Best Uses For Drill Drivers
Both Drill Drivers and Hammer Drills offer solutions for a wide range of applications. Most drills are equipped with a 2-speed gear box and a clutch that disengages the tool when a specific torque is reached. Drill drivers excel at drilling holes and for applications that require more precise torque or head seating (depth that the fastener is driven into the material). In certain applications, they can be used for precise surface preparation. Cordless drills are an excellent choice for quick projects around the home, and for larger projects in the shop or on the jobsite.
Best Uses For Impact Drivers
Unlike drills that are ideal for precision drilling applications, impact drivers excel in applications that require higher torque. This includes driving lag bolts or long screws, and driving high quantities of fasteners. They can excel at driving small screws too, since the impact action minimizes bit slip out of the head. In some cases you may use an impact driver for drilling and other hole making applications, but you must use ¼" hex shank impact rated accessories built to withstand the torque. One of the primary benefits of impact drivers when compared to drill drivers is that they exert less force on the user, and are often lighter weight, making them easier to work with for longer periods of time.
Drill vs Impact Driver Comparison
While the drill driver is an excellent choice for many drill and driving applications, the impact driver excels in speed and ease of use. The increased torque and rotational impacts makes it easier to drive screws and lessens fatigue on the user.
How Does A Hammer Drill
Compare To An Impact Driver?
A hammer drill features a 'hammer mode' which excels well in masonry drilling and breaking up concrete or rock. This is due to the impact that is applied in a linear motion with the drill bit. Think of how a hammer strikes a nail. That functionality allows the tool to power through brick, concrete, stone, marble and other tough materials. The hammer function can be turned off leaving the user with a traditional drill driver. Unlike the hammer drill, an impact driver has rotational impact offering higher torque. A customer can expect to pay more for the feature rich abilities of a hammer drill versus a traditional drill driver.
Should I Buy A Brushed Or Brushless Tool?
Should I Buy A Brushed
Or Brushless Tool?
In addition to application and tool type, another consideration is whether to buy a brushed or brushless tool. This feature refers to the mechanical makeup of the motor and the lifetime expectancy of the tool. Brushed tools are often less expensive, but can have performance limitations due to the brushes in their motors which have to be replaced over time. Brushless tools do not require any replacements in their motor, and are often more efficient with better performance. If purchasing for occasional use around the house, consider a brushed tool. If purchasing for everyday, professional, or jobsite use – consider a brushless tool.
