MetaboApparently Bosch and Metabo are vying for the “smallest cordless drill/driver” as Metabo released their new PowerMaxx Kit within days of Bosch’s PS20 which makes the same claim.

The 4.8v PowerMax weighs only 1.5 lbs. while still driving a (claimed) 95 10×1 in. screws on a single charge.  Metabo says the battery recharges in under 2 hours.  It also feature a two-speed gearbox, which gives it a no-load speed of 0-200 RPM in screw mode and 0-600 RPM in drill mode, and a 360 degree rotating offset screw driving attachment to make driving screws in tight spaces easier.  Maximum torque is listed as 80 in/lbs.

So, how do they stack up?
