Impact wrenches primarily put additional muscle behind tightening or loosening nuts, bolts and other fasteners for heavy duty jobs, while impact drivers are especially handy when it’s necessary to use frequent force when driving in screws such as when building a new deck. Since the point of using an impact wrench or driver is to make a job easier, these powerful tools are relatively lightweight. They typically hover around three pounds and can be easily manipulated or positioned on a tool belt.
Some believe electric impact wrenches offer more power than cordless impact wrenches, since the power source is basically endless. This conversation often comes up with cordless impact drivers as well. But, many prefer cordless versions because of their portability and the absence of a cord that can get in the way. Ace carries both electric and cordless options so you can choose according to your preference.
An expert at your local Ace store can help guide you to the best tool to fit your needs. Meanwhile, for more information check out this article on how to purchase quality power tools.
