Couldn't get much better
Small and lightweight but packs a punch. I have used solidly, most days for a few years and it's still holding up very well. Hasnt required any parts replacement, never had any problems.
Where most other impacts use rubber plastic surrounding the Chuck, this is solid steel so only suffers scratches, no bits falling off exposing screws etc.
Expensive but good for trade.
I use this driver for trade use. A lot of good features but at the cost, I would want them. Can insert new driving tool with out pulling chuck collar back. Plenty of power. Has four speed options as well as variable speed trigger control. One very annoying thing I found is the reverse switch sits flush with the case. It is difficult to operate with out changing your grip. A lot of times I may do this every few seconds. It drove me crazy. In the end I put a blob of acrylic resin on the switch ends to build them up. Epoxy resin would probably do the same. I had a Hitachi equivalent before this and this one beats it hands down. Batteries easy to remove after applying some silicone spray. Lots of grunt for doing roofing. It is a bit shorter than some but also a bit heavier. The fuel gauge in the batteries is handy. It actually works good enough to be of use. The high cost is questionable.

Milwaukee impact driver
Sorry. One of the worst drivers I've had. Regularly overheats and stops working, trigger also seems to just stop working randomly and needs a jiggle to get it to go again. Not sever enough a problem to warrant putting in for repair but at $589 the set, missing my old panasonic.
Best tools out
I have owned this for about 1.5 years and it gets pretty much daily use. I was a bit skeptical about going with Milwaukee tools at first but did my research and decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did. After using this one I purchased other Milwaukee 'Fuel' cordless range including an impact driver, circular saw and 12v multi tool and will be adding the planer and grinder to the collection next. I am using the 4 AH batteries.
