5.0 out of 5 stars This tool rocks!, March 15, 2009
This review is from: Bosch PS40-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Impact Driver (Tools & Home Improvement)
Within 10 minutes this awesome little tool became my absolute favorite item in the shop. I do a lot of quick and dirty assembly of things out of 2x4s and 3" drywall screws. Before I had this driver, I used a drill to drive those screws. Every time I did, by the time I was done my wrist would be killing me. Why? Because to drive a long phillips head screw through 2 2x4s you have to push really hard on the drill to keep it engaged with the head of the screw. And even then, it would often strip the screw head and/or fail to sink the screw all the way.

Now enter the ps40-2a. With this thing I can drive 3" drywall screws all day long, and I can hold the tool with two fingertips when I do it. I'm not kidding. 2 fingertips and no pressure is all that's required to hold this tool in place while it pounds your screws through the wood effortlessly.

It surprised me at first that this thing is slower than a drill. It is also quite loud when the hammer action engages (I use ear protection with it). But neither of those things is enough to dampen my 5 star rating. If you ever have to drive long screws into wood and know what I'm talking about with hurt wrists from pushing on your regular drill, then order this thing today. You'll be so glad you did.
