Smaller Drivers. When subcompact cordless tools have enough power for the job, they offer a significant size and weight advantage. Hitachi's KC10DFL subcompact combo kit contains a drill/driver and an impact driver. The drill/driver has a 3/8-inch chuck and clutch settings for up to 195 inch-pounds of torque. The impact driver provides up to 840 inch-pounds; its standard 1/4-inch hex bit holder fits a variety of common driver bits and hex shank drill bits. The kit includes two 12-volt lithium-ion batteries, a charger, and a kit bag. It costs about $170. Hitachi, 800/829-4752.
