Customer Reviews

12-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Cordless Palm Impact Screwdriver Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More useful than I imagined I actually bought this because it was only $50 more than buying a new battery for my Rigid drill and I needed a battery. What I got was a tool that is a lot easier to use for screws than any I've owned to date. The geometry of the tool, designed so you can grab it and hold it with one hand and put a lot of pressure on the line over the shaft, is just a better design than the usual drill for this purpose. I found it was faster to install a lot of screws, and believe me I have about ever other screw driving device you can think of. So this one gets two thumbs up and I registered it for lifetime warrantee to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I finally broke down and bought one of these for myself on my birthday as I've been looking at them to use in tight areas, I'm a custom cabinet builder and sometimes a full size drill won't fit where I have to put screws in the hardware. Well this little driver was so well thought out I could hardly believe it. Ridgid needs to do a better job at describing this tool so since they can't find an ad man to properly describe it then I'll do it for them.... This 12 volt handheld driver is ergonomically fit to the hand and has no trigger to fumble with while in tight areas, with a slight push of the entire tool onto the screw the tool is activated and the bit starts turning slowly... with more pressure the bit turns faster and with full pressure on the driver the impact is activated. The forward-reverse is a slide where your pointer fingertip reaches comfortably on the front of the driver. This thing is so light and comfortable to use it's amazing. Now I have read someone elses comment and they said this thing was underpowered and it wouldn't drive the screws they were using and I agree but not for the same reason, they were complaining and I am stating a fact... if you want to drive 3" deck screws go get your big drill out and get to work... if you are working on projects that require a little finesse to get them done right then this is your tool.... let's just start calling it the "Finesse driver" by Ridgid. I love this tool and I have a lot of tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Rarely do you purchase an item with high expectations and have it actually deliver as you hoped. The Ridgid Palm Impact Screwdriver not only delivered, it exceeded my expectations! I had a project that required removal and replacement of at least 100 screws in tight spaces throughout a home I was renovating. Instead of using a traditional small screwdriver and taking hours, I was able to complete the project in a fraction of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best little rigid drill I have ever had I obtained the ridgid palm drill and I really liked it. I am a woman who loves to do building etc and this drill will come in handy for tight spaces. I have never purchased a ridged tool before but they seemed to have such a good reputation, I thought I would give it a try. besides, the palm drill seemed very well built and light, and obviously small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Screwdriver This is one of the most useful tools I have. It fits into so many places a regular drill/driver won't. Though small, it drives large screws easily. It's push-to-engage feature is very natural and much appreciate when reaching over long, awkward pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a good little impact driver, small enough to get into small places and enough power to do the job.
