Default Bosch is also Great!

I use my little Bosch 12v lithium drill. It has an adjustable clutch and a regular chuck style end so you don't need to by specific bits.

I actually had a cheap set of Hobao metric wrenches lying around and I removed the bits from the handle and simply chuck them up in my drill.

Works perfectly and the battery will last forever. I see no need to buy a specialty drill for our cars. When I'm done wrenching on my cars, I can actually use the drill for regualr use (I even built a deck with this little drill!)

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.
The new one (the Li-on version, came out about two months ago) is very consistant, not slow, and is extreamly strong in the mid too higher clutch settings and drill mode, and lasts forever.

I will agree. I use this for my work all day, and use one for rc. It's a great tool.

For $5 less you can pick up the eds ones off ebay and the EDS ones are tougher, longer, and come with a nice case.

was in the home depot this morning buying screws and took a pass though the tool section where I looked at the ryobi. there is a new one it seems with a removable battery, 2 speed (with revs similar to the hitachi), and 24 position vs 12 position clutch....

http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/te...drivers/HP53LK

then there is this POS...

http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/po...ordless/HP41LK

the first one is what was on display, only the second one was available on the shelf. make sure you know which one your buying.

i have had the second one in your link for over 2 years now.. no problems what so ever... no sure why its a POS... but for $30 and still going strong after 2 years... and the charge last me a full race day/ weekend... of course thats all relative to the amount of wrenching you do..... i think its a good investment

Agreed, I have had the second one as well for 2 years. Two of us use it quite regularly. I even use it to break loose motor mount screws. Iy has taken alot of abuse and keeps ticking! I think it was $40 when a friend of mine purchased it.

I bought the first one. Is there any difference other than the removable battery?

cause some guys like to break in practice and need to make the first heat. 1 successful screw in with the old ryobi = 4 screws with the hitachi.

not to mention, balance, trigger, battery, etc, etc....

when I had the early ryobi, my hand/thumb always inadvertently pushed on the fwd/rev switch. entertaining..
