The Makita is almost the exact same size as the hitachi, you would almost think the case was the same. Haven't used the Makita but have seen them. The makita is pricey, but you'll probably never buy another one in your life. I still use Makita tools that were my dad's before he passed away. Drills, impacts, etc.. you can barely see the letters anymore but the tools still work great. You get what you pay for, from B&D all the way up to Makita, snap-on, etc..

Default Tamiya PT01

Anyone here tried the Tamiya Electric Screwdriver PT01 which is actually made by Makita? Its identical to the white Makita, only black in color , has an adjustable clutch and comes in a nice bag. Been eyeing it for some time but the price is a killer!

then there is this POS...


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.
Opps, my bad , i was talking about the second one, the guy at home depot said it had just came out when i got it, guess he meant they just started carrying them.

Milwaukee 0490-22 Top of the heap. I have used the older one that is Nickle Metal for over 10 years. My wife bought me the new LIPO one for my birthday and it is so much better than the old one

I like Sears Craftmans. It has a 2 speed tranny so you don't melt plastic parts
