C18
« on: February 07, 2014, 11:04 AM »
Just wondering. I love all festool cordless drills but the C models fits me better. Why does festool make C and T models of the 12 and 15 models but not the 18? I've got the C15 but could use the extra power of the 18, but the bitholder and how it feels in the hand is better on the C15. A C18 Would be perfect!  [blink]

Sorry, but I do not have an answer for why Germany has elected not to produce an 18v version of the C-drill. As far as I know, there are currently no plans to introduce one.

Okey. And another question that has nothing to do with it. Why do you in the US have TS55REQ? Why don't you get the TS55REBQ like here in europe?

I give up, why?  [tongue]

I suspect it has something to do with our power requirements here and how the brake works. The "B" is for brake for those who don't know.

Just wondering. A nice feature that you too should have. Noticed in some youtube videos that the saws stopped a little slower than I'm used to :)

Thanks for the confirmation, Dave. I figured it was related to the power requirements.

So it's impossible to have brake on a 110v saw?

I just purchased the T-18 and it's way lighter than my old DeWalt 14.4 drill and it fits my hand nicely and is a pleasure to use.  Try it you might just come to like it [wink]

Don't know why it doesn't have a brake but I have a 110v ts55r and I don't see the need for a brake as the blade retracts back out of the way instantly. Just my opinion.
