Hello,
I'm wondering if it is acceptable to use Impact Driver drill bits in a regular combi drill without any disadvantages or potential issues down the line like the bit snapping due to stress?

I've been told that using regular full size drill bits in an impact driver has a disadvantage related to the increased chances of cam-out, but are there any disadvantages to using impact bits in a regular drill?

The drills I own are a Combi PSB 1800 LI-2 and an Impact Driver PDR 18 LI
the impact driver specified has a torque rating of 130 Nm, so it's not exactly the most powerful.
Thanks for the help!

I wouldn't even think twice about putting impact driver bits into a standard drill.

They're presumably hardened to cope with the extra forces of the impact driver, if in doubt, use the torque setting on the driver if it has one.

What Ayjay said. Impact bits can cope with higher torque than standard bits ... far more important to get the right bit PH and PZ might look alike but they aren't the same...

Won't make any difference, as noted impact bits are tougher to cope with the extra torque.

Does this mean that using an impact bit in a combi drill actually has an advantage over regular drill bits?
(even though they are meant for impact drivers)

Basically they're a bit harder wearing. Depending of the torque of your drill/driver the impact bits can last longer..


BTW I assume you are asking about screw bits and not drill bits... because that was what was in your pics...

ah, that's good news.
Now I won't have to bother buying a whole new set of standard screw bits*
Learnt something new. Drill bits are these:

not the ones I had initially posted.
Thanks for the help - much appreciated.
