Problem with the impact drills is they're really noisy. Not something you want to do setting up late one evening or leaving early in the morning. The drill is way quieter.

x2 on the Rigid.

I didn't really choose to have electric stabs on mine, they just came with the trailer I wanted. They ARE really slow, and mine make tons of noise even though they are well lubricated.

I saw another camper last weekend use an impact on his manual stabs and I was jealous at how fast he had them down.

Though I'm REALLY close to putting a manual set just in front of the axles. I'm gonna have to check out Ebay for that deal Texashighsheriff mentioned...

This is all I use as I find winding them up/down simple - I don't even bother carrying my drill. I have (annually) dripped some oil on the screws, otherwise no fuss.

Same here. I can't feel them with a drill motor.

I like pushing the button. I have lots of time on my hands.

Another vote for manual. Never breaks, always works. A drill can be used for more than the jacks. We've had them all from HWH and Big Foot auto level on the motorhomes, 6 point Level up on the fifth wheel, to electric and manual jacks. At the end of the day, I'll take the manuals. We can set up with manual leveling and manual stabilizer jacks way quicker than any auto, hydraulic or electric system. Wanna race?
