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

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.

Brushless motor is somewhat the younger tech, it's more efficient and lasts longer than brushed motor variants. That's probably why they pair it with the 3aH battery. Go brushless, Milwaukee or dewalts are staple companies but just know that you are going all in on one brand since you are using their batteries. Milwaukee is a car guys brand and that's why I have them.

i think you can control the speed with the main button
This is true. Just use the trigger. Light pressure is slow, hi pressure is fast. Think gas pedal.

Not sure if I need drill or impact drill but definitely not the combo since I am just diy kind. I already have craftman bit set.

Will this work as an electric screwdriver around the house? How exactly does an impact driver differ from that? Thanks!
Another thing I didn't see mentioned, impact drivers don't strip screw heads as easily as a drill/basic electric screwdriver. When it reaches a certain torque the impact driver will use the impact action instead of slipping out. If you plan on screwing long screws or bolts into wood, an impact driver makes it a whole lot easier.

Not a bad set, but the Ryobi One set a few days ago was better...I'd wait on this one. JMO

owner of many, recently built 500+ sqft rooftop deck. Cannot say enough about Milwaukee products (used this driver to install all decking). Reliable, smooth, easy on the elbow, great battery life and quick charging. I do believe this brand is top if the food chain and you (usually) pay for it.

Sorry, cant say if price is good, I purchased as part of larger set of Milwaukee tools. But $100 seems worth it to me. Agree with previous posters, pick one wireless/battery brand and be prepared to stick with that brand for all of your battery tools.

M12 v. M18 all about power. M18 longer use, heavier jobs where the power is needed.

Dang so I have 40v DeWalt stuff (mowers), a drill/sawsall/circular 18v Skil kit, B&D edger... would be nice for something of mine to match, but DeWalt doesn't seem to make sense here, and it's not like it matters anyway. So Makita or Milwaukee then?

Would likely use for car stuff mostly (catch up on the junk I never get around to). So Milwaukee? Where does Makita stand? Are batteries for each pretty much the same or any significantly cheaper?

So DeWalt is 1700 in/lbs, Milwaukee 1600 and Makita 1500. Is that not real world accurate? They're probably made in the same factory anyway, right?

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.
This tipped me over the fence to purchase, thanks and thank you OP
