Does the handle comfortable?
This is the first and foremost thing that you should look at before selecting an impact driver to buy. As you have to work holding the handle all time, this should be comfortable to hold all day long. Most of the handles have a foam made or rubber made layout to feel comfortable. Therefore, check the layout before you decide one to buy for your working purpose.
Your selected driver should be handling by one hand. All standard drivers provide the user one-hand driving to driving a long screwdriver or creating holes. For that reason, try the machine and try it one hand driving is possible or not. Do not take those driver machines those come with longer body for double hand driving.
Appropriate Size and Shape
The size and shape of the impact driver should be appropriate to your body and hands. Every person’s body language and structure is not same, therefore, the machine also comes with different sizes and shapes. For that reason, you should choose the machine that is appropriate for your size and shape. Take the impact driver on your hand, feel and try to work with this; if you feel comfortable with the size and shape of the handle, purchase this.
Reverse Switch-Present or Absent?
Every impact driver must have a reverse switch in order to remove a long screw from wall. Moreover, the reverse switch helps you to avoid any jam problem during drilling. Although maximum machines have a forward and a reserve switch to ensure full facility, you may buy the wrong one. For that reason, select the only driver that has reverse switch to remove a long screw whenever you want.
Is housing stable and strong?
When you are working on drilling on a concrete wall, you will need to force the machine heavily. For that reason, make sure the body structure is stable and enough strong to take the load. The more an impact driver feels stable and stronger, the more it is good to buy. Never try to buy the low weight plastic body driver machines because they may not take the rotation forcing load.
Is there any light facility?
While buying a drive machine, you must know whether it comes with an LED light or not. Many of you do not consider built-in LED light as a major part of the impact driver. The LED light enables you to watch, whether you are drilling the long screw drives into the right place or not. Normal lights will not show you the inside situation while drilling at all.
Cordless or with Corded
There are two types of driver machine, one is cordless and another is with cord. However, the cordless is the most suitable and preferable in the recent days. If you choose the corded machine that connects electricity during work, you may not work at the time of load-shedding. Moreover, cord always limits the space of drilling on the wall or any other surface. For that reason, prefer to choose the impact driver that comes with no cord.
Brand or Non-brand
This factor comes when you know the above characteristic of a product. Now it comes to the brand because there are many well known brands of driver drivers. For that reason, choose one or two top brands for the drilling drivers and match the above features.
