Milwaukee has come out with a new cordless power tool for the 2020 Holiday shopping season. This looks to be an early Black Friday deal, and a very good one at that. If you’re interested, don’t dawdle.
This special buy Milwaukee M18 Fuel impact driver combo bundle, 2853-22PO, is on sale for $199.
Milwaukee 2853-22PO Kit Contents:
- M18 Fuel impact driver
- Brushless motor
- 2,000 in-lbs max torque
- 4-mode Drive Control settings
- (2) compact 3.0Ah High Output batteries
- Multi-voltage charger
- Packout tool box with customizable foam insert
There are different versions of this Milwaukee M18 Fuel brushless motor impact driver kit. The 2853 impact driver is usually bundled with either compact 2.0Ah batteries or XC 5.0Ah batteries, with pricing ranging from $229 to $299, and inside a blow molded case
With this new deal, here is what’s special about it:
1. You get a fantastic brushless motor impact driver.
2. You get premium compact 3.0Ah High Output batteries.
3. You get a Packout tool box.
4. The price is lower than for other M18 Fuel 2853 impact driver kits.
You get higher capacity batteries compared to the 2.0Ah batteries that are included in the $229 kit, and just like the XC batteries that are bundled in the $299 kit, they can be used in heavier duty tools.
Just the Batteries: $129 via Tool Nut
There’s a small downside – compact High Output batteries are a little larger and heavier than compact batteries, but they’re lighter and shorter than XC batteries. Milwaukee compact High Output batteries are said to provide XC-level performance.

Got that? The batteries deliver more power and runtime compared to the ones in the $229 kit.
And, you get the modular Milwaukee Packout tool box instead of a simple blow molded case.

There’s not much left to dissect. Basically, you get a step-up in batteries, an upgraded tool case, and on top of all that, the price is discounted.
Compared to the regular Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2853 cordless impact driver kits, this special buy gives you more and at a lower price.
At the time of this posting, International Tool has the best pricing, thanks to their active $20 off $100+ sale.
NOTE: It seems that you don’t get the typical customizable foam insert, but a pre-cut insert. Thanks to Moogleman for the update – head to the comments for more discussion about this.
But $199 is Too Much!
If your budget is only $99, consider the Milwaukee 2850-21P special buy, featuring the M18 compact brushless impact driver with charger, tool bag, and compact Li-ion battery.
Compared to the M18 Fuel kit above, the max torque is lower (1600 in-lbs), and you only get one speed/torque setting instead of 4.
This kit comes with a compact 2.0Ah battery.
This is a very good impact driver, and $99 is a great price for this 1-battery kit.
In case you need some impact-rated screwdriver bits to go along with either of these impact drivers:
