When they first came out years ago, impact drivers were very popular in Japan but it took a while for Americans to realize what a terrific advantage impact drivers have over an electric drill when it comes to driving long screws into wood, especially decking. American companies like Porter Cable caught on to the idea and started competing with impact drivers offered by overseas companies. The idea for impact drivers was born long ago with the inventions of (1) the impact wrench, used in every automotive garage, and (2) the hammer drill used to power masonry bits into concrete and other extremely hard materials.
ou're probably used to working with cordless screwdrivers around the house for your favorite DIY projects. That's great, but what if you run into a project that requires a bit more power than the tools you're using can provide? Or, what if you want a tool that can handle any DIY project? Well, in comes the impact driver.
The next thing you need to consider is the speed of the driver. The best combination is high torque and high maximum speed. Speed is measured in RPM or revolutions-per-minute. This is the amount of times your bit will spin around per minute. Look for an impact with a higher max RPM. This will help you drive those long screws through the hardest of materials at a faster rate. Any impact driver with 2200 or more RPM is considered fast.
