I used a Milwaukee when we put the steel frame barn up and was very impressed. Compact and powerful but heavy. I'd go for a DeWalt if I got my own, but thats mainly cos I wouldn't use it that much and I already have a load of batteries. They are a lot cheaper body only.

I've got a Kobe (cromwell tools) wrench. It's a few years old and the battery's don't really hold the charge they should, but it's got my suspension stripped down on my truck okay and seems at home with Taptite's which I use a fair bit. I'm sure that many of the newer ones will do a pretty good job for you. Look at the battery specs

I've gone for the sealy one. We use some of their stuff at work at it seems fairly good!

It was in the sale too! If it's crap I'll just send it back

Most (if not all) dedicated impact drivers I've seen have either a 3/8" or 1/2" square post to mount a socket.

I have an impact driver/drill (DeWalt) that has a regular chuck, but the impact part of it is nothing like a true impact driver.

There are impact drivers (not a drill) and impact wrenches different but similar

Driver has a hex bit holder wrench the square post
