I think you will damage the bolt without removing it with the electric
250ft/lbs impact.

I have an electric and a pneumatic, and I use them a lot.

I'm also considering buying a cordless one for away use (U-Pull-It boneyards,
Rally Service, etc.)

One more thing, for weekend use buy a cheap one. It will probably last enough.
