I had been using the DeWalt Right Angle cordless drill motor for a while but wanted something a little smaller (so I could get into smaller spaces between framing and easily drive longer screws). I purchased a refurbished model from the website and have been using it steadily now for several years. I have used this in the garage for automotive repairs, for driving lag bolts and screws into large lumber and for driving screws, mostly into framing and mostly larger screws (2-4inch). Pros: The battery lasts a very long time and holds power basically until you're ready to replace with another. Although I don't use it all day long, I have used it on longer projects and have only had to change the battery a few times - most of the time, a single battery provides enough juice for the majority of jobs. I have never had trouble driving any wood screw (and have even snapped a few screws due to the torque which is able to be applied#. It will bog when driving larger lag bolts #which are really well beyond the intention of the device#. The size makes it idea to get in between framing studs and drive longer screws #something I had difficulty doing with the Dewalt). I find the flexibility in the neck perfect although I mostly use it at a right angle. It has become my "goto" screw driving tool. Cons: Can't think of any. Highly recommended

I have owned this tool for a few years. It was my first in the 12v collection. As a drill driver it works great, and I have used it for tight spaces where no other drill would do. The power seems good and it has done most things I have asked it to. I love the swivel head. The bit receiever is kind of deep, so for small bits they sink deep and are almost not usable. The electronic clutch doesn't work very well. If there is something that needs light torque I go to my Bosch pocket driver with the manual clutch. I have had this tool on the lightest setting and it still seems to have a hard time cutting the power before it senses that it needs to stop. The manual clutch on my pocket driver works like a dream. Also the trigger on this is sensitive. It is hard to depress the trigger and get anything between too slow and full power. Overall, I still like this tool, but my Bosch pocket driver is what I reach for first unless I need a wierd angle or something. I would have easily given this tool 5 stars were it not for the clutch and trigger issues.

Compact with power
from Verona NJ
Bought this because I was so pleased with the 12-Volt drill driver and impact drivers. Great tool for inside/under cabinet work.
Fits your hand perfectly.
This is the best right angle low profile driver I have used. Plenty of power and battery life. The trigger and grip are perfectly matched to my hand right where I need to apply pressure to drive screws unlike prior drivers I have used.
very powerful, good torque, and versatility
from Denali, AK, United States
I bought this driver about 6 yrs ago, borrowed a client's one time when I was repairing his walk in cooler, I'm was pretty impressed with it's powerful motor, and amazing versatility. You can get into those spots you can't evem get a nutdriver into, and it has the torque to get the job done, the movable drive head has saved the day many times. Big plus- shared battery system

Hit or miss
from Norfolk, VA, United States
I've had one for four years and it finally died so I bought a new one and with in two days it died not good all I used it for was taking screws in and out of ac units
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Poor Control Trigger
from South Carolina
We purchased 7 of these units and had trigger failure with every one. Some of the units were boarderline right out of the box. The triggers would work then not work it was a real problem trying to get the job done. I like Bosch tools and would recommened many of them to everyone I meet, however this tool should have never made it out of R&D.
Tool performs as presented but a bit large.
from Monroe, OR, United States
I purchased the tool on line, but should have fondled one first. I envisioned a tool that supplemented my PS20 for getting into tight places. I was surprised that it was much larger than expected, actually a bit large to grip and hold. I used it to rebuild some sliders in cabinets and it was very functional and performed well. An LED in this tool would be very handy addition.
Nice tool but didn't hold up.
from Duluth, MN
Nice tool but the gear box didn't hold up. I have had this tool over a year. It hasn't had a lot of use or abuse. The gear on the main motor shaft came loose and slips. Now the tool is useless. Replacement part cost as much as the entire tool.
Incredibly useful; goes where other drills won't
from H3Z 2X8
I am only an occasional tool user, but have used tools for 45 years. This is the first review I have ever written for a product. This driver allows you to drill and drive in places that no other power tool does. It has enough power and torque adjustments to get delicate and rough jobs done. It is suprisingly powerful for its size and voltage. I think this will be my number one driver for just about all of my day-to-day tasks around the house and workbench.
