Ridgid Stealth Force Pulse Driver

RIDGID’s NEW STEALTH FORCE™ Brushless 18-Volt 3-Speed Pulse Driver

DeWalt claims this driver is up to twice as fast as standard impact drivers with half the noise.  Having tried the tool out, I would agree. It also transmitted far less impact to my grip than other impact drivers I've used.

This driver is compact, fits nicely in the hand and is well balanced.  My test for a tool like this is to drive in a three-inch long, quarter-inch diameter lag screw with no pre-drilling or pilot hole -- a task the Stealth Force handled without flinching. 

The tool comes as a kit with two Hyper Lithium-Ion batteries, a charger and soft-sided carrying case.  Three LED lights built into the front of the housing provide bright, shadow-free illumination in low light situations.
