Compact Cordless Hammer Drills?

I don't have room for an air system in my one car garage so my only option is a cordless hammer drill. I have come to a point that I can't do work on my car with an impact/hammer wrench.

Anyone had any luck with anything such as this, it looks compact enough to get into tough spots and it is affordable at $100.

You can't go wrong with Bosch tools.I own their 18 volt lithium system (every tool except the new jigsaw) and their complete 12 volt lithium system ( every tool except the flash light). I am a self employed handyman and use my tools on a daily basis.And to be honest I use the 12 volt drill the most.

If your looking for an impact drill to do the work of say an 1/2" drive impact air wrench like the one's that are used to remove lug nuts then this isn't the right tool for you. When you say you want it because you don't have room for an air compressor ,that's why I assumed as much. They do make electric impact wrenches that will do this type of work. Work your looking at is more for construction type work to drive screws.


Edit: I also noticed that the one you've shown doesn't come with the battery or charger. That's not a very good price in that case.

Ah, thanks for the advice. I do intend to use it for lugs and other bolts that I can't get leverage on with hand tools, such as my caliper bolts. Those things are stubborn and I need to do a rotor swap.

I bought the 8AMP Craftman plug in Torque Wrench and it has no issues breaking the 140# lug nuts on the Camaro. All of the cordless ones failed to break the lugs so I ended up with this one. Dewalt also has a nice one.
