    My Dewalt 18v impact driver will drive 3" screws without effort. It also will drive 3/8 x4" lag screws with ease. Nice piece of equipment.

      i have had a Dewalt for a very long time but now the impact is not as hard as it was when new and im not going to get it fixed because it will cost almost as much as a new one . i may stay with Dewalt

        read my past posts, i am no fan of dewalt. many people have had much luck with them but i am not one of them.

        i am leaning towards either ridgid or hitachi

          I can't speak to the current Ridgid Impacts but my 14.4V one is awesome.

              I've used this one for years. One of the best power to weight ratios if I recall right. No complaints at all. Shouldn't change much to this design in my opinion.

              H7345 14.4V Impact Driver Kit w/ LED Light

              Haven't used the new version.

              Good luck.

                lol, i'm starting to wonder if anyone opened the link i posted??? and J.C. i am looked at the makita but to me it was just to pricey with ni cads. i won't be using it in the trades so i am looking at the $120 and down range. i have even concidered ryobi.

                  OSC, I saw it and thats why I pointed out how great my RIDGID is.

                  I don't want to get into a debate about pricing but there are places where you can still buy the batteries. Here are a few; 14.4V RIDGID batteries or you could just have your worn out ones rebuilt.

                    Three in same price range.

                    Amazon.com: RIDGID Factory-Reconditioned 18 Volt Cordless Fuego Impact Driver ZRR86030: Power & Hand Tools

                    Amazon.com: Factory-Reconditioned Bosch 23612-RT Impactor 12-Volt Ni-Cad Cordless Impact Driver: Power & Hand Tools

                    Amazon.com: Hitachi WH12DAF2 12-Volt Ni-Cad Cordless Impact Driver: Power & Hand Tools

                    I like the Bosch personally. Reconditioned and refurbished doesn't scare me.

                      I kick myself now for not signing up for the LLSA, even since I have learned that lesson I still have not signed up for that even with the new stuff I bought last christmas. The only saving grace is I can go back to HD and return it, repurchase the same exact kit I just returned, giving me a new receipt.
