I made a little video this morning to compare some new Milwaukee tools I purchased.  I've been wanting to do some instructional type videos like this for the past couple years and finally decided to just do it.  You gotta start somewhere.  I was actually caught off guard by how well the small 12v stuff did.  I expected it to struggle more.  Feel free to critic the video or ask questions about the tools.

Well I learned something new. I’ve got four Milwaukee impacts. An old M12, way before Fuel, pretty sure it’s a first gen. An old pre Fuel M18 with the hex chuck, and a newer Fuel version of the same. Last one looks to be the same Fuel 1/2” mid torque from your video. I never bothered to try anything but the 1/2” on lug nuts or bigger, I just assumed they wouldn’t be up to the task. Tried them out tonight, no problem for any of the M18’s. Too much for the old M12, I don’t think that was rated for more than around 40 ftlbs. I tried them all on small 2.0ah batteries, but I don’t thing it should make much difference. The larger batteries should put out the same power, just for much longer.

I'm glad you got something out of it.  I'm thinking about doing a part 2 with truck lug nuts for a little bit more of a test.
