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 all a standard impact driver can, plus can reach into 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 drill/driver, but is more powerful. The collet chuck requires ¼” hex drill bits, which are typically disliked by those who work with keyless chucks. These tools are too powerful for simple tasks, like driving a screw into drywall. While noisier than hammer drill/drivers, right-angle impact drivers can handle tough jobs while eliminating torque on your wrist or arm.
