Drill vs. Hammer Drill vs. Impact Driver: What Drill Should I Buy

hey what’s up everybody and welcome back
to tools day my name is Kyle and I thought today we would talk about
arguably the most important or most common power tool so today we’re gonna talk about drills
and I think that’s because most importantly this is probably the most
common power tool that people are going to own but there’s always a little bit
of confusion about what drill they should have so I thought I’d do a video
about that now before we get going I want you to all know that these drills
were not picked because I love them they weren’t picked because somebody
sent them to me and I got to feature them they just were in my shop right now
and I wanted to grab a bunch of different types of drills so that I
could talk to you guys about the differences so you can make an informed
decision and I can let you know how I use them personally in my business now
make sure if you guys do enjoy the tools day you go ahead and think about hitting
that subscribe button down below so you can catch every weekly video that we do
along with some of the build series but let’s get into this in thinking about
this video and really you know people always asking me what tool should I buy
Kyle what drill should I get I always have to say I can’t tell you that you
have to think about your application and you have to think about what you’re
going to be doing daily and what makes sense for you the first drill I’m going
to talk about is strictly a drill driver now this is probably the most basic of
drills and this was the only one I could find in my shop that was just a drill
driver it didn’t have any hammer drill and it didn’t have any impacting
abilities typically a drill driver is going to be the most basic of drills you
can think about it like a screwdriver with power that’s basically all it does
is it turns in a rotational access and the nice feature about a power drill
obviously is you don’t have to manually do anything and it’s got a little bit of
smarter I guess in sides you can change the clutch which means it’s going to
basically clutch out and stop driving whatever you’re doing once it hits a
certain torque you can also change the speeds on it and you’ve got variable
speed in most of the triggers so you can slowly ramp up but really guys that is
it a drill driver is going to turn and it’s going to turn faster or slower
depending on what setting you have it in now the next drill we’re
talk about is a hammer drill and a hammer drill is gonna be basically the
same as a drill driver the only difference is it adds the option for
hammering your fastener or your drill bit so what that does is while it is
spinning it has a mechanism in here that is also driving an anvil inside that’s
adding that longitudinal force to your fastener or drill bit while you’re going
which is gonna allow you to get through a lot harder denser surfaces like
concrete masonry or brick however that does mean that you’re going to have a
trade-off which is typically weight size and cost so this is gonna cost more than
a standard drill driver next we’re gonna talk about an impact driver now these I
feel like as of you know the last five years have become just so prevalent and
they’re everywhere especially as a trades person if you don’t have one of
these you’re missing out an impact driver is going to be lighter weight
it’s going to be smaller it’s not gonna provide you with the same drilling
ability maybe as a standard drill but when you’re dealing with fasteners
screws large lags whatever it may be it drives a lot quicker with a lot less
effort to the user but the trade-off here is they’re usually quite loud and
they are pretty expensive for what they are additionally you do get some
vibration out of this tool because not only is it hammering like a hammer drill
but it’s also hammering on a rotational axis so you’re not only getting the
added benefit of like a hammer drill to get through hard surfaces or apply
torque to a fastener it’s also hammering rotational so you’re getting a couple about best budget cordless drill
extra features which there’s gonna allow you to get large fasteners in quick
without effort but it really adds a lot of vibration to your body which is never
any good now that is kind of the general idea on
what the difference is between those three really just categories of drills
and I know I kind of touched on some of the uses but for me specifically just to
give you an idea what I use them for maybe that will help you in determining
which one you should buy is with a drill I really only use this to make small
drill holes I don’t do a ton of large like hole saws like you got here on this
hammer drill this is gonna be something for smaller applications small screws I
use this a lot when I’m putting together face frames from my windows with the
Kreg jig just because it’s super small it’s super lightweight it has the
necessary power to do you know small tasks right so that’s that’s really all
I use this for hardly ever do I use a plain old drill driver why because I
just am usually out on the job site where I usually require something with a
little bit more power something that I want to just do things quicker faster
stronger and that’s where most of these heavy-duty application drills they come
with a hammer drill option now so I’m using this to do maybe I’m setting some
