    I got the m12 fuel impact with 3 screwing speeds and a drill setting.

    Reminds me, i made the mistake once, was replacing a compressor with the screw in terminals and snapped the head of a terminal with my impact. I got a very small drill bit and was going to drill into it and see it I could back it out. Luckily it backed out very easy. Lesson learned on that one...

    I dislike impacts. They strip screws out of units. Drives me nuts. Our company actually doesn't let guys use them in the service dept.

    Anyway the hex screwdriver is a shorter than a drill and has a clutch and a quick change head for bits.

    The fuel one is plenty powerful enough and I've got a few 1/4 hex drill bit sets.

    I’ve stripped way more screws with a drill than I have my 12v impact.

    What kind of drill? That doesn't make sense.

    It was an 18v dewalt I believe. It’s been a while. As soon as I hear the first impact I let go of the trigger. With the 12V it works out perfect. Only way it will strip one out is if I hold the trigger and let it keep impacting.

    I have found dealt to be much less controllable than many others.

    Same here...

    Gonna look around for the new M12 hydraulic impact... give it a try.

    Trying to find a combo pack with the new M12 impact and an M12 FUEL drill...
    My current drill seems to have a dead winding... when you push it, the power flow seems to jerk, as though the power is not steady going through the gearbox... like a tooth missing off a gear...

    Just to let you know, Milwaukee tools carry a 5 year warranty. If you didn't register it, but you can find the receipt, they will fix it.

    THX... however I am sure I could not find the receipt...
    And I suspect it has been longer than 5 years...

    Will keep that in mind and keep the receipt for the next set.

    Kinda watching the online selling sites... suspect after the first of the year... there will be yet more sales...
    May contact someone at the local walk-in Milwaukee store and inquire about the combo kit I am looking for.

    I use this site all the time. Not just for tools

    slickdeals.net

    You can set up an account and set up notifications.

    I've got a "Milwaukee" deal alert set up and have gotten a bunch of great deals.

    If you go there now and search "Milwaukee" any deal out there will pop up.

    It's a great website to save money. I use it all the time.

    Just a quick search on slickdeals and this came up. Not sure if this is the impact your looking for, but it's about $50 off the normal price. It's close to the cost of the bare tool alone and comes with a charger and two batteries.

    Also you can get almost any part for Milwauke power tools so if it is just the brushes they are usually 10$
