I've been looking for a small compact cordless screwdriver for ages. Main
application is flat pack assembly, but other jobs as well where access is
Most of the ones I've seen have internal batteries - no good to me, I can't
be doing with that.
Ended up with the Makita TD020DSE, which is a 7.2v Lithium-Ion jobby with
two batteries. Interestingly, its also an impact screwdriver.
I'm a big Makita fan anyway, but this thing is bloody brilliant. Punches
well above its weight.
Torque of 17Nm, but none of this is fed back because of the impact action.
Higher torque than even the Metabo (which was outside my price range).
Good video on the Lawsons site
't buy mine from there despite the 1200 free screws deal, paid £41 inc
postage on E Bay.
Had it for a week, used it on four jobs already. Fence panel, shelving,
flat pack & a loft ladder. So small & light, slips into the 'ruler' pocket
on the overalls - very handy on a ladder.
For a change the case is actually useful, space for charger, spare battery,
driver bits etc.
Well impressed with it, love the LED job light.
