    Re: New Makita Compact Impact Driver

    I have the xlt202 (impact and hammerdrill) and the compact drill and love them both.I use my drill every day as a cabinet installer

    I have used a lot of drills and have the best luck with guys so far

      Ahh, so you bought the Panasonic, does it meet your expectations?
      Wondering.

        Yes. Very nice little impact driver and drill. I am finding the variable impact force indispensable. I would never want to have to go back to regular impact again.

        For example, I put together a plastic hulled trailer with it. Used the low impact force to drive the screws that clamped the plastic parts.

        What I like.

        Low weight
        Small size
        Ample power
        Battery runs forever
        Tool light
        Belt clip
        Fast acting brake
        Solid, easy to use chuck

        What could be improved.

        Separate hard cases for drill and impact is not convenient. Wish they would have included a larger case to hold both.

        No tool storage onboard. It would be nice to at least have a philips and flathead driver onboard.

        Could be a half pound lighter. Maybe an optional smaller battery?
