CPO Outlets has Milwaukee tools for 15% off over $75.
Saw this kit for $160 after coupon. These are the Gen 2 Brushless. And the packout box seems pretty good. I was looking for these for automotive work. The impact has over 100 ft-lbs of torque!!

It helps that you gave your background, but for others like me, the response is still missing the point of why.

Why should I switch to the Fuel line, other than to be like you? Did you find the M12 insufficient in certain activities where the Fuel gave the extra difference?
If you have no qualms with your current m12 tools, don't change.

I might suggest just picking up a refurb/used hex impact of the fuel variety down the road. Judge for yourself. If you don't see a diff or value the diff, just offload it.

M12 Fuel are great tools. I hardly even use my 18v... If you're a pro, doing PRO things, then yeah, you probably need M18... but even then, some tasks, M12 is better. And for a compact powerful well built tool, M12 is awesome. I would recommend, if you go with this, invest in a 4ah battery as well. Gives impact/drill much more power.
HD had, and may still have a sale, on 6AH + 3AH (compact version) for $99.

They also had 2-pack of 3AH (compact) for ~$74

PSA - Batteries
Milwaukee has two styles of batteries for the m12 tools...

Stem/Post - these are the skinny small ones
1.5AH
2.0AH
3.0AH

XC - these are the type with extended "foot".
3.0AH
4.0AH
6.0AH

The 3.0AH come in both varieties. The bulkier XC 3.0AH also comes in the more compact Stem/Post style.

The 3.0AH and 6.0AH use higher capacity cells to achieve the higher energy content in the same physical space vs mainstream cells (1.5/2.0/3.0 XC non-post/4.0).

I recently upgraded from craftsman Nextec 12v to the regular M12. Well, the fuel are heavier so keep that in mind too. The Fuel drill supports 1/2" drill bits and hammer mode for drilling into concrete. The regular m12 is a 3/8" drill and non hammer mode. Fuel is just more powerful too. It's all about what you plan to do. I'm an above average DIY and for most cases the m12 regular works. I'm itching for fuel for the other features mentioned that I could use Ie bigger drill bit support and hammer mode at the cost of more weight

Are the Milwaukee shockwave bits worth it? The 55 piece? Any other accessories worth it with the 15% off?
15% does not apply to the kit with the bits

Sorry I didn't further clarify. As EKoz2020 said, CPO is an authorized reseller.
All warranty claims are handled direct through Milwaukee though.
Their warranty service is really good. I didn't even need a receipt for the hammer drill I smoked drilling a big hole thru stone... Which was totally my fault. It was an m18 fuel for the record. They use the date from the mfg by serial number if you don't have a receipt I think

Yep i've used the regular M12 for drywall work, concrete driling/driving tapcons, big lag bolts hanging stuff in my garage, its never let me down in terms of power. The heavier tools can probably do the work a bit faster or a few more times on a charge but im one man so i can only hang so many sheets of drywall before im exhausted anyway lol

Politely disagree with you.

You can remove a crank pulley bolt with the m12 fuel stubby.

No need for m18 if you have the m12 fuel system.

Plus the weight savings is amazing.
You might be able to remove MOST crank pulley bolts with the M12 fuel stubby. Having said that, with the amount of time you'll spend hammering at it you'll very likely reduce its working lifespan. OTOH my M18 Fuel high torque (2767) eats crank bolts for breakfast, including notoriously difficult Hondas, especially when paired with a Lisle harmonic balancer socket.

I have an M12 3/8 stub for engine bay and brake work, and it gets used 80% of the time. For people on a budget and can only get one, it's probably the best option. But for crank bolts and suspensions, especially if you work anywhere near the ocean or up north (both true for me), M18 is clearly the better tool. No, you don't NEED it... until you do!

I agree, this matches my experiences as well. I use my M12 stuff as much as I can, and use it most of the time. However, there are times, especially in the suspension, hub, brake knuckle assembly where rust has taken over and you need something with more torque. That's when I bust out my 18v stuff.

Also, if you're a DIY mechanic at home, you generally don't have a lift in your garage and can only jack your car up so much. I've had instances where the breaker bar would hit my concrete floor or wheel well, and I had to use my air impact back in the day. Now, I use my breaker bar as a last resort and use my electric impact as much as I can, but maybe I'm just getting lazy.....Cool

keep it. Love my Makita and have been running them for over a decade still going strong. It does depend on what you plan on using it for.

I have about half a dozen M12 tools already including the basic drill. I like to do basic work on cars (always used manual wrenches) and also plan on finishing my basement this summer. Any advice on if I should jump on this set or upgrade to the M18 hammer drill and impact?

https://www.cpooutlets.com/milwau...-22po.html [cpooutlets.com]
I have this set and M18 Fuel (gen 2). I rarely use my M18 impact, it is used only when I need to drive self tapping screws into heavy steel or as a loaner to apprentices. The M12 drill works well enough but just doesn't have the power do drive large hole saws, ship auger bits, or cable bits. It works for small holes in thin materials but doesn't have enough torque for me to not have the M18 as well.
