Milwaukee 18 volt cordless impact


Does anyone have one of these? A friend of mine claims it's the best cordless impact ever...

I looked at one last year. Declined to buy when I saw the price of a battery. You couldn't buy it in a kit then.

We had them at Dofasco, and they were pretty tough.

I have a Milwaukee 18 volt drill, very happy with it. The specs on this impact are awesome. 1000 ft-lb tightening torque, 1400 for removal! I can see one in my future.

 The charger with 2 pretty decent but not top batteries is $230 on Amazon. Not cheap...

You can go on-line and see ratings and reviews. I just looked and this unit in the review I saw was among the best of the best, ranking second to Dewalt.

I was looking at that too and noticed the same. A few guys said they had issues with it when it was new but otherwise it seems very good.

Milwaukee has been a real good name for years. I had very good luck with Bosch over the years but have totally changed over to DeWalt. They have been superb. Some are 20 volt with most of them being 60 volt which are just work horses. Saw rips stronger than a corded one.

I was hoping you'd chime in here Jerel! 

So should I be looking at Dewalt as well or would you say Milwaukee is good? Remember, I don't make a living using this tool, it's just for hobby stuff!

You won't go wrong with either one. What I like is once you go with one you can transfer batteries with all your tools. Pretty much everything including my framing nailers are cordless. Just use air when on very large projects.

My two vintage and one newer "corded" drills are Milwaukee. I wouldn't buy any other drill.

Bought one last year...WORTH EVERY PENNY!  Milwaukee has a "hammer till free then slowly turn with constant pressure" feature that is just fantastic. I only use the compressor for the tire machine now. Works amazing on the bumper to frame bolts on 50s to early 60s gms, you know the ones with the nut being a sleeve pressed into the frame that always breaks free and spins, the constant spin with pressure leaves the nut intact in the frame whereas hammering or hand ratcheting always seems to break the nut free causing grief. I've even used it successfully on the tiny screws that hold wheelopening trim on.

I bought a drill and impact driver kit last year that was on offer over here. Definitely one of my better decisions. So far I can't justify the cost of an impact wrench...........

I have the Dewalt 20v impact from about 5 years ago. It won't even break loose the lug nuts on our vehicles. I'm assuming the technology has changed since or maybe the Milwaukee is just a better tool?

 I'm all in on Dewalt too, not in same league as Jerel but the boys in my family are partial to yellow and black.

I snapped this photo when me, my son and son-in-law were doing a project.

A few years back, my company asked all the major competitors of tool brands to supply our crews for testing their product. The overwhelming feedback was for the Milwaukee brand. We now use them exclusively and currently have dozens of nearly every tool they make with over a hundred of the 1/2" impacts, drills, saws etc. in the fleet.

In short, Milwaukee tools are incredibly powerful and very durable.

I also have the Dewalt 20v drill and DA sander. The DA sander is fantastic (just purchased it this year) and I'm tired before it is.

I have all Dewalt tools, and have tons of them being a contractor. I have to say that I used a friends (fellow contractor) Milwaukee impact gun on a project and they are way better than the Dewalt. Gobs of torque and the unit itself is shorter from the chuck to the back of the motor, making is easier to get in tight areas. Im seriously contemplating picking up a couple Milwaukee tools for the home shop because of the size, and the fact that it seems to out-torque the Dewalts.

 Guessing your impact was probably a basic unit which most guys use for screws and such.  They also make an impact for wheel nuts and you have to watch so you don't over torque the nuts with it.  There is quite a difference between the 2.  Jumping up to the 60 volts helps too plus extra battery time.

If a Steel mill is using them, then they probably are pretty good.

 I have the 20 volt Dewalt gun and it wont take lug nuts off other than that its ok

I really appreciate all the input. It certainly seems like the Milwaukee is the way to go.

Thanks!
