Overview

Editor's Review: Yes, You Need a Cordless Impact Driver

review date: July 1, 2008

Most all trigger-activated lights are useful, but the light on this Makita, which can be found on other Makita drivers as well, really shines. Located high on the tool, this bright LED stays on for several seconds after the trigger is released, providing illumination in dark spaces even after driving tasks are complete.
