Many hammer/impact type tools have built-in vibration controls, but many do not. That is one feature that varies across the board. Within a certain company, models that are almost identical may or may not have a vibration reduction feature, so if you want this feature, check the specific tool you are interested in very carefully.
Finally, even though the tile cement (mortar) I had chosen was a good one and guaranteed curing during cold weather, it still took longer to cure because of the temperature, which made the job even longer to complete. Although this allowed for laying more tiles, between the weather problems, lighting issues etc., I found myself running out of time necessary for the jog at hand.
Ears also need protecting when using loud noisey tools. The sound of power tools, especially notoriously loud ones like drills, can seriously damage your hearing if you are right next to them and are not wearing any protective foam ear plugs. These ear plugs do not cost very much and should be worn to reduce high decibel levels from noisy tools.
Concerning the performance of the tools, take a drill as an example. You can purchase a plain drill to drill holes in wood and/or metal; read the description to make sure that it can drill into metal. Most drills do not work well when drilling ceramics, concrete, or masonry things. For that you will need an impact hammer driver-drill along with the proper bits. This tool, just like you would expect, hammers the bit onto the surface beating little pieces off until you get the right size and depth that you want; the more impacts/blows per minute (IPM/BPM) the tool generates, it will get that hole done faster, and the higher the torque, the faster your work will go too. The next step up from the impact hammer driver-drill is the impact driver; this usually has more impacts/blows per minute and more torque to get things done even faster than the impact hammer driver-drill. Similarly, a drill could be fitted with socket type bits to use to attach fasteners or drive bolts, but an impact wrench will get the job done even faster. Also, if you use the right tool for the job, the time and money saved on the job will translate into extending the life of your other tools because a drill-driver used to put a hole in some masonry is going to abuse the tool and shorten its life.
Electric-powered tools can cause several cuts, punctures, pinches, amputations and electrocutions. Power tools can seriously injure or sometimes kill the user if they are not aware of all its uses. Users should learn about different types of power tools before start using tools. They should gain some knowledge about its safety precautions.
