Summary: I think this is going to be my favorite screw driving tool ever. Why? It is light weight. At slow speeds, it is gentle enough for small screws. There is enough torque for anything suitable to be driven by 1/4 inch hex bits. It seems to be following in the Milwaukee M12 tradition of being well built. I honestly can't find any negatives about the Milwaukee M12 Impact Driver. Thank's to the promotion Milwaukee was running, mine was free!
Summary: This tool is used daily by many different operators. It has never failed. Plenty of power, short charge time, and light weight makes it the perfect tool. The best thing is that it is the tool only. I do not need extra charges filling up my job box.
Summary: This is a great little impact. I have used it to put together some tool carts and other stuff that I would usually use a ratchet for and got the job done alot faster. I have an 18v impact for larger bolts, but this little thing fits your hand and really gets stuff tight.
Summary: Few things grind my gears like a negative review for a tool in which the reviewer describes using a tool INCORRECTLY ea: I read a review (or two) where the person descibes using this with a forstner bit & another with spade bits. This is a 12v impactor it's not meant for boring, nor is an 18V model, it is predominantly a "fastening" tool, not so much drilling, much less boring holes.
Summary: I have a Milwaukee drill/driver as my first tool. I didn't think I would ever need an impact driver until I started doing some serious work around the house. The impact feature drove 3" wood screws with ease for toe nailing some framing projects I had. The impact feature reduces the chance of stripping screw heads and pulled out some really old screws. The tool uses the M12 battery which works fine for my DIY/handyman work around the house.
Summary: I used the tool for driving 4" dry wall screws into hard pine ,over a three day period of about 8 hours non stop each day ,I broke about every screw adapter I had apex,dewalt,pratt-read and over seas junk , the one that is still in the driver and still in one piece is from Milwaukee tool it came in some kit with a drill i got ! I 'm very hard on tools I expect them to perform and this one works well !
Summary: more than adequate for my purpose with the xc battery .one charge did the entire roof driving 2.5 inch screws to hold the metal down.much lighter than my makita 18v. highly recomment to anyone .
Summary: I used to have an 18v cordless drill that was a pain to lug around. Now, this lightweight drill makes doing all those nagging improvements around the house a joy. The hammer function automatically kicks in when torque is sensed. This drill dosn't have a torque setting like the other M12 drill does so stick with drilling screws into wood or working with with sockets with this drill.
