Yes.
I was in Japan a couple years ago and picked up a red TD171 there. Been running it daily ever since and absolutely love it. Powerful, compact, and durable (it's taken some pretty big drops and kept on going like nothing happened).

For my money I would go with the Makita and not the Hilti.

Either that or go with the Ridgid driver. Great gun.

Re: Highest Quality 1/4 Inch Impact


Milwaukee is a good bet alone, and when wanting multiple tools on one platform.

I've ran 1 1/2-2" self tappers with the smaller 1/4" surge impact as fast as I can all day long.. and the 9amp almost makes the whole day.

I've mentioned it before, it'll drive 30+ 6-7" trusslocks as fast as you can run them as well, but I am sure it will overheat and burn out. So, I now run the 1/2" impact for that portion of work, or on other large lags being we do enough to warrant the additional gun.

9amp? You look like popeye?

For trusslocks and similar fasteners I use a drill. Faster and better battery life. Drove 18 12" 3/8" GRKs a few days ago. High speed. Didn't use 1 bar of battery.

We'll rip through a box and a half with the 1/2" impact in a half hour using the trusslok pole.. One of these days that little 1/4" hex mandrel is going to blow up though!
