Used these for a year, and they are not good enough for scaffolders. The batteries are ace, but the unit isn't built for it. Milwaukee customers service is also poor in comparison to its rivals. Suitable for DIYers and mechanics at best.

Now running the new Makita to see how that copes, so far so good.

Sorry BBT

Hi scaffs across the country. I am currently testing for Milwaukee themselves a prototype version of the m18 FIW12p502
TTI sent it to me on 2nd June this year with 1X 5.0ah and one 4.0ah. These made the tool a little heavy so I asked them to send me a 2.0ah which they did and I have never looked back.
This tool is truly the best wrench bar none I have used to date.
One full charge of the 2.0ah will erect & dismantle two standard terraced houses with power to spare .
I have been a scaffolder over 30 years now & this wrench has changed every aspect of my working day (makes work easy).
I can verify that I am working with Milwaukee ,
If any questions please ask
