drill drivers and cordless screwdrivers

I

imigix

i am thinking about buying one of the above

i have seen the very small bosch screwdriver at about £40 advertised

and then at the other end of the scale units at £150

i suppose it will come down to power and the type of battery

do all drill drivers hammer the screw and does this improve performance

what can anyone suggest

no thats an impact driver a different beast altogether

driver--- puts in screws may or may not have an ajustable chuck
drill driver puts in screws and can drill

hammer drill ---can put in screws heavy drilling and masonery /light conctere with hammer

impact driver-- for medium to heavy screws 4 inch screws into oak like butter

in general corded arnt sutable for screwdriving because the electronics dont like the slow speed required

are you saying that a drill driver is just a drill without any form of hammer action

now does a impact driver have the same action as a hammer drill

if it does then i could just use the one i have

i thought perhaps incorrectly that a unit described has being suitable for screwdriving had some extra features

Absolute blasphemy Big-Al! All this mention of cordless drills and budget and the word 'Ryobi' has still not been spoken of!

I think for your needs the perfect combo you could have is this:

http://www.screwfix.com/prods/79355...-18-2-011-18V-Combi-Drill-Free-Impact-Driver#

Gone even cheaper now! So tempting I might buy one as a spare to keep in the boot of the car! :LOL:

yes your absolutly right :D :D ;)

i was trying to work out what was required but when all the bases are coverd for £90 no point ;)

i rate ryobi as diy light to medium tradzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

They've probably hammered the price to try & make an impact on the market.
