Screwdriver it is quite necessary and a very economical tool. If need to repair anything then you have the tool you need in your own hands – this thing is simply necessary to take with you anywhere. I often used an electric drill – I would use an electric drill for all repairs that I need to make but unfortunately I was always bothered by its weight and keeping the power cord away when I worked.

My search led be to a Hitachi DS12DVF3 screwdriver. This is a fairly inexpensive model and is different from the professional tools that I used to use with its weight as well as its power.

It included two batteries of 1.4 ampere, a flashlight,  a power charger, bit set and a carrying case. As with an entire line of tools this Hitachi screwdriver, has a comfortable, rubberized case and a very original design.

This screwdriver fits perfectly in my hand, at this manner the reverse switch will not be accidentally pressed, but if need to press the button the you can do it immediately with your thumb or finger. Adjustment of the torque (22 positions) will reduce its power and prevent you from screwing a  punch on your drywall.

While drilling, this screwdriver is no substitute for an electric drill, but would do well with wood or interior walls made gypsum blocks. Working with a brick wall is too complex for this screwdriver – the drill in the holder starts scrolling therefore you need to use a special drill with hexagonal base.

With heavy use, the battery varies 2-3 times a day. A full charge will allow you to work quickly.

This screwdriver is surprisingly, very strong. It fell several times fell from the ladder without any broken parts and still would work well.

I am completely satisfied with the purchase.
