I have been trying to find this answers, before I can buy the tool.
I have had some bad experience with corded tools, and would like to go for a cordless/brushless drill/driver. Not interested in any fan-based branding, but the tool which can last me longer.
I have seen examples online where people have used Impact driver to drill 2.5" holes into brick walls, and then drive 5mm screws. I understand that Impact driver is more about "Driving" and Drills are about "Drilling" - but it also appears that now these days you can get Masonry Bits that fits into 1-1/4" chucks for typical impact divers.
I do need to drill holes at home (both inside the house and outside the house) on brick walls. Besides, I will probably be mending my neighbouring fence due to some typical wearNtear. I don't want to feel like I lost again to a power tool. I really like Impact Drivers, but I still cannot understand whether impact driver will be sufficient for my case.
Could someone please clarify whether this can do the job for me?
