Has anyone had problems with the tool cutting off? Even on setting #3, it stops impacting until you release the trigger and then press the trigger again. After pressing the trigger again it only impacts for another second or so then cuts off again. Is this a "feature" to save the bolt or the tool? Or am I asking too much from the tool? Would be working in sheet metal or snugging bolts with a lock nut on the other side. Is it really only meant for like light wood work?

Is this worth money

Started looking into this Surge hydraulic driver my only question is from the brushless to this will you lose any juice in the long run is there hydraulic oil etc. or should you stick with just a brushless impact

How would this do for 3 inch tapcons. That's probably the most extreme things I would use it for.

No problem for Tapcons...I use on Tapcons with no issues.

M18 FUEL SURGE 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/4 in. Hex Hydraulic Impact Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this new Surge for a couple of weeks now, on the job as an electrical contractor,... I've been using this new Surge for a couple of weeks now, on the job as an electrical contractor, and I'm loving this impact. Substantially quieter than any other I own, or have ever encountered, yet with the power to get it done. No way to measure it, but I would certainly guess it to be the 50% quieter that Milwaukee claims. Fastening to and boring holes through framing members is my primary use for a 1/4" hex impact driver, so I took some time on the job site yesterday to record some results with some of the fasteners and bits I had handy. I compared the Surge's abilities to the M18 Fuel 2757-20 impact that I've been using since it came out. This is in new spruce, three 2x6's screwed together: Drywall screws: Surge had no problem with up to 4" drywall screws in this spruce. No problem with even a 6", but they are not threaded the entire length, so not sure it would tax it any more than a 4". Self-feeding spade: Surge did a 1/2" with no problem, but went out on overload with an 11/16". The 2757 would do a 1-1/8" - the largest I had - no problem, and with speed. SpeedBor: Surge would do 5/8" no problem, but it would go out on overload when I tried 3/4". The 2757 would do 1" - the largest I had - no problem, with speed. Mode 4 is designed for driving self-tapping screws. All I had handy were some #10x1" Tek screws, so I tried driving those through a 4" square blank cover, which is about 1/16" thick steel. With the trigger wide-open, no feathering, it drove them no problem, without any skating at all. Driving lags is something I do with an impact wrench, not a 1/4" driver, but I had a 3/8"x3" one handy, so I figured I'd try it for this review. With no pilot hole drilled, the Surge would go out on overload when in mode 3 about half the times I tried it. In mode 2, no problem. As you can see, the Surge will handle most fastening applications that a standard impact driver will, while being much quieter. It does not develop near the peak torque that a standard one does, so I do not recommend it for boring holes larger than 1/2" in wood - I will continue to use my M18 Fuel 2757-20 for that task. The Surge will be taking over most all of my fastening needs though, that's for certain. I hope this helps some of you at least somewhat with your purchasing decisions. I switched over to Milwaukee's cordless when the Fuel stuff first started becoming available. I use the tools professionally, and some of them daily - even all day - and have not had one problem with a single one of them. Outstanding tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overhead projects and taks require this light in weight driver/drill...Fuel Surge is perfect This is my very first ever 1/4-inch hex driver and prior to this I had a 20 year old 1/4-inch keyed chuck variation which was showing both it's age and design flaws. Not only was my old cordless driver huge in size but over twice in weight. Differences between brushless and brush type designs, NiCad versus Lithium-Ion, and finally 12-volt versus 18-volt comparisons are amazing. I simply cannot find any flaw with this Milwaukee Surge driver/drill. This driver comes with a belt clip which I can finally put to use since it will no longer pull my pants down compared to my old 12-year old Porter Cable driver/drill. Same Drill also has a clip to store a spare hex bit. I especially like the Milwaukee M18 battery strategy whereby these M18 batteries and charging systems are manufactured to support over 125+ newly released cordless power tools ,cordless lighting, with more ingenious products coming out daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for self tapping screws I drive self tapping screws all day, everyday and this tool is great for that. I haven't broken the head off of one of them with it. I'm not sure how the self-tapping setting knows what's going on with thw fasteners...but it's pretty magical.

