I have listed out the most suitable impact drivers that you can buy under 100$. So please go through this process. It will make it easy to buy an impact driver.

What Should You Know Before Buying an Impact Driver?

It is really important to know, what you should know before buying an impact driver. Impact drivers are available in the different price ranges. 100$ is the budget range that we can use. Before buy an impact driver, you should pay attention to the below facts.

Impact Driver Torque – Driving screws need high torque, but it is less than fasting a lug nut. Normally impact driver torque is measured by in-lbs. This is low value than impact wrenches. Impact wrenches torque is measured by Nm or ft-lbs. Torque can be varied according to the workpiece. So It is better to have a higher torque tool if you need to drive screws easily.

RPM of the Impact Driver – RPM is a revolution per minute. Normally, impact drivers have 1000-2000 RPM. But it can be changed according to the tool requirement. In high RPM, you have lower torque and in low RPM, you see higher torque.

Impact Rate of the Impact Driver (IPM) – Impact drivers have impact mechanism. It is measured by the impact rate. The impact rate is measured per minute. Higher impact rate is really good for driving fast.

Voltage and Battery of the Impact Driver – Most of the impact drivers are cordless. Because it is really user friendly than corded ones. So the battery is Li-Ion, and voltages can be 12V, 18V and 20V. But it can be more than that according to the tool requirement. Higher battery capacity tools can be long run rather than lower capacity.

Chuck Size of the Impact Driver – All impact drivers have 1/4″ chuck. So you should not worry about it. Choose a suitable impact driver bit according to the screw size.

Warranty of the Impact Driver – Normally, every tool provides a 3-month limited warranty. Its terms and conditions depend on the brand that we buy. So I recommend you to buy a tool before reading the warranty.

But mostly I like for home improvement projects. Home improvement and DIY projects are the most interesting things for me. More than that, the coolest things are power tools. Those are very precious and efficient than a decade ago. So I try to introduce so many things about power tools, woodworking, DIY projects, home improvement and many more interesting topics here.
