Customer Questions & Answers

What is the difference 12v to 12v fuel?

Corldless Combo Kit
Asked by: Johnny
the standard 12v uses brushes and the 12v fuel is an all electronic motor producing more power per battery output.. The fuel in my opinion is worth the extra price making it a tool that will virtually last for ever.

No, not with the tool-only version listed here. The kit version of this tool that can be found here on the site here, model # 2426-22, has a soft contractor bag included in it.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8 in. Ratchet (Tool-Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 313.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best purchase ever this drill/impact is amazing. i use this as an electrician. rather than have the extra weight of 18v on my tool belt i use these. self tapping screws no problem, half inch knock out on a panel no problem, installing one hole straps, mini's, they handle with a breeze. plenty of power. they feel to be made heavy duty. i will be buying more m12 tools for sure.

I wanted the M18 version of this but none of the local stores carried it so I wound up getting this after seeing the specs indicate you can drill a 1" hole in wood with a spade bit. I tested it out with some Bosch Daredevil spade bits. The 1" bit bogged down a bit and it took multiple attempts of reversing and starting over to get the hole through. The 3/4" daredevil bit went through each time. I don't think I'd recommend purchasing this tool if you primarily intend to use it bore holes in framing. That's what the Milwaukee Hole Hawg is for. This is a nice right angle drill to use in tight spaces for driving screws with the occasional use of boring larger holes. I purchased a right angle adapter for a regular drill but that was garbage that stripped gears after the first or second hole. This works a lot better than that but it's not what you'd want to use to rough in a hole house. If you don't mind the wait of ordering the M18 version of this has more torque. I wound up getting this because it was in stock, I have M12 batteries and it should suit my needs. I'm running some communications cables and I have a larger Milwaukee cordless right angle drill to bore the larger main holes but I needed something small and light that could get into tight spaces so I can drill down through the top plate with a 1/2" or 5/8" bit to feed the wires down to the wall plate. This is working fine for that. The LED work light is very important and illuminates the drilling area well. I really like how it flashes red when it clutches out instead of turning with the clutch disengaged and making that annoying noise. It's a good right angle drill but I think the owner's manual is a little optimistic when it claims it can do 1" holes with a spade bit. 3/4" went fine.

I was only in market for the impact driver but ended up picking up the set just before the holidays. I figured instead of paying $150 for just the impact driver, for $200 I was able to get this set (with the 4.0 battery) plus a 3rd tool for the extra $50. I love the impact driver for the size and what it can do. The hammer drill is really nice, a bit large for a 12v (almost the same size as my DeWalt 791). Can't go wrong with the set

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far. I replaced an old 18v NiCd drill with this m12 Fuel kit. Initially, I was looking at more 18v drills, but I really like the compact size, and realized I could probably do 95% of the things I needed with this, if not everything. I'm not a contractor, just a homeowner doing DIY jobs. That being said, so far, these have been awesome.

The Bosch and Dremel blades will work with this Milwaulkee M12 multi-tool head & also with the supplied adapter that comes with the multi tool....but I found putting the blade directly on the tools head is a tighter fit. also....when using the head you can put the blade on at 5 different angles to the tool, left, 45 to the left, straight up, 45 to the right & right, (with the supplied adapter it can only be used left, straight and to the right.) This I found nice as I was able to use more of the blades surface without the tool being at a weird angle while working, it's also able to get into tight areas with the different angles.

I tried to drill 3/4" holes into new 2x6's for electrical wires as some of the spaces between the studs were very tight, I used a self feeding bit & then a spade bit, this drill just stalled with both. I ended up using a their m12 hammer drill driver, it was slow going but got the job done. I also used that same drill for drilling into 60 yr old 2x10's with a 1 1/8" self feed bit for installing #2 AL wire for a sub panel, where the full sized right angle AC powered drill would just "walk" all over the place to start and then almost threw me off the ladder once it dug in, again a little slow going but the hammer drill got the job done safely & without the cord getting in the way. I'll keep this drill for smaller projects like installing cabinets & putting knockdown furniture together as well as building cases with drawer slides. I guess I expected too much from this little guy?
