I don't notice any difference with general screws, unless they are say 100mm or bigger, in which case an impact does have the edge

Try a regular driver verses an impact fella when firing a screw in above your head or in places where pushing on the driver is difficult, THEN tell us there is no point, eh Woods?

i have just asked about this subject and seen this topic :oops:

after reading your replys and opnion's i want to ask; if an impact works on little knocks while screwing and if that is correct then surely putting a regular 18v on hammer and screwing should be the same or have a similar effect??

it maybe a stupid theory , that's what i thought tho. :confused:

the impact starts as quick as a normal drill on highspeed and as the load increases it slows down and turns more into a rotary impact so slower speed but greater power

hammer action is nothing like impact as one is rotary [circular] and the other is back and forth

there is no comparason its like comparing a lada sprint with a formula 1 ;)
