Woodworker’s Journal Magazine reviewed 10.8V and 12V Compact Impact Drivers in their April 2009 issue. They reviewed the Makita TD090DW 10.8V Ultra-Compact Impact Driver, as well as products from Bosch, Milwaukee, Hitachi, Rigid, and Ryobi. Tests were based on three criteria:
Finesse: Driving smaller screws used in woodworking projects
Power: Driving larger screws typical with house repair
Feel and performance
The reviewer liked the Makita best, and said that the TD090DW “provides a nice overall balance between power, finesse, feel and price.” Click here for the complete review.
