Love It
The tool I always grab the most. Handles everything I have used it on. The 3 speed electronic control helps me not over tighten small screws and bolts. Angle of light shines on work nice. Compact design gets in just about all tight spots you should encounter. Nice rubber bumpers around tool in case you happen to bump it against something. Bit holder requires you to just push bit in without having to use two hands. All in all a nice tool to own.

Just wait 'til you see how fast this baby puts in screws. Easy loading hex drive, short drive length to get into tight places, tons of power, it has it all. So glad I waited for the FUEL. Stop reading and order one now!

I like the feature that allows you to choose the best amount of torque for the job it's being used on;the best from all comparison reviews I was able to find.

Milwaukee products are awesome.....
Great tool for odd jobs around the house. I like the ease of changing the bits and having all the power and long battery life to complete any job. Can't figure out why I didn't buy one sooner. Oh well, I got one now and glad I did.

Pros

best 1/4 impact
Powerful. I use it to install windows. I installed 26 windows today with a single charge of a 4.0 XC battery. So... roughly 450 2 1/4 wood screws through PVC windows. not including the many misses with screwing cause of odd angles and screwing with fully extended arms. So the drill is probably running a conisderable amount more time than if i were screwing in a better position.

The drill has more initial power than other 1/4 impacts ive used. So it will impact less. So its slightly less noisy than other impacts.

works like a charm. perfect match to other tools.
bought this reconditioned to add another driver. perfect match, and like new. shipping was quick, carefully packed. no problems. what else can you say - after driving a couple of hundred screws, this reconditioned unit is in every way the equivalent of the one i bought new a few months ago.

What bit kit would you recommend buying to go with this drill
Sadie on Jun 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Milwaukee 48-32-1500 Quik-Lok 38-Piece Hex Shank Drilling and Driving Bit Set is a good choice. It has a variety of both drive and drill bits for this drill.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
