Bosch PS41-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Impact Driver Review
This new Bosch PS41-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Impact Driver gives all the precision which comes with a variable speed of 0-2,600 RPM, and features a light body with a short head length. Powerful and compact, it packs a mean punch and has 930 inches per pound of torque.
This impact driver handles easily in tight and narrow spaces, and its triple mounted LEDs assist invaluably in low-light settings. Included with the impact driver are two lithium-ion 12-volt Max batteries, a quick30-minute charger, and a sturdy carrying case.
- a compact, shorter head length, small enough for reaching into narrow areas and the tightest of corners,
- a light weight construction, which makes it great for continuous overhead-work,
- 930 inch/lbs of torque,
- 2,600 RPM for faster drilling,
- a bright yet low power drain light, featuring 3 LEDs, giving you the light to illuminate your working area,
- An LED fuel gauge, for easier battery checking to allow continuity in long jobs.
Who is it for?
The impact driver would be an invaluable asset for anyone wanting to set a few screws, or work all day without over straining arms or wrist. It would be especially useful for some-one with less strength than your average builder because of its light weight construction and ergonomic gripping handle.
Pros and cons
The new Bosch PS41-2A Impact Driver has a compact body, with a head length of 5.4 inches, allowing access to tight areas, narrow corners and awkward overhead work. As well as its reduced size, the driver weighs only 2 pounds, meaning it is great for those continuous, overhead applications and long periods of use without over straining the wrists.
An LED battery power gauge allows you to see how much power is left. A fully ergonomic, soft hand grip allows long lasting comfort with superior control for extended periods, while side bumpers on the tool help protect work surfaces and prevent slipping. It is fully backed by the manufacturer with a one-year warranty.
The much improved cluster of LED headlights is better than those of previous models. The smaller body will fit into places the other drills just won’t reach. The ergonomic grip is definitely a plus and allows strain free use for longer periods.
The Bosch PS41-2A comes standard with two batteries and a quick charger. The Bosch PS41-2A Impact Driver has a slight lag when depressing the trigger. That said it is a great trigger for fine work on precision jobs.
The soft padded case doesn’t appear as strong as a harder plastic case used by many of the opposition tools.
Why should you buy it?
Firstly, Bosch PS41-2A Driver has more power for size than most similar models and will drive deck or floor screws easily, and wall screws in tight places as long as you want. It is very easy on your wrist, rugged and powerful for its size and is a very handy driver. The package includes two batteries and numerous accessories to make your every task a simpler one.
If you’re seeking a powerful yet compact driver which is solid and durable, this Bosch comes highly recommended. Bosch PS41-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Impact Driver is ultra-lightweight, packs a deceptive amount of power and will reach places a lot of similar machines won’t.
