This probably doesn't mean jack squat, but I've only got one Husky tool in my entire garage.... and it snapped under heavy load. It's a 3/8" drive torx socket (T45 I think) and I was using a long 3/8" wrench (not an impact). However I will say that the warranty exchange was reasonably painless.

Save your money guys. Just garbage, just your average run of the mill Husky garbage.
Thanks, almost bit but I have more than enough screwdrivers already and don't need to add any junk!

That does look good. How does this compare to the top-end Wera? Do the spare bits rattle around?

BTW, here's the link for anyone else looking:

I haven't tried the Wera actually. And that's not the Husky I'm talking about, it's this one: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-12-in-1-Quick-load-Ratcheting-Screwdriver-with-6-Driver-Blades-in-Handle-99515/303693577


If you mean rattle around in the handle, no they do not. They're just held in the handle by friction. It'll be interesting to see if that wears out, but it's a strong hold for now.

Very low quality.

Even though it's not a "deal" the Husky ratcheting multi-bit for $12.88 is a much better buy. It's probably the best ratcheting screwdriver I've tried, and I've tried quite a few.

Edit: this one https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky.../303693577
It indeed is appealing. Six double-ended bits = 12 different tips which is > 4 tips for the posted SD. I went ahead and ordered two of the muti-bit version. Thanks.

How high does one need the quality? I personally find changeable bits better even if stored in the handle. The 12 in 1 another poster referenced would do most simple jobs and the shank is still skinny since the bits are long and will get into most places/items. I find the cheap 4 in 1 non ratcheting I grab a lot for simple things.

You want quality with thumb and finger fast advancement then go with a pro tool company like snap-on, matco etc. the price is hard to justify. https://shop.snapon.com/product/Ratcheting-Screwdriver-Sets/8-pc-Ratcheting-Soft-Grip-Screwdriver-Set/SGDMRC103A The less modular driver that was the norm before this I still have and use daily with over 15 years of use no issues.

As far as torx, I bought a long shank hex bit ser that I use with my drill/driver as many of those screws are in deep recesses and usually long.

I love my Overdrivers. The ability to speed screws in & out makes it a real timesaver over other ratcheting screwdrivers.

Saw these in the store last time. They seemed pretty low quality and I decided I didn't need another couple of gimmicky screwdrivers, even for 5 bucks.
Husky is generally not a cheap brand. This tool also likely qualifies for Husky's Lifetime warranty, so if it breaks you may return it for a replacement at any HD. I don't know many screw drivers that cost $1.25 that come with a lifetime warranty.

The Wera ratcheting screwdriver is kind of underwhelming (ratchet mechanism is not outstanding) but it does use it's brand bit holder which is very secure. The storage compartment in the Wera is solid and the bits fit snugly but come out in an ergonomic way.

The last set of screwdriver of my dad was all lost and he's looking for a new one. I think this would be good for him.

it is a good multi, I have one for home...but there are a lot better ones out there (stronger, lighter, more durable) like the snap on which is like $100 but is a BIFL

Most of Wera's stuff is overvalued. Out of the big German brands, Wera is very aggressive in marketing and style.

Ppl that buy them as tool trophies hype them.

Ppl that use Wera drivers usually don't care for them any more than any other brand. They are middle of the pack for me.
