Some people own power drills, some own screwdrivers, some even own both, but what about power drivers.? How many people own one of those ..?
Well, I for one, can say that I have owned, and still own several power drivers. But what is a power driver and why does it differ from a power drill.?
A driver is designed really for screwing and unscrewing, rather that drilling, as the power drill is designed for.
And this is one of those power drivers, from the well known company called Bosch.
It is a blue and black machine with a few splashes of orange. The trigger offers a two speed action, which basically means that you press the trigger a little bit and you get speed one, press it all the way and you get speed two. Simple.
Just above the trigger there is a little orange button that slides from side to side. This is the directional button meaning that this driver screws and unscrews.
The chuck is a fixed hex type so you will need the hex bits that slot into it. These are cheap enough so there's no real hassles with buying them.
The 3.6volt battery is a thin one which slots up the handle itself meaning that there's no bulkiness sticking out at the bottom. This does have a disadvantage as you can't stand this on its handle as it will topple over, but the wrist strap gives you the option of keeping it on you no matter where you are.
Usually, for me, these little driver type devices don't seem to have the power to stamina ratio, meaning that either battery runs dead within a few minutes of the motor does not have the power to get the screws in and out. But this one is different, it has both the stamina and the power to get even those stubborn jobs done.
This driver comes with a single 3.6volt battery, a little wrist strap and a whopping great big charger that the long battery slots into. The battery takes about 2 hours to charge fully and, once charged, can last a fair few hours of screwing.
And the price..? well, this one is about £90 or more, or less? But if you plan on doing a fiar amount of screwing then this is worth having in the draw as it saves getting blisters on the palms of your hands whilst you're screwing.
