I have for a long time fancied getting the festool drills cause of the different chucks and having a shorter body length than my current hilti cordless. The only thing that has put me off is being locked into the centrotec. With the new drills offering exchangeable chucks and able to use standard hex bits. Which can easily be bought anywhere. It makes any of the other alternatives very tempting
The festool PRC and fein drills have the advantage of 4 gears and high speed of 3800+. The guy who got the festool chucks to fit the fein drill did have to do a bit of filing and modification to get them to work. The pdc and fein almost have identical front sections with very similar teeth pattern to allows angle chuck to be locked on in different positions.
Festool will never have the better hex locking stubs as it would mean the death of the centrtec. Now that other brands have started producing fastfix chucks with locking stubs for regular standard hex bits I feel it will effect sales of centrotec system. I bet they regret not sticking to standard hex bits.
As of right now, I can't get my hands on a metabo or a pdc here in the tropics of Canada. I've been waiting on the release of the pdc here for about two years. I'm ready to move on. I like the festool drills I own but can't wait to ditch centrotec and be a normal person again.

I really like my C15 for trim work, and for drilling holes the Centrotec system is VERY nice, but for general carpentry I agree that Festool really missed an opportunity to allow for use of standard Hex bits.
My interest would be to possibly hold on to my C15 for cabinet assembly and installation, but migrate to the Metabo "Quick" drill and impact driver for general carpentry....
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
