Quick review: I've got one of these (bought it CPO, from DTO) and love it. I combined it with the Wiha microbit adapter to use with standard size microdriver bits and use it for electronics. Battery lasts a long time but as you might expect not a lot of power. You can use it for putting together furniture and similar stuff as long as the holes are pre-drilled or have threads. Not recommended as a replacement for an 18v drill/driver. This isn't going to drive screws into wood very well if at all.

Here's the adapter I use -

Nope, I thought it was always free shipping turns out I just bought most of my tools from there around the holidays.

Helpful review, thanks. I find a little candlewax or bar soap scraped into a screw's threads makes a huge difference when sinking screws into wood without pilot holes. Even that has its limits, you're not going to build a deck with this sort of battery-driven driver.

I need one of these, my old B&D finally died after 20-30 years of sporadic use. I'd be happier if it was described as " manufacturer refurbished". I agree with someone else's comment--- what the hell does "Certified Pre-owned" mean? Because if all it means is that, yes, it used to be owned by someone else...how is that a plus?

Can't say for certain, but I remember reading a comment from someone that says only Home Depot is "allowed" to sell as new. I looked around and it seemed to be true. Everywhere else has to get creative with their titles, like "factory blemished". Not sure if that applies to the factory pre owned title, but figured I'd pass it on.

Thanks! CPO means it was either a warranty or store return and it went through the factory refurbishment process. They check everything out, replace any broken/worn parts and stamp it with a hot iron branding that says 'REFURB' into the plastic. The manual and any stock accessories (bits, blades, etc) are usually new and will be in a plastic bag in the box.

That may have been one of my comments, although plenty of others have made them too. You are 100% correct on they can't sell as 'new' due to HD contract and the fact that they are legally bound to comply since they are a wholly-owned subsidiary of TTI. As far as DTO goes, CPO and factory blemished are definitely two distinct categories where CPO is used and Factory Blem is new & sealed in retail packaging.

TU. If it had free shipping, I'd be in. The extra $7 kills it for me. Maybe if you need something else with it? The light is a deal too:

I just got a Ryobi Chaulk gun and it was sold as a blem yet I can see no reasons why. No refurb or blem marking.Oh well, shipping kills it for me..lol.
