Not the FUEL version, but it is brushless and it's a great deal for a spare impact or a gift this Christmas.

Thats too hard for some people, they are the same people who need a variable speed orbital sander.

Ya if you can't control the speed and judge the torque by feel or sight.....then maybe you shouldn't be using power tools.

Lifetime warranty is always a discussion, I was given two free batteries when old ones wore down, replaced some Sawzall parts and a drill chuck all at zero cost to me, also have some Milwaukee drills that I like but majority is RIDGID because of the warranty.

I saw at HD last night that they have the Makita brushless impacts and drills with 1 3ah battery and a bag for the same price. I imagine dewalt will be have the same.
Thanks for the heads up! Went with Makita to match my drill Smilie

Will this work as an electric screwdriver around the house? How exactly does an impact driver differ from that? Thanks!

Impacts has a hammering action in addition to a twisting action vs just a twist action. They are good for bigger projects or repetitive driving of large fasteners and bolts. You should not drill holes with them. For around the house smaller projects, the regular drill is best suited. Of course having both is nice.

I suggest the 12v makita combo that is $100 at Home Depot right now. Based on the way you worded your question i think it will be perfect for you.

I'll tell you right now. I enjoy using this model 99% more then my Fuel Gen 3 Impact. Commerical Carpenter for a living metal studs hundred of screws a day. The mode selector is a PIA on the Fuel if you have larger hands. You will always accidentally tap the mode selector going from Mode 3 to 4 or 4 to 1 is the worst. Waste more time than anything check to see what mode I'm in after each screw. Check the picture's here to get an idea look at the pinky finger to where the selector is. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../305059614

Milwaukee really need to redesign the switch from Electric to Manual or put the switch on top of the Impact like the M12 Fuel. The Fuel has a little more Power with the better motor and a little more compact but at the end of the day its not needed for 90% task unless your driving larger screws all day. The only time I would want to use mode 1/2 is for Door Hardware screws but it's easily done with the feathering the trigger.

Anyways good price on this might grab for spare or sell my Fuel. During the Summer was a little better with the Impact and Compact Hammer Drill 2.0/4.0 Batteries and M18 Fan deal for $200.

Thanks! An impact driver sounds like it would have been helpful when I was installing child safety window guards, but a drill driver will have greater application if I have to choose just one, for now.

Why might someone opt for the brushless 2.0 Ah kit versus the other with 3.0 Ah battery? Is the brushless "compact" meaningfully smaller? They look a lot alike.

I don't need this right away, and have learned it makes sense to spend money on quality tools, so if there's a better model that might be available during BF with variable speed or features that help me not strip screws and the like, I'm happy to wait. I just don't know what that model would be.
