I just bought the combo m12 hex impact and drill with the free tool at home depot about a week ago. Got the ratchet as the free tool.

This is my first m12 tool, I have tons of M18 Fuel tools and was curious if anyone else has noticed the quality difference between the drills from m12 to the M18? (Possibly just designed different) My M18 hex impact fuel is wonderful no complaints but the M12 trigger just doesn't feel right to me. When depressed it doesn't feel completely depressed like a normal trigger switch and I can squeeze it fairly hard and it will actually go down a hair more and rev higher. Trying to find out if this is normal or what the deal with it is. Otherwise love the lightweightness of them. Plan to buy the M18 Framing nailer next. Wonder if it would be worth returning mine to get the surge for the same price.

I bought that exact deal from Home Depot and I don't have that issue. Is yours M12 fuel? If so, maybe try to return it for a new one. The quality is amazing on M12 fuel.

I'm also interested to know what others think about M12 or even M18 quality. I bought a whole bunch of M18 tools recently from all those HD deals (router, grinder, impact, drill) and the first thing I noticed was how much slop there is in the battery-tool connection. Also the rapid charger smelled like burning plastic when turned on, even before getting the battery incredibly hot.

I ultimately returned everything - the quality just didn't compare with the Makita stuff I've used. That's not to say the Milwaukee line doesn't have any advantages.

My M12 tools are fantastic. Even the non-fuel impact driver will handle 95% of what I ask, and it's small enough to fit in between studs and joists without any hassle.

There's no slop on the M12 battery connections in my experience.

Zero issue with that on any of my M12 fuel tools. The battery slot is tapered so the fit is pretty tight once the clip snaps in. In fact, removing the battery takes a little more effort than I'd prefer sometimes, but that's really not a valid complaint.

yeah, if literatemonkey is having issues with battery slop it definitely seems like something is wrong.

Good to know. I haven't actually tried the M12, only the M18.

I have a large collection of m12 tools that live in my truck. I've been using them regularly in a medium duty capacity for years now and I definitely have issues with batteries. I have at least 10 m12 batteries and on all of the Milwaukee branded ones are falling apart. The cases are absolute junk and the clips love to break off so you have to hold or tape it onto the tool. I've had no gripes with the knockoff amazon batteries except for cold weather performance, but I don't really work as hard as I used to so that's not a huge concern.