tap cons into some concrete whether we’re you know putting some splash board
up on a building foundation wall or just repetitive large drilling so we do a lot
of half-inch bolts and our trust to post connection if you guys don’t watch the
build series go check it out where you know I’m showcasing that process and
maybe it will make a ton more sense but just know that in general if you step up
to a hammer drill driver you’re gonna be gaining a lot more power and a lot more
torque and control over doing larger things a lot of these drills also are
coming out with basically an electric brake so when you’re doing large
drilling with either a hole saw or you’re going into really hard surfaces
like concrete that you’re gonna hit rebar they’re actually smart enough to
recognize that when you hit something they stop themselves automatically and
I’ll be honest if you guys have been in the trades or been doing this long
enough and you’ve got one of those old corded drills and they got a lot of
power but when you hit something you can just about break your arm
personally I’ve done it many times not my arm but just in general been scared
and probably banged up when something comes around so that’s kind of the cool
technology with these drills is they’re getting powerful and safer to use as we
progress but that’s that’s kind of a drill driver hammer drill that’s what we
use for me this this drill here which is an impact driver is on my tool belt
basically all the time why because I’m out on the site and I’m
always using screws driving just a ton of them and this provides me the ability
to have very precise control without a lot of effort and I’m outside where
noise is not typically a problem because if you’re inside doing a bathroom
remodel or a kitchen remodel and you’re just putting in fasteners even though
this gives you a lot of control it might be a little annoying to maybe the
person’s house you’re working in or just to you in general so this is something
that is great for me it might not be the best fit for everybody out there but
know that I feel like the impact driver has become the kind of
jack-of-all-trades drill that guys are going out and getting but don’t don’t
forget that there’s a benefit to using a hammer drill or a small drill driver if
all you’re doing is just putting in let’s say a quarter inch hole into some
wood before you put a large fastener in so just a quick recap before maybe we
get into some demos is drill driver small holes small screws quiet usually
the cheapest option out there if you’re gonna step into something more heavy
application-based as in the concrete or you just want that power and you don’t
care about sacrificing price or weight you’re gonna step up to one of these
hammer drill drivers that is just the premium drill out there and if you’re
doing large fasteners and you just want to get in get out and you don’t care
about the noise the vibration you just want speed and torque and precision
you’re gonna step up to an impact driver there you go that’s kind of the gist the
in a nutshell now let’s kind of go through some of these in a demo mode and
show you kind of the differences to help maybe educate you a little bit further
I’m making that decision so I thought for demo purposes what we
would do is kind of demo each of these categories of tools now remember I’m not
saying this Dewalt impact is the best impact and that this Bosch whatever this
little drill is is the best drill we’re just showing an application based
category I’m drilling and screwing with these three different types of drills to
kind of show you the differences so what I’m gonna do is I’ve got this bit here
that is also an impact rated bit so I can put it in and out of an impact which
is kind of the nice thing as these have gotten more popular brands are coming up
with more accessories for impacts so that allows a guy not to have to have a
drill you can just use your impact but let’s go ahead and make some drill holes
just with this drill with the hammer drill with the impact so you can kind of
see the differences and see what makes sense first we’ll do the little one now
I’ve got this on all of these are gonna be on their highest speed possible and
their drill setting on the drills so just so you know okay pretty darn fast
it’s only a quarter inch bit but you get the point let’s throw it on the hammer
drill see if we see much difference okay faster no doubt now the impact okay
faster yet probably now in my opinion what that means is that all of these are
very fast to me none of them would signify a reason to
out buy or go out and buy one versus the other for this application that being
said you could probably get away with a cheap drill driver if you’re screwing or
drilling a quarter inch bit hole into lumber
does that make sense I think so let’s go on now to a larger bit to see if that
gap between these spreads out so what I’ve got is a one inch nail strike so
what this is gonna do is it’s got an auger
Hiep which requires a lot more torque and power from the drill because this is
actually pulling the bit in while it’s spinning forcing it to go faster but
also requiring more energy from the drill so let’s start with the Bosch here
now remember it’s not about comparing the tools specifically but just the fact
that this is just a drill driver all right now I believe that that’s probably
