Re: Impact Driver


OK, so my new 18v Hitachi impact driver shows up today.
Ew-we-ew-la-la!!!!!!!! WOW! I can't believe this thing. It will actually drive a 3" screw into a 4x4 with only the weight of the driver. I backed the same screw out and tried it at least five more times--because I couldn't believe it.

The last deck I did it took about 14 hours to screw down the decking--my wrist took a week to recover. This driver will probably add years to my arm.

Thanks for all the good recommendations!!!

You drive 1/2" lags with a cordless impact?? I had 42 3/8" lags on my last ledger and 24 lags on the posts there is no way I would try that with my cordless impact. I have a corded 1/2" impact that drives them in a few seconds and will pull that lag and washer all the way through the wood if I let it.

Absolutely! They go in like a hot knife through butter. My cordless impact was my first impact driver and I didn't see any sense in going out and buying a corded one.
