Milwaukee 2650-22 User Reviews Highlights
This impact driver will drive a 6 inch deck screw with ease it will also torque bolts, lag bolts, and lag screws with no problem.
I have many of the M18 cordless tools. I can't sing the praises of these tools enough - especially this impact driver.
All in all, I think Milwaukee has a great tool here, along with much of their other M18 lineup.
This is a good strong tool. I love being able to check the battery status by simply pressing a button.
The battery slides on and off easily, its well balanced, and very comfortable. High torque motor and current most power for this type of tool make me comfortable saying that the rest need to play catch up.
