Are our Tools Really as Tough as We Claim?

Drill Torture Tests

Yes, it really is practically impossible to kill a Festool cordless drill.

We talk about how our tools are designed for the toughest conditions. We've shown photos and videos of the torture tests that we perform to make sure that there's virtually nothing you can do to destroy your Festool power tool. Well, even with all of our evidence there are sometimes skeptics out there and we found a video from one of them!

This anonymous YouTuber posted a video a couple of weeks ago of him putting a Festool T15 cordless drill through some fairly rough tests. He dowses his drill in drywall dust, water, sand, mixes and dunks it in drywall compound, and plows through a 6x6 with an auger bit. Let's pause for a moment to say that we don't encourage you to do this to your own drill as it could result in voiding the warranty.

Did it survive? Watch for yourself and see...
