I have had a 12v set (drill and impact driver) for many years and love them. The impact feature makes up for the lower torque of a 12v system and I find there is very little that the impact driver won’t run a screw into. I have learned, however, that the impact feature is too much for small screws. For those I will use the drill and adjust its clutch to keep from stripping them out or twisting them off. Each tool has its purpose and place. The 12v system is smaller and lighter and gets the job done for me. However, I don’t build decks or similar all day every day where an 18v or larger system would be better.
