All my cordless electric tools have been swapped for Mil's.

Hard to find anybody who has any real negatives.

  • In my short time in the union and working on commercial electrical jobs, I have never needed an impact driver and the battery drills were always provided by the employer.
  • The batteries are going as strong now as when they were new. · actions · 2013-Mar-6 7:54 am · (locked) cybersagajoin:2011-12-19Odessa, ON5.0 0.5·

  • Anyhow - maybe a bigger impact driver would be better.
  • Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?
  • I've had it "stall" on me several times. browse this site For 18V, I'd choose the Makita BTD144. 3 max speed settings set it apart from many others. The wife and I installed 210' of 6' wood fence last year. I did do a search in this forum and found alot of info, but no one brand stood out.

Get More Info He didn't understand that the clacking sound was a hammer and not a clutch, and twisted the head right off the screw. For driving screws, there isn't a better power tool on the market. I only have experience on makita.

    And for install i would go with 18v I don't have personal experience with it but i hear good things about the 12v bosh lineup for service work. You can get 18v power out of a 12v size gun and is light as hell. Here's a start: . useful reference The chemistry just doesn't work that well around freezing.

    I've only used it a few times so far, but it seems great. Today I used it to remove some old rusted lug nuts that had almost fused to the studs with with rust. I also have an 18v Dewalt impact wrench (like mechanics use for lug nuts), that has been invaluable in some instances.

    What do you need, a 12V or 18V?

It turns between 80 and 200 screws a day without exaggerating.

    Love my Makita XLT. I just couldn't get over the price jump - almost doubling is a big step. · actions · 2013-Mar-6 10:33 am · [email protected]

    Is there a reason that I see all the DIY show guys using impact drivers to drive screws? I have seen some demonstrations how easily an impact driver can drive big screws to frames, but my works are mostly furniture and I use only tiny screws. There are no numbers on the impact gun to show model number.. I have a few 12v set tools but they might get retired to home use only.

    This was for 2-inch screws, but it had hard time screwing even 1-inch screws; it gives good several seconds of loud impacts to drive them. My Makita compact lithium ion, it will run a 4" 3/8 lag in to PT like butter, and it weighs less than a full beer. I've never owned one before, but heard so many good things about it. It makes anything with a screw or hex head easier to take out or put in.. __________________ Welcome to ET..

    Dan February 1, 2013 at 10:45 pm #12290 carter5150Pro I'm not sure I would put Porter Cable in the same category as Black and Decker. for running screws and such I use my big Milwaukee driver/hammer drill in cordless. I've even changed a roadside flat with it and the 1/2" sq adapter. But I can't justify the price, for the type of work I'm doing these days.

    I also recently picked up the Dewalt 12V max and have been very impressed. I find it's the perfect tool for driving long screws doing cabinet installs. I would say that I am a fan... 02-28-2011, 08:06 AM #15 doubleoh7 Registered Member Join Date: Dec 2009 Location: Southern Illinois Posts: 3,026 Rewards Points: 2,000 Quote: Thank you vpd66 View Public Profile Send a private message to vpd66 Find More Posts by vpd66 07-22-2011, 08:37 AM #2 RKA Senior Member Join Date: Jun 2010
