I have used an electric impact for many years with absolutely no problems. I have a feel for the tightness, once it starts to bang I stop when tightening. I have never checked the torque, it is a feel thing you become familiar with.

People don't realize the vibration from the impact works at loosening the blade bolts so much easier than steady hard pressure.