not a fair comparison because this tool is way underrated than this tool what
I’m gonna do is actually drill through this lumber with this on the drill
setting and then for the comparison we’ll turn it to the hammer drill
setting to kind of show you the difference to see if you really need a
hammer drill so first we’re gonna go through with the drill now let’s turn
the hammer drill function on and you can kind of get a feel for what the
difference is so a lot more noisy more annoying and it does add vibration to
your arm while you’re doing it I don’t really see a huge difference in speed or
a reason to go out and buy a premium hammer drill versus just drilling
because the bit does a lot of the power powering through the material if the
drill has the power for it now where this is going to shine a hammer drill is
through really hard surfaces not like lumber so we’re gonna actually gonna
have to go outside to get some concrete I got some concrete blocks out in my lot
and we can drill through concrete to showcase the difference between just a
regular drill setting versus a hammer drill setting now we’ll go out and look
at that concrete application in just a second first I’m gonna go ahead and put
this on the impact driver just to get a feel for how it operates and I think
you’re gonna hear the noise from this it’s it’s a little bit much so not only is it loud but the way it
works is it’s not a continuous spin therefore it’s not putting that torque
to this thread on the end of this bit as quickly therefore it’s not going as fast
it needs to hit that bit every time with the hammer in order to drive it versus a
drill is just going to be a constant spin and it’s going to go through the
material a lot quicker and a lot quieter now let’s go ahead and go outside and
we’ll we’ll run some hammer drill bits with the hammer drill function versus a
non hammer drill function and see how it performs in a hard surface like concrete
now there’s really no reason to have an impact out here to showcase drilling
into concrete because you’re never gonna use an impact it just doesn’t work as
well so what I’m gonna do first is use this drill as a drill only and then I’ll
turn it over to the hammer drill function so you can really get a feel
for the difference so just into some concrete I got an SDS or a I got a
masonry bit on here and here we go okay so it is gonna do it but it’s going
to take some time now let’s go ahead and we’ll turn this on to the hammerdrill
function and I guess watch the difference so I’m not gonna say that this is gonna
save you like a million times over to do an SDS over a regular drill but it’s
gonna take a lot less effort from you as the user because the hammering in the
drill is actually gonna do the work versus you having to push down hard
without the hammer drill function now as far as the application of screwing goes
what I thought I’d do is I kind of do some small fasteners and some large
fasteners just so you can kind of gauge the difference now using this small
drill driver here the Bosch obviously it’s not gonna have the same amount of
power as this 18 volt hitachi is gonna have but just to show you that when
you’re doing some smaller fasteners that don’t take a lot of effort you can get
away with a small drill and you don’t have to have the most powerful big drill
out there so you know pretty easy pretty good you know you get a bigger drill
your step up into I don’t know let’s we step up into this Hitachi and clearly
we’re gonna probably have all the power in the world I mean I could have drove
that thing forever but what’s nice about a drill like this when you’re ingesting
screws is you’ve got these clutches here and so you can change the clutch setting
so that it clutches out before it actually I don’t know what I’m on the
things too powerful you kind of hear that so it’s really annoying it’s really loud
but you can see it basically set my fastener right down to the surface but
it’s not going anymore and you can if you want to overdrive it you’ve got the
ability to go ahead and add a little bit of power to the drill and keep going so
that’s kind of nice however it can be a little finicky and these drills can be
very fast and they’re they’re long they’re bulky if you’ve ever tried to
get a screw set it sometimes can be very challenging especially if you’re newer
to the trades and you don’t use this all the time
like I take for example my son you know he’s only 11 when he uses a drill like
this it’s very hard to be straight and not strip out your screw and that’s
something that we didn’t really talk about when I first started everything
was drills and I script more screw heads than I I’ve probably ever done with an
impact because there’s so much more controlled and I’ll show you exactly
what I mean so first off you can see the dimension of it it’s a lot smaller head
which means your balance is a lot easier to get right over your screw and control
it now when we so you’ll notice that in the sound you’ll hear this drive in like
a driver it’s just gonna go straight in but as soon as the drill senses that it
needs more torque that’s when it starts to engage that hammer mechanism and
that’s when that noise comes out the vibration comes up but that’s also where
I gain a lot of control when that starts happening
