    I was real happy with a "Metabo Power Max" (from The Woodworker's store) - two speeds with adjustable clutch; but, while I was on vacation, one of the techs 'borrowed' the tool and neglected to charge the two batteries .
    I haven't found replaceable batteries yet.

    Some of our techs have the Makita 12v, black and white colour on the outside. Those things is super light and powerfull enough. Anything lower than 12v for me is no good and it must be lithium batteries. I myslef uses porta cable 12v lithium and has been with them for three years now, same batteris and 5 days use every day. In the shop, that's where i am. like it there too.

    I don't carry it in my car currently, but use it at home!...probably one of the best lightweight and powerful drivers I've found!
