When using a 1/4′′ hex to 1/2′′ square drive adapter with an impact driver or a 1/2′′ square drive to 1/4′′ hex bit holder with an impact wrench is always an option, it isn’t always the best option. Both chuck varieties are right there on the tool with this tool. Anyone who has ever misplaced or lost bit holders or socket adapters will be grateful for this.

There is somewhat less peak torque than the brushless model, and this is a single-speed tool, whereas the brushless version offers three speed and torque settings.
