Overview

Editor's Review: Cordless Impact Drivers

review date: July 1, 2002

This driver (and its 12v cousin) was the favorite among the intermittent users on the testing crew due to its ergonomic combination of slender handles and light weight. Its small battery makes it less than steady while standing, but it's barely noticeable when hanging from a tool belt.
