Kind of a bummer for me, as the rest of my tools are 18V, but ah well, I do like what I have.Makita dude said:Our 14.4 is just as strong as the DeWalt 18V.
I've heard the same from every deck guy in regards to converting to impact drivers from drill drivers. :Thumbs:DecksEtc said:Update for those interested - I picked up my 18V Hitachi Impact Driver last week and man do I wish I had it at the beginning of the season. Or, years ago for that matter! Not only is it awesome for lag bolts (naturally! LOL) but driving decks screws with it is a dream. The ratcheting action when driving screws is the best! - My very good Hitachi 1/2" drill/driver that came in my previously purchased kit is now my 2nd drill. Also, the weight of the 18V impact driver is much less and the 3.0 Amp Ni-MH battery goes almost all day before having to be changed.
Again, just my $.02 worth...
