Alright, so i got this m12 impact driver after about two months of researching and looking around at different brands and voltages of impact drivers. I ended up getting this one at a certain "orange" home improvement warehouse for about 99 bucks on a great sale. Brought this bad boy home and immediately charged the batteries and went on to trying it out. Got this for its lightweight, power, and usefulness. Love the small size of this, and will be using this for driving hex sheet metal screws in various gauge sheet metal. So that is exactly what I did.

I proceeded to drive about 30 sheet metal screws, in sheet metal obviously. I was blown away, because it cut through like a hot knife through butter. I then began to drive 3'' torx head screws and 3'' phillips head screws through pressure treated 2x4 wood in our mancave, and that too was very impressive with no effort. I more than likely won't be using this for drilling, as this is not its intended purpose, but you never know. Mainly, I will be using this as my main HVAC power tool.

Battery life seems great and provides more than enough power to this amazing tool. I am so glad that I ended up getting this one, but will be returning it to the store to get the combo kit of this impact driver and the hammer drill for an extra 50 dollars. Now i will probably get the shockwave magnetic nut drivers to go with it, since they are impact-rated. Oh, and by the way this was my first Milwaukee power tool and I am beyond happy with it. Please vote as to the helpfulness of my review, and if you have any questions just ask.

I read some reviews where the users 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. Yes as an impactor it has high torque but only in short bursts when it's impacting, for boring, a continuous rotational torque tool is in order (drill/driver, hammer drill, hole hawg etc) It's "beefy" heavy (that's a good thing). It has a built in, trigger activated battery gauge & LED light. Other 12v impact drivers have higher RPMs, advertise more torque, are more compact, have a better work light, but none combines all of those things like this tool. It's superiority is seen when doing 'heavier' work, (for a 12volt), tapping light metal, or smaller lags. Upgrade the battery to an M12 "XC" battery and it'll go all day... The kit: tool, tough blow-molded case with plenty of space for glasses, gloves, bits & attachments, 2 standard M12 batteries + charger.

I love this tool. There are so many great things and so few bad. Let's start with the great.

It's small. It has a nice weight to it. It has a quality build. It's both fast and powerful. It has a little LED on the front to illuminate your workarea. And of course it uses lithium batteries, which are far superior to the NiCd batteries you would get in 18v tools. That's the basics. I will delve more into this later. Now onto the bad.

The only bad thing about this drill is that there is no where to store your extra bits on the drill. Most larger drills have something for that. This one doesn't. Other than that, this tool is definitely louder than normal, non-impact drivers. But that's the price you pay for power.

I suppose the lack of a chuck is a negative. However, it's also a positive because it's far easier to switch bits using the bit-holder on this tool. But if you have legacy drill bits, you will need to either go get new drill bits that have a hex on the end, or you will need to buy the chuck attachment, which is probably a good idea anyway. Having a chuck vs having a hex bit-holder is really a matter of preference, so that's up to you.

This tool comes with few accessories. You get a hard plastic case with plenty of additional compartments for additional components. You get 2 batteries and a quality charger. A word about the charger... I was pleasantly surprised with the charger for this tool. Other drills I have owned give you a very generic charger. This tool comes with a charger that has some intelligence built-in as well as dual indicators that tell you what's going on with the charging. For example, it will blink when it notices the battery is too hot. It will then wait until it's the correct temperature to continue charging.

There are some great reviews about this from others so I won't repeat some of the obvious. For less than 3 lbs and under $100, this is a little workhorse impact driver. If you need bigger more powerful tool, then you have to use the right one for the job. Just don't ask this little guy to do more then it's made for and you'll be a happy camper. When it comes to hanging drywall (especially on a ceiling), having a small lightweight driver in the pocket of your tool belt on a ladder or roof, securing fasteners in steel studs or screws in backerboard why would you want to drag around the 18v monster. That is why a bought this tool and I'd go and get another tomorrow if I lost this one. Which is a slight concern because it is so small and easy to stash. I got the "red lithium" batteries with mine and wish that it was a little clearer with some of the M12 series tools which battery was included. Maybe some older stock has the 1.4 not the 1.6 AH units. This is one of my most used tools and I'm very happy with my purchase.
