Designed for performance in a compact package, it isn’t a stretch to call the Festool CSX Drill ($275) the BMW of drills — hailing from the 80 year old German power tool company. The single, 2 lb driver functions as both a drill or driver and its versatile form factor means taking on cumbersome spaces is a cinch. Using three FastFix Intechangeable Chucks, the CSX instantly transforms from a versatile drill/driver to keyless drill or combine either with the 90° angle chuck for those ultra-tight nooks and crannies. More features include an onboard magnetic bit storage, integrated belt clip, 10.8 volt lithium ion battery technology, a high-intensity LED light, and not unlike an actual BMW, a comprehensive three year warranty that covers everything from repair shipping costs to the battery. Just don’t call it a yuppie’s drill.