I don’t just keep drill driving in or I don’t just keep screwing in like this
guy I start to gain a little bit of control so maybe that makes sense it’s
kind of a hard thing to exactly deliver out here on a video but if you’ve used
one of these or if you’re looking for more control you’re gonna use something
like this now let’s go to a larger fastener where hopefully once again we
can kind of broaden the difference between these different types of drills
now I’m just gonna totally skip this little drill driver we’re just gonna go
ahead and put this Torx bit this is a t30 and I’m gonna use some of these gr
our SS bits are screws and these are I think three and a quarter but they’re a
quarter inch lag and I typically will use these when we’ve got some structural
connections that we’ve got to do but you know once again kind of look at the
difference in length of the the tool itself so you know that’s another really
big selling point of an impact driver is that the size of it just makes it more
comfortable to use and you’re gonna see that this drill still has tons of power
and the ability to to deliver it to this screw pretty effortlessly but you’ll
notice at the end when I finally hit that surface and it wants to start doing
something to go deeper watch what the drill does okay so you saw that right
you’ve seen as soon as the torque got to a point where you know I could have had
my two hands on this and holding it but it just doesn’t have that same I guess
level of comfort when it delivers that torque to the fastener like you’ll see
when I put the impact okay I need to change my bits okay here we go
so with the impact you’re gonna notice speed but you’re also going to notice
noise and a lot more control I can do this with one hand and effortless the
way it delivers that torque it’s definitely a trade-off you’re gonna have
noise you’re gonna have vibration and all those kind of negatives that kind of
transfer through your arm and can cause issues down the road but it has super
manageable power and it allows you to drive large fasteners effortless now I
have talked about this in the past and this is the surge from Milwaukee I
typically will use this or the makita oil impulse and this is not a you know
once again it’s not about sponsored by Milwaukee because they don’t sponsor me
however I bought this drill and I love it I’m gonna show you the difference in
what technology is bringing to the game and that’s with the hydraulic driver
listen oh that’s a that’s a that’s a bench
screw now I grabbed a longer screw here just so you can kind of hear the
difference I definitely I definitely don’t wrote recommend using the
hydraulic driver for large fasteners repetitively but it definitely does just
fine if you’re just doing one or two every once in a while what happens is
the oil inside this drill that is making it so smooth and quiet compared to a
regular driver it does heat up and the viscosity level drops which then you
lose your power and your torque and it will get louder so just a heads up if
you’re gonna go out and buy an oil impulse driver a lack of a surge like
the Maketu oil impulse know that over repetitive use I have experienced issues
where it basically almost seems like the battery’s dead it’s got no power and it
gets loud because I overused it so just a just a disclaimer there but for this
application I want you to hear the difference now I know the audio is probably not
going to show it but between the sound being less and the vibration to my arm
being less this is a much more enjoyable impact to use than a standard impact
however you do lose a little bit of speed a little bit of power and I think
the longevity of the tool will probably be compromised if you’re doing large
fasteners so that’s kind of what I wanted to show you guys that every tool
has its purpose you’re not just gonna go out and buy one tool to do them all
perfectly however with this video hopefully if you’re looking to buy that
first drill and you can kind of say well I really just need to put in some small
fasteners some small holes I got a drill maybe you just need a drill driver man
go out and get a pretty cheap one because I’ll be honest most tools today
are very good if you’re gonna step up your game and you’re gonna go out and
make a living maybe you want to buy something that’s like a hammer drill
driver so you have the ability to kind of have the all-in-one tool to drill
large holes put in some large fasteners maybe at the sacrifice of you know the
quality side or the ergonomics of putting in a large fastener but that’s
where you’re gonna step up to you know maybe an impact driver it’s not gonna be
your everyday drilling tool however you can get away with putting some holes
into material with the right accessories you know such as this that have the
quarter inch hex key on it to do that however all of these tools are awesome
and if you guys want more information check the descriptions down below I’ll
probably try to throw up some stuff once again I’m not recommending you go out
and buy these I’m just saying what a difference is between a drill a hammer
drill and an impact driver so thanks a lot and make sure you guys hit that
subscribe button if you didn’t already for you know to follow along and catch
out next week’s tools day or go back and look at some of these past tools day
videos I appreciate the support and we’ll see you guys later

