Default Who else uses cordless impact drivers .

I use a little Hilti fella lots . A guy in the industrial racking field put me on to it , saying that they had tried most makes , with poor results . The Hilti's gave about 2 years service . These fellas aren't gentle with tools . I figure , two years for them would be the equivalent of ten-fifteen years for most opher users .

Hard to top Hilti products. I have 2 small Mikita's that came as a set. One is an impact. I use it all the time in my shop even when I predrill the holes.

I use a Panasonic impact. Brushless motor (I think Panasonic were the first to bring them out) hasn't missed a beat, and the batteries are second to none

Have you guys seen this new video? It was posted "over there". Thanks to Poto for trying to showing me how to embed the video. I couldn't make it work though.

I've got a little Bosch 12 volt that I have been using for several months and am very happy with it. I have been driving screws, no big lag screws yet.

It has built in multiple LED lights that come on with a slight pull of the trigger and also three LED battery condition lights that show the state of the charge left. It is small and light and great for decking and other projects.

I'll have to look into it, but I don't think our forum software is compatible with Vimeo. Plus, I don't think Vimeo allows linking without logging in.

And by the way, it's okay to say "the FOG" here.

I saw the video thru firefox. What was interesting was the Surfix video in
the box on the right. What is that all about?
