I prefer Makita, not a knock on other brands, just my preference. I own rental properties and did finish carpentry for a living.

The sub-compact line was made for tradesmen like electricians or plumbers who didn't need the bulk of some of the "beefier" models. Quite capable but their might be better options if you are spending the entire day driving cortex screws or drilling 5" holes through joists.

But yes, depending on your level of "fanboy" they are on par or better then what Milwaukee offers. Milwaukee tends to do a lot of advertising and marketing. Add "fuel" and/or "surge" to a product and they can get their user base to buy another drill/impact to replace a perfectly fine one.

But buy this because you want/need it. The resale values on these have tanked because promotions like or similar to this have been on going for nearly 6 months and the marketplaces are flooded
A couple years ago I bought one of Makita's subcompact kits like this for my home reno. I redid everything, kitchen, and bath down to studs and back up, and recently did my whole 800 sq ft basement. No this didn't get it done. WIthin 1 week I needed to drill a 1" hole and this kit couldn't muster enough power to spin a 1" paddle drill through a 2x4. I also needed to mix up some thinset in a bucket and it struggled with that. To the point I had to immediately stop as I thought I'd burn it up.

I took it back and got their "normal" brushless kit with two 4.0ah batteries and haven't looked back. Freaking love my Makita impact driver, drill, circular saw, and jigsaw. Can't wait to "upgrade" my Makita random orbital sander to the cordless variant.

I do some extreme DIY. For the vast majority of weekend warriors this kit will be awesome. It's lightweight and powerful for it's size. I suspect in 5 years this will be the standard size.

How do these Makita 18v subcompact compare to other tools, and how is overall performance? Would this be similar to the Milwaukee M18 brushless, non-Fuel version?

I really like the subcompacts compared to the full size drivers, especially the impact. I'd figure they do 90% what the full size can do, and then some because they fit better in tight quarters. In fact, I'd recommend this subcompact kit over the full size drivers for homeowner duty, hands down.

I've found little to no real operating differences using others' Milwaukee and Dewalt tools of similar size/design; they're all pretty great. I got started with makita stuff because they had all the lawn care tools i wanted (blowers, weed trimmers, etc) and on a one-for-one basis, the tools are slightly cheaper.

How do I just get the kit for $138.73? Do you just have to return the 5.0Ah battery?

Return the free item. You have to add free item to the cart separate from the main item. Then checkout and pay for both. You then return free item at the store or cancel it online about an hour or so after completing your order.

I cannot say enough good things about the Makita subcompact series. Even at the usual $199 price for this combo kit it punches way above its weight class. The impact driver in particular is a BEAST. It has never not been able to do a job, including driving literally hundreds of 3" Spax screws in an afternoon building multiple workbenches without changing the 2.0 battery once.

I have the more powerful XDT13 as well and typically use them together so I can have one bit in one impact and a different bit in another but the subcompact hangs with the XDT13 in everything I do. I honestly am tempted to just get a second set of this kit at this price. The impact can also be used as a normal electric screwdriver by just putting it in low.

The drill is fantastic for getting into tight spots and it handles most materials and bits up to 1/2" very well. I've even drilled plate steel with it, though it does get bogged down a bit and I prefer using my larger Makita XPH12Z for that type of work. The only negative I would say about the drill is that the chuck is plastic and you really need to be careful tightening it around smaller bits because you can very easily tighten it to the point you're stripping things. Even then though, still works like a charm.
