  60. Charles Opperman says:

    Deck project.

  61. chad sellers says:

    Impact drivers have become my new favorite tool anytime I need to put a screw into anything. It is much lighter than conventional drills, has more screwing power, and yet has the touch to sink a screw lightly for things such as drywall. If I were to win this tool, I would give it to my father, who just wont spend the money on something he doesnt view as necessary. Im convinced he would use and abuse one more than he realizes.

  62. AndrewSurges says:

    I would like to give this impact driver to my dad. He loves to do work all around the house. He has a lot of tools but not an impact driver. I think he would love this
