities resulting in a catastrophic failure. Festool cordless drills have integrated thermal and overload protection to prevent this from happening. These drills are smart enough to prevent themselves from being damaged. The motor and other components of the cordless drill are susceptible to failure if pushed beyond their limits. But, Festool's MMC electronics technology kicks in before those limits are exceeded to prevent damaging effects. The tool will simply shut off temporarily until it returns to temperatures within its parameters.
