I would love to, but it would be hard to convince the better half that I need a third cordless drill. Seeing as one has an impact option on it that really drives screws nice. Nice though!!!

Yeah, I use a Makita 18-volt ion impact and it is the nuts, cordless impacts are where it’s at!

Looks really, really light. I also use same gun as Abbott. I don’t know how we all got along before these things. They are unreal.

I gave up on DeWalt drills several years ago.

I just got a Dewalt NiCad impact driver in a 4 piece set that was on sale for $99. I have to say that the impact driver is FAR superior at driving screws than using a regular cordless drill…far superior.

I’ve got the Hitachi 18 volt one and it’s is quite light also. The Lithium batterire are a lot smaller that the other style. I bought my wife a 12 volt Hitachi set that the box states that it’s 9-12 volts and it’s a nice light weight size. The impact really does a nice job.

My son-in-law was painting the house and I got up on the ladder and noticed that some of the screws on the metal roof on the garage were loose. It really brought them down nice.
