Milwaukee M18 Fuel 18V Brushless Impact Driver M18FID £79.99 @ Powertoolmate

Cheapest price I could find, even cheaper than eBay!

Here is the correct link to the deal: powertoolmate.co.uk/Pro…D-0

I couldn't decide whether to get this, the DeWalt 887 or the M18FID One Key but ended up ordering this after some research and watching some YouTube videos.

The mode 1 on the DeWalt looked ridiculous. The One Key looked cool but I didn't like the fact that people are reporting that the driver slowly drains the lithium battery if you leave it in the driver (to keep the coin cell topped up presumably) - that would get annoying. Plus I don't have a job in mind where I will be driving hundreds of screws into delicate materials so I decided to save the £27 (where it would come in to its own as you could set the torque and speed low and save that to the tool).

I also went for the fast charger from the same shop, cheapest price I could find again:

The 5.0 Ah battery I had my eye on went out of stock on their website before I ordered so I used their eBay shop and paid £3 more to get a >£5 bit set bundle. Amazon have this on pre-order for Prime members only at £57.99 and Powertoolmate themselves do it alone for £56.99. I thought the bit set was worth the £3 so went for this: ebay.co.uk/itm…606

I have the dewalt 887 and I use mode 1 nearly all the time.
Great price!
I was told once that if any tool from these people breaks or has something wrong with it, you just send it back to them and they will replace it for free at anytime, maybe you just pay postage?

Milwaukee have a good warranty if you register the tool on their website when it's been delivered (can't remember how many years it is, maybe 3 for the tool and 2 for the batteries). Don't know about the shop but as the manufacturer's warranty is so good with the shop I was more concerned with getting the best price. Good news if they are also great!

Only a couple of days ago I regarded Toolstation and Screwfix as having prices as good as you're going to get.... Toolstation stock Milwaukee but their kits are super expensive (IIRC over £400 for an M18 NON Fuel Recip Saw with 2 off 4.0 Ah batteries and charger when the saw is £113.99 elsewhere for the FUEL, 5.0 Ah batteries £56.99 each and charger £29.99)! It's worth doing your research for sure.

You need to upgrade your tools to Milwaukee, I use to swear by Dewalt but then I was introduced to Milwaukee tools and I have never looked back. Milwaukee all the way mate

I tried the Milwaukee 12v dual kit that Toolstation were selling for £150. The impact driver was useless. It had no oomph at all. And the combi drill did not work at all - DOA! I took it back for a refund and bought the 18v dewalt kit for double the price. No comparison, as at least the dewalt stuff works.

I'm not saying Milwaukee are no good, just that I was very, very unimpressed by their 12v kit.
Yes you are right the 12v kit is useless to be honest but the 18v kit is unbelievable, and to be honest the Dewalt you mentioned is very impressive too,

The 12v stuff isn't useless at all, it just has its place. I've got both 12v and 18v, and use them equally. There's a time and a place for the 12v stuff, just as there is for the 18v. If you take a 12v tool and try and make it do a job demanding of an 18v, that's user error, not a fault with the tool.

Good spot.

There's a spare right parenthesis in your ebay link, goes to nowhere as is:

ebay.co.uk/itm…606

That's a corrected link to the battery and bit set.
I am still hunting for the brushless drill and driver kit (18volt )

Is it not the case that even when the kits are on offer it's cheaper to buy separately? Especially if you don't buy the case.

Could buy a bag like this instead of the case and fit a few tools in: powertoolmate.co.uk/Pro…18B

I don't want the case I just want the drill and driver (battery's are optional as I have a few )
