Snap on is the best by far, no question. But if it is not in your budget get a Hitachi Bosch or Makita. Snap on has a better trigger more power and an awesome clutch system. I can use one battery for 3hrs which is great because it comes with 2. Absolutely avoid the drivers with internal batteries, they are junk.

hitachi

hitachi

hitachi

and I am a tool snob
no idea what kd2777 is talkin about.

I have two of the db3dl, one for 2mm and 2.5mm. great clutch, tensioned perfect for RC. torquey motor, and spins fast enough so your not sitting there going goofy watching a screw turn. also drills very well too.

got the ryobi first:is weak, spins slow, and inconsistent clutch. it went to the trash after a week. did not want to lose a friend over such a "gift".

the makita, looks great. the specs similar to the hitachi, just likely better built with a stronger battery.

sponsored or not, Imo the Makita is too large for the intended job....I have other small power drills but what's the point of using a larger/heavier tool for a job that the smaller/lighter units works just fine doing.

Thumbs up Ryobi

You just snap a bit in and it holds it without falling out, to release just pull up on the chuck about 1/8" and the bit pops out. It was $39, about $10 more than most, but well worth the extra money.

I have a couple of friends who bought ones without chucks, just a 1/4" hex in the end and they get frustrated cause the bits are always falling out.

Where did you get it from? How do you know how tight to set the clutch?

I use a Bosch GSR Prodrive and is very useful to build cars all day long. I wouldnt have build and rebuilt my Baja without the GSR. I have the hex attachments from Ofna.
