I work in asbestos and have to do a lot frames and set up with 2x4s. I use this same drill and battery. They have not let me down. I'm surprised with the efficiency of the xr line and the tiny battery.

I'm not sure if I just got a bad one or if I was expecting too much but it couldn't take off the lug bolts on my wheel on any of the settings, just clicked.

I ended up returning it since that was my main use
An impact driver is not made for removing lugs — and that's true regardless of 12v or even 18v tools. Some 18v impacts can, but that would be on occasion, not their sole use. You want to remove lug nuts, you want an impact wrench. The Milwaukee "stubby" 12v impact wrenches, for example, are awesome, and can handle that task with ease.

Any trouble screwing into studs or deck boards with the 12v?
considering the compact brushed lines can do this easily i should think the brushless is similarly well equipped. 1450 in-lb on this bad boy vs the Milwaukee M12 at 1000 (which i own and can drive 3" and 4" construction screws into studs all day long)

I don't think this was ever intended for that type of job.

Thanks, that's exactly where my confusion was.. I thought this was an impact wrench!
I need to read more carefully before I buy and try and complain

Compared to the 12v tools they replace, the new Dewalt 12v stuff is certainly a step in the right direction. For techs, remodeling, home tasks, etc. 12v stuff can do maybe 80%? 90% of the work of your larger 20v stuff, but in an incredibly small lightweight package.

Current gen brushless 12v tools are just as powerful as 18v tools from several years back.

If you already have yellow tools, and you can use the 12v/20v charger, I think these are compelling. I do think Milwaukee's line drastically trumps Dewalt at this point, but in terms of ergonomics, I think the 12v Dewalt stuff is near perfect. The M12 stuff is admittedly fatter and less maneuverable.

Not sure why anyone would go with this when you could get the Bosch 12v set for the same price or less. My Bosch set is used commercially daily and has changed my life

You're asking too much from this little tool. I have the 3/8 impact wrench and that won't even take off the lug bolts. Great for other bolts and nuts, but not lug bolts.

wow, i'm glad you said something, I'd never really looked up the purpose of an impact driver and always just used a drill for jobs around the house.

Bought 4 last week's. Don't buy the drill and impact for $170. Get the individuals ones for about ten more for both but you get two extra batteries

Yes and No but depends on the use. Yes in a pinch you can screw something in with a impact driver but it has way more torque and you want to have a clutch to cut it off, Like the drill/driver will have, so you don't break smaller more delicate things like a light switch covers or outlet covers.

If you're not driving long screws or lag bolts you probably don't need this. Get a drill/driver or a plain cordless screw driver.

I have the regular 12v versions and I don't have issues driving 3" - 3.5". However, I didn't do an entire deck with it of course. I would reach for the 18-20v for the bigger projects.

This version should be stronger but I would still pick the 12v regular or the 20v. This is kind of inbetween. If you need more power at the cost of added weight, get the 20v.
