TOOLGUYD.COM TRIES OUT THE NEW GOLD STANDARD IN IMPACT DRIVING

Impact GOLD gets high marks for fitment, durability, and more

Stuart at ToolGuyd recently tried out the new Impact GOLD™ insert bits and bit holders, and he liked what he saw. 

He was impressed with the bit engineering and geometry, including the superior fitment and the torsion section that is engineered to prevent bit damage by flexing slightly under load during high-torque applications. He also liked the ultra-magnetic bit holder, remarking that "retains fasteners better than any other magnetic bit holder I have ever tried before." 

 
After trying out the bits with an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Impact Driver, he concluded that Impact GOLD™ fit fasteners better and last longer when compared to "standard" impact screwdriver bits. He even liked the case that comes with the 21-piece sets (model B-31893). Go here to read the entire review:  http://toolguyd.com/makita-impact-gold-screwdriver-bit-set-review/
 
The New Gold Standard in Impact Driving
Impact GOLD™, a new line of insert bits, bit holders, double-ended power bits, nutsetters, sockets, and socket adapters designed exclusively for high-torque impact drivers.
 
"Insert bits are clearly lagging behind the increased fastening power of high torque impact drivers, and the result is more broken bits and more wasted time for contractors," said Brandon Stover, Makita Product Manager, Accessories. "Makita has delivered a solution with new technology that revolutionizes fastening applications with up to 10-times longer bit life and superior fitment to prevent ’cam-out’ and stripped screws. Impact GOLD™ is the new gold standard in impact driving."
