What is the difference between Milwaukee M12 and M12 fuel?

M12 and M12 fuel are almost similar, the only difference being that they have different motor systems, where the M12 fuel has brushless, and the other has a brushed motor. As they have the same voltage, you can use their batteries interchangeably. The M12 brushless has a better performance than the standard M12.

Is the M12 fuel brushless?

Milwaukee is famous for its lines of M12™ 12-volt and M18™ 18-volt FUEL™ cordless tools that use REDLITHIUM® battery and brushless motor technology.

How much torque does a Milwaukee M12 Impact have?

The M12™ Cordless Lithium-Ion 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver features a Milwaukee® 4-pole motor and proprietary impact mechanism to provide 850 in-lbs of torque and more impacts per minute for maximum productivity and runtime. Weighing just 2.3 lbs, it’s tool-belt portable and small enough to fit in tight spaces.

Is Milwaukee surge better than fuel?

At nearly half the decibels and almost twice as fast the new Milwaukee M18 FUEL Surge hydraulic impact driver smoked its predecessor, the M18 FUEL ONE-Key impact driver in a head-to-head tool fight. The Surge is a quieter, faster and stronger impact driver.

What is the most powerful M12 impact?

Not only that, but they’re also the industry’s first cordless stubby impact wrenches. So what qualifies them as the most powerful? The 3/8″ and 1/2″ models boast 250 foot-pounds of nut-busting torque. The 1/4″ model drops down to 100 foot-pounds to protect the smaller drive size.

Is the M12 surge worth it?

In my experience, the M12 Surge doesn’t quite stand up to the performance of leading 18V-class cordless impact drivers, but it does provide enough power for most of my needs. And even when a larger tool might be faster, the M12 Surge is smaller and lighter, making it a better fit for tighter spaces or overhead tasks.
