Good question and all i have are questions...   (not much help, sorry)

(1) you talking battery, air, or plug-in electric?
(2) you talking 1/4" driver or regular size anvil driver?
(3) you talking about powder or gas driven ?

In my experience air powered is best as long as you have a good compressor.

My son, however, uses a battery powered one he swears by.

Hello, I use a Cordless Impact, mostly for remodeling/construction work, more than adequate power. Some of the cordless units out there with a sales pitch to auto mechanics are very powerful, but pricey. If you are a wrench/repair shop  guy, I agree with the others, pneumatic is the way to go!! Good luck, Lou

Without knowing what you want to do..... I use an 18v Makita impact driver for small mechanic type jobs and lag bolts in building. My health isn't getting any better so I bought a Chicago Electric 1/2" electric impact wrench for when I need to work on brakes or change a wheel. Harbor Freight, about $40. I would not recommend this one for someone to work with, but for homeowner jobs it does really good.

I think about buy Makita XST01 like in this article Best Impact Gun for the Money - Webproductradar (https://webproductradar.com/best-impact-gun-for-the-money).
