Are Cordless Impact Drivers Any Good? [SOLVED]

An impact driver, unlike a drill, has a spring-loaded, quick-release chuck that accepts 1⁄4-inch hex-shank driver bits 😉 This tool is designed to drive wood and sheet-metal screws, but it can also turn a bolt with help from an impact-rated socket 😉 Faster than a cordless drill, an impact driver’s compactness makes it easier to handle, especially in tight spots or when you’re standing on a ladder. The impact driver drives or removes the bolt head by using a concussive rotational force. The drill delivers considerably more torque, yet it is less likely that your wrist will be twisted when the fastener stops/binds. [1]
The Impact Wrench is designed to tighten and loosen various nuts and hex-head bolts. Lag screws. To deliver unrivalled power, it uses both torque (rotational force) and impact (short-burst concussive blows). The average cordless impact driver produces about 125 feet-pounds and most drill/drivers can produce 50 foot-pounds. For comparison, the torque output of cordless impact wrenches is easily over 250 foot-pounds. That’s enough to pull off heavy lags while also removing rusty or corroded nuts.

Based on an article that was just published expertreviews.co.uk, the downside is that impact drivers don’t come with an adjustable torque clutch like most drill drivers, so there’s every chance you could – and probably will – drive the screw too deep into the wood, especially if it’s a small screw. Manufacturers have begun to fit impact drivers with three-speed switches to allow them to go at a slower speed, and stop the screw from going too deep. Despite being equipped with a variable speed trigger, an impact driver’s gearing system is less subtle than that of a drill driver, so having a slower speed also lets you align the screw more accurately, which will prevent it from veering off at an angle.

Paul our friend pointed out to us that DeWalt offers a wide range of cordless and impact wrenches for the 20V Max line. There are also 12V Max options. If we’re having to choose, which would it be? It’s clear that the 1/2-inch Atomic mentioned earlier makes a compelling case. However, it’s the DCF894 that we turn to for all-around performance. It’s a solid mid-torque pick with 330 ft-lbs of fastening torque and 600 ft-lbs of breakaway along with 2000 RPM on the top end. The drive type you choose is either pin or hog ring. If you’re a fan of Tool Connect, you can get the same bones with the added tech as the DCF896. [4]

Jaqueline Hatcher, toolsreview.ukThe best way I can explain why an impact drill is so useful is to distinguish between specialized bits and generic ones. You need a combi drill to do both drilling and fastenings. You can choose from different speeds and modes, making them a versatile tool. SDS drills are best for those who need to drill into hard materials like brick. An impact driver can also be used if you need to drive fastenings or fix fixings into tough materials all day.

The Hart 20-Volt Cordless Impact Driver is a real workhorse, and it’s built for functionality as well as ease of use. Whether you’re a first-time impact driver user or looking for a quality new tool to invest in, this driver is just the right one to pick. With up to 1,700 inch-pounds of torque, you’ll have plenty of power for all kinds of projects. You can adjust the RPMs using a variable speed trigger. It ranges between 0 and 2,500. You’ll have control while you drill and drive, and the trigger offers nice precision. Quick-connect bits can be changed easily with the 1/4-inch quick connect chuck. Your bits can be stored in the storage compartment built into the driver. The’s integrated leading light work light provides better visibility. It illuminates your workspace, regardless of what the environment is. Jewel Cleveland updated this information on January 25, 2021. [6]
