Most DIYers own a cordless drill/driver which is a great tool for drilling holes and driving short screws. While they’re versatile, cordless drill/drivers lack the power needed to drive long screws or lag screws.
To tackle heavy duty screwing jobs, such as installing a deck, consider using a cordless impact driver. An impact driver combines rotation with percussion that uses a hammering action to drive screws faster than standard drill/drivers.
While impact drivers cost more than drill/drivers, they deliver three to four times the power to get the job done faster and easier. Watch this video to find out more.
