The other annoyance is the forward/reverse button constantly moves. It's too loose.
On the good side, it's comfortable and fits well in smaller spaces, but don't throw away your hand tools yet.
I originally used it sparringly when i would do things with car. Starting in 2015, i'm using it daily in my job as an air conditioning tech. It's perfect for the job. It can fit in cramped areas and combined with one of those pivoting nut drivers, can reach just about anything at any angle.
My job isn' super hard on the tool as we don't do a lot of drilling. Mostly just loosening air conditioning cabinet nuts. It doesn't have any problems drilling through the thin metal of air conditioners when a new hole is required, so 12volts is perfect.
I think i'm going to buy a used one for backup since they don't make them anymore. I love the drill and haven't had any problems yet.
This model seems to have similar power, but what I REALLY like about this tool is that it has a battery indicator that lights up showing relative battery strength (green is good, red is weak). The hammering sound was annoying until I got used to it with my last model, but now it's just part of working. I use this model on a daily basis too, and after a month it feels virtually the same, although the grip is not as comfortable, especially for people with smaller hands than mine I imagine.
The battery lasts a long time, and as a daily user I normally charge mine every 2-3 working days. I can carry a spare and a charger in my work van and they take up very little space, but I usually don't bother, I just charge every 3rd night unless I've had to use it a lot. The impact driver has about 4 times the torque of the drill, but since this weighs about 1/3 to 1/4 of my commercial Milwaukee, I just carry this around in my pocket unless I am mounting a satellite dish or have to drill concrete... that's about all my Milwaukee ever gets used for any more. As a side note... this driver WILL drive a 3" lag bolt into a stud, even without pre-drilling a hole, it just takes a lot longer than 18V commercial power.
I gave it 4 stars due to it being a really good tool, but the handle just is a bit larger diameter than is really comfortable for those with medium to small hands. I'd have given it 4.5 stars if possible, as it is a good investment for a long lasting and reliable, easily portable workhorse.
I use mostly with 3/8 or 1/4 sockets. It's only 12v, but has enough torque to break all 8mm nuts/bolts free as well as about half the 10mm nuts/bolts I try it on. A real time saver even with larger fasteners - I just crack them by hand with a socket wrench and then zip them out with this tool.
And the price is pretty much unbeatable.
So this has mostly replaced my air ratchet, which has a more compact head but is fairly cumbersome and really loud (my neighbors hate my air tools).
