Summary: I use this tool for working on my hobby quality RC cars and trucks. It is PERFECT for it! I dont know how I did with out it...The adjustable clutch works like a charm, Set it to 1 or 2, or and it wont over tighten screws that thread into plastic.
Summary: I bought this tool to use at work as a screw driver for computer hardware assembly, beside this Makita, I have three other cordless tools made by different manufacturers. I hardly use them because they can not perform as this Makita. It is a little pricecy, but it worths the money.
Summary: I am a copier technician, and wanted something to speed up removing copier covers with multiple screws. I had been using a ratcheting screwdriver, which worked well but still took a while on machines that use 10-15 screws to secure a single cover.
Summary: Purchased this unit to replace an 8-year old Milwaukee stick. The Milwaukee worked OK - but power, low RPM, and battery life were big drawbacks. It was light, though - and that's important to me. The Makita is a heavier unit, but I'm adjusting to it pretty quickly.
Summary: My old AEG (now made by Milwaukee) rechargeable screwdriver that could be bent or used straight (like this model) has seen better days and I've gone through at least 6 battery replacements on it over the years, so I researched what was out there in today's market.
Summary: I bought this driver because I wanted to update a couple of B&D pieces I have. I own a 3.6v B&D Versapak with a magnetic tip holder and clutch. I also own a 7.2v B&D Versapak keyless chuck drill. I have used these for years with only a few complaints.
Summary: I own the impact model of this 7.2 driver and often thought it was a little too aggressive for most cabinet hardware work. So I thought i would get the DF010DSE with the clutch and light. I have been a little disappointed in the power with this unit.
Summary: Driver control well but not lot a power but do what it suppose to do Drive screws in and out it feel solid and great build I work lot on electrical and electronic board in fryer,steam oven, food warmer I put it on the oven which is very hot or sometime spilled hot oil on it and leave it inside...
