The screwdriver equivalent of a hot knife through butterMy experience with electric screwdrivers until now has been a tiny Bosch Ixo, 3.6V rechargeable driver. It has been fine for many lighter tasks, but after several years, the battery is getting weaker, and though I actually know how to replace it (the Ixo uses an integrated type 18650 battery), when I was using 50mm screws to go through MDF and pine when laying an elevated loft floor, it simply wasn't up to the task.

Great tool for the priceI bought this from Axminster and the service was very good. You can't buy this tool in NZ (or anything like it) so I was very pleased that Axminster ship to NZ for a a reasonable price - I think. I got it delivered in about 5 days which is great as far as I am concerned. Very good communications and prompt quotes for postage etc.. The tool itself is of good quality apart from the front silver plastic section which is not made of the same quality plastic as the main body. (I think this is to copy the heavier versions which use alloy in that area.) The cable and plug are of good quality. The tool is light and I decided to move away from battery powered impact drivers since the cost to replace the battery systems is high and the 9 year old Lithium Ion stuff I have needs to be replaced. Would be good if Makita (or anyone) did something like this with a brush-less motor and possibly variable toque / self tapping setting i.e. some of the features of the battery operated models.

Will not use a drill driver for screwing again . The only down side is the length of the power cable . Gone through over 800 screws and the makita td0101f as not miss a beat many more srcews to go

Nice bit of kit, just the jobI am currently plasterboarding a decent sized area of loft ceiling, a job I have done with a drill / screwdriver bit in the past. Give the weight of the drill, and the awkwardness of the area being boarded out, this job was becoming awkward.

UpdateMay I be permitted to add to my previous review. I fixed the ply sheets to my floor using nearly 400 x 4 mm screws which was effortless & of course, no battery charging throughout. Since then,I have used it for countless jobs, including screwing masonry bolts into a piece of Portland stone. I cannot praise this tool enough.
