Not sure if you should pick up a Milwaukee Impact Driver? Well, you should!
The 2753-22 Milwaukee Impact Driver kit is an impressive offering from our favorite tool company (we un-apologetically love Milwaukee tools). It has everything you would want in an impact driver and at a great price.
This all in one kit is more than enough to get you going with the Milwaukee platform if you don’t yet have any Milwaukee Tools. And if you do, this kit comes with quite a lot to add to your collection at a decent price.
We love this Milwaukee Impact Driver so much that we ranked it as #1 on our Best Impact Driver list.
What are the features?
An Adjustable 4 Speed Setting
The 2753-22 Milwaukee Impact Driver comes with 4 adjustable driver settings. The first mode delivers 0-850 RPM in Mode 1, 0-2100 RPM in Mode 2, and 0-3000 RPM in Mode 3. There 4th mode is an additional mode specifically used for driving self tapping screws.
Manufacturers have begun adding adjustable speed settings for impact drivers because of the insane amount of power they can deliver. For some novices it can be too much to handle with finesse.
Self-Tapping Screw Mode:
Milwaukee’s Self-Tapping Screw Mode is designed to reduce walking when starting self-tapping screws as well as reduce overdriving, breaking, and stripping out of screws.
The mode is set up to provide a controlled start, followed up by a quick drive, and then a controlled finish, which slows the driver down to prevent over-driving or the snapping/stripping of screws.
LED Lights are pretty standard on most decent impact drivers these days, but they are still worth mentioning.
This LED light will turn on when the trigger is pulled, and remain on for a few seconds after the last time the trigger was pulled.
These lights will help you see while you’re working, however, the light is located between head shaft of the tool and the trigger. Shadows will often occur and you will not be able to adequately illuminate the necessary areas in all situations. Dewalt and Rigid both now offer tools with 3 lights that circle the head shaft of the tool and provide much better lighting.

The 2753-22 Milwaukee Impact Driver really performs well when compared against other impact driver in the market. The tool is competitive in pretty much every category and is available at an amazing price of only $249.
While the Dewalt DCF887 is available for only $199, we feel that you get your money’s worth with the extra $50 that is spent because of the much better batteries and the 5 year warranty that comes with this kit (the Dewalt kit only has a 3 year warranty)
When compared against all of the other kits in this price range, we found that this was the best all-around kit that you could get for your money.
Overall Score: 9.1/10
Perfect. That’s all we can say about this set. Milwaukee has gotten everything right.
