The real thing!
This is bar none the best cordless driver I have ever owned. The impact function gives it more than enough power. The problem with that much power is you have to learn to control it. You need to learn to vary your hand pressure as well as, at the same time, the amount of time you leave the power on and how much or far you squeeze on the trigger. SO a little bit of a learning curve is required so as not to bust a screw head or over drive the screw and strip out the material your working with. Thats why I didn't give this driver a full 5 star rating. If it had an adjustable clutch on it, then, in my experience this driver would be as good as it gets for a cordless driver.
1 great point that was left out of all of the manuals I saw is the simple fact that the LED light comes on BEFORE you squeeze the trigger enough to actually start turning the driver. Why is this good? Well, you can see what your placing the bit into BEFORE the driver starts to turn, unlike on cheaper models, that turn at full speed and the LED comes on once the trigger is fully depressed! A huge advantage! Heck, once I even used it as a flashlight to go out in the garage one night! No problem. Lots of power, smoother than smooth variable speed control and the grip is very nice as well. Add a clutch BOSCH and it would be the best of the best.

Lots of power for a small tool
Great tool, have used this tool for about 6 months and it has performed perfectly. One of the most used tools I have, it's light weight and gets into hard to reach spots. Will snap off screws in hardwood if you are not careful. Don't put off buying thsi tool, you won't regret having it.

Great tool to have plenty of torque
Great for removing screws and light weight. Great battery life and quick charging time. I use it for accessing panels on helicopters. Sometimes most of a 10 hour day, perfect for installing screws especially the light feature in the dimly lit areas, I would buy again.

This is a great tool for the money and it delivers with plenty of power. The only complaint I have is that it was really greasy out of the box, being a refurb doesn't mean it shouldn't be clean when sold again. Not a deal breaker though.

I've used this on several around the house projects and it works as good as could be expected.
Noisy? of course it, is it's an impact driver people, get over it. Don't use it when the baby is sleeping. know what you are purchasing.
not quite as fast as my 18V dewalt drill driver but TONS lighter, way smaller and I don't have to worry about stripping screws out especially when on a ladder with no leverage to push hard without pushing yourself off the wall.
only didn't give 5 stars because it doesn't have a belt hook.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
