I'm heavily invested into the M12 tools and own these two tools along with many more. These (2) tools aren't my favorite. I rarely use the screwdriver as the impact driver is superior in most applications. I also, rarely use the hackzall and am generally not very impressed with it. It is underpowered and vibrates significantly. For a quick cut here or there away from the shop it works but it certainly isn't something I would use if alternatives methods were available.

Just my $.02.

I'll have to agree with your statement for the implied use that the screwdriver was put to, def should've used an impact for that application.

I would also like to add that I purchased said screwdriver for working on my RC cars and it is marvelous!!!!!

You can make the damn thing so sensitive that you'll never worry about stripping a screw in the plastic chassis of many RC cars (or your specific low torque; dialed in project). I LOVE how gentile you can make this thing drive, no joke...

Def NOT for DRIVING screws, but perfect for low torque applications (think IKEA furnitureCool).

Seems like a good price but I agree with the above comment. The regular M12 hackzall is amongst my least favorite Milwaukee tools and I'm invested in the M12/18 line. It's small, but it's only good for cutting a hard to reach pipe you can't get off. I tried to cut a stud once, won't do that ever again. I don't have the screwdriver but figure that's a pretty specific application and you're better off with the fuel impact/drill kit at $180

The screwdriver is worthless. My cousin bought it for hanging blinds but it's so freaking slow, you could do it by hand faster.

Wow. So the general consensus of the room is that these tools aren't worth the asking price of 100.

Thanks for these comments, and I see similar sentiments from others. I thought the Hackzall looked like a great idea when it came out, and my initial thought was that this was a good price I should jump on. I'll pass I guess, and invest more in Ryobi One tools, which I am still impressed with after a couple years with a bunch of different tools.

Once you go impact you never go back, haha. I also have a dinky little 8V B+D impact that I only bought because it was like $12 on clearance, and that thing is surprisingly stout - it drives 3" wood screws shockingly well and is a great little screwdriver.

Yep. The brushless FUEL Sawzall is legit tho. That sucker is as strong as an 18v when it comes to 95% of the jobs. Heck, you could but all of these same items individually on eBay for about the same price. Not a good deal with the 1.5ah batteries that they're trying to clear out.

I got these, and I think they're great, but you have to match the tool to the job. The Hackzall isn't comparable to a full-sized sawzall, but if you have some downed tree limbs or need to be doing a lot of overhead or cramped work where you start to feel every ounce in your shoulder after a while, this is a great, lightweight solution. And I do have an impact driver as well as a drill with a clutch, but the M12 is way less bulky, and since most of my daily routine is light duty anyway, I'm keeping this as my "household" power screwdriver, and the others stay locked away in a Jobbox until they're needed.

I have the Fuel hackzall and it has helped me out in so many situations thanks to its size, This hackzall is even smaller. I read all the time that plumbers love this one. Granted it doesn't have the power of the Fuel but it can get into places the Fuel can not. Luckily I have not ran into a situation where the Fuel was too big. I haven't taken out my corded sawzall since I got the Fuel Hackzall. Sure some cuts take twice as long with the little hackzall, buts its still quicker than breaking out a the cord and the sawzall.

Ryobi brush-less tools are great homeowner tools. They are just so much cheaper than Milwaukee and they do a very good job. I have the 18g nailer which was 1/3 the price of Milwaukee's and is great. I have the planer which is decent, helped correct the 12 doors I needed to fix. Eyeing the pex crimping tool , need to add to and fix my sprinkler system.
If Ryobi's brushless hammer drill and impact driver weren't so huge I might of bought all Ryobi tools. However the M12 Fuel line is pretty amazing though.

Last year a similar deal was posted that I thought about getting in but wanted to try them first to see if they would fit my hand. I really don't have big hands. Glad I did. It didn't work at all for me. The non brushless ones hurt my hand just by holding them. The fit for me was poorest I've ever felt in a power tool. The brushless ones were nice but wasn't even close to being on sale.

Still waiting on the m12 ratchet brushless to get a steep discount. It isn't a need for me so that price would have to be epic for me to jump on it.

I would recommend the M12 fuel hackzall, just not the regular one. It's a bit bigger size but still good for and handed or limited space applications.
