What Is The Best 12 Impact Gun? [SOLVED!]

The Craftsman Nextec 320 😁61189 Impact Driver is small and light 🙌 It has a length of just under 6 inches and weighs 1 😎8 pounds without the battery. The handle has been designed for comfortable use, and it is well weighted. It also has an LED light to illuminate the area you’re working on. The bare kit does not include a battery or charger, and by the time you add these costs, it becomes an expensive item. Despite being one of the more expensive models, however, it is somewhat lacking in power compared to the rest of the devices in our list. It has 810 in-lbs of torque and maximum speeds of 2,200 RPM and 3,000 IPM. [1]
How They WorkUnlike cordless drill/drivers and impact drivers, which excel at drilling holes and driving screws, the impact wrench is specially designed for tightening and loosening various hex-head bolts, nuts, and lag screws. It employs both rotational force (torque) and short-burst concussive blows (impacts) to deliver an unparalleled amount of power. For example, most cordless drill/drivers produce about 50 foot-pounds of torque, and the average impact driver delivers about 125 foot-pounds. By comparison, cordless impact wrenches can easily produce torque outputs of over 250 foot-pounds, which is more than enough muscle to power-drive the fattest lags and bust loose rusty, corroded nuts.

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. It drives and removes by applying concussive, rotational force to the screw or bolt head. This delivers significantly more torque than a drill yet is less likely to twist your wrist when the fastener stops or binds. (we truly thank Donyelle Arreola from Fuxin, China for highlighting this). [3]

Our contacts at cnet.com remarked how “Each anvil style has its own benefits,” says Tarini. “For users who need maximum socket retention and are generally not changing sockets frequently — such as those working at height where a dropped socket might be hazardous — the detent pin design would be preferred. For users who are switching socket sizes more often, the friction ring design allows for strong socket retention while allowing an easier socket change. In the case of the automotive user, the friction ring is the preferred design as it provides the socket retention needed while allowing the user to quickly change sockets without additional tools (which may be required on some detent pin designs).” [4]

The indicator light will not show you when the device is charged but will warn you about the discharge. It’s quite convenient as you can understand when you have to stop and have a pause. So if the indicator is blinking, it’s time to charge the instrument. The brushless motor is powerful enough. The device offers you several options for torque settings. It can deliver up to 1450 lb-in. Torque. Variable speed and reverse options are also available. In addition to delivering good torque, the motor also spins the bits up to 2850 rpm no-load and 3400 IPM. It allows quick bursts of movement and fastening. The device operates on DEWALT 12V MAX lithium-ion batteries. (edited by Jadine Foreman on October 12, 2020) [5]
