WOOD magazine review

Black & Decker 12-volt Impact Driver

Review Summary

At this price, we didn't expect to come away impressed. However, the BDID1202 easily drove sixteen 1/4 x 3-1/2" lag screws on a single battery charge when we installed heavy-duty shelf standards on my shop wall. Downside: the batteries (two included) take 3 to 6 hours to charge, so this isn't a tool for all-day jobs. It does come with a 15-piece bit-and-driver set, which makes it an even better value for occasional use.
