Q:Should I buy the Makita adapters to use with my Milwaukee impact driver? I see many bad reviews.
by|Feb 22, 2022
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I won't. Mine broke in one use. I don't know if I got a defective one or what but it was disappointing.

A:  The Makita adapter should fit the Milwaukee impact driver with no problem. Makita makes some great tools but my experiences are the Milwaukee tools are a little better. Since these are adapter, the Makita should performs about the same.

A:  I've never used Makita brand anything. I am happy with my milwakee set that I've used for over a year with no complaints.

      Q:Where are your products manufactured ? ( are they made in the US?
      by|Jul 9, 2021

      Answer This Question

      A:  This product is made in China I believe. Very well made to Milwaukee specs. Other Milwaukee products are made in Taiwan and USA and are also excellent. Yes there are a lot of crappy tools that come out of China, but this is not the case with Milwaukee. They are very hands on with their manufacturing and quality control.

        A:  The 3/8” drive adapter broke very easily. Not impressed at all

        A:  If they are true Milwaukee, then they should be manufactured in the US. That wasn’t the first thing going thru my mind as I grabbed it off the shelf to save myself a bunch of time. It’s not a truck or other major investment, but I do appreciate your wanting to buy US manufactured goods, wish everyone had the same feelings.

            Q:Can I use this adapter to take the lug nuts off my car using a Ridgid Gen5x and an impact socket?
            by|Aug 23, 2020
            5 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Without knowing what torque your lugnuts are at, and not seeing any printed/quoted max torque these bits can handle, your best bet would be to break torque with a breaker bar & remove them with your Ridgid impact with Milwaukee hex attached to socket. Reverse process to reinstall, run lugnuts on with Ridgid & Milwaukee hex bit, torque to spec. Unless you want to just snap your Milwaukee hex bits. I've owned my Milwaukee 3pc set about 3 yrs now, have used the 1/2 inch hex adapter attached to my older Ridgid 18v impact to tear down snow blowers & lawn mowers, not sure if any bolts even exceeded 75 ft lbs of torque, but worked flawlessly. Good luck.

            A:  No. I would not. These are designed for use on a impact driver for bolts and screws on relatively low torque gun rated in inch lbs. They are not designed for automotive impact drivers that have much higher torque rated in foot pounds. You need tools designed for automotive impact tool use for high torque applications. The first tool I have linked to is the 1/4 in driver similar to what those adapters are made for. The second tool I have linked to is an automotive type driver with 3/8 drive. Look at the torque spec differences in the two tools. https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Brushless-1-4-in-3-Speed-Impact-Driver-with-Belt-Clip-Tool-Only-R86037N/206947575 https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-OCTANE-Cordless-Brushless-3-8-in-6-Mode-Impact-Wrench-Kit-with-2-0-Ah-Battery-and-18-Volt-Charger-R86239SB/310380057

              Q:Can these be used with a regular drill driver?
              by|Aug 14, 2020
              5 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Yes, the teeth will grip the flats just fine. But they work better with an impact. A drill driver, being non-impacting, will deliver the force against your arm / wrist when the fastener gets tight.

              A:  Yes, as long as you lower the torque setting on the drill. Driving bolts and screws at full power is a good way to strip or break things.

                  Really great for impact drivers when driving large screws or removing bolts. This is really one of those "clutch" driver accesories to have. It connects your sockets with your driver/impact driver.

                  Tough!!
                  I had my doubts when I used the 1/2 inch adapter to loosen four 24MM bolts on my tractor. Job completed on the highest torque setting on my Milwaukee impact and the adapter was not damaged.

                      Broke after 5 minutes of use
                      Bought a brand new set of socket adapters this morning, and often 5 minutes of light use, the keeper ball fell out of the 3/8" adapter. Very disappointed.

                          Disappointed in Milwaukee... Usually I love Milwaukee tools, but this 1/2 socket adapter snapped on me while installing lug nuts, before they were even tight.

                            Not for impact.
                            First time using the 1/2 adapter with my FUEL M18 1/4" impact and it snapped. Supposed to be meant for use with an impact, but nope! I ended up breaking the nut free by hand with a short breaker bar with minimal effort.

                                I just bought this adapter and it snap-off on second drive. Took me sometime to get the broken piece out. Own other Milwaukee tool for more than 30 years and never has this terrible experience before. I think Milwaukee can do better than this or just don't sell it.
