Impact Drivers vs. Drills
A drill is a home toolbox essential for almost any DIY project or home repair, but depending on the project, an impact driver may be more useful. At a glance, the two tools may seem similar as they sit on a store shelf, and there are indeed some similarities. Impact drivers and drill drivers both come in corded and cordless models, offer a reverse direction setting to make releasing fasteners easier, and you can tackle a range of jobs by purchasing the right bits to use with the tool.
However, these tools are not interchangeable. This guide will walk you through the important differences between impact drivers and drills so that you can make a sound investment depending on the type of tasks you need to accomplish.
Tip: If you're planning to use these tools for a one-time project, consider tool rental. Rent tools and trucks for any project at The Home Depot.
