Thus far, I love everything about this driver! Faced with a roof job on my folks terribly rotten roof, and recalling the last time I was driving screws through simple plain old pine and how I couldn’t get screw in without stripping it, I decided to bite the bullet, and buy an impact driver. I looked at a few, but decided to splurge and get the 18V dewalt (in a kit, which included the 2 batteries).

I’m glad I did. So far, it drives pretty much ANYTHING through ANYTHING. It’s as though the wood is a figment of my imagination. I used it a fair amount today, with no loss of power. This tool isn’t cheap, but I think it should last me a long time, and I’m glad I got it.

Use mine every day. Haven’t found anything it won’t screw.

I have the same one at home and use it for everything but drilling. A friend has the ryobi version. We were working on some cabinets at his house and his wife came out and asked him why I was going faster, was it a bigger battery or more voltage. Our answer was simply Blue vs Yellow. Both are good, but Yellow is better. We have 4 ryobi drills and 2 impacts at school, The kids are quick to check out the impacts so they have them for class.
