Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy one I purchased this tool about a year ago. I have worn the paint off. I run a small business in West Michigan, I install and remove Docks and boat lifts. Up here the lakes freeze and they must be installed and removed for the winter, this tool SPENT 2 MINUTES UNDERWATER, I blew into the battery ports and into the bottom of the tool, and preceded to use it... On the same wet battery... for 3 more hours. If that does not tell you what you need to know, buy something else and be displeased. June 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My secret weapon ! The beast has all but replaced my other impacts ! With a 4 ah battery , it runs for ever . Great form factor , great egos . The little guy has taken a beating , and come back asking for more ! June 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by True Quality I finally payed the premium for Milwaukee and I am not disappointed. When I opened my M12 Fuel 1/4 Driver I was blown away. The fit, finish, and build quality are truly top notch. The features and innovation put into this little driver is incredible. The two speed setting is more useful than I originally figured. The 10 Second LED light delay is a feature that I could not do without again. No more having to barely hold the trigger in to see in those tight spaces. I would buy this product over again in a heartbeat. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Tool Used Every day, will try it on anything first, then I go to 3/8 drive impact April 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent drill I own the Milwaukee M12 2402-20 drill, works great but also wanted the impact drill for a little more power, I work in the HVAC field and would and have recommended this drill to others in the conscruction work. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase!! Great power on a small tool .. The two modes is something I didn't know about it when I purchased it but probably its best quality April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brushless is definitely the way to go! The brushless motor design of this model is definitely superior to the standard model, I own both. Well worth the little extra money in my estimation. I'm surprised at the extra power and battery life. This thing is like carrying a .38 Special, with the power of a .44 magnum! I own a mobile communications business, so I use it to fasten to anything from plastic to heavy steel, and it works great on all of them. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Huge bag for the buck! I work for a fencing company in southern Oregon I use my m12fuel to set 3 inch & 1 inch screws all day. I hang it of my tool bags all day and barely no it's there.. Nothing bad to say. I will be buy more m12fuel cordless products. April 13, 2015