    Just remember…these specific tools aren't necessarily my recommendations for the specific tool I am referencing, I just grabbed what was close to me! Let me know what other types of videos like this you might be interested in.

  3. Plumbing Ranch Posted on April 17, 2019 at 12:09 am

    great video bro! keep it up

  4. CaptainsOrders Posted on April 17, 2019 at 12:10 am

    impact drivers are great, but the noise and vibration is ridiculous. check out the milwaukee fuel "Surge" its a hydraulic driver, made for medium size fasteners and is less than half the sound of a normal impact. for a remodeler like me its great…if i need to run big GRKs and concrete tappers, you need a standard impact with all the noise.

  5. Jason Weaver Posted on April 17, 2019 at 12:10 am

    Great Video Kyle! Another incredible job! Your video's are greatly appreciated!

    Ever do any standing seam roofing? I have need to repair some. Ever used a man lift attachment for the skid steer? Do they even make those?

  16. BEARD0 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:02 am

    I'll be damned if I want a drill that shuts off when it thinks I'm not strong enough.

  17. Shain Andrews Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:09 am

    Only time I use the "hammer" function is when setting sheet metal screws. Less effort, and tends to not walk around.

  18. Jay Hyde Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:12 am

    Luv Bosch pocket driver for cabinets..use impact driver all the time noise not bad ..just recently received Bosch cordless sds hammer drill as Xmas gift from son love it… hardly use regular drill anymore..drill slash driver thanks.. great vid as always

  23. Doug Johnson Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:40 am

    can also work on your cars or trucks with the impact,,,,,very usedful there…great video keep them coming

  24. Mesh Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:52 am

    Have you tried the hilti drill and impact driver?

  25. Dan Jiles Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:52 am

    I bought some Porter Cable drills and been using for a couple years now . 20volt cordless. Use then on my videos all the time. The impact combo set was the way to go.

  26. Vojnik JNA Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:57 am

    I always used Impact driver for every application before it got popular except for drywall, I got a gun for that.

  27. k horder Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:13 am

    A drill driver with hammer is for light tasks and one or two holes every now and then in masonry type of material if your drilling every other day in masonry go to a sds hammer drill. Way quicker at drilling in masonry and work as a mini jack hammer for light/small work.

  28. paul kelly Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:16 am

    As a commercial window covering installer the past 33 years, the drill driver is the go to, the hammer drill, once you discover the SDS for concrete, is a paperweight and the impact driver is too cool for the big screws, bolts.
    Love the Toolsday vids Kyle!

  29. Rogers’ Lawn Care Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:20 am

    I enjoy the quality content! With that being said that intro music is not a fit please change it!!!

  30. Leopold Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:27 am

    The hammer mode on these drills are useless. You wont get near the performance even remotely compared to a real SDS.

  31. Lloyd Dahlen Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:31 am

    Thanks for the info 👍

  32. Rasmus Korsholm Posted on April 17, 2019 at 2:36 am

    Another great video Kyle! Fun to see the different types in action!
    Do You find that a 2.0 Ah is enough on your Dewalt impact?

  33. LUIS ARENAS IBARRA Posted on April 17, 2019 at 3:09 am

    I think Dewalt id winner

  34. John Lovelace Posted on April 17, 2019 at 3:43 am

    Great video! In my line of work, I used a traditional impact driver to the point of having chronic tendinitis of the elbow. The Milwaukee Surge is 3x less vibration, 1/2 the noise level, and no more tendinitis. It has been my go to tool for a couple years now; glad to see you make mention of this in your video as well. Cheers!

  36. The Tokyo Craftsman Posted on April 17, 2019 at 3:58 am

    Happy Toolsday Kyle,
    I have a 14.4v Hitachi impact, the full on pro level tool, it was not cheap (remember I’m in Japan), that being said, I use that impact daily, and it’s still my go to impact, still us g the original batteries. I bought it new in June 2011, so coming up on 8 years of hard use. Buy good tools, and you only cry once.
    I have the small Bosch and it’s great for cabinet installation.
    See you next toolsday,
    Cheers from Tokyo!

  37. jps101574 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 4:03 am

    Once you buy a Surge or Makita Oil Impulse you use another standard impact.

  38. davis2022 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 4:24 am

    4:02 Impact drivers do not hammer like a hammer drill. The anvil only drives rotationally.

  39. isaac toyosi Posted on April 17, 2019 at 4:40 am

    Who uses the hammer drill feature anymore? I’ll grab my cordless sds hammer drill every time. Faster and quieter

  40. Josh Hibbs Posted on April 17, 2019 at 4:51 am

    YES! Thank you for clearing this up. I have a DeWalt hammer drill and impact combo. Just because I don’t know when I may need the extra power.

  41. geo54 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 5:33 am


  42. Aiden Nymes Posted on April 17, 2019 at 6:36 am

    Impact driver doesn't hammer, only rotary forces there. Also look at AEG/Ridgid impact driver technology. It's sooooo quiet you wouldn't believe.

