Wiha MaxxTor bits are made for today's high performance powered screwdrivers and in particular cordless impact drivers. Standard and normal torsion bits aren't man enough to cope with the forces involved when impact screwdriving. MaxxTor bits have a special torsion zone optimised and adapted for each drive. These bits were independently tested and found to last three times the life of a standard bit and double the life of other high performance impact bits. These are ideal for permanent impact use, designed and proven. 1/4" hex drive (C6.3) and available 29mm or 49mm long.

Maxxtor 49ersAfter breaking many bits in my recently purchased Hitachi 18v impact driver I thought I would spend a little extra on some "professional" bits. I purchased a set of 5 bits thinking these would last quite some time. I am not a tradesman but an experienced diy-er so don't use these every day and after researching I plumped for these (Pz 2). After about six screws the first one broke - I was using 3 inch no.10 wood screw in softwood. Over the next few weeks and not many screws - all used in a similar way I went through the lot. Very disappointed and no joy from Axminster. It was even suggested by the staff at the Warrington branch that I shouldn't be using them in an impact driver and couldn't do anything for me suggesting that I contact Wiha themselves. I gave up trying to talk to them and went away frustrated and disheartened. At the time of writing I am contacting Wiha. So, certainly not worth the money and the reputation of Axminster and Wiha leaves a lot to be desired. Very disappointed and recommend DO NOT BUY.
