Product Description

3.6-Volt Cordless Screwdriver Makes Repairs Easy

For times that you just don't feel like working that hard - or when a regular screwdriver can't quite squeeze in to a hard-to-reach place - there's the Craftsman Evolv 3.6-volt ni-cd cordless screwdriver. Operating at 200 rpm, it generates the torque to handle most household tasks. The Evolv makes quick work of anything that involves tightening or removing hardware. Its LED light lets you see what's going on in dimly lit corners, and its angle makes those spots a little easier to reach. The screwdriver switches easily between forward and reverse.

This 3.6-volt cordless screwdriver is a great gift for a time-pressed handyman or for a young adult out on his or her own for the first time who needs a few basics but not necessarily a complete tool box. Keep one on hand for yourself as well.

  • The Craftsman Evolv 3.6-volt ni-cd cordless screwdriver set comes with the screwdriver, charger and manual
  • The integrated nickel cadmium battery charges in three to five hours
  • Add a Craftsman Power Driving Set, which includes an array of extra bits, to ensure that you have the tools to do most any job
  • The Evolv uses quarter-inch hex bits
  • bits not included

The Evolv 17088 Ni-Cd Cordless Screwdriver is easy to use.

The Evolv 17088 3.6-volt Ni-Cd Cordless Screwdriver makes a great gift. It makes using a screwdriver easy and possible for many of those that would otherwise need to find a handyman. There is even a soft handle that makes holding it comfortable.

The screwdriver has a LED that shines on the work area. A rechargeable battery (3 to 5 hours for a full charge) makes this cordless screwdriver very easy to use to both install and remove screws.

Never again will I use a manual screwdriver when such an easy option is available.

The Evolv cordless driver is almost as slow as doing it by hand.
I purchased this mainly to make taking face plate screws off a little quicker, as I do this many times at my job and holding a regular cordless gets heavy after doing over 40 per apt. breakdown for painting. I charged this drill up before first use: The forward would only work certain times; the drill feels comfortable but sounds cheap; when forward did work it revolved so slow I might as well just do it by hand. I took it back and did not get another one.

Very Handy for Simple Tasks

Its 3.6 volt, so dont expect it to drive woods screws through seasoned wood. But, its small size and light weight is great for smaller jobs, like hanging a ceiling fan, or replaceing a light switch. The handy headlight feature is a plus.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

small jobs

I like this handy little drill for small jobs around the house. Things that done require more heavy duty power, like hanging pictures, fixing a drawer and such.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Totally useless tool

This screwdriver has no torque. It cannot drive screws in drywall even after charging it for 24 hours.

Handy and convenient

I bring this cordless screwdriver around with great convenience. I use to have little small jobs here and there. Now I don't need to look for plug and power, especially when I was above the ceiling.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

small light cordless screwdriver

provides good torque. direction switch is on the top part of the handle and shift from one direction to another is not smooth and takes time. considering price, this is decent cordless screwdriver for light home use.
