Festool, a manufacturer of precision-engineered power tool solutions, has added to its QUADRIVE family with the new QUADRIVE TPC 18/4 Cordless Hammer Drill.
Powerful and versatile with four gears to address nearly any application, the QUADRIVE TPC 18/4 Cordless Hammer Drill is ready for wood, metal, masonry and more. Its multi-functional, 18-volt hammer drill and the four-speed metal gearbox ensure plenty of power and high-speed capabilities — meaning this hammer drill can handle the toughest tasks.
“The TPC hammer drill will enable professional tradespeople to create outstanding work through increased productivity, versatility, durability and precision in every application,” said Rick Bush, product marketing manager, Festool. “At Festool, each new tool we bring to market forwards our goal of helping craftsman work smarter while driving efficiency in the shop or on the job site.”
- Versatility: A large number of attachments and unique Chuck System — including CENTROTEC, Right Angle, Eccentric Offset, Depth Stop, Drywall Chuck, and Socket Adapter — make the TPC one of the most adaptable hammer drill in its class. The CENTROTEC Tool Chuck is a chuck and bit holder in one; ensuring maximum versatility for drilling, countersinking, and driving. It is also half the size, weighing 80% less, than a standard chuck. The Fast Fix interface enables the TPC to be used with all of the 18V Festool attachments, increasing the applications it can be used for on-the-job.
- Improved control: The intelligent Kickback Stop Gyroscopes actively monitor drill movement and minimize the risk of the drill twisting out of users’ hands. Adding to the safety of the updated TPC are excellent handle ergonomics and short design, which ensure the TPC fits in the users’ hand for control of power.
- Gear optimization: The improved gear changing allows for seamless switching in any direction without intermediate stages, providing a fast, safe, and direct solution. Plus, gear positions are clearly marked for solid engagement. The TPC includes four gears ideal for any application.
- Increased power: The Brushless EC-TEC Motor is designed to be wear-free, meaning it has extreme resilience and endurance. The Motor Management System also adds to the TPC’s efficiency as it converts energy from the battery into optimum power with virtually no loss, featuring 40% more torque than the previous version.
