Rated 5 out of 5 by Little Beast! This little guy packs a serious punch! It's light and easy to hold but provides plenty of power. I've all but retired my 19.2v Craftsman drill and purchased hex drills bits for this driver. The battery life is well beyond what I've come to expect for this type of tool. The led gives off ample light. Only complaint is that to change the speed you have to engage the trigger first. Minor considering the responsiveness. January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Little guy thinks he's an 18v I bought this great tool after having used a few 18v/20v models for a number of months, and wanted something smaller to save on weight on my belt. As far as specs, nothing touches this M12. It surpasses other 12v performances, and even competes with some 18/20 volt models. The performance is incredible and I notice it actually impacts more readily than some other models, and this may lend to how it feels than it drives faster than higher volt models with more torque rating. Amazing power. I attached a small strong magnet with velco to the side opposite the belt clip to hold fasteners in place and ready for use, which is the only improvement I see fit to mention, as some other models feature magnetic storage. I use it regularly as an electrician and have used it for 2 months before reviewing it. For fastening and tightening purposes, the two speed setting is perfect for tightening screws, precision tightening, or all out torquing and this model as well CAN and WILL snap steel bolts if tightened too much, it's plenty torque for commercial construction applications!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Limits, you say? I don't want to bother saying what has already been said. It's light, versatile, powerful, etc etc. Instead, I wanted to share something new and relevant. I decided to test it's limits! Test 1: Drilling holes in Dug Fir 2x4 with impact-rated Bosch spade bits(end-wise, not through the short side). Normally, people wouldn't think of drilling holes with a tool like this. Shattered bits/dreams and images of shrapnel-punctured corneas comes to mind. However, impact-ready accessories are becoming more prevalent. I was able to drill a 3/4" hole comfortably. It was a very easy task(even one-handed), compared to doing this with a conventional drill where you have to be prepared for a surprise arm-wrestling match. Anything larger than 3/4" and the tool had a hard time. It can do 1" holes in a pinch, but it's a rather bumpy and dubious ride. Drywall is really no match for the spade bits, but don't expect the hole to be pretty. As far as dense materials like metal or concrete, I don't think there are any accessories out there that will enable you to drill those(yet). Test 2: Driving lag screws. I drove several 3/16"x4" lag screws straight into 2x4 studs WITHOUT PILOT HOLES. The tool had a hard time, but that is to be expected. It took quite a bit of impacting to drive the screws, but the tool did not heat up as much as I expected it to. Must be the nature of the impact mechanism and brushless system. Driving 4 lag bolts in this manner dropped the battery gauge from 4 lights to just 2. Now, I wouldn't want to put the tool through this on a daily basis. But knowing the tool CAN do it if need-be is great. As far as 3.5" deck and drywall screws, they are no match. This tool sinks them just as easily as would a full-sized driver. Just be mindful when driving screws, because they sink fast, and with much less of a counter-torque recoil than a normal drill/driver. A note on battery life, usually the battery life is expressed as ampere-hours. I find this misleading, and prefer to think of battery life in terms of joules. Multiply 2Ah times 12v, and you get 24 watt-hours, or 86.4 kilojoules of output. Now, compare this to the previous generation of 18v NiCad Impact Tools, of which a 2ah battery would equate to 36 watt-hours, or 129.6Kj. However, pop in a 4Ah Redlithium battery, and now you have a theoretical maximum of 173Kj on board, and it is still far more nimble than a cumbersome 18v! I wish manufacturers would list the battery life in terms of Watt-hours or KJ, but it's easy enough to calculate. Volts x Amp Hours x 3.6 = Battery life in kilojoules. Fun fact, a 4000lb car going 15mph produces 450Kj of energy. But I digress. There is no clutch like on a drill. But you can still intuitively sense appropriate torque. Usually, with screws, you can tell when the torque is good by looking at the subtle indents in the material around the head of the screw. With bolts, when you start to get enough torque down, the tool will make a slightly different sound. It goes from being percussive and boomy with a high degree of rotation to being more of a high-pitched trill with less rotation per impact. So yeah, there is no clutch, so you will just have to rely on The Force(not included). A few cons(mostly nitpicking). I wish the tool had an onboard clip to hold extra bits. I understand that it maybe wasn't ergonomically feasible, however. The next thing is the charger..It seems overly bulky. It seems like it could be a lot more compact. It would also be much more useful if the included charger would charge off of a 12v car outlet in addition to the 120v outlet. Which leads me to the last thing.. The case could stand to be smaller. For such a svelte and compact tool, the case is basically the same size as any other full-sized 18 or 20v driver. If the charger were better designed, I think the case could be half the size. In fact, why not just integrate a charger into the case, and have a retractable cord? It would protect batteries while they charge, and make more efficient use of space. Eh? Ehh? If the case were more efficiently designed, you could either make the case smaller, OR make a deluxe case the same size that has a nice integrated bit/socket organizer. So..My synopsis. If you need to drill small, clean holes, or you need to have very precise torque control, get a drill. If you want a compact tool to sink fastners like they are wearing concrete shoes and gnaw ragged holes in things, get this. Ok, that is all. I hope my review gave you some insight into the capability of this tool. I accredit it to the brushless system and lithium power cells. The tool wasn't exactly cheap, but then again, good stuff ain't cheap/cheap stuff ain't good. I expect it to last through many years of hard use. December 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by commercial plumber's review i work on various commercial projecs and this tool is great the battery last and lasts and lasts i rate this tool the m12 impact driver a 100 out of 100 September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This M12 handles 90% of everything This unit is awesome for any trade or any do it yourself-er around the home. I generally don't pull my larger drill since this M12 impact handles it all, I use hex drill bits too. This impact lags in 5/16x3 inch with no hesitation. The battery has long run time... I had the 1st generation impact and this fuel surpasses it with comfort and power ! May 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but very powerful My first impact driver bought on recommendation from a kitchen assembly professional, fantastic so powerful for so small a tool, not sure why you would need 18v unless dealing in very large bolts. It does take a little getting used to and first few screws I put in outdoor decking nearly went straight through the other side of the plank, so have a play before using it on something fancy April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome little tool I bought this to keep in my belt for little odds and end stuff and it has not disappointed me yet. Used it for a bunch of 3" heavy duty spax screws and it didn't skip a beat. It has more power than I thought it would, but for heavy stuff I still go to the m18 impact. Fits nicely in a framing rig and the one hand bit change is awesome. Everyone who tries it loves it too. July 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful but light and compact I own several 18v and 12v Milwaukee drills and impacts, and this tool is my second favorite next to my 18v Fuel 1/4" hex impact. When I'm tinkering around the house, this is usually the tool that I grab first. (Only because my 18v would be too powerful unless I dial it down) I highly recommend this little powerhouse.
