Amazing, useful tool
The latest, portable impact drivers are amazing, and this one is a versatile, impressive tool. Lightweight and compact, fits hand and is balanced. Versatile, powerful, brushless motor. Three settings enable driving smallest screw to big bolts. In fact, have to watch the power on high. Had 3/8" dia. framing bolts set in basement concrete since the 1940s. On high, twisted the first bolt in half. Zip. Dropped down to medium and easily impacted out the rest. Works fine as drill, with (more costly) driver-based drill bits. LED light is good but wish there were a second LED underneath for full coverage from any working angle. Suggest buy quality, hardened impact screwdriver and socket accessories that can handle the impact torque. Have found Makita tools and battery systems to be excellent, going back 15 years to original, puny 9.6V nicads. Currently have four LXI batteries and six LXI power tools, all through CPO. Very satisfied with the system. In fact, hafta smile at my good judgement on this one. (Doesn't happen often ;-}

Multi Speeds very useful not essential
Impact drivers have sort of revolutionized consruction over the last 20 years. The ability to drive screws without stripping the head or snapping the shaft while going into solid wood is really great. I still own Makita corded and 9.6V cordless drills from the early 90s. They're well made but they don't do what impact drivers do.

This model is an improvement over older impact drivers. The brushless motor is smoother and quieter. My workmate has an older non-brushless 1.5h model and while a great tool, this new one is more powerful, faster, and the battery lasts longer. The multi speeds are very convenient and I'm glad I got them but they're not absolutely necessary. Especially if you can press lightly and operate your variable speed driver at low rpms. (The speed change button seems like another thing to fail over time but so far so good.) The only thing about the Makita is it's a bit more expensive than comparable models but that's because Makitas are built as well as can be.

After years of suffering
Hoping this reconditioned tool holds up. If so it's a huge improvement over my current drill, especially when it comes to driving screws, nuts, bolts. I have much more control and strip less fastener heads.

The speed control is great. Love the light and the glow in the dark ring is handy for attic and crawl space work when I set the tool down.
