About This Product

The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 3/8 in. Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/Friction Ring Kit delivers the best power to weight ratio, most access in tight spaces and faster removal speed. It provides 600 ft-lbs. of nut-busting torque and only weighs 5.0 lbs., making it extremely versatile, capable of performing a wide variety of applications. Its POWERSTATE Brushless Motor generates the power needed to quickly perform many tasks, such as removing large bolts or lug nuts. This cordless impact wrench is the most compact in its class, giving users access to stubborn fasteners in spaces where larger impact wrenches can't fit without needing to disassemble components to reach bolts. Tri-LEDs surround the anvil to deliver brighter light with fewer shadows. 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL offers greater precision with a range of pre-set RPM and IPM levels, selectable from a single button on the tool. By selecting Mode 4, AUTO SHUT-OFF control applies no more than 35 ft-lbs. of torque for hand-tight fastening applications to prevent overtightening. Mode 4 also features Bolt Removal Control that delivers users full torque output, then decreases RPMs once the bolt is loosened to prevent fastener drops. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence ensures maximum performance, protecting the tool against overloads, over-heating and over-discharge. This kit includes (1) M18 FUEL 3/8 in. Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/Friction Ring, (2) M18 REDLITHIUM 5.0Ah Resistant Batteries, (1) M12/M18 Charger and a carrying case.

    Q:As a DIY guy, I'm more concerned about slow speed control as opposed to how fast a driver can set a screw. Compared to the Surge, does the 2953 offer comparable slow speed control when driving screws into wood? Better than the 2853?

        Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver (Tool-Only)
        Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver (Tool-Only) review: This is the latest development of the famous Milwaukee impact driver. They have moved the single light from in front and above the trigger to three (3) lights surrounding the collet - and that makes viewing the screw and target wood so easy and clear! What a tremendous improvement of the use of this fabulous tool! Yes! No more shadows on the target area! I just love, as in previous versions of this tool, how you can select the driving and impact ferocity by pushing a button on the tool. This is the best impact driver I have ever used. It is brushless - yes. It is also quite small and powerful. Actually, this makes a great drill in speed selection 1 - I use it frequently to drive pilot holes with Milwaukee hex shank titanium drill bits and then pop out the drill bit and insert a screw driving bit. So easy. Yes, this is a tool you want in your arsenal even if you only use it occasionally. This is a tool that just WORKS. Love it. There ya go!

        Great. Powerful Well Designed Super Handy Versatile Impact Driver
        Balanced good sized easy to handle- everything it needs to be. More than expected for a quarter inch impact driver. M18 power is my favorite; lasting, quick charging- versatile for a variety of tasks. Compact design fits hand, good grip allows control- keeping driver centered & aligned while applying pressure. Great for DIY use. Trigger control is precise, allowing feathering, especially effective on screws, or hammering, when needed. Used for several DIY tasks & Milwaukee’s Model 2953-20 performed excellent and is easy to use. Easily loosened rusted bolts allowing quick adjustment roller on boat trailer. The ¼” brushless motor has plenty of power and easily removed 3” corroded screws from PT stair treads for a low cost repair. Made disassembling hammock stand super easy & quick. Will be great for use on small engines & equipment. Satisfied with another handy powerful Milwaukee M18 tool. Highly recommend.

        Compact, with plenty of torque
        I have several Milwaukee M18 system power tools and I’ve had good success with each one. This 1/4-inch-hex impact driver is my latest acquisition. The main reason I got it was to be able to drive screws in spaces with not much clearance. I’ve used it to drive screws for a countertop installation, used it to install window blinds, and used it to remove bolts while disassembling a suspended ceiling. A fully charged M18 battery powers the driver for a long time. It has plenty of torque and the ability to select between three maximum speeds (1700, 3000, 3900 RPM) is very helpful. I have not yet used the self-tapping screw mode that is intended for driving screws in sheet metal. The three LED lamps on the driver provide excellent illumination of my work area. Driver was made in Vietnam.

        Powerful compact 18V impact driver
        This is a powerful, compact impact driver. If you already own some Milwaukee M18 batteries, this tool-only driver is a relatively inexpensive option to get a powerful brushless impact driver. This impact driver has a lot of torque, with 4 speeds to improve control. However, I also own the Milwaukee "Surge" Impact Driver, and find that the speed on this non-surge model is quite a bit faster. On setting 2, this impact driver requires quite a bit more finesse and trigger control, as it drives much faster than the Surge model. If you are regularly working with long screws or bolts, the extra speed of this model will be nice. This driver is a "traditional" style impact driver with an anvil design. While it's simple and reliable, it is extremely loud compared to the Surge model. If you don't mind the noise, this model is less expensive, but if you need a quieter impact driver, I would recommend the Milwaukee Surge driver, which is much quieter and I think is easier to control. One very nice feature of this new model is the 3 lights on the front edge of the driver. All of my other cordless tools only have a single light, which always casts a shadow. The 3 lights on this driver completely illuminate the work area and are very bright. I really like the large tool hook that is included with the M18 cordless tools. They work great and make it easy to hang the tool on a belt or pocket, but they don't get in the way. This tool uses the Milwaukee M18 Lithium batteries, and given how compact and relatively light this tool is, I prefer the smaller M18 2.0 size batteries. If you don't need hours of run time, the 2.0 size batteries make this driver well balanced and easy to handle.

