I know of a number of operations which use captive nuts and self piloting bolts to secure the top heads. Essentally just the impact gun is required and the nuts can be chaned quickly if one becomes damaged. To gain added height the impact guns gan be bought with extended shafts which will elevate the gun slightly. If you have the time (approx 2 additional minutes per drum) there are a number of pneumatic torque tools which go one step further and elliminate the nerve damage associated with repetitive impact tool use.
