About This Product

The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 3/8 in. Mid-Torque Impact Wrench with Friction Ring 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. The M18 REDLITHIUM battery pack (not included) fits M18 tools, delivering more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack.

      Q:If your using it for lug nuts. Whats the recommended modes for loosening and tightening the lug nuts. I don't want to snap a lug trying for the first time. My impact is on order so I hope to get some feed back.

      Answer This Question

      A:  3 or 4 for loosening.  You should only snug them tight..  no rattling the lug nuts down.  Wheels should be torqued to spec. There are torque sticks that can be used in combination if you don’t have a torque wrench

        Power Needed for High Demand Applications
        I needed a High Output Battery for the new M18 FUEL Brushless Blower 3017-20 I got to replace my gas blower. The 48-59-1880 Kit comes with a M18 High Output XC8.0 REDLITHIUM CPU controlled battery and a CPU controlled RAPIDCHARGE Dual Voltage M18/M12 CPU Charger. The batteries can be recharged at any time without worrying about memory effects. The High Output M18 XC8.0 battery works longer and runs cooler with high demand applications like shop vacs and blowers. Just what I needed.

          Quick charge, then last a long time
          Got my new M18 AH 8.0 battery with the minimal charge they all come with. Placed it on the rapid charger and walked away, figuring it would take at least a couple hours to get to full charge. About 70 mins later I walked past and thought I would see how it was doing..it was done! I placed this on my Milwaukee 18 inch fan and it ran all day long. Most my power tools I seldom run out of power during a days work, but now I don’t even really need to think about it.

            Takes my 350 lug nuts off in 2 seconds
            Really great impact, on the pricier side but definitely worth it. My main and only complaint is with Home Depot. When delivering, the box was not in a second cardboard box making it very obvious I had a $250 tool on my apartment porch for 6+ hours until I got home. We have a lot of package thefts at my apartment so I had a lot of anxiety at work praying it wouldn’t get stolen. Light on impact was also much brighter than I had expected, illuminating my entire room at night

              Dependable and Enduring
              After the first charge subsequent charges seem a bit quicker even when the battery is completely empty. This is a big battery pack runs for a long time. It's hard to give a definitive time because different tools use different power.

                impressive!
                This 3/8” gen 2 mid-torque is amazing. Takes lug nuts off my Honda civic no problem. This thing has more than enough power and torque for a 3/8” impact wrench.

                  Thrilled with the purchase. Ordered it from another source but they couldn't give me a firm delivery date. Checked Home Depot and the website said it would be here in four days - the Milwaukee Impact 2960-20 hit my door step a full day earlier than quoted. Which makes it delivered three days EARLIER than the other source stated they would get back to me with a delivery date. Home Deport - same price and the delivery charges may have been cheaper than the other guys. The tool - did a quick test - lug nuts on my Mini Cooper S Superchaged. Took those lugs off like they were butter. The compact size and weight is a big reason why I spent the extra money and wait time. Worth it on both counts. Working is smaller engine compartments the smaller physical size is perfect. Working in a home shop where the car is NOT up on a lift but on jack-stands means the lighter weight and smaller physical size will allow me to do more with this tool. And I can break loose stubborn bolts without the need to drag and air hose around or have a loud compressor kick on every few minutes.

                    The Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion HIGH OUTPUT Starter Kit with the XC8.0Ah battery and charger is a great starter kit whether you are building your own set of Milwaukee M18 cordless tools, or adding an additional battery to an existing set or single kit. The 8.0Ah battery is a good size and offers plenty of power, 50% as advertised over the 5.0ah as well as running 50% cooler and giving 60% longer run time. Although I have no measuring equipment to verify this, just using it I believe it. The 8.0 was great to use in a recent project I had for work, I was cutting decorative beams out of a large craftsman home to replace because they were rotted, and used my Milwaukee M18 Sawzall. The first day I used a 4.0Ah battery and although it did a good job it predictable needed a swap and to be charged. However the second and third day I used the XC8.0 and from a full charge it lasted both days with a charge leftover, and felt more powerful to use while I used it. Eventually I'll phase out all my smaller batteries from the larger cordless tools. I plan on replacing them with the XC8.0 because of how well it performs. Consider this kit if you need an M18 battery for personal or professional use.

                    If you have bought a Milwaukee M18 bare tool with no battery or charger then you need a starter kit like this one. It gets you an M18 High Output 8 Amp Hour lithium ion battery and the rapid charger that charges both the M18 batteries as well as the M12 batteries. This 8 AH battery is large and heavy but will provide power for much longer periods than the smaller M18 batteries. I can tell you that you won't want to use this in any tool that you need reach up above your shoulders to use. However if you use it in stationary or tools that don't require a lot of reaching or lifting then it will last, last and last all day long. I weighed and measured my other M18 batteries and they are M18 CP 2.0 AH, 3.1 x 4.6 x 2.18 in., 15.2 oz., M18 XC 5.0 AH, 3.1 x 4.6 x 2.95 in., 1 Lb. 9.7oz., (this battery) M18 XC 8.0, 3.4 x 5.44 x 3.24 in., 2 Lb. 6.3 oz. I recommend this starter kit with the High Capacity M18 8.0 AH battery if you understand that it weighs quite a bit and may not be suitable for tools that require you to work at shoulder level or higher.

                    What can I say? This battery is everything you would expect from Milwaukee tool. Same size as their 6.0AH but with much more power and life. Add the new "quick charge" M12 and M18 charger and life gets simpler. I put this M18 8.0AH out of the box and into the charger. The battery power light indicated it was low. It took one hour to charge to !00%. Actually 1 hour and 5 minutes. I have a shop full of Milwaukee tools and I couldn't be happier with their products.
