Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosh Impact Since owning Bosh power tools I have yet to purchase another brand. This impact driver is small enough to get into the tight spots, has amazing balance and is comfortable to grip. The biggest selling point for me was the 2 "fat pack" batteries that came with this package. If you have another compatible Bosh power tool, the batteries are interchangeable, so you can mix and match fat and slim batteries to suit your needs. The only reason that Quality took a small hit was the fact that this tool came in a soft fabric case vs. the hard plastic case that other tools are protected in. There is also no secure place to put the bits and sockets inside the case, so they end up all over inside the case. Overall still an outstanding tool that gets the job done fast and is a pleasure to use! June 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Expensive, but worth every penny. This Bosch Impact Driver is a lightweight beast! Lightning quick to change bits, and can hold 2 small or 1 longer bit in molded opening at base. I just drove over 75 construction grade screws into Pressure Treated lumber and 1" thick sub flooring plywood. Didnt even come close to stripping 1 screwhead. Is it louder than a normal driver? Yes. But it cut my project time in half and I used half as much muscle to do it! And I was able to fit this baby in tight spaces and hold it longer at strange angles as it is half the weight of my DeWalt 18v drill driver. And I'll never have to switch bits back and forth from my drill driver. Drill for drilling and driver for driving and saving me time and energy. The carrying case is not as bad as others say, especially if you store it in a large hard locking case with other tools. Reminds me of a 12x12 CD case that is soft but sort of ridgid. Charger is so quick, and I do recommend the fat pack batteries...still on almost full charge after those 75 screws. January 28, 2014
