Questions & Answers


How much does the tool weigh without the battery?

Asked by Gus April 28, 2016

Not sure exactly the number. I would guess around 5lb but it is one of the lightest hand held units that I have ever worked with and I use these on a daily basis in my line of work.

how many batteries come with it

Asked by billymech October 7, 2016

Depends on the package but the one I picked up came with 2x 2.0AH packs which have plenty of juice to last all day in most construction jobs.

Does this impact driver remove the lug nuts on my camper wheels?

Asked by grobone September 18, 2016

I would not recommend this product for quite so heavy a job as that. You probably need the next grade up to get the required torque

Can i use this to tighten lug nuts on a car?

Asked by Steve November 2, 2015

No will not do lug nuts u need a impact 1/2" drive


Asked by TOOLMAKER July 25, 2018

There is no adjustment for torque setting.

Does this impact driver have 3 speed settings?

Asked by ojcwn July 15, 2017

No, but the trigger is speed variable. High R's until it jumps to impact then slows considerably. Very popular drill in construction.

input power to charger?

Asked by eran October 18, 2015

120 volt standard. USA. Outlet

(What's this)
This is a good quality & powerful compact impact driver. It is very compact, is lightweight, and has an ergonomic design that fits well in my hand. It offers decent torque at 1460 lb-in. It is very easy to use and has the basic settings to control rotation direction and a center position to lock the trigger. It can handle tough jobs and other normal work around the house. Loading bits and releasing them is relatively easy. It has an LED light that is nice & bright. Trigger operation is smooth and you can easily control the speed. It comes with a belt clip that can be installed on your preferred side. It comes with two 18V batteries so you always have a spare when you need one! The batteries are 2.0Ah lithium-ion and they last long. They also have a charge level indicator. The charger is huge but that's because it is a "smart" charger that includes a cooling fan and also optimizes the charging process to make sure it charges fast yet does not degrade battery life. The provided case is heavy duty and is made to last. Definitely recommend.

I put this to good use right away assembling a shed and it has been great. Well worth the money. If price wasn't an issue, I would have gone with a Makita with larger batteries, but the 2.0 Ah did just fine as I used one and charged the other.
