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.
If you have ever attempted to put a 4" polymer-coated exterior screw into pressure treated wood, over your head, with a drill, and barely got partially in before it started to strip... you understand what we are talking about.
Other things to consider in a heavy duty driver are the size, weight, balance, and battery charge time. These comfort and convenience features can make a big difference, especially on heavy duty jobs.
