    Very cool, I might be picking one up once the other little drivers I have are wore out.

      See that the new 12 volt pocket drill is now up on the webpage - sweet. Good work Josh and ProBrand - thank you for listening to some of our gripes. Definitely is a difference being noted with the release of these tools - nice to see info ahead of time. Very much appreciated. The winds of change are good.

            Thanks to Josh and Probrand for the posting. Good information and now I'm in "waiting" mode with the local HD.

                  Been seeing it bandied here and there that this tool will be listed at $129.

                    The Milwaukee is that price or less, and the Bosch is in that price range as well. Guess it comes down to whether you wanna stay orange or not......

                      I just bought the Bosch about a month ago. I dont have much brand loyalty, so staying Orange isnt absolutely necessary. But I do love the REAL chuck on the Ridgid (but, on the flipside, it ends up more work to use a "quick" tool because of the actual chuck).

                      Wonder how much of a hit I would take if I wanted to sell the Bosch.

                        Yes, the Milwaukee one is also $129, as is the Bosch pocket driver. The Bosch little impact is $179 though.

                          I like the looks of it. To tell the truth though, in a tight quarters situation where you need a little driver the quick connect is a bonus to me. I find the lack of a spinning chuck near finished surfaces durring times when I have no wiggle room and bad angles nice. The chuck can do damage.

                            Good point, Eli. You know, it would really be nice, quite an advantage, if there was some way to select either. Like if they maybe had two versions of the tool, one with the chuck and one with the quick connect. Or, even if there was some way to include both in the package, and have the consumer choose which one to install. I don't know, sounds like a crazy idea maybe. But I see your point though - yes, sometimes the chuck can cause bad things to happen.

                              Someone mentioned to me the Metabo version of the pocket driver has a quick change AND normal chuck, you can swap them.

                              Not sure if their lith-ion version has it too (the person telling me about it has the older NiMH version).

                              EDIT: not even sure a lith-ion version exists, only see reference to the PowerMaxx Plus which uses a NiCD. BUT it does have a swappable chuck (rockler: http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?O...Select=Details)
