Best Milwaukee Combo Kit Overall
M18 Fuel Brushless 6-Piece Tool Set
Milwaukee offers a 6 piece M18 Fuel combo kit at The Home Depot, the best overall if you want to use an M18 battery system. Typically, we like what we call a beginner's general contractor's tool kit: hammer drill, impact driver, circular saw, and reciprocating saw. Milwaukee ups the ante, including its high-torque impact wrench, which sells for about $450 on its own. They even come with decent LED work lights. All tools are brushless and this set contains the same Gen 4 tools found in the M18 Fuel Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit.

- 2953-20 M18 Fuel Impact Driver

Best M18 Fuel Drill and Drive Combo Kit
M18 Fuel Gen 4 Impact Drill and Impact Driver Set 3697-22
A hammer drill and impact driver is a basic combination kit for any brand. Now in its 4th generation, Milwaukee's flagship M18 fuel package offers the perfect combination of size and performance.
The Milwaukee 2904 Hammer Drill has a top speed of 2100 RPM and 1400 in-lbs of torque, plus it features an advanced kickback control system. All that, and it's only 6.9 inches long, weighs 4.9 pounds, and has a 5.0Ah battery.
The Milwaukee 2953 Impact Driver boasts speeds up to 3900 RPM, 2000 in-lbs of torque, 4400 IPM and 4 control modes including assist. It's just under 4.5 inches long, weighs 3.8 pounds, and has a 5.0Ah battery.

Best M12 Fuel Drill and Drive Combo Kit
M12 Fuel Gen 4 Impact Drill and Impact Driver Set 3697-22
If the M12 system from Milwaukee is more your style, the M12 Fuel Flagship Combo is a simultaneous upgrade to the M18 Fuel Package. Now in their 3rd generation, both tools aim to increase power while reducing size.
The Milwaukee 3404 Hammer Drill now has 400 inch-pounds of torque and a top speed of 1550 RPM. Power has increased by 14%, but the length of the bit has decreased by 0.8 inches to 5.9 inches. It's also slightly lighter at 2.6 pounds and has a 2.0Ah battery.
Turning to the Milwaukee 3453 impact driver, it's a similar story. Its torque has increased by 15 percent, jumping to 1500 in-lbs. It also gained some speed and now tops out at 3600 RPM. Its size difference isn't as dramatic, but it's still compact at just 5 inches long. Weight is also down slightly, at 2.0 pounds with the 2.0Ah battery.

Best Value Milwaukee Combo Kits
M18 6-piece tool set 2696-26
When it comes to value, we're looking for great bang for your buck. For Milwaukee, we turned to their flashing tool, which gets you into the M18 platform and lets you upgrade later if needed. You'll find some compromises in high-end performance, but you can get better for the price without sacrificing too much.
This 6-tool combo kit should provide remodelers and home repair experts with a great basic setup. It includes the drills, impacts, drivers, and circular saws we love to see in a general contractor's tool kit. The reciprocating saw is a full size M18 Sawzall so you can get more done. You also get an angle grinder and a handy LED light. The kit includes two 3.0Ah XC batteries that you can swap out and recharge while you work.

Best Milwaukee Combo Kits for Electricians
M18 Force Logic 6 Ton Knockout Kit with 2829 Compact Band Saw
Milwaukee built a combo kit specifically for electricians and the electrical boxes they had to install. First up is the 2677 M18 Force Logic 6 ton knockout tool and a punch/die set covering 1/2" to 4" holes. Then it added the compact bandsaw (2829 with single trigger) for good measure.
Of course, you can get the same stripping tool and die set without the band saw for $1600. They also have kits with rebar benders and even one-handed reciprocating saws. this is your choice.

Best Milwaukee Plumber Combo Kits
M12 Drill Impact Driver Combo Kit with Blower, HackZall, Jigsaw and Multitool
We love this M12 cordless tool set from Milwaukee. While it doesn't include any M12 FUEL tools, it just covers the base nicely. No one does MEP (Maintenance, Electrical, and Plumbing) power tool needs like Milwaukee, and it shows in this comprehensive tool kit. Designed to help plumbers in the preliminary stages of construction, you get almost everything you need without bogging down your rig with larger 18V tools.
The jigsaw is responsible for cutting the gutter, while the oscillating multi-tool lets you get out of clogs that other tools simply can't cut (did you see what I did there?) Driveway – so we'd love to see that included too . Finally, you can get a couple of M12 batteries to keep you running all day.

Best Milwaukee Car Combo Kits
M12 Fuel Impact Wrench and Ratchet Set
We were having a hard time deciding which Milwaukee combo kit would be our mechanic's top choice. It boils down to the M12 Fuel Impact Wrench and Ratchet Set or the M18 Fuel 3 Impact Wrench Set. We're still not 100% united on the final decision, so if you can make a decision, take both.
The M12 Fuel set includes Milwaukee's impressive 3/8" stubby impact wrench with 250 foot-pounds of torque. Along with it, you have two M12 Fuel 3/8 ratchets: standard and extended. Both hit 200 RPM and have 55 foot-pounds of torque, so you get the same performance characteristics when you switch between them.
