– Review Paraphrased for size –
When adding the Makita Impact Driver to your tool collection, since it is so small in size, you are able to tuck it in your toolbox to carry with you each time that you take your toolbox to a job. The toolbox will not have to have a large amount of space in order to carry this tool with you which is ideal since most toolboxes will be filled with the bigger tools.
