    Functions

    The perfect shape.

    18-volt power on top form. The unique C-design with optimum centre of gravity lies perfectly counterbalanced in the hand. The brushless EC-TEC motor technology guarantees top performance. The combination of lithium-ion battery packs and brushless EC-TEC motor makes the C 18 light, powerful and durable. The CENTROTEC quick-change system and the FastFix adapters ensure even faster work processes, while the fully electronic torque adjustment with memory switch function guarantees reproducible screwing.

    • Brushless EC-TEC motor with integrated motor management for long service life and the highest output
    • Fully electronic torque setting and switch-off for precise screwdriving
    • FastFix interface for all FastFix attachments and CENTROTEC rapid tool-change system
    • Switchover from screwdriving to drilling without changing the set torque
    • Impressive ergonomics: compact, lightweight and perfectly balanced
    • High-quality lithium-ion battery technology for the longest sustained usage
    • Highest flexibility and economy: Battery packs in same voltage class can be used

    Product highlights

    • Achieve ideal results more quickly:

      Brushless EC-TEC motor with intelligent motor management that provides the optimum power reserves for each individual screwing process.

    • Convenient and safe:

      Precise screwdriving, fast changeover to drilling thanks to electronic torque shut-off with memory switch function.

    • Systems get it done:

      One for all – the 5.2 Ah lithium-ion battery packs in the C 18 can be used in all cordless devices in the same class. And vice versa.

    Product details

    C 18 Li 3,1-Compact
    • Power meets intelligence

      Festool has combined EC-TEC motor technology with intelligent motor management and thereby developed it further. The brushless EC-TEC motor is wear-free and converts the energy from the battery into power with virtually no loss. This means that the C 18 offers an extremely high degree of efficiency in its performance class. The electronic motor management also guarantees a longer service life: Microprocessors monitor and control the temperature, voltage and current consumption of the motor, electronics and battery.

    • Precise work

      With the handle positioned on the drilling and screwing axis, the handy and perfectly balanced C-design enables it to be positioned extremely accurately.

    • Compact and effective

      The torque adjustment and cut-out is integrated in the patented compact gear mechanism, saving space and achieving maximum transfer of force.

    • Ideal for tight spaces

      As with all cordless drills from Festool, the bits can also be inserted in the direct bit holder of the spindle on the C 18.

    • Six bits always to hand

      The practical bit holder provides space for up to six bits – magnetically secured against falling out.

    • In the smallest of spaces

      The angle attachment is perfect for work around corners and reaching concealed screws at tight angles.

    • Living on the edge

      Every screw can be reached with the eccentric adapter.

    • CENTROTEC quick-change system

      Fast change between drilling, countersinking and screwdriving: The CENTROTEC quick-change system is a chuck and bit holder in one and, at the same time, 50% smaller and 80% lighter than a standard drill chuck. The hexagonal tools are centred using balls – for optimised power transmission and ten times higher true running.

    • Chuck for standard tools

      The chuck with a standard width of up to 13 mm also enables the use of all standard bits and drill bits. Tool-free mounting via the FastFix interface.

    • Optimum power performance

      Fully electronic torque adjustment and shut-off for optimum power development in all situations. The torque setting for screwdriving is retained, even when drilling takes place at maximum torque.

    • Optimal lighting

      The integrated LED light permits precise work even in dark corners.

    • Make a show of power, not amp-hours

      The new Festool Li-ion 5.2 Ah battery pack with AIRSTREAM. The new AIRSTREAM technology guarantees faster re-use of battery packs and thus guarantees interruption-free work – even for energy-intensive applications such as sawing. This is because the new battery packs have an integrated cooling duct, thanks to which the cooling time and, as a result, the entire charging process can be reduced by up to 65% in combination with the new SCA 8 rapid charger. Furthermore, they are extremely robust with an integrated rubber frame to protect the workpiece and the battery pack and, thanks to the charge indicator, you can always clearly see how much charge is left in the battery.

    • The new TCL 6 and SCA 8 rapid chargers with AIRSTREAM technology

      The new TCL 6 and SCA 8 rapid chargers with charge indicator charge quickly and preserve the battery. In addition to their compact design, the chargers are also impressive due to their practical cord holder and simple wall mounting option. They are also extremely robust thanks to the fully encapsulated electronics. The SCA 8 rapid charger (which is included in the scope of delivery for the Plus SCA and Set versions) also features AIRSTREAM technology, which uses targeted cooling of the battery pack to reduce the charging process by up to 65%. An LED indicator on the device informs you of the remaining charge time in minutes and of the charging status.
