The best part of the 12v is when you get the screw half way in, then it kills, then you just start spinning the drill around in circles to finish it while you hope it breaks so you can go get the 18v fuel surge.
This is an impact driver. It doesn't spin when the screw hits resistance. Impact drivers can push the screw right through the board if you pull the trigger long enough. I have the Milwaukee basic / less powerful M12 Impact driver (Not Fuel) and it has no problem driving screws.

I have this set. The 4.0 battery makes all the difference when you're driving 3 in. long screws into 4x4s. It's otherwise a great tool.

Is everyone in this thread high or what?

The M12 fuel impact is probably the most-used tool in my collection - I've driven tens of thousands of screws of all lengths with it and it's never let me down. Once I picked up this impact driver, I rarely grab the M18 Fuel. I've got the M12 surge for the wife and it's great as well, but this tool kicks ass.

Anyone who says this isn't going to hold up or drive long screws just spends their time watching YouTube videos about tools and doesn't actually use them. You won't be disappointed and for $99 I'm tempted to get another one to keep in the house...

I have. I also have the 18v Fuel and surge. While not as powerful as the 18, It's a fine tool.

Oddly th m18 surge's head is shorter than the m12's. The m18 is larger in diameter though. After seeing that the sizing is similar, I see no reason to owne the smaller one.

This is correct. If you use the puny batter the leds light up like a Christmas light.

Alot of judgement given for anyone that's had a different experience than yours. I love Milwaukee tools, just ordered a few more m18 fuels, but my experiences with a few of my m12s have been disappointing. Great if I'm looking for something basic to hang a picture in drywall or something, but not medium to heavy duty jobs. Not dissing Milwaukee or the tool, just doesn't suit my needs. No need to insult.
U r talking about this tool like its some black & decker weak tool for instance your comment about using it for hanging pictures. Either you truly never used it or had a defective unit and you're judging all the M12 fuel tool to be garbage based on one bad tool.

I'm not...Although I get the reference to black /decker cause I've used crappy jig saws and weak underpowered drills/drivers from them too. maybe the few Milwaukee m12s I have used were defective. Who knows. Still, I'll continue to hold out for the m18 fuel deals instead. To each their own.

All this malarkey about this not being powerful enough is BS. I have far too many drills/drivers including this impact along with the 18v fuel impact and this gets much more use. The obsession with driving with so much power is absurd. Drill a pilot and drive the fastener. I use my 12v fuel hammer to pilot, this to countersink and I actually drive with my m12 installation driver because I have grown tired of the sound of the impacts. If I am driving something that needs muscle, the m12 impact is usually up to the task. Proper pilot holes make a big difference. If I need more muscle I use an 18v drill/driver before grabbing the m18 fuel impact. I do not have a surge to compare to any of my drill/drivers soundwise. If any of you have had to drive many fasteners in 1 work session you would know what I am talking about. If it's just for small short projects, I say save money and find deals on the skil 12v which are capable and often had for SUPER cheap. Sorry for long post
