[Amazon.ca] Amazon ATL Bosch GDX18V-1800CB25 Impact Wrench/Driver $244.99

Not as hot as the deal a month ago with atlas machinery but many orders like mine at atlas got cancelled due to no inventory. This is all time low on amazon.

Great impact as it accepts both 1/4" bits and 1/2" sockets without the need for an adapter.

Very tempted.
But still can't decide between:
this + drill
or
driver+drill combo from another brand (~ $250 on sale) + some socket adapters

Looks like the latter will be less cost.
With the help of RFD, I've saved more than $1000!!!! (Buy spending $10000+)

is there a reason why you want to have a drill? couldn't you use this impact driver instead? socket adapter all break pretty fast on impact drivers. look at this project farm video where he compares some:

You're right - for most jobs the impact will work out just fine (and more power) , but the biggest reason is for tight spaces work - especially at 90 degree angles - Check out "Chris Fix" on Youtube, his latest Christmas video, where he shows this exact point. Its a godsend for that reason alone.

Edit: I misspoke - Was speaking to a "Ratchet" vs Drill. My Bad - information is still helpful however.. :)

I'm no expert at all. What I heard is that you can not do refined drilling using a impact driver, due to it "impacts". Fence/deck should be fine, but no kitchen cabinets/furniture.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Ah yeah i was confused and I went looking for his video. cuz usually a impact driver is more compact than normal drills. :P

Price matched at Home depot for convenience. No extra 10% off though, but I added cashback for 1%.
