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.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8 in. Ratchet (Tool-Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 470.

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.

It's compact, has more torque than you'd think, and I love that you can manually ratchet with it to break a nut/bolt loose. I find myself reaching for this tool more than I ever thought I would when purchased it. It really cuts the time it takes to complete many tasks, and can get into places that some other tools cannot. It is very comfortable in my hand and I really like the variable speed trigger and the bright LED light is very handy, especially under vehicles up in tight spots. I own many Milwaukee products, and I really like all of them, but this ratchet is one of my absolute favorites and I would truly recommend this tool to anyone, I believe you will be as overly satisfied with it as I was/am!

I also use it at work and the battery lasts all day on the job. It's small and fits into many tight areas. It's lighter weight than many other drills (handy being on a ladder) and it's still powerful enough to do what I need it to do. I have used it for drilling into wood and drilling into metal. I haven't drilled into concrete or masonry yet, but I'm confident it can make the small holes I need to set a few bolts.

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.

I've only owned this for a few weeks but it's already saved me several hours. Great for trimming molding, dowel rods, flashing, etc. especially in tight places. The only downside is that the cutting/grinding/sanding tools are pricey.
