Turn lug nuts, lag bolts or screws easily with this 18 volt device featuring POWERSTATE brushless motor ingenuity that fosters longer, cooler operation and prolongs tool life. Weighing just 3.6 lbs. and capable of 3600 IPM, take this 5-1/2 in.-long machine into cramped spaces and turn it loose.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Design flaw I've bought this after seeing some very good reviews online. The machine is very powerful, has good grip and I appreciate it is very compact and can work in tight places. What I don't appreciate is that is noisy. But I use it to screw in to metal all day long and that's where it goes all wrong. The electronics inside are exposed and apparently metal shavings from screwing can get easily inside and short-circuit the electronic board. You can actually see the electronics trough the vents in casing. And on top of this, the kind of fault resulted in this situation is not covered by warranty. Mine stopped working after two days of use, and when that happens you are left with a very expensive, useless paper weight. January 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool so far! Bought a competitors model which didn't last 6 months. So, I decided to try this product and have been very pleased with the quality and durability of it. My chief complaint is the screw keeps coming loose on the belt hanger, and in my job, I don't have the time to keep tightening this down!! Find a different means to put this thing on, so it stays on!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool for building a deck I recently built a 30 x 20 ft deck addition on my house and purchased a Milwaukee brushless impact driver with XC batteries for the project. The deck was built on 6x6 posts in concrete and 2x6 pressure treated wood for the decking to match the existing deck. I drove about 1200 3 inch screws, , approx 50 4 inch lag bolts, and 200 smaller screws. The driver was very comfortable to use and easily drove all fasteners. I did not run the batteries completely, but usually switched batteries when the last indicator was still visible. The tool fits my hand very well and although the motor became warm, it wasn't uncomfortable. I have a number of other milwaukee tools and this one is highly recommended. December 25, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful,Light weight, Long battery life I bought this impact driver to replace my Milwaukee 1 st generation lithium v18 driver. As a finish contractor I have tried many different cordless tools and decided to stay with Milwaukee. After a first charge overnight, I have used it on three half day projects doing facia replacement and installing steel conduit and metal boxes. The battery is still showing a full charge. I am so pleased of the overall proformance of the M18. I am switching over to brushless as they become available. Four stars, I wish this was made in USA. March 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mechanics dream all they guys in my shop are impressed as I am that a "1/4" " impact can take LUG NUTS off a car! Not only does it handle the Toyotas at 76 ftlbs of tourque but it has taken off several truck lugnut that are tourqed to 150 foot pounds ! I have been experimenting with how many ways I can use it on an automobile and so far it is nearly as usefull as a 3/8" air ratchet ! gotta love this tool , no way my 3/8 air ratchet is gonna take off lugnuts from a tire!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thing is awesome I bought this after falling in love with the 18v fuel hammer drill. This thing drives cement board screws through Hardie backer into hardwood so fast I can barely see it. It is so light too. May 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My new favorite toy. I mean tool I am a union glazier and use a impact everyday. So its important to have something that has the precision to install hinge screws and powerful enough to anchor bolts for wind shear on curtain wall. August 3, 2012
