Smaller than a M18 3/8" Impact, and a bit more powerful.
Its small size will enable me to fit in small place with ease.

I use this mainly for automotive work. You basically only need this impact wrench and then a higher torque one to cover 99% of automotive nuts and bolts. This one is able to get into tight spaces that other tools simply cannot and with the power that usually comes with much larger tools.

I was recently able to use this to break free some exhaust bolts that were 15 years old and completely rusted. All my other tools either failed or couldn't fit and it wouldn't break free with hand tools.

Great tool. Absolutely necessary for automotive use IMO.

Just wow!
As a "diesel" mechanic (work on trailers too) I end up doing a lot of road calls. Would end up using hand tools since my overpriced stuff from a fancy tool company failed all the time. Bought this little guy, and have been absolutely amazed at what it will do! Thinking about buying a second one for at home!

Read first before buying, a mechanic's review
I use this product as a mobile mechanic. I thought I was going to really enjoy the upgraded torque of the stubby but boy was I disappointed. It absolutely smashes through the 2.0 and 4.0 batteries. Voltage drop and amp capacity makes a huge difference with torque as well so a xc 4.0 or better is a must, sticking to the 3s1p battery packs will severely limit it's overall performance. With a fresh 4.0 or 6.0 battery, it can pull head bolts off no problem as long as it is fully charged. With it half charged, no way, the performance drop off is two much, my gen 2 3/8's m12 impact outperforms it with a half charged battery.

I recommend the M18 1/4" impact 2853-20 personally. It's 2000 in/lb (166ft/lb torque spec is definitely under rated. It rips off wheel and suspension parts incredibly fast and with less stress than the m12 stubby. The head is also much smaller on the M18 that I have found it more useful in my mobile mechanic bag than the M12 stubby. The weight of the M18 is about the same as the stubby when using a M12 4.0 battery in the stubby and a 5.0 battery in the M18, the weight is better distributed too, resulting in less wrist fatigue. My only complaint is that it is 1/4" hex and not 3/8" or 1/2" square but with the same body.

As a small engine, and tool repair technician I have seen, used, and worked on a lot of tools.... THIS makes all other comparable impacts obsolete. This tool is more than powerful enough to do what ever task I ask of it. The brushless motor is unmatched by competitors and any thing of comparable size. I have the compact, and high torque 3/8" impacts and they are just collecting dust thanks to this tool!

I used mine for the 1st time today to replace thr struts on my Infiniti QX56. At 1st it was straining to take off the 1st lugnut, I was so disappointed. Then after I turned my brain on I realized I was on #1 setting. I switched that bad boy to #3 and it made my Dewalt DCF899B 20v MAX XR look bad, it removed the lugs faster. I own a lot of battery operated tools, I can honestly say none of them have ever impressed my like this new line of Milwaukee cordless the are 2nd to none.

As a small engine mechanic, this little guy is a monster. It fits between mower decks and frames. It removed 99% of every bolt/nuts, even the 15/16 on some of the commercial units. The reassembly mode is an awesome feature for most valve covers and similar items.

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.
