An impact driver is one of those tools people think they’ll never need, but can’t figure out how they lived without one after taking one home for the first time. The impact driver can be used as a drill to screw/unscrew screws and drill holes, but it has a lot more power so if you’re working with thick hardwoods or very dense materials, it can step up to the plate when your regular drill strikes out. With an impact driver, when the bit meets enough resistance, it doesn’t quit like a simple drill will. Instead, it engages its impact mechanism which acts as though the screw has been grabbed with a wrench which is then pounded (or impacted) with a hammer, to provide the extra power to drive that bad boy home. It’s great for removing old rusted bolts or screws that are stuck and won’t come loose. The additional power an impact driver provides is becoming more popular than ever, so get started by checking out the selection I have provided here.
