What’s the difference between a drill and an impact driver?

Since an impact driver mechanism repeats a cycle of the anvil driving the rotation of the chuck, it loses efficiency. Drills apply a constant force to the chuck, driving the fastener without stopping or pulsing. As a result, impact drivers, while giving you more torque, tend to drive fasteners a little more slowly.

Is an impact driver better than a drill?

The main advantage of impact drivers is their ability to drive in numerous fasteners quickly. The added force offered by the tool saves your hands and wrists as you work. This can help extend the time you can comfortably work on your project. Also, the impact driver is much less likely to strip your screws when in use.
