Pros
Easy To Use
Strong, Compact Impact Driver
This compact 12 VDC impact driver is strong enough for most tasks around the home and can probably handle a good percentage of professional-level needs. The driver has a good lighting feature and the battery power level indicator lights are helpful. The running noise level is loud and ear protection is stongly recommended.

Performance
This 12 volt fuel impact is as strong as the 18 v Makita I had and I'm very impressed with run time I use my fuel impact all day everyday and the small battery 2.0 last a couple days easily. Until Milwaukee comes out with a newer model or someone steals mine I'll have this for years to come!

excellent compliment to the 3/8" electric impact!
When working on a car and you don't want to constantly change sockets, you can.keep going without.changing sockets constantly by keeping the most commonly used driver bit in this on and have it ready to go all the time!

Worth the money
I own the 12v fuel set and it is worth every penny, I like it because so far it seems to be well built like the old milwaukee tool from way back in the day and it's for the most part american made! Which milwaukee tools should all be 100% made in the USA with all American materials I understand that it would cost more but I would rather spend the extra 30 or 40 dollars to have it made here in the USA with quality materials. I think this fuel set is great it's very light weight and compact which is good when you work in tight areas. It has plenty of power I'd say it's very close to the 18v set just more compact. I've used the hammer drill for concrete, tile, etc. and it does just fine now I do not abuse my tools I do take care of them, so that does help, and the impact driver works like a charm too actually have to be careful not to snap screws off because it is so strong. Overall it's a great product, if you want quality and to get your money worth I recommend this set highly. I am the type of person who only buys good quality tools because I don't want to purchase them over and over again.

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 120 days.
