I think they were trying to hit a price point ($99) and run through an overproduction of screwdrivers. The drill and I driver is still sitting at $129 I think.

That said, my buddy bought it and likes the screwdriver well enough.

Yea, heard good reviews on the screwdriver. But you can basically do the samething with a drill and more. Idk

I bought the kit when it was $99 have a lot of m18 and figured I'd get my m12 loving started!!

I was very optimistic ab the power and runtime as it is not the fuel version..also I'm used to the greatness my m18 fuel drill and impact provide!!

first thoughts are that I really really like the compact size and weight!! Both have side clips and they are easy to forget that their hooked to your belt

The impact has some balls for its minimal size & weight!! I was very surprised..it's not gunna sink a 6" lag bolt but it has no problem with sinking 3" screws into all types of wood..it also performed well with a self tapping screw into steel!!

*specs

-1000 ft. Lb. torque

-2500 rpm

-3300 ipm

-only 1.9 lbs!!!

The screw driver is jus that..kinda slow rpms but it still performed quite well..it did great pre drilling cabinets & aluminum storm doors..it's got the torque for smaller drilling but certainly doesn't do it in any hurry..

*specs

-175 ft. Lb. torque

-500 rpm

-1.7lbs

Both drills provide a lengthy runtime on the slim pack they come with..easily get a day out of a charge!!

Overall the impact surprised me and I find myself reaching for it over the m18 most of the time(unless I need some raw ass kickin power haha)..the power lost is worth the light & slim design!! The screwdriver has its place but it is certainly limited(it is after all only a "screwdriver"

Perfect for light to medium duty and great to keep in the house!!

That review is pretty outdated. The brushed M12 drills were updated about 2 years ago. That kit has the newer drills with better spec's

Good call..a few specs in my post were off but they are updated now!!

Wonderour if Dan was the camera guy.... A classic, now only if they would continue doing tool fights. I miss those, the last one with the tool boxes was comical.
