I was looking for a small driver so that I wouldn’t keep having to swap bits out in my drill. I wasn’t really looking for an impact driver, but then I found about the rebate Bosch is currently having. Buy an impact driver and get a PS20 (non-impact version) for free. Now it doesn’t include a battery but the PS40 does include 2.
So now I get both for the price of one. I got it for the out the door price of $142.
How does it perform? Well, I drove a #8×3” deck screw all the way into a piece of white oak without pre-drilling! For small screws it doesn’t even use the impact feature. I always drive in screws to final torque by hand so it never let it bottom out the.
It only starts impacting once the torque reaches a certain level. Just barely pull the trigger and the LED light turns on. Press a little more and it barely starts moving. Real nice variable speed control.
Some of the features:
3 LEDs illuminate work area for use in dark areas
800 in.-lbs of max torque
Lithium 10.8V Batteries
Bumpers on Side of Tool — Protect work surface and prevent slipping
Variable Speed Trigger
For the rebate you need to purchase before July 15th. Get the rebate form here.
