Heres an update on my Nextec set from Craftsmen, almost three years in and thousands of screws driven and I'm still pleased as can be. I have mostly been driving 2.5" and 3" deck screws and this impact driver has no problem. I did nearly overheat it once and had to let it rest for a while. That said I would call this a homeowners tool as it is not up to daily torture tests of a contractor. The battery just does not last long enough. The charger can keep up and charges faster than I drain the other battery most of the time. I am about to replace a battery that is failing. Probably from the time I nearly overheated it building a deck. I had 5 batteries in rotation that day.
