It does not seem to have "impact" functionality.
I looked around and I am convinced that the extension, that was on it,
was called "boiler tube roller". I am sure it was used for making
boilers and rolling ends for tubes.
Used to drive a roller tube expander to expand the ends of boiler tubes
to seal them in the boiler end plate.
I've used a similar tool many years ago when doing boiler inspections
and retubing them.
There are also air driven ones and for the bigger tubed units hydraulic
Might be a pipe drill. The Iron and steel pipes that carry
water at high pressure. Maybe drilling cement or the like sewer / water
Might be an engine starter for a tractor or the like.

Looking at the output end (a square drive, not a chuck nor a

Not sure whether it is just geared down for massive torque, or also
includes impact wrench features as well.
And I'll bet that it could kill someone who used it carelessly,
just from the massive torque. Get caught between some stationary
structure and the handle -- or the screw-in pipe secondary handle.
I would consider it to be a minimum of a two-man tool.
And somewhat interesting that Chicago Pneumatic produced an
electric tool like this.
