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.
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.
Make certain you've got an impact-rated socket or you may break it and be looking for a new socket set before you know it.