        Loaded with features in such a compact tool
        I have the Milwaukee 2nd generation impact driver and it is still serving me well. I went with this 4th generation (2953-20) for the improved lighting (Tri-LEDs) and the improved speed control. The bonus for me was a more compact tool. This matters to me for tight spaces for vehicle work I do. The 2953-20 performs considerably better than my 2nd generation. I like the added tether hook for tethering the tool when working at heights, and improved belt clip which allows the driver to clip onto my tool bag a lot better. The improved 3 LED lights get light on the work regardless what angle I have the driver set to the work. The power is everything I expect from an impact driver, but the power/torque is so versatile thanks to the button selection speed control and responsive trigger. This driver has no trouble driving 1/2-inch X 6-inch wood lag screws into wood posts but has the ability to drive sheet metal screws without stripping them out. Trigger response is great and easy to control variable speed for starting screws. I did not experience the driver getting very hot even when driving the dozen 1/2-inch lag screws.

        Compact, with a very slick self tapping screw mode
        This impact driver presents a number of significant improvements over an earlier M18 (2757-20) impact driver. 1. It is more compact, shorter by 3/4” and just a bit fatter. This is really nice when you need to drive something in a confined space. 2. Three speed ranges 3. The LED lighting now has three lights and they are all positioned radially around the driver, resulting in excellent illumination on the fastener 4. There is a new special self-tapping screw mode in which the driver automatically shuts off when the screw gets to its hilt. It is very easy to use too, select the mode and then just pull the trigger for full power. It magically stops when the screw is done. The trigger control of the speed is very nice and easy to control, very responsive. There is a belt clip attached, which can be removed if not needed. An all round, excellent tool, well designed and great quality. Tool made in Vietnam, belt clip made in China

        A Very Useful Tool
        Milwaukee…. M18 FUEL 18V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless ¼ in. Hex Impact Driver, the brushless motor produces 3900 RPM max and 2000 in. lbs. of torque, this tool is very powerful and the variable speed trigger and the 4 mode drive make it easy to use, it weighs only 2.2 lbs. and approximately 3.8 lbs. with a battery, it has a comfortable grip and is well balanced, I love the three LED work lights they really light up a big area, I like the Hex Bit technology and the ¼ in. hex chuck (collet) makes it easy to remove and replace a bit, there are tons of ¼ in. hex bits available, I use my impact driver daily driving screws, fastening nuts and bolts, and it is compatible with all M18 batteries and chargers, this is a great tool.

        A Professional Grade Cordless Hex Impact Driver
        This Milwaukee ¼” is a very fast and powerful hex impact driver. It uses the M-18 batteries, which allow me to interchange batteries with my other Milwaukee tools. It has very controllable trigger and has four selectable speed modes. The first three modes range from 1700 rpm up to 3900 rpm. The last one is designed for using self-tapping screws in sheet metal. It looks like this will be a real advantage, as it initially spins fast to keep the screw from walking, but shuts the tool off when the fastener is fully seated, eliminating the chance of breaking or stripping out the screws or holes. This tool comes with an attached belt clip that can be easily removed, and has a ¼” quick connect chuck as well as 3 LED’s to light up the work area. Overall I am extremely satisfied and would definitely recommend it.

        Great 1/4” impact driver
        I have been looking for a 1/4” impact driver for carpentry and auto mechanical work, and this Milwaukee impact driver ticks off most of the boxes for what I need one for. I have a 1/2” impact driver, but it is too big for working in tight areas, and too heavy to work with all day. Ditto my 3/8” impact driver. The Milwaukee has hex drive with one handed insertion. For my first project I used it to frame up a rolling storage cabinet and install a couple of large drawers in it. I repurpose wood and plywood in my projects, and this wood is usually well seasoned and harder than new wood. The wood I was working with on my test drive of this impact tool was over thirty years old. The Milwaukee Impact driver handled the hex bit tools for pocket screw prep and insertion, installation of drawer slides, and the fabrication and installation of the cabinet with ease. When the hex bit tools first came out on the market there weren’t many options available, but today there are many different tools available today. The battery held up all day, and finished with juice to spare. I like it.
