Makita’s compact driver set includes a two-speed drill driver, an impact driver, two lithium-ion batteries, and a 50-minute charger, all packed in a hard case. The impact driver can deliver 800 inch-pounds of torque at up to 3,000 impacts per minute, and the two-speed drill driver spins up to 350 RPM at the lower speed setting and up to 1,300 RPM on the higher speed setting.
I tried these out at my local Home Depot with good results. The coolest thing: After you release the trigger on these, the built-in LED stays on for a few more seconds.
I’d just picked up the Bosch PS-20 and PS-40 set, but if I’d known about this deal I would’ve held out. Performance on both units seemed comparable to the Bosch units, but after about five minutes the HD folks started giving me weird looks, so I had to stop in the middle of my long-term endurance testing.
They were priced at $129 in the Ohio Home Depots — average street pricing is around $155.
