The gear case and inner cover are constructed out of aluminum to add durability and increase tool life. A plastic cover keeps the gear case from being scratched or damaged during extreme use. The 24.6 foot power cord is unusually long to allow movement without the hassle of relocating to different power outlets. This tool is compatible with the LOX Bit System which provides 8 points of contact between the bit and the screw. The system requires less downward force from the user to maintain torque and contact, minimizing fatigue and reducing bit slippage.
