It’s hard to compare this pair with the others. These have brushless motors, which adds to the cost. The larger of the two batteries adds power and run-time. The drill has a larger-capacity, metal chuck (which locks for tightening) and a selector ring to switch between drilling and driving modes. The impact driver is the only one with two modes, one with slower rpm and less power, nice for smaller or more brittle fasteners. It also has a handy, push-in chuck. Both tools have belt hooks and battery indicators.
