Customer Questions & Answers

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
Asked by: Nick
It does not have the peak torque that the standard Fuel impact has, but it sustains it's torque throughout the drive. It will drive shorter drywall screws right through 2x spruce stock if you want it to, but will often go out on overload once you get to say 4" screws. If you need to drive long and/or large fasteners, stick with the standard. If you need to use an impact where making a racket is an issue, go Surge.

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

Asked by: Brian
Don't know if this helps, I used surge with 6" spax bolts for wood and it didn't have any issues.

M18 FUEL SURGE 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/4 in. Hex Hydraulic Impact Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
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 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 Awesome power I tested this tool while installing closet shelves and rods, which I affixed to studs. This required a lot of power, and I came away very impressed by the M18 Fuel Surge Impact Driver. It has four power settings: 900RPM, 2100RPM, 3000RPM, and sheetmetal (which I didn't test). You can also vary the RPM using the trigger, of course. I found that the 900RPM setting just didn't drive hard enough to work into the studs (it would slow down and try to impact the big wood screws I used, at about 20RPM or so - not effective). The 3000RPM setting was way too fast, as it drove the screws in so fast I ended up stripping them before I could let go of the trigger. The 2100RPM setting was close to perfect for driving into studs, but I wish there were a 1500RPM setting, which might have been a bit easier to control and would still have enough speed to drive all the way in without slowing to a crawl. I also tested this briefly with special Milwaukee impact-rated hex-shank drill bits I bought for it (Model # 48-89-4630). I wasn't quite as convinced it was better than my standard, less powerful 12V drill for this purpose. The impact action didn't seem quite as effective for drilling, although it's not like the driver didn't work. I'm just not sure it works better. The one thing I did like about drilling with this driver is that the hex shank meant that under no circumstances would the drill bit slip, which round-shank bits can when they get stuck. Note that you can't use standard round-shank drill bits with this hex impact driver. I tested this with Milwaukee's M18 XC5.0 pack, and you can buy this driver in a full kit with two of these batteries and a charger (Model # 2760-22). You can also buy it with two M18 XC2.0 packs (Model #2760-22CT), which provides a more compact weight and feel. While using the M18 Fuel Surge driver with an XC5.0 pack didn't bother me most of the time, if you're working in tighter areas or overhead, the extra weight could become noticeable. I drove a total of about a 15 screws, some 2.5" long into studs, and the battery meter on the XC5.0 didn't drop down from four bars, so for smaller jobs, the lighter XC2.0 pack would probably be more than adequate. While this driver definitely impressed me with its power, on its own, I do have to question its value, as the full kits are a much better deal assuming you don't already have M18 batteries. One last note - this does not come with driver bits. I used a bit plus magnetic extension from another company, which worked OK, but if I were to do it over again, I might try Milwaukee's one-piece extension bit (Model # 48-32-4602), as I found my bit popping out of its magnetic extension when screws were driven fully in. You can, however, go with Milwaukee's more versatile "variety pack", which uses a magnetic extension piece (Model # 48-32-4008).

It does deliver smoother operations and quieter noise level. The noise level was my main concern when buying it. I have been using Ridgid Gen5x impact wrench and I was getting annoyed with noise level from the tool. Especially when working in tight spaces. This impact driver operates different than what I have been used to. The impact motion is more consistent and continues. Power wise, well, so far I didn't see difference between milwaukee 2753-20 and surge when using 4" and smaller. Size wise, it is almost the same as the 2753-20. The surge is shorter than 2753-20

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 Quiet, powerful, compact - another great tool from Milwaukee This is one of those tools I knew I could use, but didn't really need, or so I thought. Turns out I had been putting off some projects for lack of sufficient tools to do the job, and this fit the bill. It's incredibly compact, the head is shorter than even the most compact drill I've used. And yet it's powerful, removing the most stubborn of bolts that even a hammer drill couldn't budge. And for all that power, it's quiet, for an impact driver at least, its a whisper compared to the other impact drivers I've used in the past. Milwaukee makes great products, I have dozens of tools from them and have never been disappointed, this just continues the trend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Hex Tool for Driving Screws and Bolts Milwaukee M18 FUEL SURGE 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 1/4 in. Hex Hydraulic Impact Driver (Tool-Only) is a great tool for fastening bolts and driving screws. I found it a nice alternative to using a standard drill. It has a hex opening which accepts screw bits and socket extensions. When running it uses a hammer impact force to start and drive the fasteners in. Once you use an impact driver you don't want to use a drill again for screws. Its quick and agile. Doesn't need a lot of force with you pushing against an ordinary drill to get the bit not to strip the screw head. With the driver you just put a normal amount of force against the screw head and the hex impact driver does the rest. This is possible because of the variable speed trigger and the torque control panel on the front of the driver that has several settings to limit it. You control the torque by how long you are using the driver combined with the control panel setting. The longer you drive the more torque is applied to the screw or bolt, the tighter it goes in. It also includes a setting for self-tapping sheet metal screws. Another advantage is the noise reduction if you are using it all day long. Milwaukee states it cuts the noise in half and reduces vibration in your hands by two thirds which can be felt. You can feel it and hear it the first time you don't get the drill's loud whine. The noise reduction comes from the hydraulics which uses oil instead of metal on metal banging away. It produces a different continuous force which is actually quicker for doing most woodworking jobs. All this combined with a lighter weight, only two pounds for the bare tool, than a standard drill, smaller and more comfortable to use, too. I used mine with a Fuel 5.0 Ah battery pack that lasted all day using it on and off, no problems. This is why I now prefer it to my standard drill for this work. Its going in my tool bag for sure and the one I'll first be reaching to use. .
