WOOD magazine review

Brushless motor delivers test-topping results

Review Summary

The first 12-volt impact driver with a brushless motor, this M12 Fuel model delivered test-topping benefits among similar 12-volt Li-Ion impacts: the greatest torque, fastest per-screw drive speed, longest per-charge run time (double the runner-up DeWalt), and the coolest operating temperature. Its two-mode gearbox lets you choose the best torque and speed for the fasteners you’re using without having to rely on the trigger alone.
It comes with a 5-year warranty on the tool and 2 years for the battery packs. You get a belt hook too.
