Depends on the tool.

Bosch SDS is magnitudes better than milwaukee SDS.

Milwaukee may make a higher spec'd heavy duty drill, but usually needs to be warrantied a few times, while the bosch drills just keep going.


In terms of longevity, quality, and robustness i think generally bosch beats milwaukee.

If you want the highest spec'd tool, pay and arm and leg, have all the upgrades with all the bells and whistles, and well marketed tool go with the milwaukee.

Can't really go wrong with either. They will both get you home at the end of the day.

In regards to "quality" they have frequently ranked as high if not higher than "Milwaukee", especially when it comes to their ergonomics, electronic systems, battery tech and reliability (percent of failure).

That being said, they do not have extensive 18v platform variety (ie: router, yard equipment, specialty tools, coffee pots, etc..)

Bottom line: I have this tool and if i had to have only 18v power tool, it would be this one because of its selectable torque. Close second, however, would be my Bosch 18v drill.

"max of 1,650 In.-Lbs. " So is that 1,650 ÷ 12 = 137.5 ft Lbs max professional power ?

I like it for its versatility. It doesn't have insano torque, but has been enough for lug nuts that are "stiff". I use a breaker bar to "break" and this to do the repeated work.

Does Amazon pay people like you to troll around the internet?

This is a great deal on a cool and very useful tool!

Did you notice it has a half inch drive for inject sockets... Since it's an impact driver and wrench?

It would be ideal so that you can have more of the same style batteries. However, unless you're planning large projects, two batteries would be plenty (and a single battery for your drill). I would say go with whatever brand drill you want, but convenience wise same brand is a good choice.
