Question on Impact Drivers


Had purchased the Bosch PS41 for $99 on sale, but I found a Dewalt DCF885 for $140. Should I keep my 12V Bosch, or return it and go with the 20V Dewalt? The Bosch is unopened and able to be returned.

I love every dewalt tool I own. 12 volt is old school, 20 volt is new school. Love the lithium ion batteries and impact drivers

  • If you already have any Bosh or DeWalt tools that take the same battery then I'd pick that one
  • If the DeWalt comes with 2 batteries, that would be hard to resist
