Festo CDD 12 FX
« on: July 28, 2019, 09:58 AM »
Hey guys,

I need a chuck for my drill, its 12 year old but it's my baby.

Looking for a BF-FX 13/490698 chuck but obviously not easy to find. Can I use a chuck from a C12?

Decatur, GA

Probably. Does the old chuck attach to the same kind of “fast fix” shaft on the drill? If so, you can use the newer chuck.

What are you doing for batteries?

All current and past FastFix chucks will fit your CDD 12 FX drill, all still the same standard. The new ratcheting chuck is even a lot better than the old one.

Chinese batteries,  dont last very long. Good German packs are too expensive at $125+ if I can find them. I recently bought everything I need to convert to 12V Dewalt. I'll soon see how it works on lithium.

*Thanks for the help guys
