As 10.8s go this latest offering from Metabo is a bit on the chunky side. The grip is like that of a larger machine with all the usual rubber overmould, all rather necessary for an impact driver.
FeaturesThere's only one speed setting in either forward or reverse although the trigger allows you to creep up to full revs in both directions. The quick release bit holder takes standard 6mm hex bits and there's an LED light located between the trigger and front metal casing. The PowerImpact comes with two 1.5Ah Li-Ion batteries that
require only 40 minutes to charge. Unlike other Metabo kit there's no power level indicator which I've found to be a useful feature on other models.
