Milwaukee Surge Review – M18 Quiet Hydraulic Driver 2760

Well Milwaukee Tool is at it again with another tool in their M18 line.  As you know, Milwaukee likes to think outside the box.  They want to design tools for the tradesmen to solve their problems and make their life easier.  When I say tradesmen, I am not talking about just electrical or plumbing, they are building tools for all the trades.  Milwaukee doesn’t look at designing a product based on the traditional methods, such as they will build it only if there is a big enough audience.  Instead Milwaukee looks at the problems tradesmen are facing and designs a product...

Milwaukee Gen 2 Fuel 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver – 2753

Milwaukee is bringing some bad a** tools to the market, not that they didn’t before, but I have to say these blow away their previous versions.  Now Milwaukee brought to market it’s Gen 2 Fuel 1/4″ Impact Driver, model 2753.  You can get this tool as a bare tool or with different battery configurations such as compact or XC batteries.  You can even get a kit with their new Gen 2 drill.  If you get this with the XC batteries, it comes with the new 5.0Ah batteries. Coming in at 1,800 in-lbs of torque, a user has more than...

Milwaukee 2nd Generation Impacts – First Look

If you watched our live feed from the Milwaukee event, you know we were pretty excited about the new 2nd generation of impact drivers and wrenches from Milwaukee.  They are smaller and more powerful.  If you notice on the impact driver, there is a cool new feature.  If you look at the close up picture you will see the same three speeds, but you will also notice a 4th button.  This fourth button is for self tapping screw mode.  Say you are installing metal studs and you are using self tapping screws.  Just press this button and the impact is...

Milwaukee M18 2750-22CT Compact Impact Driver

Well it’s about time.  Yes, Milwaukee came out with a compact impact driver (also a drill/driver and hammer drill, but that’s for next week).  I have been wanting a compact drill and impact for a while.  Now you know I am a big Milwaukee fan, but I did change my drill platform over to Dewalt.  Only reason is because they have a compact drill and impact.  Milwaukee has always had a bigger drill and it’s great for certain applications, but for smaller applications, who really needs all the weight and power?  Now don’t get me wrong, even though this...

Friday Night Tool Fight – Milwaukee vs Dewalt 12V Impact Driver

Friday is here and Tools in Action has another tool Fight.  This week we did 12V Impact Drivers, well just two of them.  We took the Milwaukee M12 Fuel vs the Dewalt 12V.  I am just going to cover a little of each tool and let the video do the rest of the talking. The Milwaukee M12 Impact is model 2453-20 (Bare) and 2453-22 (Kit).  The Dewalt model number is  DCF815 (Bare) and  DCF815S2 (Kit). Is this really comparing apples to apples?  No, because there are some significant differences.  However these are the top tools each company is offering...

Milwaukee M12 Fuel Impact Driver Review – 2453

I know I am going to sound like a broken record, but I believe Milwaukee truly has the best 12V platform around.  As technology becomes better, the motors and batteries will be able to do much more, which places Milwaukee in a huge advantage over its competitors.  Last year we saw these new 12V Fuel tools up close and we have to say we were pretty excited to get our hands on this Impact Driver. If you are not familiar with the Milwaukee Fuel line, it is basically a way to label their brushless tools.  So if you see...

Friday Night Tool Fight – Dewalt vs. Milwaukee Brushless Impact Drivers

We have been receiving a lot of emails about our tool fights and when we will be putting the Milwaukee against the Dewalt Impact Drivers.  Well we listened and gave it a shot.  Now before the emails come in saying we did this wrong or that wrong, let’s get a couple things straight.  We are not engineers, we are not scientists.  We are just two dudes who love tools and have fun with them.  There are so many ways to test tools such as torque, battery life and more.  Again, we are just having fun and yes we know...

Milwaukee M18 Brushless Impact Driver Review – 2653-20

I know when I make this statement we’re going to receive a lot of emails from people who both agree and disagree with my statement, kind of like Ford and Chevy lovers.  Okay here it is, this is the best power tool of 2012.  No, brushless isn’t new and no, the impact isn’t new, but when Milwaukee merged the brushless with the impact, balance, feel and power, they created the perfect tool.  Okay, now that I made this statement, bring the emails on.  Wait, never mind, let me explain first and then if you still have a beef with...

Milwaukee M18 Impact Driver – 2650-20

Another impact driver, you have to be kidding me.  Yes, we already did the Dewalt 20V impact driver and are in the process of doing the Ridgid impact driver.  Well, the Milwaukee M18 Impact 2650-20 is next on the chopping block.  This came with my new M18 Combo kit and out of all four tools, this was the one I was looking forward to playing with.  Actually all of them I couldn’t wait to play with. Once you use an impact, you will probably never go back to a drill to screw in fasteners ever again, especially if it’s...
