      What type of end would the drill attach to ? Would a battery impact work ? They may have more torque.

        BD1, the other drivers are simply chucking a piece of re rod with a 90* bend in it. This job doesnt required much torque. I currently wind mine up with three fingers on my right hand. Easy enough job, just trying to get away from the painful joints that can result.
        Who do you call when the lawmakers ignore the law?

            Got it. I went back to reread your post. I wasn't thinking of winding up the straps unloaded for storage. I was thinking of using the drill to start to take the slack out of strap and starting to tighten the strap on the load prior to really securing for transport.

                While I did ask about drills, the information about other tools made by the same company is also valuable.

                  Best tools myself and my co-workers use are Milwaukee. Hammer drills, grinders, sawzall, batt drill, multi-tools and the shop radio. We have a makita that's used every now and then and it's good too. They just seem to have a really good set of standards for their equipment. Just my $.2!!!

                    I would buy a Metabo, they come with 4 amp batteries with the option of buying 5 amp batteries for them.

                      As a HVAC/Steel guy for 25 years I've had them all and truly the best by far is the M18 Milwaukee Fuel, the batteries last a good amount of time and the tools are powerful. I will be posting vids and pics of my Milwaukee and Miller equipment on twitter @cvmechanical.

                        +1 on the makitas

                        every sparky, plumber, hvac ect guy I have ever met has one. Lxt 18V kit
                        try and find one on sale though. $$$ but still the best bang for your buck.
                        I use my set for carpentry related tasks. Charges fast and lasts a decent amount of time.
                        Not a fan of Milwaukees anything except the good ol' holehawg. Can't beat those beasts
