Editor's Notes

March 03, 2019:

Nut drivers make it easier to quickly screw and unscrew nuts than using a wrench that constantly needs to be removed and re-positioned. They can also be used in tight places where wrenches would be too unwieldy. Whatever your reason for wanting one, we identified a good selection of sets, so there will definitely be an option to fit your needs. It you are a professional contractor, or anybody else that plans on using these tools on a daily basis for high-torque applications, we recommend you consider the Klein Tools 631, Ares 70028, Irwin Tools Performance Series 7-Piece, and DeWalt DWPVTDRV. All of these can withstand a lot of force and won't let you down on the job. The Klein Tools 631 and Irwin Tools Performance Series 7-Piece include self-contained tools, whereas the other two will require you to connect the bits to a drill or manual driver handle. If you just want something affordable for periodic use, the GreatNeck ND72 or Tekton 2938 will do nicely. The GearWrench 8916 and DeWalt DWMT73808 are good options for somebody who doesn't want a bunch of separate fixed-head tools, but also doesn't currently have anything to attach bits to, since they come with the driver and a bunch of interchangeable heads.