If you are bothered by the noise of the typical impact driver, than this is a game changer! Much lower noise level and the surge (impact) noise is more like dull thuds than sharp bangs. The internet videos do not do it justice, you have to experience the difference for yourself. Plus, I find there is more precise control compared to a typical impact driver when finishing smaller fasteners into wood, especially in speed #2. Also, very little to no kickback as opposed to another (orange) oil impulse driver I have used, which makes this driver less fatiguing and easier to control overall. Very well balanced with the 2.0 Red Lithium battery, so far. I am a DIYer and feel this tool is appropriate if you like to work with the best. I have owned my M18 Fuel Surge for about two months and would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 1/4" impact I've used I have a few different impact drivers in both 12v and 18/20v. Many have much higher advertised torque ratings than the SURGE, however this thing delivers! I mainly use impact drivers to drive screws and the occasional lag bolt. I recently put this through it's paces building and hanging a ton of shop fixtures. Here are my observations about this tool First it's super quiet. I expected it to be quieter, but not as quiet as it actually is. This is very welcomed since I do most of my work later in the evenings. The difference between this and the standard M12 or M18 driver is night and day The power is all there. As I mentioned I was a little put off by the advertised torque being lower than other drivers - significantly in some cases. However torque figures are advertised at their max developed - which during actual use are achieved very infrequently. This tool is impressively smooth. No surges (other then the name of course) and no lulls. Very even and controllable power. I drove about 120 3.5" drywall screws through plywood into studs with no pilot holes. No issues at all and I never wished for more power Very little vibration. This is another huge win for me. I work in the cold a lot. Cold + vibration makes my hands cramp up. That. combined with the small form factor and great ergonomics makes this a joy to use The speed selection is awesome. My major complaint with the Dewalt is it's either too slow and stalls out, or too fast and strips out bits or screw heads when things get tough. This has 4 speed selections and I've found I rarely need to go above "2", with screws, and "3" takes care of 3/8" lag bolts no problem, It's brushless so battery life is great. I have 2ah, 5ah and 9ah M18 batteries. The 9ah is overkill for this, but the 5ah fits well. I tend to use the 2ah most because it's the lightest and even after a ton of work I still had half a charge. The fact that the torque curve is so smooth and even makes this my go-to 1/4" impact. It's really something you need to experience to appreciate. Very highly recommended

As a tradesman with 50+ years in construction I obviously take driving screws seriously as since impact drivers I t has become the fastest/strongest way to fasten and makes setting custom home door jambs etc. a breeze. Over the last ten years impact drivers are likely one of the tradesman's most used and valuable tools making it very much worth keeping up on the technological advances due to the intense competition at the top. Up until the surge came along I was a Makita guy. I likely would be a Panasonic user but they like the Festool folks aren't interested in hitting a price point that aligns with income of the average tradesman. The Makita has been the fastest driver and blew my original M18 driver away when it came to speed. That was before the Surge. This tool shows Milwaukee 's willingness to stay in the game. So far (one week) the tool is very impressive albeit one hiccup.. It quit working yesterday after one week. I have still not determined if it was lack of amperage in an older battery or a dead spot in the reversing switch or battery contact, but it is definitely something I'm concerned about because I had the same issue with a brand new Makita brushless as well. Have not yet decided whether to take it back.. But it is disconcerting..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic tool I have just received this tool and just recently tried it out. So far I was extremely happy with it's performance. I've had an impact for several years and was quite happy with it until I got the Milwaukee Surge. It has 4 speeds the lowest for driving screws without over torquing them. And the highest for using self tapping screws in metal, or maybe for driving those blue concrete screws into concrete. Also love the hook on the side for hanging it on your belt or pocket until you're ready to use it. It's also light weight and balanced well so it's not awkward to use. Plenty of power for any job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! This is a great tool! The hydraulic operation is significantly different than the standard impact driver. It feels softer and operates quieter. That said, my favorite feature about this tool is actually the various power level settings. Not all impact drivers have this level of control and its easy to over drive a screw in certain situations. Having the ability to select the power level is very handy. The tool is well balanced and comfortable to operation. Overall, I would definitely recommend this.
