Impact tools use an internal hammering mechanism to generate additional force when drilling holes, driving or removing screws and wrenching or unfastening bolts. Each of these tasks has an appropriate tool: an impact drill, impact driver or impact wrench. If you’re a busy professional tradesperson or keen on DIY, you’ll want the right tool for the job.
What Is the Purpose of Impact Drivers?
Impact drivers secure and remove screws. With lots of power and torque in their light, compact design, they can drive large screws into different surfaces in seconds or create holes like a drill. Their main advantage is the extra power generated by their hammering action. If you regularly use a screwdriver in your work, a high-powered impact driver could save you a vast amount of time and labour.
What are Impact Wrenches Used For?
These tools use a hammering action to create impact when tightening or loosening nuts, bolts, screws or other fastenings. Impact wrenches are even more heavy-duty than impact drivers, with greater torque. Choose an impact driver for building with wood, changing tyres, laying flooring and decking or installing plywood subflooring.
