    Power to weight ratio is fantastic.I can put in cabinets all day and not get fatigued with this little impact. Drives 3.5" screws like nothing you have ever used.Light is another great feature. Battery life is exceptional.

    This is an AWESOME drill as are all of the reconditioned Hitachi 18v tools that I have bought on this site. I highly recommend this drill and if you buy anything anywhere besides RECON/SALES you are you are throwing away your hard earned $.

    This item is rated Grade C, but appears to be a new item and works great. This is my fifth purchase from ReconSales and everyone of the items have been in excellant condition with sometimes an extra item included. Do not pay retail whenever you can get one of their products.

    I'd previously purchased two reconditioned Hitachi products from you: a miter saw and 18V Lithium Ion Drill Kit. Both have been GREAT. So when I saw the Impact Driver become available, I had confidence it would be as just as good. And, as before, it, too, has become one of my favorite tools.

    This tool was rated in "C" condition and it was a little marred, but very acceptable. The tool works great and I've have no problems with it. It is VERY powerful.

    Grade C--case was scratched and there was some paint (minor) on the driver, batteries and charger. It works great! I would have scratched it and gotten paint on it the first time I used it anyway. I have used it quite a bit--just built a new house and did alot of the work myself. I am very pleased and would order again.

    Fabulous. One of the best tools I have. Long charge life. Works at full speed until the moment of discharge. Quick recharge. Drives 3 inch wood screws through 3 inches of wood without a problem. Grade C is like brand new (except for the prior owner's initials on the driver!). No dislikes.

    The impact driver has plenty of power and is very compact and lighweight, well balanced. I was expecting the driver to have some scratches, but I didn't anticipate the batteries looking used, that's the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. Works very well so far.

    This thing works GREAT! Not that I've had many jobs to do in the short time I've had it, but each time I had to break it out, it worked like a champ! Understand tho, that Grade C looks like a used product because it is a refurbished used product :) ! However, rest assured that it doesn't affect anything aside from your perception of it! The price was simply too good to pass this one by!

    I received the impact driver quickly and in excellent condition. There are only minor scratches. I've only used it once, but it appears to be in excellent condition. A good deal all around. I'd buy from Big Sky Tool again.

    The tool is very light. Grade C was not bad at all. Using the tool, don't pull the trigger all the way to activate the impact effect; doing so will just make the thing spin too fast and mess-up the screw. Using the variable speed function, you can find the sweet spot that activates the impact effect and drives the screw nicely. At least that's how mine worked. My other impact driver, a 12V nicad hitachi, worked fine by just squeezing the trigger all the way. Until learned to back off, I messed up a lot of screws and a couple of driver bits. I don't know if this "issue" is the quirk that got my tool returned in the first place or whether it's an actual defect. I've decided to keep it; pulling the trigger 3/4 vs. all the way, the tool works fine. Nice feel, nice weight, nice price.

    This is my 3rd reconditioned product I have purchased and it is fantastic! All the reconditioned products run and look like new. The only issue I ever had was that my first impact driver used NiCd batteries and one did not last very long, but other than that, no complaints.

    This driver very light and easy to use. It won't remove lug nuts but it will drive 3" deck screws so fast it will amaze you. Doesn't strip out the head like drill drivers are prone to do. Hitachi tools are high quality and built to last, I'm amassing quite a collection.

    I'm very satisfied with the product, so far. I was suprised with the good condition of a Grade C product. It has the power I was looking for & the size is great. I was also suprised with the upgraded case, it's a better product than from previous cases. I'm planning on using it next summer to totally rebuild a very large deck that has been neglected & falling apart. We'll see if it can stand the test.
