    I use a Ryobi impact driver with the 3/8 square drive adapter.

    The beauty of the Ryobi stuff besides the price being right, is they did something that makes common sense, and everybody else screws you over. The old Ni Cad batteries and tools are forwards and backwards compatible. New batteries fit in old tools, old ni cad batteries fit in new tools. The new chargers can charge either battery.
    Ryobi makes Craftsman and Ridgid cordless stuff.

    Default DeWalt

    I have the DeWalt I think it is the 14v and I like it a lot. Just bought the snap on 7.2 a month ago cause it was on special on the truck and I don't like it that much it is smaller and lighter should be in 1/4 drive instead of 3/8

    After years of use with Millwakie, I bought Makita lithium. Hate to say it but there is no comparison. Makita wins...

    I use the 3/8 snap on everyday . I think it's 7 volts or something but when the battery runs out I switch it out with the 14 volt out of the 1/2 inch impact spins it way faster.

    I have DeWalt and Makita 18 volt impacts, they both have held up much better than the Ridgid, Craftsman or Ryobi. Have used DeWalt and Makita drills/screw guns for 30 + years in commercial construction and they have held up best overall. Snap-on are great but imho too much $$$ for a construction environment .... Milwaukee too friggen heavy

    Unless things have changed in the last few years, Ridgid, Ryobi and Milwaukee are all owned by a Chinese Company ......... TTI (Techtronic Industries) who also make a lot of the Craftsman cordless tools LINK Are Rigid and Ryobi Tool made by the same company? Who?

    my 2 cents

    That's is pretty much dead on. If you use it daily in construction, the Dewalt and Makita has the market covered. Nothing else is close. I figure the average day at work goes thru 4-5 battery charges a day on either the impact or 3/8 drill motors. But if you aren't using them to that extent, the Ryobi is hard to beat for the price.

    I've used the Ryobi, Ridgid stuff over the years ... Ryobi makes a copy of a Bosch belt sander that can be set on it's top upside down, pretty cool. I just didn't like the idea of buying tools made by a company reportedly started and owned by a retired Chinese army general, true or not ???

    I like my Stanley-Bostitch owned American made (I think) DeWalt the best ....

    I don't know how much truth there is in that, but you're talking about Ryobi, Milwaukee, AEG, Dirt Devil, Hoover, and Homelite. Not counting names made by those companies like Craftsman and Ridgid among others.

    I've had my Ryobi stuff longer than a lot of guy I know had their high-dollar stuff, and worked it just as hard. I used my 1/2" drill and sawzall most.Used my little skillsaw a lot too.

    I use my snap on 3/8 14.4v every day all day. Have been using it for the 4-5 years. Still as strong as the day I bought it. Batteries are a little weak now but other than that works great. They also make the new lithium snap on 3/8 impact. It's really strong but also pretty pricy.
