Product Overview

Details

The MILWAUKEE M12 FUEL SURGE 1/4 in. Hex Hydraulic Driver is the industry's first 12V hydraulic impact driver. The FLUID-DRIVE Hydraulic Powertrain's hydraulic impact allows for operation up to 2X quieter with less vibration for smoother and faster driving speeds. Its compact size provides unmatched access in tight spaces and allows for easy transport on a tool belt or in a tool bag. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers up to 0 - 3,000 RPM with constant power output to drive screws faster. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence prevents damage to the tool and battery caused by overloading or overheating. The cordless impact driver is compatible with all M12 REDLITHIUM Compact Batteries or Extended Capacity Batteries, delivering more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack. The impact driver's 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL delivers greater control over output speed and power for greater versatility. Self-Tapping Screw Mode reduces walking when self-tapping screws as well as reduces overdriving, breaking and stripping out screws.
Features:
  • FLUID-DRIVE hydraulic powertrain reduces metal on metal contact within the tool, delivering quieter operation, smoother performance and increased durability over a standard impact
  • Longer sustained torque delivers similar drive times in application as most 12V impact drivers
  • Up to 2X quieter operation makes this tool ideal for occiped spaces
  • Compact head length and compact battery footprint gives more access than competitive impact drivers
  • POWERSTATE brushless motor delivers maximum power and long motor life
  • REDLINK PLUS Intelligence prevents damage to the tool and battery due to overloading or overheating
  • REDLITHIUM batteries deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the battery
Includes:
  • M12 FUEL SURGE 1/4 in. Hex Hydraulic Driver - 2551-20
  • Belt Clip
  • Battery and charger sold separately

Good Tool for Its Intended Purpose
I have the Milwaukee 12 volt Gen 1, Gen 2, and now this Gen 3 hydraulic to compare.

The biggest advantage of the hydraulic obviously is that it is a LOT less loud. It does produce torque inline with the Gen 1 and Gen 2 versions.

One consideration, not noted everywhere, is that the hydraulic is intended for use with small to medium size fasteners. Normal deck screws are fine, as are GRK and SPAX engineered lag screws. If you want to use a screw requiring a lot of torque, say a conventional 1/2 inch lag screw - I would not recommend this tool. The problem is not torque - the hydraulic has lots of torque (for any normal job).

The problem is this. Under lots of load the hydraulic oil heats up and thins down. Then the mechanism that should be protected by the hydraulic oil experiences metal to metal contact. The sound level increases, and more significantly the unit starts to transmit significant vibrations to your hand - strong enough that I would not want to use the tool for that application.

Not really so much a negative as using the right tool for the job. This tool works great for its intended purpose. Get it beyond its intended torque range and it misbehaves.

Excellent upgrade!
This tool is amazing! I had the original m12 impact and this is night and day different. It is much quieter and way less vibration. I haven't read the stats on this but it definitely seems more powerful than my other one. The chuck also loads with just a press of the attachment and my other one didn't do that either.
