Thank you Laura for reminding me to mention this...
it is a Makita 18 v - which also means nothing to me :)
and this is me right now holding mine so you can see how it would fit in your hand. It will always feel big if you are a small person - - but you will get use to it, and you can definitely control it.
So after all these years, this one gives me the most confidence, and looks like a storm trooper... also a plus.
