I own Makita cordless impact driver that came with a fluoroscent work light and a drill. Two batteries are dying after 3 years of quite heavy home remodeling use.

Cost of batteries replacement (two of them) is around one hundred sixty bucks. Therefore, I purchased this impact driver.

- Ergonomics is very good - holding it in my palm is great (I have a rather short fingers)
- Weight distribution is great too - see the handle position in the middle of top part (it looks like a letter T with a handle slightly slanted). Handle in my Hitachi drill is almost at the end of top part. This causes drill part with chuck to go down when holding drill horizontally. This puts strain on my palms. No strains when using Makita. A pleasure to work with.
- Corded means I never have to worry about charging batteries and buying batteries (money saver)
- Made in Japan which means that it should last forever
- Lightweight - I believe it weighs less than a cordless impact driver
- Long cord - I believe it is 8 feet long
- Drives screws consistently thanks to 120V supply
- Well designed plastic case has plenty of space for cord and other accessories

- Lack of LED light (LED light is very useful)
- Cord can be sometimes in a way
- Expensive due to the fact that it was made in Japan (no regrets though)
- It has longer body compared to cordless impact driver - it might be difficult to fit between joists especially when driving longer screws.

Overall I am pleased with this impact driver that drives #10 4" Philips decking screws quite nicely (I used 9/64" drill bit to drill pilot holes using 1/8" drill bit might cause failure if you drive screw through knot).

This should really get 6 stars. 5 for being a quality impact driver made by Makita, and an extra bonus star for being the only corded impact driver on the market.

I've basically sworn off cordless tools since batteries turned out to be such a hassle, and Li-Ion tools are still in their infancy. Being the only corded impact driver on the market leaves one little choice, which is usally a bad thing. However, in this case, you really can't go wrong with this one.

While this torqe ratings for this driver are lower than the leading battery powered drivers (1062 in-lb vs ~1500 in-lb for many 18V cordless), you'd be hard pressed to really miss the "extra" torque the battery drivers could provide, especially when driving screws or small lags. 1062 in-lb is enough to break most screws, so it should have no problem driving any fastener that's thrown at it.

The impacting begins at a good torque level, and you're either going to bury the screw an inch into the wood, crack the wood, or break the screw before you start stripping the head. This means less effort in applying pressure to prevent skipping, which means less fatigue and better control. I only have to apply a fraction of the pressure to this driver to keep the bit from slipping as when I'm using a regular drill.

This is a high quality tool, with good balance and trigger feel. The belt clip is handy, and the included carrying case has ample room for a set of impact bits in their own storage case.

The only nitpick would be that it'd be ncie to have a grounded power cord - the ground lug provides added holding power to keep the power cord held in an extension cord. Other than that, this is about as perfect as you get for a power tool.

Its a great piece of equipment to have. The impact option allow's you to screws so much more ifficiently, without slipping or stripping the heads of screws. I have my own business as a finish carpenter, and I will tell you, thiss drill is the best drill that I own. Its not like a cordless, that dies all of the time, and only last a couple of years before it needs replacing. And if your wondering about putting regular drill bits, without the hex bottoms to it, you can purchase a 3/8 quick chuck to put on to the drill from makita, which cost about 25$.

I deliberated for quite awhile before buying, but now I can't remember what the big decision crisis was about - this was a great purchase. I guess that, like some others, I thought the price seemed a little high, but a cordless of comparable QUALITY (a key point here) would have a similar or even a higher initial cost, to say nothing of battery replacements over the years. And it would still be a cordless with the attendant disadvantages of that which, for my purposes, outweigh its advantages. I'm to a point where most of my foreseeable projects will be in my basement shop, and this tool makes perfect sense to me in that environment. At least one other reviewer has pointed out that it lacks an LED light and I agree a light would be nice, but in shop conditions that's pretty much a non-issue. And I'll definitely use it outside or elsewhere in the house whenever necessary, without hesitation. When my six-year old cordless VSR drill finally craps out I'll probably get a good quality combo set with a cordless impact driver just for the sheer gluttony of it all - but I'll never regret having bought this one (well, maybe one regret ... it looks like Amazon has dropped the price a few bucks since I bought mine several weeks ago - guess I was too hasty!).
