So I'm at walmart for my normal shop stuff, and see this for $69. Includes battery and charger. So I get it. First things first, it took a while to charge. I didn't care for that. Also the LED just above the battery, which casts a shadow on the top side of what your using it on. (Bolt, nut, screw etc etc)... I don't care for that, especially in low light area's. And the variable, I don't really care for. I like to adjust the torque before I squeeze the trigger. According to the paperwork, it's got about 1700 INCH lbs of torque which is about 170ft lbs. Too much for many applications.
But, with that said. It's not bad. The cons listed above, I can live with. It feels good in my hand. The trigger is about the right length from the back of the grip to the trigger. The light is plenty bright.
When you squeeze the trigger, the empty chuck rotates with no wobble. I put a deep well 9/16 in it and squeezed the trigger and got some wobble out of the socket and a little out of the attachment. But still very little out of the chuck.
Question is, how long it will last. From what I understand, this is brand that sold exclusively to Walmart. That makes me think it's done cheaply. But the "Hyper Tough" brand, which was about $50, I skipped over because of what I've already seen from that brand.
