Tool News - Festool T3 Drills


Festool USA recently announced the launch of two new lithium ion cordless drill/drivers, the T 12+3 and T 15+3. With sophisticated electronics, brushless motors and lithium ion batteries, they offer plenty of power in a light weight package.

The new brushless motors are electronically-controlled with fewer wearing parts and less friction, to make more efficient use of energy. Each drill set has five different chucks that utilize Festool’s tool-less FastFix and Centrotec interfaces for incredible flexibility and ease of use.

At just over 3 lbs, the T 12+3 packs 10.8 V and up to 1500 rpms and the T 15+3 weighs just under 3.5 lbs, with 14.4 V and up to 1500 rpms. Each drill is available as a set, which contain the TRC 3 charger, two (2) 2.6 Ah Lithium ion batteries, four (4) FastFix and Centrotec keyless chucks (quick release, standard ½ inch, right angle, and eccentric), Centrotec starter set, and the Systainer.
