There are different tools that we can use during a home improvement project and when it comes to driving screws, we should consider using an impact driver. This tool can help to lead our project into sweet victory. Often screw driving is a rather discouraging and tedious task. With a poorly designed screwdriver, we could be forced to struggle to muster enough torque by twisting our arm harder. An impact driver will make our job much easier to complete. It is stronger and faster that typical power drill and some of the more powerful models could pack an impressive 1,300 in/lbs torque.
When choosing an impact driver, we should choose a model that’s designed for extra durability. One big advantage of using an impact driver is that despite its power and brawn, it is still precise enough to tighten or loosen screws without stripping the heads. It is definitely the time to say goodbye to those inefficient and inadequate tools. Brilliantly engineered impact drivers should bring significant change to homeowners who regularly improve their property.
We should choose a model that is known for its authoritative punch and all the features. As an example, a good impact driver model could have all-metal transmission, durable magnesium gear case and frameless motor. These features should significant extend durability and overall life. A good impact driver should be comfortable to use and compact. A lightweight design should allow us to operate the drive in tight area and reduce fatigue.
A good model should be equipped with anti-slip comfort grip for enhanced control and deliver more than 1,200 in/lbs of torque for acceptable applications. Such a power could deliver serious driving power and the heavy-duty impact can reduce kickback and transfer power to fasteners. Impact drivers should be able to operate at more than 2,200 rpm. It should have removable batteries and dependable charger. A good model should include a heavy-duty kit box for extra convenience and security. A model must be backed by the brand’s good name and buyers should get at least two years of factory warranty.
There are also cordless impact drivers that we should consider to have, especially those that pack a wallop as well as innovative features. As an example, an impact driver with built-in LED light is useful if we regularly work at darker areas. This should allow us to better illuminate tight, dark spaces. To improve the durability and life of the tool, it should be equipped with anvil and hammer that are manufactured from heat-hardened steel. The highly convenient electric brake should help to minimize kickback.
Some models could have exclusive charging system that fully optimizes battery life. Because an impact driver can be used near endlessly during specific phase of home improvement project, it is a good idea to choose a model that’s equipped with 30-minute rapid charging feature, so the impact driver could be used again after we finish eating lunch.
