This is going to Replace Dewalt
I must say for a 12v this impact driver has way more power than the Dewalt DCF887 888 AND the ATOMIC DCF850 THE three impact driver they only have 3,800 (IPM) My M12FUEL 2553-20 Has 4,000 (IPM) I just love the M12 so I'm going to be selling the three Dewalt 20v impact driver's

    Please help
    Got this tool brand new on facebook and loved it, about a month into using it the condition drastically dropped and the self tapping mode would drive screws straight through, the spring for the chuck popped out and had to be reset, the battery light finally just kept blinking till it completely died even though the battery was almost full charge, the trigger won't go back to its testing position. tried registering it to send it in and couldnt pull up the numbers on it, could someone get in contact with me about repairing the tool or replacing it, I love all your other tools and would hate loosing faith in this awesome tool brand.

      Amazing performance!!
      Milwaukee's M12 FUEL impact driver packs a knock out punch for a 12 volt impact driver. The driver puts out over 1,300 in. lbs of torque to get the job done. The driver is compact in size at only 5.1 inches allowing for easy work in tighter spaces. The tool has a 4 mode drive control feature to give better control depending on the application that it is used for. Three of the modes outputs different RPMs and the fourth self taking screw mode helps to prevent the screw from walking when driving. Combined with a brushless motor and REDLINK PLUS technology, this impact driver is perfect for all your driving applications. I also own the M18 FUEL impact driver and I have to admit, I was quite surprised at the overall performance of this M12 version. When it comes to simple applications of driving screws, this tool has absolutely no issues whatsoever. I always like to test the power of impact drivers by driving in lag screws into solid wood and I used a 7" lag screw and this driver made quick work of driving in the screw all the way. To be honest, it's really an impractical test because I would never use this tool for such an application, but I still like to know that the tool packs a punch with the torque. The driver is compact and I typically use a 6.0 battery and it has great run time with this battery. The tool is well balanced and comfortable in the hands even after all day use. I can't say between the M12 or M18 which one I prefer, both are awesome tools and I have yet to have an instance where either tool failed in what I was working on.

        Great tool for instalations
        Small tool very comfortable in the hand very powerful for the most basics job (not an 18v tool) I love the carrying bag and that have everything in it. I would like that would come with a 2.0 ah or 3.0 ah

        Affordable impact with some power, used for quick change bit ease for automotive, drill bits etc, much lighter weight than midtorque m18 with similar drive speed abd good "snug down" with 4 modes,

        Takes the abuse
        Works great I use it every day as an auto technician my 2450 was getting very worn from 6 years of continuous hard use and this came up on sale for a very good price with a battery. Out powers equivalent snap on and Matco guns at less than half the price
