If screwdriving is your game, but a Drill Driver or Combi isn’t up to the job, you need an Impact Driver. The GID12 from GMC’s 12 V cordless range is sleek, compact and lightweight, and possesses a power-to-weight ratio that slams screws, nuts and fixings into their target destination with ease.
Featuring a variable speed trigger to aid user control, this GMC Impact Driver boasts maximum torque of 90 Nm, whilst the maximum speed without load is 2200 rpm. A tool with this amount of power is bound to provide some vibration and discomfort, but the soft-grip handle reduces these effects as well as providing a secure, comfortable grip which affords the user high accuracy and reduces fatigue during prolonged use.
For the safety conscious among you, an electric brake ceases bit rotation once pressure is removed from the trigger; reducing the risk of personal injury or damage to the tool, bit or workpiece.
The standard 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) hex bit holder accepts all bits of that fitting, with the quick-locking collar allowing speedy changes for convenience. This trait ensures that the GID12 is compatible with bits across any brand, as long as they have the 1/4 inch fitting. GMC recommends use with bespoke impact accessories over standard screwdriver bits, as they are usually more hardwearing and less liable to twisting or snapping.
This kit comes complete with 1 x 1.5 Ah Li-ion battery, an intelligent charger (which monitors temperature and regulates voltage for an efficient charge), 4 x nut drivers and a blow-moulded carry case for easy transportation and storage.
