Ridgid Stealth Impact Driver R86036K

What did you say?  That’s probably something that is said 10 times a day on any job site. We all know how important impact drivers are in order to get the job done.  We also know how loud they are.  Well Ridgid took a look, saw a need and created a tool to solve the problem.  The new Ridgid Stealth will surely shake things up.  So what is the Stealth? The stealth has a little different design compared to current impact drivers on the market today.  Ridgid designed this with a unique hydraulic oil pulse driving mechanism.  The hydraulic...

Milwaukee Gen 2 Fuel 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver – 2753

Milwaukee is bringing some bad a** tools to the market, not that they didn’t before, but I have to say these blow away their previous versions.  Now Milwaukee brought to market it’s Gen 2 Fuel 1/4″ Impact Driver, model 2753.  You can get this tool as a bare tool or with different battery configurations such as compact or XC batteries.  You can even get a kit with their new Gen 2 drill.  If you get this with the XC batteries, it comes with the new 5.0Ah batteries. Coming in at 1,800 in-lbs of torque, a user has more than...

Milwaukee M18 2750-22CT Compact Impact Driver

Well it’s about time.  Yes, Milwaukee came out with a compact impact driver (also a drill/driver and hammer drill, but that’s for next week).  I have been wanting a compact drill and impact for a while.  Now you know I am a big Milwaukee fan, but I did change my drill platform over to Dewalt.  Only reason is because they have a compact drill and impact.  Milwaukee has always had a bigger drill and it’s great for certain applications, but for smaller applications, who really needs all the weight and power?  Now don’t get me wrong, even though this...

Hilti SID 18-A Cordless Impact Driver – Revist

We get a lot of emails asking about certain tools, so I thought this might be a great time to revisit a tool we did over 1.5 years ago, the Hilti SID 18-A.  A lot of people want to know how it’s holding up, did my original opinion change and so on. Right off the bat I can tell you my opinion hasn’t changed one bit about this impact driver.  I still think this is one of the best impacts on the market.  I love the feel, the balance, the power and the features of this tool.  One thing...

Powerful Punch – Bosch PS22-02 12V Brushless Impact Driver

Bosch has been taking names and kicking ass this year with their tools.  While it is still early in the year, they seem to be the only real manufacturer bringing tools to market this year.  In fact, one of my favorite drills is the compact Bosch 18V.  Now let me clarify.  You probably know I have been a wild-man with the Dewalt compact and love it.  While I still love the Dewalt compact, I am really leaning towards the Bosch.  No, it’s not because they sponsor us.  It’s for two reasons.  First, I know Bosch and have had great...

Hammerhead 12V Lithium-ion Right Angle Impact Driver/Auto Hammer

We were contacted a while back about this new concept called the Hammerhead.  After hearing about the concept, we thought it was pretty cool and decided on trying one out. The Hammerhead is a cross between an autohammer and a right angle impact.  Yes, it does both.  All the user has to do is move a switch located on the top and you can change between the two tools.  When you’re using the autohammer feature, the tool comes with a bit you insert into the hex collet.  When not in use, you can store it on the tool.  When...

Friday Night Tool Fight – Milwaukee vs Dewalt 12V Impact Driver

Friday is here and Tools in Action has another tool Fight.  This week we did 12V Impact Drivers, well just two of them.  We took the Milwaukee M12 Fuel vs the Dewalt 12V.  I am just going to cover a little of each tool and let the video do the rest of the talking. The Milwaukee M12 Impact is model 2453-20 (Bare) and 2453-22 (Kit).  The Dewalt model number is  DCF815 (Bare) and  DCF815S2 (Kit). Is this really comparing apples to apples?  No, because there are some significant differences.  However these are the top tools each company is offering...

Dewalt 20V Brushless Compact Drill & Impact Driver – DCK281D2

You may be wondering why I am writing a Dewalt article and not Dan.  After all isn’t Dan the Dewalt guy?  I know a lot of people think I am the Milwaukee guy and Dan is the Dewalt guy.  To an extent that is correct.  Not because we think one brand is better than the other, but just because for us, well for me it’s much easier.  Dan is the guy who likes to keep his tools new.  For me I still use my tools, not as often, but I still get some side jobs where I can break...

Dewalt DCF886 Brushless 1/4″ Impact Driver – Review

                  Even though brushless tools have been out for years, they seem to be all the rage now.  Higher capacity lithium Ion batteries mated to these brushless setups are giving unheard of run times.  DeWALT already released a brushless 3 speed impact last year the DCf895 which is great for applications where you need total speed control.  With this new second round of brushless they are touting their new 2.0 and 4.0 XR battery packs that give up to 33% more run time.  We witnessed this first hand at the recent...
