The Milwaukee 2553-20 M12 FUEL 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver once again raises the bar for 12V performance with best in class driving speed, power, and size. By focusing on productivity, this Impact Driver gets the job done faster by being over 20% faster in application speed vs. the competition. This tool outputs over 1,300 in. lbs. of torque that allows the user to get more work done by completing a wide range of fastening. Measuring only 5.1" in length allows for unmatched access in tight spaces. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers up to 0-3,300 RPM with constant power output to drive screws faster. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence is the most advanced electronic system on the market, preventing damage to the tool and battery caused by overloading or overheating. For use with M12 REDLITHIUM Compact Batteries or Extended Capacity Batteries (sold separately), which deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries on the market. The 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL provides greater control over output speed and power for greater versatility by delivering 0-1,300 RPM in Mode 1, 0-2,400 RPM in Mode 2 and 0-3,300 RPM in Mode 3. Mode 4 is Self-Tapping Screw Mode which is designed to reduce walking when starting self-tapping screws as well as reduce overdriving, breaking and stripping out screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility perfected. Mic drop. This driver reaches both low and high. It has a low setting which won't break small screws such as electrical devices. The ratcheting clutch sounds weird, but has been setup to slowly tighten those little screws giving you fantastic control. The medium setting is most helpful driving #8 - #10 self trappers- common every day things. The high speed setting has power that is normally reserved for 18v tools. It does not back down from a challenge. It's almost an inch shorter than the previous one, which I still use. This extra inch is going to come in handy. Beautiful execution of a plan, Milwaukee! This is why you're the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite tool This driver is so compact an comfortable to use, but don’t let its small size fool you. It is on steroids. I can use it to fasten big bolts on tractor even. An it can’t be beat for knocking mower blades off. Plus I’ve used it to hang doors was able to drive 3.5 in screws one handed over my head with very little strain. If you’ve ever tried that then you know what I’m talking about old days lots of stripped heads an had to stand on ladder so I could put all my weight behind old style driver. That’s why I grab this tool so often. I have it’s brother in 1/2 in driver drill. I can say I’ve only used it once to drill a hole. This gun is my go too now period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite tool. I’m well invested in the M12 and M18 lineups. However this 1/4” impact driver is my overall favorite. Sure the the brushless table saw and sds max tools are amazing for cordless tools. But this little impact has the most amazing power to weight ratio. It smokes a few competitors 18 volt tools yet it fits in a tool pouch or is almost unnoticeable clipped on your pocket. You have to run one for a day and you’ll realize you need it. My M18 ONE-KEY™ only comes out for the heavy work now. This little guy fights outside it’s weight class.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overheating problems with gen 2 version. I drill 4x4 6x6 studs to run low voltage lines, I use this impact for everything from building server racks, servicing equipment, to drilling studs. Had both the gen 1 version until it was stolen. This generation impact has a overheating problem when drilling studs if drilling more than 1 or 2 it will stop for a few seconds to 30 seconds and in between stopping will only turn on for 5-10 seconds and shut off again. First I thought it was a battery issue but after switching batteries several times it still has the issue. Gen1 never had this issue he’ll I dropped that one in a a river dried it off and it worked until stolen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprising power and performance from 12v I am now totally rethinking my need for 18v stuff. This driver, and the M12 Fuel drill is amazing. It is super small. It has full power. Great battery life. This is a must buy for not only home owners and minor DIY, but for the Pro. In fact, I might get another one just to look at in admiration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a DIYer this is a great tool, worked as well as my 18v. Quick review : Views from an active DIYer I love the impact driver, everything that I was able to do with my 18v tools. I got accomplished with the 12v little brothers. Charge time right out of the bag with the regular m12 charger was pretty long, 1/2hr for the 2.0ah and 1hr for the 4.0ah. Overall great tools. I was able to use this with my long screw: 1/4" x 6" going through timber.Having lightweight tools reduces the load and strain and is sure to add longevity to your work life. More In depth review: I used this for a few projects I had , I used it with a pocket hole jig, T-Star bits and regular bits. The drivers worked well. Every thing that I was able to do with 18v tools was able to do with these also. I got this because of the expansive M12 line and there are a lot of tools I am interested in.The batteries do not have a fuel gauge but the drill and impact driver did. Once you press the trigger the fuel gauge will stay on for 2 seconds. The LED light stays on for 10 seconds after the trigger is depressed. I found the light to be bright enough to light my work area. This comes with the belt clip attached on the left side but you can remove it and place it on the right side if you are a lefty. Driver: I love that the impact driver does not have a spring loaded chuck. I hate it when you release the bit and they go flying. This uses a ball detent pin to keep the bits in place and I for one am a fan of it. The driver worked well. I used it with several screws. The largest being a 1/4" x 6" screw. I had it in the self tapping mode initially. It went about halfway through after struggling, I switched to mode 3 and it made quick work of it. My driver fell from a height of 23" and it survived the drop. The battery came out but neither the driver nor the battery was damaged.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Locking mechanism The locking mechanism that holds the vets in place went bad after a year of use only shooting sheet metal screws. Also they make it very hard to warrantee anything I have the receipt and everything and it seems like I’m jump through hoops to try to get any type of warranty through Milwaukee I switched over from dewalt. which Now I see is a mistake. As I had no problem warranting anything with Dewalt. They even let me keep the tool and send a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and versatile impact I’ve been replacing my yellow 18v tools as they’ve been dying with M12 tools. They’re well thought out, compact, powerful and user friendly. Its a joy using the M12 line! Just dove into the M18 line with the 5” brushless grinder and mid torque 1/2” impact. We use the 1/2” and 3/4” high torque impact wrenches at work and they are beasts! They work like a dog, take a beating and keep going! This convinced me to go red when replacing my yellows.
