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

  • Available for Gift Wrap

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.

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.

Battery Screwdriver

Replacement for Dremel screw driver which died after many years of use. This unit not powerful enough to drive a screw into wood.

Evolv is perfect!

This is the way to go if you want a fantastic product for a reasonable price. This was actually purchased for my young son as a present but I am strongly considering purchasing one for myself!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good screwdriver but does not last long

I use this screwdriver in my job to service flat panel tvs. This includes removing the back panel screws on the tv, and internal boards and reinstalling both. My only complaint is that It barely lasts long enough to work on 2 tvs before having to recharge.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cordless screwdriver good for average use

I don't trust Ni-Cd batteries too much due to memory issues and worrying about over charging, but the screwdriver in it's new state did work fine after charging for a few hours. Note that this cordless screwdriver does not come with any bits so you'll have to get those separately.

packs just the punch you need

This screwgun is perfect for the professional who needs to save time removing faceplates, wall jacks and that sort of thing, as well as a myriad of other uses. Designed for quick interchangeability with just about any kind of bit for maximum versatility. Power is a bit scarce, not a surprise for a unit of this type, but charge lasts a long time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ok

This is a good tool so far, great for small projects, which is what I wanted it for. Not enough power to medium to large jobs, but that is not what it is made for. Seems to hold a charge for a descent amount of time!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
