As a cabinetmaker and carpenter, I preferred the Bosch tools. They performed with the best of the more affordable kits yet are the smallest of the lot. The impact driver is especially tiny, allowing it to fit easily in a tool belt or shop apron. The driver also has three LEDs and a battery indicator. The drill sports a locking chuck. The only drawbacks to the Bosch tools are the fatter handles that come with stick-style batteries, and a chuck on the driver that requires you to slide a sleeve forward to change bits.
