Impact drivers will drive those concrete bolts into a base, with pre-drilled pilots holes, but a socket wrench will do that too, and very quietly, albeit not so quickly. Screwing in long screws or coachbolts is easy with an impact driver, but most other woodworking tasks can be achieved with a normal drill-driver, and that saves stress on the components/structure. As an essential precaution, always wear eye protection, especially with an impact driver. Even the so-called impact screwdriver bits can shatter under the pressure...a shard from a broken bit embedded itself in my face, 5mm from my right eye...hence the patch.

thinking about getting one of these to speed up my board changes ...
I have one of these:
https://www.bigredpowertools.co.uk/milwaukee-m18oneid2-0x

It is fantastically useful for drilling with the hex-shaft style of drill bits or the Armeg hole saws for 20mm & 25mm, and driving in big fixing screws or loosening most stuff.

But even on its lowest setting (which I almost always use) it can break small-medium sized stuff. It has a 'variable' speed trigger but it is hard to keep it from just hammering things down...

I hardly ever use the normal battery drill any more, though the 3-jaw chuck is more precise for drilling than the hex shaft drill bits and it has better speed control. So definitely get one, but just not for terminals m'kay?

Just to add: the Milwaukee power tools have clips for your belt but I just unscrew them as they get in the way for getting in to difficult places. Also if you do try hanging it off your belt then you just end up mooning folk!

Noooooo I have enough tools, but it does sound (or not) good, a surge impact driver, no I don't want one, can you get them cheaper, will try FFX they always seem to be the cheapest for tools, no stop it, I need a drink.

Hate those belt clips on Makita tools, but wish they were still in place every time I'm up a ladder.
