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.
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.
Another tip: for those of you without a regular floor jack, speed up the tiny scissors-jack that comes with the automobile and use the cordless impact driver rather than the tiny lug wrench.
Driving lag bolts is where these tools show off their strength. A cordless drill simply does not have the power to set long lags while not killing the batteries. You will still want to drill a pilot hole to prevent the wood from cracking, but luckily you already have the tool for that job, too...
The last thing that you want to take home with you is a driver that will be too slow. Driving the screws through objects at a slow pace would really waste your time and you will have to postpone some work to further dates. Thus it is imperative to consider the speed of the driver. This is normally calculated in RPM i.e. (Revolutions per Minute). The driver should be able to spin faster, thereby releasing the screws at a faster rate. This will save you time as you will do a lot of work in a short while. A good combination that will make the impact driver be termed as the best would be the one that has got power and speed. An RPM of 2200 and above is recommended for those who are in quest of the best drivers in the market. Hey! Don't forget about the power also.
