Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good but not perfect Had this model for the last 5 months and it has been pretty solid. I have combined it with the 4.0 Amp battery and it is very dependable. Although one thing I noticed (as mentioned from other reviews on other sites) the "Control Switch" (Forward/Reverse switch) is in a bad location (very annoying). Many times I have hit the reverse with my grip, at a certain angle. Milwaukee should have had their Engineers look into this design a little more thoroughly. Other than that I would have given 5 stars for it's durability. Although the Engineers fell short on the Control Switch location. Nevertheless, I would Recommend. October 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Comparison This gun is the best impact driver on the market today. I have seen many other impact guns in my time spent on construction sites and nothing has ever come close. People see how well it works and say the same thing almost every time (gotta put that on my wish list!). It is a little expensive but it is the best money you will ever spend on impact gun. The excellent quality and state of the art craftsmanship speaks for it self. If you don't know its because you haven't tried it yet.. August 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awsome tool love it and rec to anyone I am a mechanic, I use this tool daily and find absolutely no faults, I would rec this tool to anyone ! in fact I will buy the whole set 1 piece at a time. I have matco cordless impacts and they are not even close to performing like the Milwaukee. im very happy with this impact August 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mechanics new best friend I normally do not give products 5 stars because I always find a fault with them (I am a mechanical engineer and certified Master Mechanic). But this tool is great. You would have to defy the laws of physics and chemistry to improve it. What do I mean by that? For it's size and weight the torque output is fantastic. I thought this thing was a gimmick tool that came with the set I purchased but it has real power to take cars and engines apart in no time. I have used it all day with one extended size battery to take my engines down. It gives full torque until the internal sensor picks up a voltage drop then it simply quits. No ambiguity on when to change out the battery. They charge very quickly as well compared to old NiCd batteries. An hour and you are good to go again or just swap on another and you never have downtime. I don't know that I could kill a battery in an hour with this tool. I would let them cool a little between heavy use and charging to extend life but I have never felt them get hot with continuous on/off usage over 4 hours. It was breaking M10 fasteners no problem when I removed the front clip from a truck. It will struggle with heads larger than a half inch but there are plenty of engine fasteners smaller than that. Buy the hex to 1/4" and 3/8" adapters and you will never be happier. Make sure your nuts and bolts are lubed or this might just snap your work, I was surprised. Again at first glance I thought the little white LED was cheesy but it has come in very handy. If you work in poor lighting or under a car where it might be a little dark it is a very handy feature to have. I have talked with the professional mechanics at work (I work for a major vehicle OEM) and they love these too. They turned me on to them and this has become a staple in my car hobby and engine rebuilding. I have dropped it off a car fender on to concrete, no problems! Five stars Milwaukee. November 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Sweet.kicks my M18 1/4" into the grave... now Fuel The M18 Fuel is Strong and very smooth...when I check on the battery at lunch its still good to go !! July 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I would buy another I use this impact gun every day. It is nice and compact to fit into tight spaces, and works great. Fits in my hand great and has enough power for the toughest jobs. July 5, 2015
