Hi everyone, I am looking for an Impact Driver for my woodworking project. The kind of wood I’m using is quite hard and thick. What kind of impact drivers that suits best? Kindly give me some insights. Thanks in advanced.

None!

Impact drivers were primarily designed to install large numbers of screws quickly into softwood framing. At that they excel. What they aren't so good at is dealing with screws going into ironmongery or hard timbers where the shock of the head of the screw striking the surface of the material can cause the screw head to completely shear off. This can be partly overcome by using a 3- to 6-speed brushless model, but these tend to run in at about £200 bare of batteries and I can assure you that they aren't always the solution.

Drill /driver does most of what I need. It'll drive quite big screws despite only being a 14.4 Parkside.
I've got a Parkside impact driver as well. I don't use it much. Noisy!

I'm not anti impact drivers - in fact quite the contrary - but there are some tasks that they are simply completely unsuited to. Such as the OP's task.

good point j&k and ill add that i rarely actually use mine. it comes out always when im fitting pvc windows and doors. then i use it with concrete screws to secure the frames in place.

most of the time i have a pilot bit or counter sink bit in one of my drills and bit holder and driver bit in the other drill and the impacter stops in its box

Being a miserable git I would suggest the question is a wind up (I am being polite). Perhaps an invitation for a post to affiliate links etc. but I thought not to be a nasty cnut and report. I might do now though.
