Right-angle impact drivers are perfect for driving deep screws, working with dense materials or in any other situation that would typically put stress on your wrist. They can do anything a standard impact driver can do, but can get into much tighter spaces. The impact system only kicks in when necessary. If more torque is needed for a task, thousands of high-impact blows per minute take over.
Otherwise, a right-angle impact driver works just like a right-angle cordless drill/driver, but with more power. The collet chuck requires ¼” hex drill bits, which fans of keyless chucks tend to dislike. These tools are too powerful for simple tasks (like driving a screw into drywall), and while noisier than hammer drill/drivers, can handle tough jobs while eliminating torque on your wrist or arm.
