$130 for an 18v DeWalt with 2 lithium battery packs?

Were you holding them at gunpoint when you got it? All seriousness aside, that was one heckuva deal! Well done!

I have to agree on the cordless impact drill... get one with Li-Ion if you can.

So you substituted a gift card for the gun. Even that is still a pretty good deal!

Looks like the consensus is the 18v Dewalt. Thanks all,

John

Be careful, there are several versions of an 18-volt Dewalt drill. They vary widely in price and power. Probably don't need the $259 one, but probably don't want the cheapest one that Lowes (or where ever) has either. I have 2 Dewalt drills and the old one is much more powerful than my newer one that came in a 4-tool kit. So if I'm doing something that requires more power I will grab the old one. The new one will do the jacks, but I prefer the old one.

I love both of my DeWalt impact drivers. Got one a few years ago when you bought a tool kit you could mail in and get one free. I figured they were a joke, but they are awesome. As much as a cordless drill made driving a screw easier, the impact driver made it that much easier again. I then bought another impact driver so my wife and I could both have one to use and it had a light on it. The new one has more beats per minute, but the older one I think has stronger beats. DeWalt publishes the BPM, but not sure on the strength other than feel of wrist. The old one will break bolts a lot quicker than the new one.

The great thing about the impact driver is there is no twisting of your wrist or arms. Truly an impressive little tool. Just not to be used for RV leveling jacks.:lizard:

Why not on the levelers? Too much "oomph"?
