12-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Cordless Palm Impact Screwdriver Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 94.

I used it to take apart and uninstall a work bench and some cabinets held together with 3 1/2" sheet rock screws. Worked very well, easy to hold and made working in tight spaces much easier. For such a small tool, it has a lot of torque. I like the feature that allows you control the speed / torque with the amount of pressure you put on it. The battery lasted a long time too, one charge did the whole project and didn't come close to running out of power. I still like my driver for the big stuff, but this will do 80% of the DIY projects around the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cool tool First I love the design and the idea behind this product. It's comfortable to hold and easy to operate. I do feel like it could be a bit more powerful though as depending on what you're driving it can operate a little bit slow but I have yet to come across anything that it hasn't been able to handle. The build quality is great as you'd expect from Ridgid, but I feel like the battery could fit a bit more flush to the unit. Could just be the one I got but the battery doesn't sit flush and there's a bit of a gap between where the battery meets the body of the unit so it looks a bit off. It's nothing that seems to disturb the operation of the driver though so I'm okay with it.

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.

Love the compactness of it; gets into tight spaces and has enough power for the small-to-medium jobs. A little loud if near your head (suggest ear plugs). Light feature a real benefit in tighter spaces. I will use this a lot! And, it takes the larger 12V batteries just fine. Great overall tool for the home repairs toolkit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy size and powerful The size is great. It fits into tight locations and has the power needed to drive or remove stuck screws. Push to engage driver is very convenient.
Date published: 2017-05-03
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Little Power You have to push in to engage it so pre-drilling holes are out of the question (cant get the drill bit out). Didnt have enough power to screw two cabinets together in the side. Love Rigid but didnt like this piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plenty of torque I borrught this product to get in tight spots and having something handy around the house. Overall I line the screwdriver, it fits nice in hand and it's not hard to operate. The only downside to this driver is if you are drilling small holes with a drill bit you can't pull and reverse, because it's pressure operated which means you have to apply pressure for it work. So if you are just looking for a screwdriver then this is great but to do anything else, like drilling then don't but
