Default Tighten carriage screws

I need to use carriage screws with bolt heads through hole in a steel frame to
underside of new wood stair treads The screws will be m8 or 10 and 30mm
long. Is there something like an electric screwdriver to tighten them as I
will be working by touch only on the lower ones near the floor and bolting
them upward. I dont relish the thought of using an ordinary spanner on the 100
plus screws that will be needed

There are nut driver sockets that fit into impact drivers.

These might help:

I'm pretty sure Harbor Freight has them too. One time use and
light duty would
make those acceptable.

I have a flexible right angle drive that fits my cordless impact
driver - 1/4" hex -and an adapter to 3/8 square drive. Using socket
spin the nuts on till they are snug - then finish with ratcheting box
end wrench.
