One’s the “T” handle type drill and the other isn’t, depends on which one you like better.

The Operational differences is subjective, I have one similar to the 564616 and it’s worth it but
I’ve never used the T handle kind to appreciate an operational difference

waho6o9, thanks for the response. I have never had a “C’ handle before. I appreciate your “worth it” comment. I am considering the “C” handle seriously. I may also consider the smaller drill.

Does anyone have experience with the “C” handle versus the “T” handle?

I have the CSX in the 10.8v range and love it. It is all about the ergonomics and if you have a Festool dealer close I highly recommend you go and get each drill in your hands it will likely be clear in just a few seconds which you prefer but without having both of them in your hands you will never know which you actually prefer. I like the C handle drills because you can slide you palm up and get the pressure directly in line with the bit vs offset with a standard drill.

As always it is nice to have Festools 30 day return policy but I think it is important to get the drills (and the jigsaws) both in your hands.

Have your say...
