??electric impact drivers??

I use windy guns (air impact drivers) at work all the time. But I need one for home.

I've got a compressor at home that could be used for a windy gun but it's hassle getting it setup and it's not something I want to be doing for a quick job.

Has anyone ever used the electric ones?? Is it gunna be worth the 150??

Oh yeah!
Ease of use and pretty good Torque make them really useful...go best/ most expensive you can...My Sons like Milwaukee ...I get by with Makita.

Are impact drivers the same thing? They all have similar to drill chucks? Do does the 1/2" drive just tighten in as an attachment?

I use a couple of Hilti impact guns for work, a 110v mains powered that goes upto 500nm & a 14V LiOn that does about 200nm. Both have been abused beyond what's reasonable & still keep going. Not cheap though😳
