The best one yet!
I have gone all in with M12. After Makita, DeWalt, and Ryobi came and went, there was one left for me. This driver is powerful and efficient. The speed control is super. It makes for a screwdriver and impact in one. I have a total of six each of this and the 2404 hammer drill. They are wonderful.

Use it every day in a cabinet shop
Bought this off of a recommendation from a plumber friend and can't be happier. Been using it for over a year now with significant use on a daily basis. Two power modes for differing situations helps a ton. One-handed bit insertion for those times when I'm balancing an upper cabinet and trying to switch from a T-25 to a T-20 bit. Several other people in our shop have purchase this impact after having used mine and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great tool many uses!!! Awesome value
I purchase this in a kit... It has the same foot pound rating as the 3/8 impact 120 ft lbs or 1200 in lbs and I use it with the attachment as 1/4" and 3/8" impact highly recommended... Love the two torque setting option!!!

Great product, great company, then a big, fat lie
As good or better than any competing product on the market - BUT - 1,200 inch pounds (100 foot pounds) of torque is a BIG FAT LIE and Milwaukee should be first to come clean about these crazy claims. I measured less than 600 inch pounds, probably more like 400.

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.

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.
