I probably use my m18 impact driver more for tight “TOTO concealed trap” toilet installs vs driving screws..
That being said, I mostly drive screws with my M18 hammer drill/driver.

I stopped installing (refusing to install, told customer to choose different product) that style Toto system because I didn't like the overly flexible blocks.
Do they still provide only slotted screws?

I’m not a fan of this style TOTO installation, it’s too time consuming. I charge extra for these installs.

But the provided screws were Phillips!

The slotted screws are stupid, worse it's Toto. I've never had a secure toilet issue with the setup though.
i had to replace a leaking rubber gasket on one of those TOTO installs in a condo, to mount the grey adaptor they used proper closet bolts for the flange but shot concrete nails into the floor instead of screws..
Luckily I was able to cut the grey adaptor in 1/2, change the gasket and put the grey adaptor back together with a fernco.
