Battery is 2.0ah.
This little guy can do up to 100 ft lbs of torque. Pretty impressive for only 12v

Same deal is available with the M12 FUEL hammer drill/driver instead of impact driver. Take your pick. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../301999123

Thanks, looks like a great deal. Anyone know if the hammer drill/driver would be overpowered for light duty household stuff? Like screws in sheetrock or small screws into studs?

Nah the M12 series is about as big as someone who is under 150lbs can handle for a few hours of work. You start buying the 18-24v models and you will find yourself shopping for a light weight 12v model as a side arm for long jobs.

I have a 24v rigid set with bad batteries, and im slowly replacing it with M12 fuels and non fuels. You just cant hand the 24v units to teens or your wife and expect good results.

Get an impact driver for doing anything that requires screws or fasteners. Way easier, faster, and less fatigue. Trying to use a hammer drill to drive screws is an exercise in frustration!

Guess if you're used to killing flies with a cannon then that makes sense.

A hammer driver is just a drill with an added hammer function. It can do anything a regular drill/driver would do, but it also has the extra hammer setting to get you through concrete material (not in the most effective way, but for most small projects it may be enough).

It will be plenty fine to drive anything on the smaller side of lag bolts. It will usually give you more control of the process with trigger modulation and chuck setting. And it wont ruin your hearing with the constant rattling of the anvil like an impact driver.

That being said, it's very nice to have both tools in your arsenal.

The 12v Hammer Drill is awesome for light and medium duty usage. Contrary to what many believe, the hammering function is for drilling into masonry, brick, etc. It IS NOT the same principle of an impact driver. The drill itself has 2 speeds, high and low and even more importantly a clutch that allows user to set at appropriate torque so as to not overdrive screws! If using to install into drywall, a couple of practice trials to determine screw depth wanted and then set it and forget it for the rest of the screws in the material.

Now if you were looking for something JUST for screwing in small screws like electrical faceplates repeatedly a small 3-5v battery powered screwdriver would be cheaper and a lot less weight however they are typically half the RPM speed and are worthless when needed for drilling any holes which is why many electricians and techs have both!

Not at all, in fact I think this is the best application for this thing (not the impact, the regular driver for sheetrock). I own it and often used it for 90% of tasks instead of my 18v stuff in a work environment. It's lighter, more compact, and still has enough strength for mostly all tasks. This covers you on pretty much all screws/bolts under 3" and under 3/8 shank

I think this combo deal is better at 50 dollars more. Has both impact and drill as well and extra batteries.

Never mind. Not fuel.

It's lower tier though, not the premium Fuel branded models.

Milwaukee already showed their gen2 M12 Fuel drill and drivers so I expect sales on the gen1 stuff from now on - and they've been often sold for $200 for a 3 tool combo (drill + driver + something extra like a ratchet, jigsaw etc).

Thanks for the info. In the end I ended up getting the combo instead - in store they threw in the $69 battery pack for free when buying the $199 combo of Both hammer drill/driver and impact.
