I use my impact driver WAY more than my hammer drill. Mainly because it has so many more applications. HD is also selling a nonFuel M18 kit that includes impact driver and and hammer drill with 2 3.0amp batteries and bag for $199.

I wish this was the surge or hydraulic version. I was at Atlas tools and it’s pretty quiet compared to the other version.

I even spoke to a rep and he said I wouldn’t see it at Home Depot...I guess that might change soon.


The Atlas tool guy said both of these are leaps and bounds quieter than my current dewalt setup.

Might be something to consider for some depending on work location.

Thanks! I ordered the impact driver. The torque is way bigger than the hammer drill.

insane deal, 12Ah worth of batteries for $150. That's almost as cheap non-branded m12 batteries.

Planning to buy my power tools to build a house in cottage country to start homesteading in a few years. Should I skip this deal and wait? will the battery be no good by then? What are the warranty on milwaukee powertools and batteries in Canada?

I’m going to pass actually, looked up the specs for the m12 impact and it’ll only be 16% lighter than my m18. The battery will be lighter also than my m18 2.0 but still not as much as I thought. Great deal though for the 6.0 and 2x2.0, especially if you have other m12 tools and/or the m12 heated jacket. Interesting that the weight for the new Surge impact isn’t posted on Milwaukee’s site.

Hmm, I guess I'll got get the extra battery as I bought the hammer drill kit recently just for the batteries and still haven't opened it.

Does more Ah provide more power or just longer use? Specifically, for the stubby, would the 6.0Ah provide full torque compared to the 3.0?

Maybe a very slight performance improvement but its more about runtime. You get better performance with High Output batteries if the tool is optimized for those; like the outdoor/lawn equipment line

If you are going to leave it in a box for year(s) I'd skip this deal...

I bought the drill river and impact driver combo a while ago but I rarely use the impact driver. What other applications do you use it for? Would it be good to drill pilot holes into brick?

Very good deal with the added 6.0Ahr battery.
I Have a set but the ergonomics of the torpedo-styled battery doesn't fit me.
Much prefer the Dewalt for the grips.
