Identical to the Bosch and DeWalt in performance and features, the Milwaukee M12 tools missed out on a Best Value pick because of their added size and weight, and the single LED on the driver. Like its big brother (Fuel), the M12 drill has a metal chuck, an industrial feature that promises more durability.
