Almost the perfect go to tool
on November 28, 2011
I'd hoped this tool would come out in an 18V version, but I could wait no more. I naturally assumed that more volts meant more power, but that is not the case I pleasantly found out. I bought this tool to dismantle a very large and very expensive custom kitchen. I'd hoped it would be reliable enough to go all day for 3 days of unscrewing. It did, and it asked for more. The tiny batteries lasted a long time and since it came with two of them, I was never waiting around. I love the articulating head, it fit in very tight spots and was easy to maneuver to get to the screw head. My friends 18V driver could not do a lot of the work due to its big size. The locking head is easy to use to change bits easily. I do wish I had two of these so I wouldn't have to change bits, it gets a little annoying when working with 3 different screw head types. However, this is not the tools fault.
My only complaint is that every once and awhile I'd squeeze the trigger and nothing would happen, then I'd squeeze it again and it was fine. This happened infrequently, but still happened nonetheless. I also think the carrying bag could've been a bit bigger, I can't put the driver in without taking the battery out. I'd also like to store some bits and stuff in there, but I can't ask for everything.
All in all, its an amazing little tool. I'm glad I opted for this instead of the full size drill/driver combo I was looking at getting.
