When I first saw the Metabo HPT brand I just figured it was yet another brand-name enter into the fray. I was surprised that this is actually a new name that Hitachi is now marketing under in the United States. (They operate under yet a different name in Europe, but the whole story is too much to get into here.) So my expectations were raised when I figured this out, as Hitachi is generally known for good equipment.


This is a pretty good impact driver. It has a brushless motor that puts out 1522 inch/lbs of torque. Brushless motors are the best way to go generally, but they do cost a bit more.


Ergonomics are generally good, as it has a nice solid feel in hand. One con is that the forward/reverse switch is mounted in a way that makes it a little too easy to hit during operation, which may irritate some people. It does have a single LED light which is good, but on impact drivers I have come to expect two or three lights nowadays.


A nice thing about this tool is that it seems to be a bit quieter in operation than a lot of other impact drivers. I guess quieter is always better, right?


So, overall, I think this a pretty decent tool. Good power, nice feel, good build quality and moderate sound levels. Worth considering.
