The first time I picked up an impact driver, a 12-volt Makita, I thought it looked, to me, like a toy. I then tried it out by driving a 3-inch deck screw into a 4" x 4" piece of fir. I was amazed as I watched (and felt) the tiny machine effortlessly drive the screw home, sinking the head below the surface of the wood. I had to remember to keep a lot of hand pressure against the tool so that the screw driver bit did not pop out of the screw head and strip it. From that moment forward, I have never been without one of these amazing machines at my side.
Over the years, these drivers have been improved to the point of near perfection and this includes the batteries that power them. Battery size has grown from 9.6 volts to 18 volts and more. More than that, battery life has been greatly extended from what it was with the advent of Lithium Ion technology and subsequent improvements on that. In fact, a significant part of the cost of any impact driver, whether it comes from Makita Tools, Bosch or DeWalt is the battery or batteries that come with it.
Driving screws, of course! This is why most people get an impact driver to begin with. Quick speed, high power, no cam out, easy to handle... should we continue? Of course, you will now have to worry about tearing the heads off of some of the weaker screws. It's a small price to pay!
The DEWALT DC825KA 18v impact driver comes with a dependable one hour charger, two 18v XRP batteries, and a heavy-duty kit box for additional security and convenience. The tool is also backed by DEWALT's good name, their one year free service contract, and a three year factory warranty on the tool.
If they're too tight or rusted or otherwise stuck, use a breaker bar to knock em loose, then move over to your powered impact driver to make short work of the rest. Then grease everything up, and screw them right back on.
