With the holiday shopping season looming large, two WORX tool gifts stand out. The compact, new WORX Forcedriver applies serious torque to drive or remove stubborn screws, nuts, and bolts, while the WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder ends fastener fumbling.

Sometimes, screws, especially large ones, seize up when driven into hard material, and nuts and bolts become corroded and refuse to budge.  These problems can be compounded when fasteners are hard to access.  The new WORX Forcedriver 8V Impact Driver has all the muscle and special features needed to meet these challenges.
