Impact Driver
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:03 PM »
This question is mainly for people outside of NA. Did Protool make an Impact Driver/Drill? If so, did that model get rebranded by Festool? I'm not sure if I'm sold on the TI 15. I was just wondering if you guys had another option over there.

Protool did have 2 Impact drivers called IDC15-2 and IWC18-2.
They were discontinued before the PDC/DRC models were converted to Festool models.
Why they stopped selling it I don't know.
The 14,4V range of Protool has been discontinued a 1-2 years back already. That I also don't understand.
While the IWC18-2 model was even upgraded tot the latest models.
Festoolian since 1998.

Yes you are right.
There is a lot confusion about the terminology between Impact Drivers and Impact Wrenches.
I made the same mistake.
Both Protool machine have 1/2" connection for using sockets and that makes it most often a Wrench.
There is also a 1/4" connection for using bits inside the socket connection and you can also use a Centrotec chuck CC-IP which differs from the standard one because it fits over the 1/2" socket.

The point is they are a lot better than cordless drills at putting in large screws, concrete screws etc. They also don't have the habit of trying to snap your wrist like a powerful cordless drill would.

They both serve a purpose, impact drivers have less strain and more torque.

Drills are quieter and can screw faster than an impact drill. Eventhough impact drills have high RPM, they have to do 1 full rotation to engage the hammer, and when the hammer hits your bit it is quickly absorbed and almost never does a full 360 degree turn. Thankfully they're usually high RPM/BPM but they're still slower than a drill.

The customers either picked up the 10,8 Volt or 18 Volt version i was told. So they ditched the 14,4 Volt line.
