  • Quiet impact driver?

    I've been using my M12 Milwaukee drill and love it but ever since I tried out an impact driver, I can't get off my mind how amazing they are at fastening and unfastening screws and bolts ... The only thing is that they are loud as hell! I'd love to stay 12v (for weight reasons). Are there any ones that are quieter? The one I tried out was a 12v Bosch (loud!!!) Any thoughts?

    All the impact drivers I have used are loud.

      yes, there is an impact that is no louder than a purr of a cat, it's an oil-filled 18v Makita BTS130



      Good news: it's discontinued. I tried it and it's absolutely quiet, just low buzzing sound.

        My DW/Makita impact drivers perform well despite the noise. I thinks its a neat way to get rid of nosy neighbors or pets
