    Fantastic drill, great ergonomics. I have the XL set version which has the angle chuck and the depth stop chuck. You can use the hammer mode with the angle adapter chuck attached.
    The 4 speed gearbox gives you a lot of flexibility and the brushless motor gives great battery life and in theory longer tool life. The 4th speed is amazing @3800rpm, only Metabo can rival that now with their new drill recently released overseas. Its hammer drilling is awesome but very loud, wear ear protection.
    The price seems high but if you look at Makita’s premium brushless drill which is only available as a bare tool, add in 2x batteries and a charger, the Makita will cost you more. However the Makita, Dewalt, Metabo premium models have higher torque ratings so if you require that then those would be better for you.

    On the pricey side but works like a mobile mitre saw. Works on the FSK rail system which comes in 3x sizes and the traditional FS rail system too. There is a dust bag available and it catches a lot of dust which was a surprise. Hardest wood I’ve used it on is 38mm CCA treated pine which it handled fine. Festool make ripping blade and fine tooth blade for it too, trimmed a door with the fine tooth blade with zero tear out.

    Arguably the best mitre saw on the market in terms of accuracy and dust extraction. Make sure you use a 36mm hose for dust collection. Dual lasers one on each side of the blade and you can customize them yourself etc. If you use a sacrificial fence and raise the blade depth you can increase the cut thickness to 98mm from 88mm. Worth every penny. Love mine

    Very well machined drill bit, excellent quality. As others have said, need to use high speed drill. I use my Festool PDC 18/4 cordless drill @3800rpm and have perfect plugs every time.
    NB!! Read the manual that comes with the drill bit, will help anyone having issues. Now I’m just waiting for the HD version.

    Works brilliantly, no masonry dust escapes so no mess to cleanup. Vacuum port swivels left or right to keep hose out of your way, vacuum suction keeps it glued to the wall. It does shorten your drilling length slightly so keep that in mind. Designed for Festool 27mm nozzle but other vacs will fit with an adapter or reducer.
