First Impact driver dead after 6 weekends of use...
My old impact driver died after over 2yrs of use most weekends (purchased from Masters as they shutdown), so I needed a new one quick. Jon & Jonno's just published that they had the Matrix range so I went in and purchased a couple of skins, 2 large batteries and charge. The skins I got were the impact driver and the grinder (review that next). The impact driver was used every weekend as I built a number of chicken coops and I would be driving up to 85mm timber hex drive screws as I built the structures, which was nothing I hadn't done with t...he old impact driver... But after 6 weekends it just died - appears to be the brushes in the motor and I contacted the importer and they will send me some replacement brushes at my request. I have purchased another of the same impact driver skin so I can continue fitting out the chicken and other animal shelters on my property. So I hold out hope that this was a once off and I will update the review once I open the first driver to see if it was infact the brushes that have failed.
Purchased in February 2019 for $69.00.

Great Value for Money
Matrix products seem to be a white labeled product. You'll find different brands and colour, but with same shape. If matrix dies out you should be able to order other branded batteries and they should fit since they are made from the same factory.
What is pictured in this website is actually the Impact Driver Wrench, not the drill.
Overall, a great product for a great price.
Handles heavy workloads easily. Lightweight and compact but packs a real punch. Easy to use, easy to change bits and has always performed 100% - far better than my previous drill. Battery seems to last forever and multi colored LED tells me charge left or when to re-charge. I'm very happy with this product.
