Hi. I brought my Ridgid, 12 Volt x 4 Impact Driver Console (Tool Only), while in LA early this year. In my work as a janitor I need to be very flexible with the minimal amount of tools. I usually use a AEG 12-Volt Compact Cordless Drill for all screwing and drilling. Now I only use it for drilling! (The Ridgid match/uses my AEG batteries.) The Ridgid puts the screws in with ease and without the usual stripping of the head. It takes out old screws with ease also without stripping the heads so repairs to treated wooden installations is easier and the end result is better for it. My first job was re-paneling a store shed. I needed to use screws because nails tend to creep out which a re a danger for passing children. The Ridgid had to work hard – 4,2 x 55mm stainless steel screws were used. They are soft metal and when using a drill to screw them in, the head strips often. 750 screws later and none striped with the Ridgid. Fantastic!! :)
Although I wouldn't do it every day as I felt it was pushing the little machine when I later built a water installation using 6 x 80mm galv wood screws and, although the Ridgid worked hard at putting them in, they went anyway. I am impressed.!!
Price difference is major from USA to Sweden. The same machine (AEG) here costs about $200us as opposed to $79.99us = a big save!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Will Great impact driver!
It's great for light/medium duty. Not quite strong enough to remove lug nuts, but gets everything else done with ease.

Excellent Driver. Much faster than a drill. Shouls have come with a battery, but no charger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman This impact driver works great!
I have two other Ridgid 12V drills and they do not drive 3" screws into wood like this driver. Easy change of driver bit.