  43. Сергей Геннадьевич Posted on April 17, 2019 at 6:40 am

    What is Bosch 18v model????

  44. NoC Posted on April 17, 2019 at 7:04 am

    Kyle, you should try the Bosch MultiConstruction hex shank drill bits for impact drivers. Drills in wood, brick, concrete and more.
    Really great when doing a job with your impact driver and you need to make a hole, just snap in place instead of going to get another tool.

  45. D K Posted on April 17, 2019 at 8:13 am

    Unfortunately I have All the same drills you have, plus Ryobi. I really need to stick to one brand. I do love my 12-volt Bosch's. I started out with a full line of Ryobi, then upgraded to a full line of Bosch. Then the 60 volt Dewalt came out, especially the table saws and chop saws. No one else was making anything comparable for a while, (Bosch still doesn't so I advise people to stay away from them due to limited tool options)so I got a full line of Dewalt tools. Unfortunately I've never liked yellow so when Milwaukee came out with their battery table saw, chop saw and chainsaws I have been slowly buying their line.. Uhhhh….

    Personally I don't think the hammer drill drivers are useful to any significant degree. A dedicated tool – the sds hammer is much better. You also end up with a really heavy drill driver which doesn't really drill holes in concrete .

  47. I stood there thunderstruck Posted on April 17, 2019 at 8:34 am

    Hammer option is only for concrete (or rock).

    I can recommend Bosh little drill driver GSR 12V for home projects. I used it for building kitchen and built-in shelf (made with two by fours) and it worked pretty well. It has changeable heads and to my surprise I used all of them for specific task.

    Nice vid!
    I've got a ryobi impact driver and drill driver, really nice machines but since i bought bosch 12v impact and drill i only bring the ryobi's out for big stuff, the 12v-line is awesome for all but the really big stuff

    Great video! Glad you are keeping tools day going!

  51. Jesper Monsted Posted on April 17, 2019 at 12:30 pm

    I'd only recommend a hammer drill to someone who only buys a single drill for all of their DIY needs. For anyone else, they don't actually do enough to replace the rotary hammer and the added bulk and price make them less desirable for everything else.

  52. Little White Dory Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:06 pm

    Perfect timing! I'm in the market for both a hammer drill and impact driver! This was very informative. Thanks!

  53. Appolyon Posted on April 17, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    12:00 "Now let's turn the hammer drill function on and you can kinda get a feel for what the difference is."
    One sounds like a regular precision drill the other sounds like you're in a scene from The Exorcist.

    just what we needed another drill video

    I was hoping to at least get a review of the Drill Dozer from "Idiocracy"

  57. dlockett2911 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    What screw bits are those?

  58. kmonnier Posted on April 17, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    I buy all of them.

  59. Aaron S Posted on April 17, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    You can get a drill, impact, and battery in one set for less than separate. Takes a lot of decision out of it. In my case I got a drill, impact, sawzall, flashlight, and a 4 amp battery for $200. If I bought all that separate it would of been more than double so it was a no-brainer. The only other thing I really need is a second battery. The only reason to buy the tools separate is if it didn't come in a kit or it broke out of warranty.

  60. Garage Dweller Posted on April 17, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    Love my Milwakee m12 system because it is lightweight and the drill and impact fit in my tool apron with ease. Small but powerful. The impact has seen years of use and abuse and keeps going.

  61. KONAMAN Studio Posted on April 17, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    The right tool for the job I no as a homeowner I have a block house I know I needed a hammer drill the board up the windows if I needed to for hurricanes House of bought the impact while I was at same time so I just have 1 for drilling and one for the screwing I didn't side I have a drill driver so I can set the torque setting so I don't tear up stuff inside the house I like the newer drills with the new technologies when I worked I tore my tendon in my hand when a hole saw into Steel if we have the technology back then I wasn't injured I have courted and cordless I like them both thank you for your video you take care of your wife and kid and your employees will catch you on your next one

  62. Danijel Jelicic Posted on April 17, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Hammermode in Wood?

  63. crunch9876 Posted on April 17, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    But an impact, rent a roto hammer. That’s it.

