Product Overview

The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 1/2 in. Compact Impact Wrench with Friction Ring is the most compact in its class, delivering users the most access in tight spaces, up to 250 ft./lbs. of nut-busting torque, and maximum workspace visibility. This battery-powered impact wrench measures only 4.9 in. L with a POWERSTATE Brushless motor to provide the power to remove stubborn fasteners, even in confined spaces. The Milwaukee 1/2 in. impact wrench has tri-LEDs that surround the anvil to deliver users 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 20 ft./lbs. of torque for hand-tight fastening applications to prevent overtightening. Mode 4 also features Bolt Removal Control delivers full torque output, then decreases RPMs once the bolt is loosened to prevent fastener drops. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence electronics make these controls possible while ensuring maximum performance, protecting the tool against overloads, over-heating, and over-discharge.

Great gun, one flaw..
Its a really nice impact, perfect balance between size, weight & power. Working in Power line construction, we have to switch between a couple different sockets. I got the friction ring. Its too time consuming and annoying to use a dent pin, especially in rubber gloves and sleeves. The 3(4) in one lineman impact socket is too heavy for the friction ring. When aloft or climbing it will pop off. Lineman need a small impact with the 7/16 quick connect chuck.

    There is not a lot that needs to be said about this little gem in the latest Milwaukee line up. Just as it's predecessors, it's down right tough and now small enough to get in the tight areas and really help a guy out. With the exception of some really tough nuts, this little guy is gonna get the job done for you. Love the light weight at only 3.9 lbs. Also noteworthy are the new 3 LED lights that which really help ya see what you're doing. I won the two bigger impacts as well, but suspect I'll be giving this one first shot at making life easier on a mechanic. I added the rubber boot to it to help protect it and give it a little cushion when it bumps against things.

    It's simple. There are Milwaukee tools. And there's everything else. This is a professional's tool. Mechanic, carpenter (lag bolts in concrete like butter), home pro. This is that kind of impact wrench. I've been using Milwaukee tools for 40 years. This one is one of the best in my shop. Battery powered like it's a nuclear power plant. The finest impact wrench on the planet.

    The M18 Fuel Friction Ring 1/2” Impact Wrench is a solid tool with plenty to offer. The two 5 AH batteries that are included in the kit yield lots of power and some decent work times between charges. A Milwaukee combo charger that will handle M12 as well as M18 batteries is also included in this kit. Batteries charge rather quickly. The charger glows orange while the battery is charging changing to green when the battery is fully charged and ready for use. The manual is easy to read and describes product usage rather well. The weight of the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Impact Wrench is just right and the tool is easy to handle. It’s well balanced. It fits into somewhat tighter places than others and provides a more than necessary amount of torque. There are 4 speed/torque settings. I used the highest setting. I tried the Milwaukee Impact Wrench out putting together a work bench, first assembling the legs and then attaching them to the oak work bench top using lag bolts. It wasn’t much of a challenge for the Milwaukee but the project allowed me to get to know the thing. I also used it to remove the blade from my oldest mower. The blade was off in a jiff and I didn’t need to use a blade lock. This thing would be wonderful for assembling one of those kit Quonset style metal buildings. Such a project almost requires that you own a Milwaukee ½” Impact Wrench. My Milwaukee has a friction ring, my first experience with that. I have different branded sets of sockets and surprisingly, the sets seemed to fit differently. A Husky set of deep sockets that I got at Home Depot seemed to work the best. I had difficulty removing a different (but name) brand ½” drive socket that was 9/16” size. Maybe it was the newness of the tool but the Husky came right off. Go figure. There are some little features that seem gimmicky but aren’t. The three LED lights really light up the work area. One will never again be enough. Setting the Speed/Torque to 4 sets the tool to the equivalent of hand tightening torque. Surprisingly handy! Great if you’re torqueing things. The battery has four lights that indicate the level of charge/remaining power. Now if I can only remember to check the levels. All in all, this is a well-designed, powerful, and easy to use tool that delivers. I went a long time before getting a battery powered impact wrench and now can’t live without one. I plan on getting a lot of use out of this one.

    Milwaukee M18 FUEL GEN 3 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Compact Impact Wrench with Friction Ring Kit – 2855-22 This fully adjustable torque 1/2-inch drive impact wrench is a Great Addition to the Milwaukee M18 line. It does not matter if you are using it in the Automotive Industry or in the Construction trades. Having 4 torque options from "finger tight" up to 250 ft lbs. depending on which of the settings you choose is a great improvement over previous battery or pneumatic impact wrenches, previously the standards of most trades. The " drive by feel method " previously used, caused stripped lug nuts or over torqued attachments, broken fasteners and even pulling the threads out of the bolting or fastening surfaces. That should all end, if you just use the chart and the attachment number selection on this impact and then a torque wrench, if the torque is a critical component of your job. Milwaukee has also made it easier to use this tool in close quarters, by including three bright LEDs at the front of the tool, actuated by the trigger. Milwaukee not only includes the adjustable impact wrench in this kit but the include the options you need. They include: two M18 5-ah batteries, an M18 - M12 110-volt battery charger and the instruction manuals for both in a fitted blow molded plastic case. The chart for your impacts torque settings is included in the instruction manual for the impact wrench. This new generation of brushless impact wrenches still has the lighter body and shorter impact head, so you can get into those tight quarters need in all trades these days.

    This Milwaukee M-18 Fuel Gen-3 Impact Wrench is everything it's cracked up to be! When they say, "Nut-busting power," they mean Nut-busting power! I needed to remove the wheels off of my '97 Pickup to replace the brakes. Didn't have to drag 50+ feet of air compressor hose around. Didn't have to tear out the back seat to find the 4-way wrench. Just grabbed my new lightweight POWERFUL Gen-3 Impact Wrench, grabbed the right coated impact socket, and BAAAMMMM...done! Made easy work of removing all the nuts, just like at the tire places. Seriously, I felt like one of the race track tire guys and their quick-change expertise. I also used it on my 2020 BMW M-4 wheels. Like butta, baby! You can't go wrong with this impact wrench. Compact. Lightweight. Powerful. Two long-lasting batteries. Charger. Simply one of the best Nut-busting cordless impact wrenches you'll ever find!

    I’ve been a fan of Milwaukee tools for a while, so I was excited when the Milwaukee M18 1/2” compact impact wrench kit arrived on my doorstep. The kit comes complete with the impact wrench, charger (which also charges M12 batteries in addition to M18 batteries), two batteries, and a carrying case. For a 1/2” impact driver, it is light and compact, and it features three LED lights for better viewing in dark spaces. After charging the spare battery, I went into the garage to test this bad boy out. As a measure of its impactfulness (I think I just invented a word here), I loosened four of the lug nuts on my truck and re-torqued them to 70, 80, 90, and 100 foot pounds using my trusted clicker torque wrench. I set the impact wrench to the bolt removal mode and. . . the first three lugs nuts loosened up no problem but the 100 pound lug nut took a few seconds before it loosened up. While the Milwaukee M18 1/2” compact impact wrench is rated at a maximum 250 foot pounds of “nut-busting” Torque, I suspect it will struggle with anything over 120 foot pounds. As a garage tool for the DIYer, it should handle most jobs.
