DEWALT Multi-Bit Ratcheting Screwdriver: Avoid

admin Monday September 5, 2016

When I got my hands on the DEWALT Ratcheting Screwdriver, it took me 5 minutes to tell whether I would use it as a multi-bit screwdriver. The weird mountable rack it came with made me wonder if it could store all of its bits inside the handle. After I decided to try it, I opened the package and put the bits in the internal bit storage. After putting 1 or 2 bits, I struggled to put the next in place. At first, I thought there must have been a manufacturing defect. But after trying more slots and bits, and considering the mountable rack, I started to smell a design error.

And indeed, the online reviews are poor. This review of a variant of mine says it all. Visibly, Dewalt didn't intend to have internal storage initially and rushed a broken solution. Or, it tried to patch its faulty internal storage with the mountable rack.

In any case, if you are looking for a multi-bit screwdriver, do the world a favor and do not encourage DEWALT by buying its ratcheting screwdriver.
