Have the fuel brushless hammer driver in M12 size and a bunch of smaller batteries for the hoodie and whatnot. Also figured this to be a good price for growing my M12 collection.
My first M12 was the fuel hammer drill too. While the power is great, the electronic clutch blows. That slight delay before clutching out drove me spare

I understand the difference between a screwdriver and the hex impact. But they weigh the same and are the same size?
The impact can be too harsh for some circumstances. The screw is of low quality or strips easily because of the design. Also, I made the mistake of running down tapcons into a cement wall and stripped the threads and lost retention before I knew it. Had to go up a hole size.

When you have a pre-threaded hole in good condition, you want to run the bolt down smoothly with a controlled final torque from the clutch.

I pretty much always try to use a drill over an impact first. If you're sinking in self-tapping wood screws or have a rusted bolt or you just can't make it go and it's a "get 'er done" situation, then I go for an impact.

Basically over torquing can strip the screw or bolt or damage the thread retention (possibly irreparably).

Thanks for this. I don't own an impact and have wondered if I'm missing out. From your description, I see I'm not. Repped

I got the Dewalt DCF6100S2 [homedepot.com] for $49.99. Is this a better choice?

At Lowes. It's $39.99 now YMMV but I was wondering more about the tool itself. Is Milwaukee a better 12V drill?

In for 1. Thanks, OP.

I have the 1/4" fuel impact which is a beast. I stripped a couple of screw heads with that.

This should be much better for normal screw-driving duties.

I like the form factor of the smaller batteries in the Milwaukee. Plus the heater apparel, does DeWalt have those?

I tend to not see the value of this item if one has a drill / driver already along with an impact. These seem sort of obsolete to me.
