Unhappy benchmark twister

the button that changes from 'forward' to 'reverse' is in the wrong place. in trying to hold onto the twister one can inadvertently touch this 'red' button and than the twister will not work. This is a design flaw. The device works well, it has a lot of torque as indicated.

I agree, Montana. I have one and use it quite a bit...but that little red button is annoying. I think the designers tried for ergonomic convenience but missed the mark.

I had the same issues guys . Dewalt has some products that connect to your drill that look like a redesigned effort for this application. I may buy them also , as the Twister could be better .
Hey one good thing , you can’t twist your arm off with the Twister ,as it’s so weak

Works like a hot damn. I have absolutely no complaints about its construction or quality; really skookum, eh.
Just for safety's sake I pull the battery pack off when I'm not using it.
Does everything it says it does. Well.
How do you pull the battery out of the Benchmark Twistor?

I'm back. The battery pack just inserts straight into the base of the handle; it'll only go in one way. It has locking tabs that prevent it from being removed until you squeeze the release tabs on the sides of the pack.
