So you have already engineered a deck, but now you've got to disassemble the old deck before you rebuild. There's not much worse than 15 year old rusty looking screws that are buried in wood. You'll be able to tell in a glance that they don't want to turn. And you know from experience that a drill will end up stripping half of them, if you are lucky.
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.
Also, don't forget to check out the BPM or IPM. It stands for blows-per-minute or impacts-per-minute. This is the maximum amount of blows or impacts the driver puts out. It's definitely something important to consider in this construction tool. The higher the BPM/IPM the faster you can drive screws or drill holes. 2500 or more BPM/IPM is a good amount for a heavy duty impact driver.
