When You Should Buy a Combo Drill/Driver and Impact Driver Kit
As with almost anything, it is up for the user to decide. However, there are special circumstances when it may be wise to buy a drill driver and impact driver kit. This situation is mostly when you need to drill and then fasten screws at the same time. It can be counterproductive to use the same power tool for drilling and fastening screws or bolts at the same time. This is because you have to remove and replace the drill bit frequently. Even if the unit is retrofitted with a keyless chuck, the time it takes to replace drill bits quickly add up over the span of a workday. Bottom line, you are much more productive when using a drill driver combo.
To recap, the drill driver is a beast when it comes to drilling material. Similarly, the impact driver is designed specifically for fastening screws or bolts quickly and easily. The shank of an impact driver is hex-shaped so that it can sustain more torque from the spindle.
Another instance where it is better to buy a combo kit is when you want to save. Indeed, purchasing an impact driver and a drill driver separately is costlier than getting both as a kit model. You can make some significant savings this way. The best drill driver combo contains both a drill driver and an impact driver made by a reputable manufacturer. You get the guarantee that those power tools are dependable and will last a long time.
Throughout this drill driver review, we have seen that manufacturers usually help consumers by packaging their products as a drill driver combo kit. Indeed, purchasing this combo kit is more value for money in the long run than going with a drill driver and impact driver individually. They are more versatile, and it will help boost your productivity many fold. There is also a model for every budget, user-type, and need. However, if you have still not found the best drill driver combo for your need, we recommend that you go through this drill driver review one more time.
