          Oops..

          Forgot to mention in my last post, the url has a video of this thing. Really puts its size in perspective.

            The video shows just how useless the built in light is. LOL

              i think the light works better if it was darker or if you had sunglasses on

                papadan,
                all those buit-in lights are pretty much useless. Besides, I tend to provide plenty of my own light.

                  The light is not always useless. I wish they had those on the company sds hammer drill. Starting work at 6:30 A.M. even with a light nearby once you get above ductwork you really can't see much. If Ridgid had those little lights a few of my coworkers would be taking their drill down to the parts trailer just to see better . But that is what a flash light is for... I have had to work in dim light enough times I'd appreciate having the light. When you are working in a bathroom with no windows putting in lights you have no free hands and sometimes when it's hot a headlamp will only slip off and bother you.

                      My Home Depot got these in today and i've set up the display model and played around with it a bit. So far it looks like a great tool. Very lightweight...i can see why you could forget it's on your tool belt. The power was great compared to it's size and it really is tiny. It's a dwarf compared to any traditional 12v drill.
                      It also comes with 2 batteries and a decent bag to store it all. I forgot to write down the SKU number so you could check to see if your local home depot got thiers in yet but the price is $129. As i've heard before some Home Depots are really slow on the ball of getting out new products i'm sure some won't get these out on the sales floor for a but but i'm sure they're there.

                      Well if you're looking for one and don't want to wait for the shipping from amazon check your local HD

                        Lowe's has had them for awhile already, too.
                        $129.00 also for the PS20-2 (the pistol grip one).
                        Bosch is upgrading their website now and there are no photos there.

                        Now, if they'll just come out with a compact light accessory for them, those "massive" 12volt and larger systems can stay in the truck!

                          I want one (or two). I've got an 18v and a 12v and the 12v is the go-to tool most of the time. Shaving another couple of pounds would be good for the home team I'm thinking.

                            Truer words were never spoken!

                            At present I'm having a bout with tennis elbow (I don't play tennis) due to repetitive motion. However, with a lighter tool, I can continue to work without as much irritation!
                            To me, that's the difference between stopping work for the day (around lunch) and finishing out the day.

                              My local HD has em and I was soooo tempted to buy one today. I notice it doesn't have a chuck, instead it's got a ?. Sorry I dunno what that fixed-size thing is called that it has. I like the thought of it (in theory). On the other hand if it doesn't grip my driver bit tight enough then every time I'm done driving a screw I'm going to have to retrieve the driver bit from the head of the screw and re-insert it into the screwgun. I'd rather lug a couple of extra pounds than do that.

                              Am I borrowing trouble? Any feedback from actual owners?

                              ps I build outdoor furniture at the moment so that's where I'd be using it.
