Save Money By Getting Your Hands On A Milwaukee Combo Kit

If you’re on the Milwaukee battery platform and want to expand your tool offerings, there’s no better way to jump in headfirst than with the purchase of a combo kit. Whether you’re looking for trade-specific tools or a general starting point for your toolbox, our team put our heads together to pick out the best Milwaukee combo kits available this year.


Best Milwaukee Combo Kit Overall

M18 Fuel 6-Piece Set

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit Overall

Milwaukee has a 6-piece M18 Fuel combo kit available at The Home Depot that is the best overall if you’re looking to jump into the M18 battery system. Normally, we like what we call a General Contractor’s Kit for starters: hammer drill, impact driver, circular saw, and reciprocating saw. Milwaukee ups the ante by including its mid-torque impact wrench and an angle grinder. All the tools are brushless and this set includes the 4th generation M18 Fuel hammer drill and impact driver.

Best M18 Fuel Drilling and Driving Combo Kit

M18 Fuel Gen 4 Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Set 3697-22

Gen 4 Milwaukee M18 Fuel Set

A hammer drill and impact driver is the foundational combo kit for any brand. Milwaukee’s flagship M18 Fuel set is now in its 4th generation and features a fantastic combination of size and performance.

The Milwaukee 2904 hammer drill tops out at 2100 RPM and 1400 in-lbs of torque, plus it has an advanced kickback control system. All that and it’s just 6.9 inches long and weighs 4.9 pounds with a 5.0Ah battery.

The Milwaukee 2953 impact driver jumps up in speed to 3900 RPM with 2000 in-lbs of torque, 4400 IPM, and 4 control modes, including an assist mode. It’s just under 4.5 inches long and weighs 3.8 pounds with a 5.0Ah battery.

Best M12 Fuel Drilling and Driving Combo Kit

M12 Fuel Gen 3 Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Set 3697-22

Gen 3 Milwaukee M12 Fuel Set

If Milwaukee’s M12 system is more your style, the M12 Fuel flagship combo got an upgrade at the same time as the M18 Fuel set. Now in its 3rd generation, both tools target an increase in power while dropping size.

The Milwaukee 3404 hammer drill now has 400 in-lbs of torque to go with 1550 RPM on the top end. That’s a 14% increase in power, yet the drill drops 0.8 inches off the length down to 5.9 inches. It also has a slight weight reduction a comes in at 2.6 pounds with a 2.0Ah battery.

Shifting over to the Milwaukee 3453 impact driver, it’s a similar story. It picks up 15% more torque, jumping up to 1500 in-lbs. It also gains some speed and now has a max of 3600 RPM. Its size difference isn’t as dramatic, but it’s still compact at 5 inches long. There’s a slight drop in weight as well, sitting right at 2.0 pounds with a 2.0Ah battery.

Best Value Milwaukee Combo Kit

M18 7-Tool Set 2695-27S

Best Value Milwaukee Combo Kit

When it comes to value, we’re looking for the most bang for your buck. For Milwaukee, we turn to their brushed tools and trade-off some of the top-end performance to get a better price without sacrificing design quality.

The 7-tool kit is a great set for remodelers and home repair specialists. It includes the drill, impact, driver, and circular saw we like to see in a General Contractor’s Kit. The reciprocating saw is a one-hand M18 Hackzall rather than a full-size Sawzall. You also get an angle grinder, oscillating multi-tool, and LED light. Plus, this kit comes with two standard 3.0Ah batteries and two 3.0Ah High Output batteries. It’s also available with just the two standard batteries for $100 less.

Price: $599.00

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Electricians

M18 Knockout, Hammer Drill, and Step Bit Set

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Electricians

Milwaukee built a combo kit specifically with electricians and the electrical boxes they have to install in mind. It starts with the 2677 M18 Force Logic 6-Ton Knockout Tool and a punch/die set that covers 1/2-inch to 4-inch holes. Then it adds the Gen 3 M18 Fuel hammer drill (2804) and a 3-piece step bit set.

Here’s the thing: you can get the same knockout tool and die set for $1599.99. This combo adds the hammer and step bits for $50 less!

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Plumbers

M18 Fuel Hammer Drill, Impact Driver, and Super Hawg Set

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Plumbers

No one covers the needs of MEP (maintenance, electrical, and plumbing) like Milwaukee does and it shows in a combo kit specifically designed to help plumbers in the rough-in stage of construction.

The 4th generation M18 Fuel hammer drill and impact driver takes care of most of the drilling and driving. But when you need more torque and control for large hole saws, Milwaukee’s M18 Fuel Super Hawg takes center stage. A pair of 5.0Ah batteries keep the hammer drill and impact driver going while two 6.0Ah High Output batteries keep the Super Hawg running at its best.

Hey, if you want to tell your Sparky friends about this one, it’s helpful for their rough-ins as well.

Price: $999.00

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Automotive

M12 Fuel Impact Wrench and Ratchet Set

Milwaukee Automotive Set

We had a hard time deciding which Milwaukee combo kit would be our top pick for mechanics. It came 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 call, so get both if you can swing it.

The M12 Fuel set includes Milwaukee’s impressive 3/8-inch stubby impact wrench that boasts 250 ft-lbs of torque. Alongside it, you have two M12 Fuel 3/8 ratchets: a standard and an extended reach. Both reach 200 RPM and have 55 ft-lbs of torque, so you get the same performance characteristics as you switch between them.

Price: $699.00

Best Milwaukee Combo Kit for Lawn Care

M18 Fuel 5-Tool Lawn Care Set

Milwaukee Lawn Care Set

Milwaukee broke into lawn care years ago and the launch of the M18 Fuel self-propelled mower in 2022 gave them a complete setup. You can get your hands on everything you need to get started with battery powered lawn care with a 5-tool kit available at The Home Depot. It includes the mower, Quik-Lok string trimmer, hedge trimmer, blower, and chainsaw. This Milwaukee combo kit also includes an 8.0Ah High Output and a pair of 12.0Ah High Output batteries, plus a dual-port rapid charger and a single-port M18/M12 rapid charger.

Going with the Quik-Lok string trimmer rather than the standard model is a good call—you can easily add the edger, pole saw, brush, or other attachments as you see fit.

Price: $2059.00
