Milwaukee has their similar 12v system on sale for $99 at Home Depot, if you already have other Milwaukee 12v's. can't go wrong with either set in my opinion.

Which is considerably better? Makita or Milwukee? Also are these worth the buy? Can they (not the impact) drill through a 4x4 easily with the correct bit?

i did a lot of research between Makita and Milwaukee when I was looking to start my tool collection. generally speaking (not necessarily in the case of these 2 sets), they are pretty similar. i ended up going with Dewalt brushless line over Makita/Milwaukee, but only because I got a nice deal on a drill combo set and multitool.

how powerful 12v systems are, I cannot really say. i plan to do a lot of home renovation, so I went with 20v as they are more powerful and have a wider lineup of tools. i will say these 12v are lighter, less expensive and lighter can be better for arm fatigue if it's going to be powerful enough to do what you want.

your in a unique situation where there are 2 deals at once between the 2 brands. i would 1) determine if 12v is gonna be powerful enough for what you want, that's gonna be a deal breaker if not 2) determine if either brand has other tools you might want to get in their 12v lineup and 3) look back at previous 12v deals and see which brand historically has had better sales listed on SD.

Then weigh the options and choose which feels right. that would be my approach at least.

The Makita set has the ability to have the tool "stand up" on your work surface sturdily which the Milwaukee set can not.

I think that, and the increased comfort, is what gives the Makita set the edge.

12v tools are all about comfort and weight, not power. These are powerful enough for many tasks. If you think this 12v set isn't powerful enough, you're better off using an 18v tool.

I was originally a Makita fan but their 12V line is sorely lacking in terms of variety,,, hell they dont even have a proper hammer drill( I know hammer drill in 12 volt are you mad man.. but it works fine for what I need i.e. conduit/straps in cinder/concrete) Both will drive drywall screws through 4x4 fine but dont expect to go fast they are not as powerful as anything a 18v can put out.

This is a annoying feature of the old Makita and new 2 Amp Milwaukee M12s but when working at my bench I usually stick the 4 Ah battery in and back in business otherwise its strapped to my hip 8 hours a day.

YMMV.

The spindle on the Makita is so sloppy you can move the chuck up and down/side to side about 1/8". It's worthless for any precision work. I had to return it.

This Makita model is very light weight, not nearly as good as the 14.4 line which of course costs more money. My point being don't have a lot of expectation for what this drill can do. It will have average torque, low low torque at high setting and low run times...its the basic lower end tool made by a good company.

It looks like this deal is made even sweeter by the bonus XC battery pack bonus deal. I couldn't find a link online, but when in store today they had it listed by the Milwaukee tool combos. There's like 5 different items you can buy and receive the XC battery free as a bonus. So if you add the free XC battery that's another $79 value added to the deal..

Wrong! The XC battery promotion is for select M18 bundles.

No, wrong tool for the job. (unless you pre-loosen them with a breaker bar)
