Style Name: Two Battery
I bought this because I needed a low torque, light weight, ergonomic power screwdriver and this is the best I have found to date. Dewalt has become very good at designing tools that feel good in your hand and this is no exception. Because you can rotate this from pistol grip to in-line, you can get comfortable in almost any application.

The gyroscopic function is great. It takes about 30 seconds to get used to. You no longer need to remember which way the switch goes to tighten or loosen the fastener. A turn of the wrist controls both direction an speed. The trigger only turns the power on or off. Nothing moves until you turn your wrist. To stop, just let go of the trigger. You can turn your wrist back towards your start position to slow down or even to stop, but if you go past the start position, the chuck will start turning in the opposite direction. So the easiest and quickest way to stop is to let go of the trigger.

The 15 clutch positions give you good control on the lower end to this tool's torque range. The Max setting seems to be a big jump in torque over the highest setting, but this is not a powerful tool, this is a finesse tool. This is a replacement for a manual screwdriver or ratcheting screwdriver. I useually drive the fastener down to contact, release the trigger, and manually give the tool approximately 1/8 of a turn. That works great for me. I can also manually break a tight fastener loose, press the trigger, turn my wrist and remove the fastener. The LED lights can come in handy at times.

The 1/4" hex drop in chuck works very well. I have used a 1/4" hex to 1/2" drive socket adapter without any problems and 1/4" hex bits are held securely. I don't know what this tool can do with wood screws, but is does exactly what I bought it for and better than I thought it would.

It's a specialized tool. If you drive lots of light-duty or medium-duty screws, you'll appreciate that it's smaller and 35-50% lighter than mainstream hex drivers. You might like the twist-control better than trigger control. Electricians and repair techs might love this thing.

You're signing up for yet another tool-specific battery and charger system (DeWalt 8-volt). I always count to ten before doing that. It looks like replacement batteries (MSRP $53.50) are soon to be available online for $28 - $30 (see Note 1).

Occasional users may prefer a mainstream 12-volt driver that has better power, RPM, and battery specs, and can share batteries with other 12-volt tools.

- - - Twist control vs Trigger control - - -

►How it works: When you press the trigger, the tools lights up, makes a humming noise, and takes note of its orientation. You then twist it as if starting to tighten or loosen a screw. Twist it about 10 degrees for a nice, slow minimum speed of 1/2 rev per second. More twist gets you more RPM. 35 degrees or more gets you the full 430 RPM. Speed adjustment is smooth and without problem.

It's a SPEED control, not a power control. If you hold it still, it will continue to deliver the same RPM, even if the job at hand gets tougher or easier, or all load is removed.

While holding the trigger, you can change speed or direction as much as you want, just by rotating the tool to new position. It works equally well at any angle.

DeWalt's says it responds to how QUICKLY you rotate it. I notice it reacting mainly to how FAR you rotate it.

►Will you like it? At first it's very cool. Then a little annoying because it's not what you're used to. I'm not sure where I'll end up on this.

Style Name: Two Battery Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is different from your standard drill/screwdriver. With those guys, you push the switch and it turns. Push it harder and it spins faster. Do that with this and it just vibrates. Twist your wrist a bit and it starts to turn. Twist it farther and it spins faster. Bring it back to neutral and it slows and stops. Twist the other way and it'll spin in the other direction.

There's plenty of torque for most household tasks. I drove half a dozen 3" #14 wood screws into pre-drilled holes without it lagging (much). It's perfect if you need to screw or unscrew a switch faceplate. The adjustable clutch prevents you from overdriving screws and stripping out holes.

What don't I like? Well, with a traditional driver/drill, if I want to snug down a screw, I just tap the trigger. I'll often set the clutch fairly loose, drive in a bunch of screws, and then go back and tighten up everything with the clutch set much tighter. You can't do that with this tool. You push the button and nothing happens. You have to twist it slightly to get it to spin, but you can't turn it when the bit is in an already tightened down screw...you might as well be using a manual screwdriver at that point. Likewise, once it starts it turning, you can't untwist your wrist into a more relaxed position or it stops. If you let off the trigger to stop it, your wrist is already twisted...you have to remember to keep the power engaged and turn your wrist back to neutral when you do want to stop it. If you don't go back to a neutral position, you have to twist your wrist even farther to get it going again. That's uncomfortable.

So, as I said in the headline, this takes a bit to get used to. It's great for anything that can be tightened in one fell swoop.
