Unusally good for the price
by Lorenz Prem on 03-02-2014 3:08 am

This week I am taking closer look at theBostitch BTC440 cordless driver, the companion of the BTC400LBcordless drill/driver I have reviewed a couple of weeks ago.

It was inevitable that the Bostitch BTC400LBwould find its way into our shop. The promise of a well-pricedpower tool sold at Walmart that also offers good performance wastoo good to pass up. Destined to be a high volume item I feel thatI can help a lot of people by reviewing the BTC400LB. Let's take alook, if this drill/driver is the great deal it is supposed to be,or if the marketing got ahead of the tool's performance.

Recent Reviews
"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
