Customer Questions & Answers

Can this drill do it all?

I am a new home owner with a lot of fixing up to do. I want to get one drill that will last a long time. I know that this drill holds its own for larger projects. Is this drill overkill for smaller projects like hanging blinds and your day to day needs? Do I need an impact driver and a standard drill or will this do it all?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have both and you shoud too. No one tool can do it all. As you gain more skills your desire to do larger and more complex projects will increase. But an impact driver with more than 2 speeds and a hex head drill bit set will do so much more & faster. Great to have in the line up. Spend the $$ and get a good one, don't forget at least 1 extra battery.

does it really matter on the amperage of the tool itself

Asked by: Anonymous
One assumes you mean on an electric motor. I would guess this has been answered ad nausea. Amps times Volts = Watts. Divide by 745 (or so) and you get HP. But then you need to know efficiency and things like that. So Amperage gives you a general idea of how strong a motor you are dealing with (depending on Volts).

Which batteries do you get?

The picture show the standard batteries, but the specification sheet says two lithium XC batteries come with this purchase. Anyone buy this drill and get the XC batteries?

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver Compact Battery Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 198.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tool! This thing is amazing! I bought it to drive purlin screws and WOW this thing can drive a screw! The first time I hit the trigger my Dad said "holy cow!". Then a buddy of mine came over to help and he ended up using it and after the first pull of the trigger he said "holy cow!" too! They are both Carpenters by trade and have other brands so impacts on a regular basis. We drove screws all day and the Fuel driver just kept driving whereas the other brand driver we were using went though 2 batteries driving the same number and type of screws. All in all a great buy. Just be careful you don't bump the mode button as it will go from max power to the low setting and act as if the battery is going dead. This only happened once and we were hooking it to steel trusses as we set the purlins so it could have been bumped when hooking it the a truss. Having said that the 3 mode drive is a very nice feature. I think mode 2 will work perfect to drive the screws for metal siding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only impact driver with useful speed/torque combination settings Initially my choice was going to be between these two models: Bosch IDH182-02: - Confidence in the Bosch brand - I already have the 12 volt PS31 cordless drill and I am very satisfied with it. - 3 LED (so no shading) - The ability to use a socket directly without having to use a 3/8 or 1/2 adapter. Dewalt DCF895M2: - Confidence in the Dewalt brand - I already have a Dewalt cordless drill which I'm relatively happy with. - 3 LED (so no shading) - Very small head (smaller than the Bosch and Milwaukee) - New one hand chuck system that seems effective - Accepts 1-inch bits - Plastic case (versus a fabric case for the Bosch) - High-capacity batteries - Less expensive than the Bosch and the Milwaukee But finally I chose Milwaukee. And yet ... - It has only one single LED and it makes a lot of shade. - His head is longer than the Dewalt. - It does not accept 1-inch bits (yes, but you must remove them with pliers). - The chuck is slippery if you do not use gloves. So why have I chosen the Milwaukee M18 Fuel? Because it is the only one in the three which has 1st and 2nd speed/torque settings that make actual sense!!! Bosch's settings are not optimal for use in various applications and those of the Dewalt are completely useless. According to manufacturers specs ... Milwaukee: 1) 200 in-lbs / 0-850 RPM (JUST PERFECT for light work like screwing cabinet handles, door handles, or for furniture assembly, it is the setting that I use ) 2) 700 in-lbs / 0-2100 RPM (USEFUL) 3) 1600 in-lbs / 0-2900 RPM (VERY POWERFUL AND FAST, perfect for heavy work) Bosch: 1) 400 in-lbs / 0-1300 RPM (TOO MUCH TORQUE AND TOO FAST for light applications) 2) 900 in-lbs / 0-2000 RPM (A BIT TOO MUCH TORQUE for medium load applications) 3) 1650 in-lbs / 0-2800 RPM Dewalt: 1) 500 in-lbs / 0-950 RPM (WAY TOO MUCH TORQUE for light applications!!!) 2) 900 in-lbs / 0-1900 RPM (A BIT TOO MUCH TORQUE for medium load applications) 3) 1500 in-lbs / 0-2850 RPM With its right on the spot settings the Miwaukee M18 Fuel is a very versatile tool. I just had purchase a bit before the Dewalt 8-Volt Max Gyroscopic Screwdriver and I returned it after purchasing the Milwaukee 3-speed impact driver. Although I liked the Dewalt a lot, very good construction, gyro system easy to use and very effective (super accurate!) I returned it because with the slowest/less torque setting #1 on my new Milwaukee I feel I didn't need the Dewalt screwdriver anymore. The Dewalt is an excellent product, it is much smaller and lighter than my impact Milwaukee and the clutch allows for very light work that are difficult or impossible with the Milwaukee impact. For example, Dewalt with the clutch # 1 setting I could screw switch plates and electrical outlets plates without cracking the plastic, it was really convenient. If one day I have to do very light work repeatedly, I would not hesitate to buy again the Dewalt 8v Max Gyro. I do write very light work, as the Dewalt has very little torque, even not enough with the clutch at # 15 torque setting to fully screw a door handle. For this app I had to lock the clutch at the MAX setting or torque it by hand. And the top speed of the Dewalt is very low, too low for me. So for the time being, I thought having the Dewalt screwdriver and the Milwaukee impact driver was too much. So the Milwaukee M18 Fuel impact driver is an exceptional product and I highly recommend it. Now the engineers at Milwaukee should work to incorporate a 3 LED ring and a 1-inch bits friendly hex chuck. Oh and a smaller case, like the Dewalt, because there's a lot of unusable lost space inside the actual Milwaukee case

