The compact tool with impressive rotary power.

QUADRIVE. With four-speed metal gearbox. For transmitting extreme power and speeds: In this way, working with screws is both powerful and effortless with 60 Nm torque in first gear. And precise drilling is almost child's play with 3800 rpm in fourth gear. No matter whether you are working with wood or metal – the QUADRIVE series stands for high endurance and is tough enough for the job. And a first-class performance is guaranteed with the FastFix interface for quickly changing to a CENTROTEC tool chuck, keyless chuck, angle chuck or socket spanner adapter without the need for tools. An impressive drive. For power and precision. In every situation.

  • Brushless EC-TEC motor for maximum service life and efficiency
  • 4-speed gearbox capable of 3800 rpm for rapid, clean drilling results
  • Universal solution for fastening operations that require high torque and for drilling large diameter holes
  • Individually selectable LED lighting and battery status display
  • Lithium ion battery for maximum power density at minimum weight
  • EC-TEC motor combined with high-quality lithium-ion battery technology for up to 100% greater fastening capacity

Product highlights

  • Achieve ideal results more quickly:

    Fast, powerful screwdriving and drilling thanks to a four-speed transmission, brushless EC-TEC motor and lithium-ion battery.

  • Convenient and safe:

    Quick conversion without the need for tools with the FastFix interface for drilling, screwdriving, angular drilling and angular screwdriving.

  • Systems get it done:

    One for all – the 5.2 Ah lithium-ion battery packs in the DRC 18 can be used in all cordless devices in the same class. And vice versa.

Product details

  • Powerful results from working with screws. Precise drilling:.

    Four gears for every working situation – from powerful screwdriving in first gear to drilling at 3800 rpm in fourth gear.

  • 60 Nm in first gear.

    The QUADRIVE can insert even 10 x 300 mm screws effortlessly.

  • Ergonomic grips.

    With a second hand on the tool or an additional handle.

  • In the smallest of spaces.

    The optional angle attachment is perfect for work around corners and reaching concealed screws at tight angles.

  • Make a show of power, not amp-hours.

    The new Festool Li-ion 5.2 Ah battery pack with AIRSTREAM. The new AIRSTREAM technology guarantees faster re-use of battery packs and thus guarantees interruption-free work – even for energy-intensive applications such as sawing. This is because the new battery packs have an integrated cooling duct, thanks to which the cooling time and, as a result, the entire charging process can be reduced by up to 65% in combination with the new SCA 8 rapid charger. Furthermore, they are extremely robust with an integrated rubber frame to protect the workpiece and the battery pack and, thanks to the charge indicator, you can always clearly see how much charge is left in the battery.

  • Sheds light on the dark. The light.

    Ideal lighting with individually adjustable LEDs helps you work effectively and safely, even the darkest of corners.

  • EC-TEC.

    Brushless EC-TEC motor with integrated motor management for a long service life and maximum performance, marked by the tremendous impact energy of the QUADRIVE. Combined with the high-quality 18 V 5.2 Ah Li-ion AIRSTREAM battery packs, EC-TEC not only achieves maximum performance, but also maximum endurance.

  • Variety with just one click.

    Rapid change of attachments thanks to the FastFix interface without the need for any tools.

  • Without interruption. The charge indicator.

    The integrated LED display can be used to call up the remaining energy at any time.

  • Practically indestructible – metal gears.

    Plastic is not robust enough for the QUADRIVE. Only metal can withstand the enormous forces and speeds of the Festool EC-TEC motor for long periods.

  • Precise and non-tiring work. The electronic torque limiter.

    In 12 stages, you can perfectly adjust the torque to your job requirement. If the preset value is exceeded, the electronics switches the device off.

  • 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.

  • Ideal for tight spaces.

    As with all cordless drills from Festool, the bits can also be inserted in the direct bit holder of the spindle on the QUADRIVE DRC 18/4.

  • 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.

  • The new TCL 6 and SCA 8 rapid chargers with AIRSTREAM technology.

    The new TCL 6 and SCA 8 rapid chargers with charge indicator charge quickly and preserve the battery. In addition to their compact design, the chargers are also impressive due to their practical cord holder and simple wall mounting option. They are also extremely robust thanks to the fully encapsulated electronics. The SCA 8 rapid charger (which is included in the scope of delivery for the Plus SCA and Set versions) also features AIRSTREAM technology, which uses targeted cooling of the battery pack to reduce the charging process by up to 65%. An LED indicator on the device informs you of the remaining charge time in minutes and of the charging status.
