I got the hammer drill and impact driver with 2 free 6 ah batteries. my local HD also matched Rona's 15% off event that starts Saturday. I paid $290.42 taxes in.

I'm surprised they price matched considering they don't sell Milwaukee, but great deal for you.

Can someone give me a good reason to buy this milwaukee impact driver instead of a 20V dewalt impact with more power for the same price?

Sounds like I have more options with the hammer?
Impact best for driving screws into wood. No struggling and guessing. And building ikea furniture

Drill/driver/hammer. Great for drilling holes in wood/concrete/brick (u proper need drill bits)
During summer I used this guy to help father in-law mount some external lights on his brick wall house. This did the job and was lighter compared to my m18 hammer drill.

Don’t expect the m12 hammer drill to be as powerful as the m18 hammer drill but it still gives a good punch

the biggest benefit of an impact driver is that it will almost never cam out the head of a screw. The only time it happens is if the bit is not seated into the head of the screw properly.

I have both the fuel hammer drill and fuel impact driver.
I usually bring out the impact driver if I need to drive long screws into wood. The impact driver is loud, so for doing handyman stuff around the house I prefer the drill when I don’t want it to sound like a construction site.

It's a good idea to use hearing protection with impact drivers.

This one comes with only one battery.

This milwaukee m12 deal you get two batteries for starters, is lighter, can do most jobs of that dewalt v20, even drive in screws into 2x4 wood with no issues. I've used both theses style models, the m12 ergonomically is better for long term use.

Dewalt v20 does potentially offer strong power if you use the higher am v20 batteries. Like example if you want to drive long 2inch screws into 2x4 wood. Or with 50/50 success you could use to try to take bolts off your tires, where this milwauke m12 it be more of 30% sucess of taking bolts off your rims depending on how tight the bolts are or rusted the bolts are..

Is this set a better deal and better tools? M18 brushless. you also get a free battery or tool .

My online order just got cancelled, even though lots of inventory.

Was this a price error?

Reordering from a different location.
