Milwaukee m12 Fuel combo kit and its got some balls behind it! Very impressed and happy with my purchase.

Yea it's a nice kit, drills a little larger than I expected, about the same size as my compact 20v.

Milwaukee Fuels are definitely a powerhouse, well everything Milwaukee is a powerhouse. I really want to get into the m12 line but I just can't justify it right now. Very nice tools, enjoy!

Just got a M18 Fuel set and was trying the drill out on a project.  After drilling three or four holes I started using M12 drill for the rest of the job.  Didn't realize I had begun to ignore M18 until I began putting the tools away after I had finished. I had pulled out the M12 because it already had a bit in it that I needed and forgot about the other drill after that.  I just like how the M12 fits in my hand and I seem to have better control with it, probably because of it's light weight.

I love my m12 set, I wish the drill was a little more compact like the Bosch but I have the screw driver and fuel impact and those are pretty nice to have at hand.

Does anyone know how much torque the 1/4" Fuel impact wrench has? Milwaukee shows it at 500 inch pounds but that doesn't seem like much to me. I'm hesitant to get one if its only a little more torque than their M12 ratchet

Welcome to the forum, yes it is 500 inch pounds, thing is is that it is a 1/4" square drive in a 12 volt tool.  Not much for impacts in that size but versus the rachet your going to have the impact ability on it that is able to bust small nuts where the ratchet would require manual cracking.  I haven't seen much in a 1/4" impact sockets, you may be better off going with the 3/8" with 1400 in pounds.  The thing with the 1/4" square drive is the size is the limiting torque factor, something to just keep in mind, if you need power go bigger or go into the 18v line.

Good to know, I've been debating trying a dedicated 1/4" drive for auto work. I use the heck out of my DCF883 but it would be nice to start adding to my M12 collection. Milwaukee kicks serious butt in 12v vs. Dewalt

That's probably one of my most used cordless tools, I leave it when I can grab it with a battery without digging through bags and cases
