Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
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 Money to Power ratio I bought this tool along with many others during a promo at Acme Tool. It was a great value compared to other brands I've bought in the past. It has everything you need in an impact for carpentry work out in the field. I would highly recommend Milwaukee over any other brands. They have the largest line of cordless tools in my mind to suit any of your needs. April 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super outil Good tool, no limite, and high torque. April 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Refrigeration Helper The M18 Fuel impact wrench and hex impact driver are great tools for the field of ammonia refrigeration. It's rugged and likes to get dirty. Having batteries that last a long time without recharging is a big plus. The only down side is people badgering me to borrow them. April 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great I really like the different torque settings. You can use this tool on anything from drywall to plumping to basic auto work. I use it just about everyday. April 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Havent had it very long but does everything i need it to do and more Got the m18 drill not fuel version and decided to get the brushless impact because the brushed seems to have more issues. And i didn't need to get another battery because i have an extra from the drill. It works to put together metal shelf's which is why i got it primarily. But i also decided to try taking off lug nuts off a truck and they where put on with a good air impact with not cut off for torque took a couple seconds but took them off i was actually a little surprised wouldn't use this one like that every day. But if tires are put on how there really supposed to be shouldn't have a problem taking them off if needed. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool So far this is my favorite cordless screwgun out of three different brands I have on hand March 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool This tool as many of the other Milwaukee tools I have do what they are meant to do. I have used this quite alot the first few weeks as I am rebuilding my shop and this thing works very well and plenty of power, especially with the big extra heavy duty battery. I would and have recommended it. February 10, 2015
