Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowbabe Amazing Impact Driver!! (Even for small a woman!!)
The Milwaukee Cordless Impact Driver is amazing! It is lightweight, requires very little pressure to drive a screw in, has a light that shines on the screw for darker corners or for working in low light (see photo), awesome clip to keep it right at your side, recharges the battery quickly, battery stays charged for a very long time, comes with two 12v batteries which allows one to fully charge long before you need it, battery level indicator on side of driver (see photo), has a quick bit release, keeps the bit tight into the deck screw head which prevents slipping and striping, and is a small size for easier portability.
I am a small woman. It is difficult for me to use a heavy drill to drive in screws because I have to put so much of my body weight into the drill to keep the bit from slipping. This becomes almost impossible when working on projects above my head or at odd angles. With the Milwaukee Cordless Impact Driver, I was able to repair my deck with ease. My hands, shoulders, and lower back usually hurt after drilling so much, but I feel great!!
I decided to give the Milwakee Cordless Impact Driver a test. With close supervision, I had my five year old drive a 3 inch screws into a couple 2x4. He was able to do it easily.
The only downside is the noise of the impact driver. It is fine if you are working during the day. If you have grumpy neighbors or a sleeping baby then I don’t suggest using the driver at night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by windmill Worth the expense!
Bought this for it's use installing gutters. Have been using a "cordless drill" for years as a driver for hard ware. What a difference this tool makes. It's light & easy to use. Got done with the job, (removal & replacement of 50'), still had a full charge.
Last work I was doing my cordless drill fell off of the step ladder and "shattered" the battery. The replacement cost of the battery was almost half as much as I spent on this handy driver.
Too late smart!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hamwell60 Perfect Tool for assembling shed
Purchased this tool to help w/ construction of a shed. The light weight and smaller footprint has made it a breeze to drive 3" and 3 1/2" screws into tight places. No "torque" wrist at the end of the day as I had with my 18v drill. Shipping was ahead of schedule and the on line only sale price for the kit (which included 2 batteries and charger) beat the price for the raw tool with 2 batteries at the HD store. Battery has needed only one charge for a week of on and off work. Very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy 12 Volts of Power
I was totally impressed with the 12 volt Milwaukee impact gun. I put up 75 Feet of fence using the tool right out of the box. I placed the second battery on the charger and went to work. The impact gun was driving 4 inch golden screws thru treated 2x4 into treated 4x4 with no problem. I was also plesantly supprised by the battery life of the 12 volt system. My buddy had an 18 volt Dewalt and I kept up with him just about board for board. It did take a little longer to drive the screws just due to the power difference in the impact guns. I liked the fact that it didnt weigh as much as the 18 volt and after 6 hours of work, I could still use my hands whereas my buddy couldnt hardly raise his hands. The belt clip kept me from throwing it on the ground or in a bucket. I got a kick out of the light on the impact gun. That is till I lost my car keys and I went along the fence to find them because we worked till dark. I am already looking at other Milwaukee 12 volt tools to go with my driver. I build lots of small items and toys and I find that this tool has all of the power I need to accomplish the job. I have proven to my self and my buddy that it can tackle a 75 foot fence and still kick a 4 inch screw into wood. For a DIY'er this is a great tool, but I would not recommend it for a professional fence builder. The small size will fool you because it does have alot of power. For the money it is fantastic. I have a new respect for Milwaukee tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Free88 Good, Lighweight, Compact
This is a good compact driver. It is lightweight and compact. It handles well and has just enough power for a variety of light duty tasks.
The big selling point is that it is light and compact. You don't get the power of the 18V+ class. Not even close. Basically, this drill is not for construction, demo, and more advanced tasks. It is for the light-duty, DIY-er that needs to do some light work once every other weekend.
The standard batteries, in general, are not very good. However, for this tool, you get a decent amount of use per charge. The standard charger is good. Chargers the standard battery pretty quick.
