These powerful tools are very similar to cordless screwdrivers. They're about the same size, same weight and can be purchased for just about the same cost. The real difference is in the power.
The technology that allows them to do this is sometimes referred to as "hammer and anvil" meaning that, unlike the simple twisting action of an electric drill, the impact driver literally "pounds" the screwdriver bit around as if being repeatedly being hit by a hammer. This action gives these woodworking tools tremendous power that simply would not be possible if the same screwdriver bit were chucked up in an electric drill with the same size motor and battery. An additional advantage is that there are hex shank drill bits available so that your impact driver can double as a quick-change cordless drill thus becoming one of your most versatile woodworking tools.
Another instance where you might need a more powerful tool is at a mechanic's shop. The nuts and bolts that are used in vehicles are tightened considerably tighter than what the average human might be able to loosen by hand. As a result, mechanics often lean towards an impact driver for quick and easy removal of these nuts and bolts. Often times, if more power is needed that a cordless impact driver can provide, they'll move to tools that pack even more punch by using an air compressor.
