The Low Down on Impact Drivers
Compact drills are a requirement for all Do-It-Yourself home owners and they are probably the handiest power tool to have around for everyday repairs. For tougher jobs, where a compact drill just won’t cut it, you may need the services of an impact driver. With the power of a hammer coupled with that of a drill driver, impact drivers are excellent investments when the toughest jobs require the use of maximum torque.
The Main Advantageous of Impact Drivers
First an impact driver reduces the prep work as there is no need to make pilot holes, which dramatically cuts down on the wear and tear placed on the operator. Second, impact drivers are faster and more efficient than your standard compact drill. Third the impact driver packs more muscle than a drill taking the most uncooperative bolts and screws to task. Bolts you never thought you would be able to dislodge will be loosened with an impact driver.
