Just ordered one on Ebay, two batteries, charger and case for $200.

Anyone have any experience with one? I have the new Bosch 18v Litheon and I'm wondering if I'm going to notice that much of a difference?

Doubtfull, the panny's are some sweet cordless tools and should hang with, or out pace most other 18v.

Mostley because of its brushless motor.
Agreed. Pannys get extremely high ratings in every test they are a part of.

I'm pretty sure Hilti uses Panasonic batteries.

The 18V drill is very nice but the original poster was asking about an impact driver not a drill. Thats like offering someone an orange when the ask about an apple.

I rarely see anyone using panasonic around here, not even sure if there is a service centre locally. I'm more concerned about longevity.

By far the best impact I have used due to its light weight, brushless motor and 3 speed gearing for certain applications. Nothing but the best to say. Have had it for over a year as well and love em.

So I got the impact today, but he sent the wrong one!:censored:

I received the 1/2 impact wrench and not the 1/4 driver that was listed on the auction, guy didn't really know what he had I guess?

I think I might try an adapter and if that doesn't work out it's going back on ebay.

You can get the panisonic 1/2" to 1/4 hex, they make them for the 15.6v impact drill combo. they work well and maybe add 5/8" to the leingth

This looks like it.
I'll probably go check the HD to see if they have anything because there is no way I can wait til an adapter is shipped in to use it.:laughing:

i doubt the chepo will have any kind of adapters like that for the pani, unless ryobi makes one:laughing:

i on the other hand just picked up a festool c12 with all the chucks so it looks like alot of my old stuff will be listed there soon, the c12 is 4 drills in one and alot of umph for a 12v:shutup:

The C12 has the same torque as a 18v. AND I know that last fall I was installing a kitchen and my 12 year old 12v(or 14.4v) Panasonic Drill needed to be recharged twice during the day (not balanced well but it's not dead so I'm not throwing it) and the C12 ran out at 4:30 p.m. and started the charge on site and finished the 70 min. charge at home.

The trim carpenters were drilling in the sills, not that I've ever seen that before. Their DeWalt 18v's, both of which looked pretty new were needing a battery switch about every 45 minutes, more or less; the only power in the house was close to the kitchen

I had just shelled out for the c12 and I was paying attention to it's efficiency (SP?). When the Panasonic packs it in I will consider a Craig's list c12 or a new T15 as it has some fantastic features.

yes the c12 seams to be unstopable:thumbsup:, i bought it barely used on craigslist for under $390 including shipping,and all the chucks!:thumbup:

i like the t-15 its SWEEET

for impacts drills though i gotta say im very happy with the makita lithion, they fit into b12 cabs for securing faceframes!! i just bought the c12 for drilling out water and waste pipes, and the right angle and centrotec attachments are a bonus:whistling
