I noticed that Menards has this impact driver kit on sale for $229.
Bosch 26618-01 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Impact Drill/Driver Kit

It's practically like getting 2 drills in one.

It comes with 2 batteries (overkill for me).

I have (and am selling) the 26614 kit. I went to the lithium for a
little bit lighter unit and the promised battery lifetime. The Bosch
doesn't show a bit of battery depletion in 4 years. I had a client
join me in building his deck and got to watch the Bosch keep right up
with the Makita 141 I replaced it with. I love both machines/kits.

Then there is the corded model: Makita 6952.

From what I understand, the only corded impact driver available.

Yeah, who wants a cord when you don't have to have one? These
Impactor thingies'll take LUG NUTS off, fer chrissake.

Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds
are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her
tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the
existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of
the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