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!! While I only bought this a couple of weeks ago i can honestly say that this impact drill works great, I have used it as a regular driver and it is deffinitly very precise, it also comes in handy when securing heavy equipment in tight spaces where the light compact size has been a life saver

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tougher than nails! I am a journeyman Industrial electrician, most of my work is outside And I count on my power tools to work in some of the worst weather. Milwaukee m18 tool line is the only tool line that I can say works in the cold, wet, hot without any problems. I was already impressed with the m18 line up before I purchased the fuel impact, now I'm proud to show up to work with the leaders in power tool technology in my tool box. The fuel impact driver is perfect for driving heavy lag screws aswell assembling very delicate parts, the battery runs for a while even the small non xc. The tool is light well balanced with lots of speed and torque to spare, I would recommend this line to any of my fellow tradesmen, aswell as anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality There is alot of technology packed in to this little impact driver, I highly recomend this tool to anyone for any job, It is very and I mean VERY powerful and yet still small enough to slip right in my tool pouch, BUY IT!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Versitile Impact Driver!!!! They got it right on this one- MUCH better size compared to M18 impact, better torque AND ultimate versatility!!! LED light is better, but would eventually like to see something similar to the DeWalt BL lights. Other than that, this is absolutely awesome!! Replaces the need for M12 screwdriver and impact, as they would be similar to the first two speeds. Wow- very impressed!!! They even improved the chuck to a one handed design- finally!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the "work" ... out of work I have been training by teenage boys the construction business. Driving screws in and out always seemed to be a challenge for them (not to mention they reamed out so many screw heads it ain't even funny). I bought this M18 Fuel Impact driver and it literally solved the problem. They no longer have difficulty with screws (no matter how long they are) and that saves me time and money. Now I can get back to being productive instead of fixing the screws they "screwed" up. ...Love it! Couldn't live without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use on the farm I'm very impressed with the power and the three speed settings. I use this on the farm 3-5 times per week. And I very rarely find myself under powered. I use a 1/4" hex to 1/2" drive adapter almost exclusively although I have used this tool with #2 Phillips and 25 Torx. I have broken one 1/2" adapter after very heavy use. This tool is great for my needs. Looking forward to the long motor life this brushless motor. Milwaukee makes great cordless tools.
