If you have other cordless tools, consider buying one that might use the same batteries. My only exposure to the cordless impacts was recently when I got to use a friend s Bosch and Milwaukee (both 12V) side by side. The Milwaukee was a much quicker driving 6” screws through a 4×4 into the 2x deck of my trailer….the Bosch was no slotch, though. I d be happy with either but if I lay down my own shekels, it will probably be the Milwaukee.

The only cordless thing I own is a 20+ year old Makita drill. I’m not brand loyal as of right now. Money is super tight right now, and I am starting out with almost nothing in the way of tools. I’m looking to buy mostly used to save some money, so I will have to jump on whatever is available. But I don’t want to end up buying something that isn’t powerful enough for what I will need it for. Hence the original question
