Get The Right Tool

Milwaukee M12 FUEL Hammer Drill & Impact Driver Combo 2598-22 Vs Bosch 12-voltWe are always preaching for users to get the right tool for the job.  Service MEP, MRO, and HVAC professionals will find the M12 FUEL drilling and driving solutions easily satisfy as their primary tools because the work they do requires portable, compact, and lightweight and powerful tools. Tradesmen such as New Construction Electricians & Mechanical Contractors who frequently encounter high demand applications will likely turn to M18 as their primary tools but will find great benefit in also adding M12 drilling and driving solutions to their arsenal for finish work and other lighter demand applications.  We no longer see 12-volt tools as a lesser platform than 18-volt.  Milwaukee’s M12 line if full of very compact and powerful tools designed to help professionals get their job done in the safest and ergonomic way.

Milwaukee M12 FUEL Hammer Drill & Impact Driver Combo 2598-22 Vs Bosch 12-voltMilwaukee Tool’s new M12 Fuel Combo kits provide the user with compact tools that pack a punch.  Don’t let the compact size fool you!  Inside that tool lives all the power that may ever ask for to complete most jobs.  We were driving 6-inch lag bolts with the impact driver at a very acceptable speed.  You could compare that tool against other 18-volt tools in many ways.  The drills in these kits come with 1/2″ metal chucks to allow for use of any bit you might need to use in a pinch.  You will not find any plastic 3/8″ chucks here!  Pending if you want a hammer drill or not, there are two different kits available.

Battle of 12-volt Tools

Milwaukee M12 FUEL Hammer Drill & Impact Driver Combo 2598-22 Vs Bosch 12-voltTo give you a better idea of the size and power of these tools we incorporated a Bosch 12 volt drill and impact driver into the comparison.  That comparison is best seen in our video!  while the tools are fairly close in size, the power output is not the same.  Milwaukee Tool incorporated more options, better build quality, more power and battery choices to easily win this competition.

No matter what you do, smaller, lightweight tools can help increase productivity.  This Milwaukee Fuel kit is well worth a look!
