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.
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 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.
