Festool USA to release the new TID 18 Cordless Impact Driver on July 1
The tool – part of Festool’s new cordless lineup – delivers impeccable quality, warranty and ergonomic design.
Lebanon, Ind. – Festool USA will launch the new TID 18 Cordless Impact Driver at Festool dealer locations on July 1. The tool is part of Festool’s robust, new cordless lineup and features Festool’s innovative Li-HighPower 4.0 HPC-ASI 18 V Battery Pack platform.
The TID 18 is engineered with a standard ¼”quick-release chuck and T-Mode control that differentiates wood from metal fastening applications to prevent over-tightening. The tool has a compact, ergonomic design and, with its light-weight construction, is well suited to minimize fatigue, even in hard to reach areas. This precision-performance tool comes standard with magnetic bit storage, removable belt clip and the EC TEC brushless motor, which packs 1,593 inlb. of torque into three speed settings. The TID 18 is packaged in Festool’s legendary Systainer storage system.
Rick Bush, VP of marketing for Festool, said, “The TID 18 delivers for the woodworkers, remodelers, craftsmen and DIY hobbyists of all levels who expect Festool to offer value through precision-engineered tools primed for performance. The TID 18 is competitively priced and backed by the best warranty in the industry, and our customers will quickly come to rely on the TID 18’s power, quality and versatility to complete jobs of varying degrees of complexity.”
Festool’s complete line of cordless tools, including the TID 18 Impact Driver, is German engineered for premium quality and durability, and all carry the company’s 3-year all-inclusive warranty. The warranty covers the tool, battery and charger against wear-and-tear, and is the best warranty in the industry. Festool delivers against this “gold standard” warranty with in-house resources, meaning Festool’s trained experts manage all service and warranty requests. This “vertical integration” not only allows Festool to turn-around most customer requests in two business days, but also guarantees a quality of workmanship and trust that out-sourcing cannot match.
