Easy to carry in the side bags doing work in high place, or tight quarters & still have enough power to get the job done!
Great products!."

I have a number of m12 and m18 tools. I find they have plenty of power, hold a charge well, are easy to grip and use and they are very affordable. I use mine for lawn mower repair and boat work/repair. Their compactness, power and time between charges make the my favorite tools to use at any job.

Small, light, and portable
Bought them because they're small and both fit on my tool belt. I mainly bought them to run electrical conduit on walls and roof.

They pack plenty of power and run time. Would've been nice to include 2 4.0 batteries.

Cons.

The grip is a bit fat due to batterie. Hammer drill is as heavy as the 18v. Belt clip is tiny and hard to use. I also had to use lock tight on that screw because it kept coming loose on both drills. The case has no storage for extra bits or sockets.

No regrets, this is the best
I get terrible buyers' remorse and am really cheap. I research everything before spending money, then I keep researching after the purchase to make sure I didn't make a mistake.

With this kit (I got the reconditioned one for 3/4 the price for new) I have not found a single reason to think I made the wrong choice. There are more powerful drills, and there are cheaper drills, and there are lighter drills, but I am convinced there is no better combo of light, powerful, and inexpensive than this one.

First project was to build simple 2x4 and OSB basement shelves anchored to floor joists and concrete block wall. Both had 2 bars of power left after 7 or so hours of work. The impact driver weighs nothing and drives long screws deep like it's nothing. Wood or concrete. I strongly prefer the higher-speed setting.

The hammer drill really surprised me. Of course pilot holes into wood were no problem. I have not drilled into concrete or brick much. When I did it was with a regular old drill so it took a long time and multiple bits. Again this hammer drill weighs almost nothing and I was able to drill multiple 3" 3/16" holes into concrete block very quickly. I did not try it on the poured concrete floor so I can't comment on that. I would guess it is capable of much more than I have put it through so far.

If you bought these two, the two batteries, and the charger all separately it would be a lot more expensive. This is a great deal and I've never been happier with a power tool purchase. I am looking forward to getting more M12 items in the future.

Savvy Product
The compact size, durability and great use of modern technology makes my combo drill above and beyond any other brand... ( Including the yellow one) I enjoy every opportunity to open my cool red case!

Gotta Love the Fuel version of both M12 and M18
I've accumulated many of the Milwaukee M12 and M18 series tools and am more than satisfied with them all. The Fuel versions are a cut above on power, battery life, and durability. Closest thing to corded power (and pretty close at that) and a pleasure to use. I give this drill/driver set the highest recommendation

Perfect for HVAC
Bought this set to replace my old Dewalt 18v set. So far this set outperforms the Dewalt in every way. The drill is perfect for drilling holes for tapcons/anchors in block. It even handles a 2'' hole saw with no problem. It really shines cutting holes in duct work with the Malco hole cutter.

The impact driver is a beast!! Perfect for sheet metal screws, sharp point or self tapping, it dont matter, this little thing eats them alive.

The set comes in nice hard case which is so much better than a bag that most other brands come with. Battery life is great. Nothing bad to say, if you do HVAC service or install, or any other type of maintenance work you need this set.

Fuel Rocks
For a 12 volt system the Fuel line has power similar to the 18 v systems and yet lighter and easier to use. It is really quite impressive.

The extra XC battery is also a great part of this package. The carrying case also allows the extra battery and charger so you will have everything you need at the job site.

You pay more for the Fuel version but this particular package is a great price.

Will this 12V fuel take the same batteries as the regular Milwaukee non-fuel 12V battery> I want to see if I can get the 12V propress and this item and use the same batteries, to see if they are comparable. Are they? Thank you
Simon on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will fit but there is no comparison for duration of time between
recharges and the raw power of the red lithium 12v XC 4.0 batteries
designed for the fuel. I do electrical work and my 12v hammer drill and
impact are always on my sides and I'll go 2 some times 3 weeks between
charges. I absolutely love them even if the batteries are in my opinion
over priced.

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 60 days.
