    I think Home Depot is the best place for anything Milwaukee. Most likely they wont have these in the store so you would have to order online. You can have them shipped to the nearest store.

    If you already have the battery and charger then just buy the tool. Otherwise it's a better deal to get the whole kit. It's always good to have extra batteries.

    Milwaukee has their representative working at the Home Depot tool corral 7-4 M-F. This is at my local Home Depot, not sure if they have that at other locations. The guy is there to help with finding tools and answering questions. Unfortunate they drive a red Milwaukee F150. :)

    I hope you are happy.... I just ordered the Milwaukee M18 kit (impact, two batteries, charger, and carrying case). All the reviews call it "a beast" with 1000 ft lbs. of tightening torque and 1400 of unfastening torque. I have a John Deere lawn tractor that the service technician put the blades on so tight that my air compressor/gun wouldn't budge them. I am betting this bad boy will get the job done.

    Regular sockets would be fine. They dont pack a lot of torque.

    Home Depot usually have a big sale on tools during Christmas time so if anything you dont need right now just wait a few months. You'll save a lot of money.
