Drill versus Impact Drivers

Drill versus Impact Drivers

The cordless drill/driver is by far the most popular portable power tool of all time, and it’s not going to lose that title anytime soon. However, cordless drills are beginning to lose ground to a relatively new type of cordless tool, the impact driver.

That’s got DIYers everywhere asking questions:

  • What’s the difference between a drill/driver and an impact driver?
  • How does an impact driver work?
  • And if I own a drill/driver, why would I need an impact driver?
