BEASTS....with personalities
The power is unreal but how you can control it is what makes these outstanding. From foundation walls to 4x4's to chair repair and crafts, they get it done.
The versatility of the Impact is the best, almost replaces the drill, until you need to do the big stuff. Rumor that Milwaukee has a 9.0(and larger) battery to launch soon. The 5.0 is more than enough for regular jobs.
Other reviews will be more specific and give examples of how they are used, so read them. Me, I just want good quality tools, to do multiple jobs, that will last for many years.

Best set money can buy!!
I have a custom cabinet shop and finish carpentry business. I use this set daily for drilling pocket holes, assembling face frames, installs etc. I have to charge the batteries maybe once a month this is very impressive to me as I have used other companies sets in the past and they just do not stack up to this particular set, even the brushless competition. There is not one negative thing I can say about these tools.

Can't say enough good thing about this kit.
This kit replaced my older M18 combo for work use. The brush-less design works great! Smooth power. The switchable speed range on the impact driver is a very useful feature. Only complaint is the side handle design on the drill. I think Milwaukee needs to rethink this.

Best combo kit on the market
Great as a kit or buying each piece separately. I'm an electrician and tend to have helpers who like to beat on my tools. These handle that in stribe. Dropped, slammed, covered in dirt or saw dust it doesn't matter. The drill and impact work like new day in and day out. Highly recommend. It has all the power you need from small projects to big jobs.

Best drill/impact ever
I'm a professional electrician. I was kicking around the idea of a new drill kit a few months ago but didn't want to get off the $ for a new one. Once I did I wish I had a lot earlier. If you use cordless hammer drills or impact drivers everyday just buy this. The power is amazing.

I'm starting to upgrade all my tools from the Milwaukee web to 18v. Haven't used the impact gun yet, but the hammer drill was a able to make 10 1/2"by 1 deep holes in converse with no noticeable difference in battery state. Got two free battery with the kit. Theyl this is my 6 or 7 order from CPO.

Best Purchase Ever!
I use this product for almost anything. I've built garden planters, drilled through concrete for anchors, drilled through sheet rock. Anything I put up to these 2 tools they knock them out without breaking a sweat. I've used them 2+ days without charging and only the drill went to 1 Bar, the impact was still at 4. I like being able to click the button to check my battery. I also like the 4 modes on the impact fastener, that way i can use the low setting to prevent stripping or breaking a fastener.

The main thing is, don't waste your money on anything else. My co-worker that lives by DeWalt, fell in love with this kit.

The best drill in it's class!
I own a custom sheet metal shop that works with materials such as steel, aluminum and stainless, from 16 ga. (1/16" thick) up to 1/4"...I purchased this kit for the shop and was absolutely amazed with the quality and build of the Milwaukee Fuel system!...the drill has so much torque!...I would compare it to a corded drill!...the impact drill is nice as well!...4 different settings to adjust to the work needed! The 5.0ma batteries are really nice...they hold a charge all day! I am sold on the fuel lineup now!

Insane Power
I just started using this kit, i'm very impressed. The drill doesn't seem to be slowed down by a bucket of concrete and a paddle mixer in high gear.Doesn't even get hot. Impact is very controllable and brutally powerful. It breaks bits on 4" decking screws while "testing" it.

Ohhh yea
The impact driver and the hammer drill are insanely powerful. These things just keep going with the 5ah battery packs. Ive had long extensions on them and pretty big hole saws that kept on eatin'. The impact puts in 5/16 and 3/8 self tappers like butter.

Hands down, best drills you can own. Corded drill?!? Why would you need that if you own this combo?

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.
