DeWalt 14.4 volt Drill/Driver DW990
This drill is so old it's not even listed in the catalogues I've seen of late but it works as well today as it did the day I got it. I've used it non-stop for whole days at times not having to switch batteries. It's driven 2" deck screws through contruction grade 2x4s fastening them to 4x4s, it's driven 2' deck screws through 2 layers of 3/4 plywood into 4x4s, none of the previously mentioned had pilot holes. It has run all day fastening 3/4 oak trim to 2' 2x4 frames and drilled the pilot holes for these screws, in the same day it has fastened pre-drilled 3/4 oak to 3/4 to accomodate wood screws screws. It has driven tec screws through sheet metal into 1/8 and 1/4 angle iron after drilling the pilot holes in short with it's light weight and power it's bar none the best power tool I've ever purchased.

This is the best tool I ever bought. I use it all the time. plenty of power to drive in long screws or tight/ loosen nuts and bolts. I recomend this to anyone. The dewalt tools do a great job and the batteries last a pretty long time. Even if you are just a do it yourselfer, this tool is a must buy.

I have a plumbing company with 4 of these now ,1 on each truck these are awesome. Less fatigue. Removes almost any screw with out caming out and make it easier to drive screws overhead for hangers. This thing will drive 4" screws without predrilling or snapping the heads off!!!!

Must Have Tool
This litle impact is one of the tools that after you own it you wonder how you ever got along without it.
We do boat repair, both in the shop and at the dock. In the shop we have 225PSI worth of air and the tools that it supports. On the dock we have the option to drag along a portable gas power air compressor or one of these.
This impact wins, hands down. It is short and light weight, being able to get into tight spots, easily supported with one hand, and has the power to remove all but the most stuborn rusted bolts that you encounter when changing an engine or a transmission in a salt water boat. The key here is that it is SHORT, front to back, socket to the back of the impact. Very handy. We also have its big brother for the tough stuff, but it is a bit ackward.
Draw backs: 1/2" drive. It would be better suited with a 3/8" anvill, an let the big 18.8V be the 1/2" gun.
:Positive Lock socket retention. In a produttion mechinics world, the anvil needs to have a ball (like a rachet) or a ring (like an air impact) to facilitate quick socket changes without the need to use a pick tool to depress the lock pin each time. This is a pain when you are upside down in a bilge, or standing under a vehicle. This is the only feature that I see that implys Dewalt made this tool for Suzie Home Maker, as we all know how to use an impact with out losing a socket, even my high school student parts washer.
That being said, this is a must have tool for anyone who does on the road, in the water, in the hills repairs.
PS It helps to put a 1/2" to 3/8" adapter on the tool. Now you have circumvented the lock pin and can swap sockets at will. It just makes the tool another inch longer.

Big power...Small package
Have owned this impact driver for about 2 years in that time it has been used on almost a daily basis. The power that is produced from the small lightweight unit is outstanding. The impact feature keeps the screw tip in place with the screw. Works in places where a standard drill will not fit. Has held up very well and has not needed any repairs. This driver has driven 10's of thousands of screws and shows no signs of slowing down. I would recomend it to anyone.

Handy litlle tool
I bought this impact for my wife I have a 28 volt milwakee for big jobs but this thing comes in handy. We got a flat on the side of the interstate and a roadside service truck pulled up and asked if we needed help I told him I wanted to try the impact out and he could help if i needed it. I was able to bust every nut loose instantly that I had put on with my air impact it held up so well i decided to try rotating the tires with it that week and didn't get through the first battery. The compact design and light weight are also a great feature for those who want power in a small package.
