Shopping Alert - Compact Driver

Tomas Perez

Bosch PS21-2A

I own a BMW R1200RT that has plenty of body panels that are fastened by Torx screws. I had been looking for a small cordless driver so that I can make the 30 minute job into a 10 minute job. At this time I haven't removed any of the panels so I haven't tested this driver yet.

This is from the Lowe's web site:

  • Powerful for tougher applications with 265 in-lbs. of max torque
  • Compact design - shortest head length and shortest height in class
  • LED light- enables use of tool in low light or dark areas
  • Lightest weight in class - great for overhead or continuous work
  • 2-speeds - 0-350/0-1300 RPM so speed of tool can be matched to the application
  • 20 + 1 clutch settings for precise torque adjustment
  • Forward/reverse button - equally useful at driving or removing screws
  • 1/4" hex drive - for quick bit changes
  • Provantage tool and battery protection plan - 3-year tool protection plan, 2-year free battery replacement guarantee, 1-call resolution hotline

Case, charger, 2 batteries and the driver
The driver is on sale for $79.00 at Lowe's until 12/31/2012. The product number is PS21-2A. This is the updated driver which is much improved over the old one so make sure you get the right one. There is also a larger impact driver for about $99 but that is not what I really wanted. I wanted the smallest driver (not impact type) that had a clutch so that I could control the torque being applied for both removal and driving. By the way I do not intend to use the driver to torque any of the motorcycle panel screws except perhaps to one of the lowest torque settings. I will do the actual tightening by hand as always.

I can't rate this tool since I haven't used it yet but it looks like a 10 so far and it's at a very good price right now. Amazon has this driver for $104 right now.
