BPM stands for "blows per minute". This is the number of screws that will be driven into a surface in 60 seconds. This is also another factor that should not be taken lightly. The higher the number of blows the better; this will determine the time that you will take to cover a particular area either drilling holes or screwing. The recommended capacity of blows is 2500 and above.
The most important thing to consider when it comes to choosing a powerful impact driver is its torque. To put it simply, torque is the strength and power of your power tool. Torque is measured in pounds-per-inch or in.-lbs. This is the pressure (in pounds) that your impact motor puts out per inch. So, if you're looking for a powerful impact, look for one with the highest in.-lbs. of torque. There are quite a few construction tool manufacturers that make them with high torque, including brands like Bosch, Ridgid, Makita, and DeWalt. I would consider any impact drill with 1400 or more in.-lbs. of torque as heavy duty.
Yes, you can put up wall board with an impact driver. In fact, the low weight and small size make it easy to wield and less tiring, too. Be careful not to become too carried away! Some impact drivers are too hard to regulate with a light press. If you think you would possibly have that issue simply grab a drywall screw adapter and go to town.
Anyway, the point is that by using a nut-driver attachment, or with a socket adapter and socket set, you'll be able to quickly finish any nut-wrenching jobs with minimal effort.
Driving lag bolts is where these tools show off their strength. A cordless drill simply does not have the power to set long lags while not killing the batteries. You will still want to drill a pilot hole to prevent the wood from cracking, but luckily you already have the tool for that job, too...
