Festool 574695 DRC 18/4 Li-Basic 18V Cordless 4-Speed Drill



For drilling and screwdriving with large diameters, the QUADRIVE DRC 18 cordless drill delivers high power and speeds with its robust four-gear metal gearbox. Powerful screwdriving with a torque of 60 Nm in first gear and precise drilling with 3,800 rpm in fourth gear are no longer a problem. Whether working with wood or metal – the DRC 18 is extremely tough and its maintenance-free brushless EC-TEC motor ensures excellent durability.

  • Robust metal gearbox
    Withstands the enormous forces and speeds of the brushless Festool EC-TEC motor, even for long periods
  • Intelligent motor management
    The brushless EC-TEC motor is wear-free and converts the energy from the battery into optimum power with virtually no losses. The electronic motor management also guarantees maximum service life: Microprocessors monitor and control the temperature, voltage and current consumption of the motor, electronics and battery.
  • Durable and extremely light
    The Li-HighPower Compact battery guarantees full power, while weighing considerably less. To provide even more endurance, the brushless and maintenance-free EC-TEC motor only takes as much power as required by each screwing task. The 5.2 Ah battery pack is the right choice for even more power for particularly difficult drilling and screwdriving applications.
  • Can be individually adjusted
    You can perfectly adjust both the torque (in 12 stages) and the speed to your job requirement. If the preset value is exceeded, the electronics switches the device off.
  • Optimal lighting
    The LED light can be switched on, enabling precise work to be carried even in dark corners.
  • In the smallest of spaces
    The angle attachment is perfect for work around corners and reaching concealed screws at tight angles.
  • 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.
  • Extra mobile with vehicle integration
    The screwdriver for Systainer³ products can also be seamlessly integrated into bott vehicle equipment for easy transportation from the workshop to the construction site. Systainer³ products are compatible with one another and can be connected to all previous Systainer generations, mobile dust extractors and many other system accessories, such as roll boards or the mobile workshop.
