Impact surge driver vs impact fuel driver

Recommended Posts

I’ve got the Surge.  It’s pretty good for woodworking but so is my DCF887. The nice thing is the reduction in sound and control ability.

I have the surge as well as gen 1, 2, and 3 fuel impact drivers.  Like Chris said the noise reduction is huge which makes it ideal for indoor and tight quarters work.  I would also agree on small fastners you get a lot of feel and control.  It's not going to be the tool for driving lag bolts.  While it maybe could do it, I wouldn't use it for high production work where you're driving hundreds of screws one after another.  Not sure if the self tapping mode is something you're interested in but I personally have never had much success using those modes on any impact.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised in the power department but it is quiet which is great in the shop. Not a power house but I’ve had it for a while now and I do like it. My 887 is my go to when I’m screwing the bigguns but alas
