While walking the aisles of Home Depot I came across this weird looking tool, at first for the price I thought it was just another screwdriver set, but to my amazement this was a tiny powered screwdriver. I have been looking for something like this for a while now. so I had to get it.

Nuts & Bolts of the Husky

The husky is small with a fair amount of torque for its size. It is designed for the smallest of jobs like: remote control cars, helicopters and planes,computers, cell phones, electronics, etc…  It is powered by 2 standard alkaline AAA batteries. The display case also doubles as a container to hold the tool and the included accessories.

Review

Personally I really like this tool, I am always tinkering with small projects. The unit is light and powerful, it is powered by 2 AAA batteries that easily slide into the end. The driver itself is surprisingly ergonomic, you can hold it like a pen with ease. The switch is a forward and reverse momentary switch located perfectly within fingers reach. I used the driver on a brushless Traxxas Slash to remove the bumper and skid plate. The driver had plenty of torque for this application. For tight screws you can twist the entire driver like a hand driver while holding down the power to break the screw free.  The packaging also doubles as a case for the driver. As you can see in the picture below I trimmed off the tabs to make the cap fit better. Included is a 12 bit set including: Standard, Phillips, Torx and Allen.

Conclusion

This is a must have tool. It has a great price point, lifetime warranty and has hundreds of uses. I liked it so much I bought 4, but I also have a compulsive shopping habit…….Im getting better, 6 months ago I would have bought 10 of them!
