    I purchased this impact May of 2012. I am a professional mechanic and use this tool for work. The batteries have good life to a charge and I have found I like the light but these are all I like about this tool. Mine has no more power than the 12 volt John Deere (made by Hitachi) it replaced. Milwaukee rates this tool to have 2200 in-lb (about 180 lb-ft) of torque. Most of the guys I work with have Snap-on 14.4 volt impacts, rated at 150 lb-ft I believe. When comparing power I can say for sure that the Snap-on impacts will run circles around mine. Add to this that the rubber handle has reacted to oil exposure (who would guess that this tool would be exposed to oil?) and is coming loose from the plastic handle. The John Deere I used for over 5 years did not look as bad as this thing does after less than a year of use. Will probably have it sent in for warranty work, hopefully it can be fixed and live up to it’s claims. I truly wish I would have spent an extra $150 and bought a Snap-on.
    Update-
    Finally took the tool in for repair on July 5,2013. When I left the tool I was told the handle coming apart was not a warrant-able failure but they would check on the power issue. After waiting 3 weeks I called the repair facility to ask what the status was. I was told that a Milwaukee rep. had inspected the tool and the power level was “close to spec.” Was also told they had ordered a new impact mechanism that was on back order. Tool finally repaired Aug. 2,2013 and picked up the following day. Was pleasantly surprised that the handle was replaced and all repairs were covered under warranty. I have used the tool for a week now and can say that I believe that this tool has never had as much power as it does now. At this point it will remove a 16mm fastener tightened to 170 lb-ft. How long this will continue is unknown. Two of my coworkers have these, both feel theirs have lost power from new. Both are between 1-2 years old like mine. One had to put new brushes in his at his own expense, apparently brushes are covered under warranty. I also am somewhat apprehensive about the handle. I feel I need to be a little careful what I expose the handle to to prevent it from falling apart. I raised my review from one to 2 stars. I did not raise it higher because I fear that the same issues I had repaired are somewhat likely to return. Time will tell.

    As a farmer and owner of a powersports repair shop I have almost every tool you can buy big to small, be it pneumatic, electric, battery, or hand, and few things in a tool surprise me after 20+ years as a mechanic. But, this M-18 volt line up (have drill also) has completely gone time and again over what my expectations for it were. I added this to the tool fleet as an addition and to be replacement for a 3/8″ anvil 12 volt Dewalt that has been outstanding for 3+ years of commercial service life. The Dewalt batteries are getting bad and I figured a little more power in the next one would be good. Having a Milwaukee Sawzall that’s been through WW3 and came back fine after 10 years I had no trouble buying Red. The first time I used this impact I knew that it was going to be without a doubt my new go to tool. I have learned that now I use this as tear down tool and use the 12 volt Dewalt as an assembly tool because this thing is so torquey it’s hard to tell how much you’re over tightening your fasteners. Breaks 1/4-20 bolts with ease and I have broke a few 5/16″ bolts that were rusty.
