Will the battery that comes with this work in the M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Sawzall?

Asked by: dnels89
Yes it will work on that tool as well. All the tools in the M18 series use the same batteries

Can you adjust the lbs like a torque wrench?

Asked by: dingus
The impact driver uses a different system. It screws in to a point and then starts to hammer. The longer that you let it hammer the deeper the screw goes. It does not have lb adjustments like the drills, but you can buy a 2 speed or 3 speed impact driver that will give you more control.

Customer Reviews

M18 1/4 in. Cordless Hex Impact Driver Kit with 1 Battery is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little driver with no compromise on power small, lightweight and compact. compared to the craftsman c3 impact driver which is heavier and less compact .and is harder to move and get around when doing suspension work on a car. the milwaukee is small enough to squeeze through tight areas of a vehicle. lightweight means less fatigue during a job compared to the c3, This milwaukee is smaller but much more powerful. the only cons I can think of is that the driver has only one LED compared to others that have a 3 ring LED's to lessens shadows, and no speed settings like the aforementioned driver. I also like the belt clip and the length of warranty on the tool and the battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful and great deal. I got this for projects at home. It's definitely overkill for my needs, but I thought it was a great deal at $90 bucks for the tool, one battery, charger and case. Would be nice if it had a built in clutch. I ended up buying one of those DeWalt Impact Clutch Tip Holders to use with this and it helps out immensely. Although that thing has some difficulties of its own. I was able to drive about sixty 3.5" screws building my workbench and the battery meter only dropped one bar. It has an LED light that turns on when I squeeze the trigger switch. I suppose I may find that more useful later on the more I use it, but it seems a little strange to me right now. I wish I could just turn it off. It's coming up on summer time (after the May rains) and I've got friends who want to build decks so this is going to come in really handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Your Buck! I'm a technician at The Home Depot and the impact driver is like another limb. I've used all brands of impact drivers that we sell at THD extensively and Milwaukee is simply the best. Allthough this model doesn't compare to the Milwaukee Fuel Combo Kit I bought for black friday, since it was under an Inactive SKU for $89 I jumped right on it. So much lighter and smaller than a conventional cordless drill and much more Torque.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Great Purchase! This impact driver has all the torque you can ask for, and in a lightweight frame. It drives 6-in x 1/2-in lags into treated wood with ease. I use it with all my fastener driving needs. I have craftsman impact drivers, but they don't come close to the torque and lightweight of the Milwaukee. The battery indicator light is a tremendous help when assessing how much work you can get out of it. I am going to purchase additional lithium batteries. I highly recommend this product to anyone both professional or average do-it-yourself-er.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOA Shipping was fast. Price was great. Arrived with a partially charged battery. Driver wouldn't work. Charged battery to full and still wouldn't work. Returning tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a deal you can't beat I'm a Union Carpenter and we have these on the job site. I saw this kit in the store and seriously couldn't get it to the cashier fast enough. I couldn't believe that this kit included the drill, battery, and charger for ONLY $99!!!!! I almost felt like I was getting away with robbery. Milwaukee is a high quality provider of tools, this impact is everything you are looking for. I use it almost daily in my shop at home, it never fails me. It will power through anything in its path. the only drawback that I see is that the kit includes the smaller version of the battery. Which isn't really a big issue, it'll just run out of juice a little more quickly. I also bought one of the larger batteries and keep them on rotation on a busy day in the shop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Milwaukee M18 1/4" cordless hex impact driver This is my first Milwaukee product . I have been borrowing one from the guys at work and got a great deal on this one, I really haven't use it yet but I don't have any worries about it quality and or performance . very efficient and light weight also, battery last for a very long time and unbelievable power. That why I purchased his one and will be purchasing other to come. You cannot go wrong with one of these and know i won't have to return it after I used to borrow one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with purchase Order arrived in less than the estimated delivery date. Used driver to replace fence pickets. Very happy with the driver's power and impact action which was much easier than using a hammer and nails to securely fasten the replacement pickets. Attaching the new pickets took less time than levering off the old pickets and removing the rusty nails. The battery was down to 1 bar after inserting approximately 150 2" inch screws. Recharge was complete in the time I needed to take a work break and remove old pickets from the next section. The only downside comment I have was when working with a 1/2 " driver bit (too short maybe), grease started to ooze from the front of the locking mechanism when the screw was driven flush into the wood. This oozing stopped when I used a longer drill bit.