  64. Bret Lambky Posted on April 17, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    If you really need a hammer 🔨 drill.
    #1 HILTI, when I worked as a jig builder for Boeing. This was the only hammer drill for bolting tools tools to the ground. Some of the slabs we drilled through we eight plus inches thick. HILTI never fails. Oh and a good vacuum system to collect the tons of concrete dust.

  65. Robert Gore Posted on April 17, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Hammer drill Is not for wood bro

  66. kyle p. Posted on April 18, 2019 at 12:03 am

    What impact bits do you use? I have Milwaukee and Makita impact bits, but I was curious when I saw the green bits you were using.

  67. Jack Sak Posted on April 18, 2019 at 1:31 am

    Excellent explanations and demo… thanks…

  68. Mopardude Posted on April 18, 2019 at 2:17 am

    Impact drivers aren't meant for drilling applications. Hammer functions on drills are useless to 90% of the people out there. You are in the one trade that an impact and Hammer drill are more useful to you than just a normal drill can provide. For any young guys who watch or guys just getting into the trades a regular 18v drill will get them far.

  69. Adam Olson Posted on April 18, 2019 at 2:59 am

    Surprised you did not bust out the triple hammer. Haha.

    Great Video, very good info in the diff's

  72. bhepp344 Posted on April 19, 2019 at 11:19 pm

    M12 Fuel combo. They’re great. Acme tools, tool barn, or cpo. Check um out. Well worth the $.

  73. Justin Phillips Posted on April 20, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Great video as always. I am not in the trade but a fairly competent DIY'er. I have a cordless hammer drill which I used for most applications, and I will switch to my cordless impact driver for fasteners that need it. But I also have a corded SDS drill that I used for heavy duty concrete drilling like fence posts and block work that the hammer drill cannot cope with. Also useful for its chisel mode for breaking up concrete and brickwork when needed.

  74. myke collins Posted on April 21, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    I tried to explain this very thou to my wife. She didn't get it. I will admit it was more the teacher thanthe pupil. I just had her watch this and you should've seen the Ahh Haa look on her face. Thank you Kyle. Oh yeah. She just subed and will be catching up.

  75. John Hunter Posted on April 21, 2019 at 10:40 pm

    Love Toolsday!Now talk about the bits!

  76. Jack Patteeuw Posted on April 22, 2019 at 1:48 pm

    For the typical DIYer, you really should start with a lighter, probably 12V, 3/8" drill. You can find bits up to 1/2" turned down to 3/8" so that is not a problem. You will appreciate the light weight and compact size every time you use it.
    Your SECOND drill should be a CORDED 1/2" 𝐓𝐑𝐈𝐏𝐋𝐄 gear reduction drill. There are only a few of these on the market, but when you are using a 3/4" Silver & Deming bit, a 1" or large spade bit or a large hole saw, that triple gear reduction will get you through the work piece.
    Also, spend the money on a separate impact driver. If you do much mechanical work, get one with a 3/8" drive and the a locking 1/4" hex adapter. Much better that the other way around.

  77. BJM Graphics Posted on May 14, 2019 at 2:31 am

    I have a DeWALT drill driver that is powerful and has a ton of settings so I probably don’t need to get an impact. I also bought a DeWALT corded hammer drill for $70 on Amazon and it’s cheap because it’s a one trick pony and all I’m going to use it is to mount outdoor rail posts to a concrete patio. I’ll just use it for those rare super drilling projects. Thanks for your video. I must add that you get what you paid for so people ought to read up on the features before buying.

    I have a DeWalt 996 🔨 drill 👍

  82. Freddie Slaughter Posted on September 26, 2019 at 11:42 am

    I now own a DeWalt 12v 3/8" drill driver, I want to get an 18 or 20v 1/2" drill driver. What should I buy? I'm not a contractor, just an average person.

  83. EmNM Campbell Posted on October 15, 2019 at 4:25 am

    Thanks for this video. I'm not even to 'hobby level' on many things and I have been making do with a drill driver for all applications for a long time. I'm a desk jockey so getting a good understanding what the differences are among these tools really helps! Seems like an impact driver could have saved me a lot of trouble in my past.

  84. Happy Fox Posted on October 17, 2019 at 8:17 am

    it would also help if you would change the screw type as well, from using philips head to using torx or even a square head, that would allow you to have more grip on the screw and it would allow you to put more power into torque without stripping the head, it's not just about being inexperienced, it's about using the right fastener along with the right tool.
