I just bought the 18V li-ion driver (R842301) after I used my dad's 14.4v mastercraft to sink some deck screws. His MC was faster then my Ridgid 18V li-ion drill (R86006), so I bought a Ridgid impact driver. Driving 3" deck screws into double 2x4 (not predrilled), the drill is way faster - one inch ahead of the impact. (Although there is much less slip) I really don't think it is coming anywhere close to the spec'ed 2400 rpm. Has anyone else experienced this or can they verify this. I just can't see this driver getting smoked by a cheap retail knock off. Bought it because it was on sale and getting ready to build a house in May.
No announcement yet.
Impact Driver Too Slow?
