    I have a tired old Sears power screwdriver (came as a freebie with a drill years ago), and I've gotten a lot of use out of it. This little Metabo is unbelievably torquey, so I think it'll make a good replacement. It's going into my Thanksgiving stocking.

    I had always been a Dewalt man but their lower volt batteries I was never impressed with. I have the Bosch below and it works excellent.

    Never heard of Metabo, who makes them?

    Thanks Vaughn

    Myself and a friend both ordered one of those.

    I like that standard chuck.

    Outstanding Vaughn! My Dad will be getting an early Christmas present! (from Mom she needed some ideas and we already have his presents) They are in the midst of renovating a "new" house and this little powerhouse will be great! He hurt his shoulder years ago and holding up his heavy drill/driver for a long time takes it's toll. Considering he'll be 80 this winter, I think he deserves a new labor saver!
    Thanks again for taking the time to pass this along.

    PS Randy, Metabo is a German company.
