    I have used both Dewalts and they are very good.

    I use my 1/4 impact for everything, I have yet to round off a wood screw head. I would sugget buying the kits with 6 tools, the light is very handy when wrenching on the ski. The kit is only $200 more than the impact driver by itself.

    I did some research on this and tried several and decided on this one:

    I wouldn't recommend the 9 volt Makita but the 18 volt model will do everything you want on our skis, even the prop nut!!

    Go Lithium ion for these tools guys. The weight different is tremendous and the battery pack life is increased a rediculous amount. If i were going to buy a new tool like this i wouldnt mess with the old style batterys. My brother is project manager of a high rise here in chicago and pretty much every tool on the job site now is a battery powered lithium ion (which is a lot of tools) he says the entire crew cant imagine going back to the old style or corded tools for that matter. I know the Lithium ion makitas are very nice tools, he just took one home from work the other day.

    I have a 14.4 volt Rigid and it's by far my favorite tool. You can pull a jet pump is about 3 minutes.

    Keep in mind that they rate all of them much higher than the actual torque they can produce. Mine was rated at 110 ft-lb and it doesn an honest 35. We tested some others and found similar results.
