Klein Multi-Bit Power Driver - Review
Klein has a very distinctive style of screwdriver. It has a reversible shaft and at each end fits a reversible bit. Also, the hex ends (which are different sizes) can be used as nut drivers. Its a clever way to have multiple driver tips at quick disposal. We were happy to see that they've also released something called the Multi-Bit Power Driver. It's an accessory that takes that same concept and puts it on the end of your drill or impact driver. They have two sizes available; one holds five different drivers and the other six.
Klein was nice enough to send us a sample of each to check out and we pretty impressed with them. There's not a whole lot to say, really. They're easy to use, convenient, and, according to Klein, rated for impact guns.
The smaller version has: #2 Philips, #2 Robertson, 3/16 slotted, 1/4 and 3/8 hex.
The larger version has: #2 Philips, #2 Roberston, 3/16 slotted, 1/4, 5/16 and 9/16 hex.
The larger one is chunkier to accommodate the 9/16 driver. In both cases, the #2 Philips is a lone bit, so it can be easily replaced as it's likely to be the most used. The Robertson and slotted are proprietary double headed bits, so it'll be a drag to replace them, which is the only downside to this set (and we don't think it's all that significant).
The power drivers are about $20 each which strikes us as a little high, but they're made in the USA, so there's that. Replacement double headed bits are $10 for a 3 pack.
