I went and bought this a while ago and I hate it. It's not that it's Ryobi, it's just that it misses the mark. So don't buy one of these.

    I've found that while I have a bevy of 20v Dewalt drills and tools the ones I reach for most often are my 12v line. They're light and compact but also very robust and still get the job done. If you recall the picture I posted many years back of the large built-in bench I built in my garage I used my little 12v Dewalt drill to set all of those 3" screws. It didn't miss a beat. I only reach for the 20v stuff when I've got a massive project and need the extra oomph but mostly the added run time from the larger battery.

    Meh,
    All you need for wall outlets and covers is a couple of these. Did several years of apprenticeship in the home const. trade without power tools.
    I know, it was in the mid 80?s and power tools were virtually non-existent.

    Can't a guy own/use both? I do and my wobble screwdrivers are still on my belt (along w/my 12v Dewalt impact drill) which I still have set up out in the garage years after being in the trade. Whenever I do electrical work around the house (w/o a permit of course and always hot!) I'm thankful I still have that setup and don't have to play "Pocket Electrician" while doing shade-tree sparky work. I would never use a drill on a receptacle cover but that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's uses it also means that just because you use one doesn't mean you can't use one of those whiz-bang items you pictured. Hell, the real purist would say that your wobble isn't as good as the old fashioned straight job. lol

    If I were still doing electrical const. Yes, I would have modern cordless power tools. I use cordless power tools almost every day at work, every truck has a drill and sawzall. But for home owner and occasional electrical maintenance, it takes more time to break out the cordless than it does to take care of the problem.

    Picked these up a few weeks ago.

    I knew I would appreciate the impact for driving screws, just not how much more.

    The multi tool has become indispensable with the recent rework I've had to do here.

    I have the 12v Dewalt driver. I LOVE THE THING TO DEATH. I use it every day for work. When it dies or gets lost/stolen I won?t go even one day till I buy a new one. Perfect size. I?ve tried them all too.

    Can you post a picture? I wish I bought one of the small ones that looks like a fat screw driver.

    I?ve wanted these for a very long time and finally got one. I like it so much, I ordered the 6? version as well.
