I really like my new pocket driver. Bosch has reinvented the cordless driver, and it leaves nothing to be desired.
The way it fits in your hand makes you feel like a cowboy. No kidding. It really makes it want to practice your quick-draw. Due to it’s Li Ion battery it only weighs 4.88 lbs but delivers 80 in.-lbs. of Torque with a variable speed trigger. The LED light is the icing on the cake.
I like my heavy duty DeWalt 14v cordless drill for boring holes but sometimes I go back and forth between drilling and driving screws on a project and wanted something just for driving. This fit the bill perfectly. It’s just right for projects like cabinetry where you spend a lot of time inside tight spaces or drilling above you… this light-weight driver will not wear out your arms like a full sized drill.
It’s sensitive enough for tiny brass screws on box hinges but powerful enough for driving screws into hardwoods (after pre-drilling, of course).
I found myself wanting one more just to keep in the house.
