Lightweight drill / driver does what it is supposed to do.
11 August 2014
Summary: This is a good quality drill/driver and will drive a lot of screws installing metal roofing before needing a recharge. If you need to drill large or long holes in wood the battery won't hold up long before needing a recharge, get the next size up.
Summary: I got this because it was time in my life for a real power drill. I use it all the time and have never had a problem with it. I'd give it 5 stars, but it doesn't come with any bits. My first project was some bunny cages for my girlfriend and the only thing that let me down was my engineering skills.
Summary: I have owned this drill for about two years. It fastened over 5000 screws into an azek roof deck with zero hesitancy. That's 4500+ 3" 'fastenmaster' deck screws with no pre-drilling, along with severall hundred RSS structural screws and lots of other miscellaneous odds and ends.
Summary: Initially I liked the drill, and for the most part it did what it needed to do.(at least for first 2 years) I'm a homeowner, so its not like I'm putting this under a lot of stress each time, or using it a lot, but I have to say it just doesn't hold up with battery charges like my 12 volt Makita has.
Summary: The Milwaukee model 2601-22 Cordless 1/2" Compact Drill Driver Kit was designed for professionals. It's weight and balance is a nice design to help in minimizing fatique. I also like the Battery Fuel Gauge that comes with the Compact Red Lithium Battery Packs and the quick 30-Minute Charger.
Summary: I own and use several compact drills. However, this Milwaukee 2601-22 18-volt is my game changer. The machine is relatively small but when you feel it, it makes you say, "This guy means business.
Summary: I was always a die hard Milwaukee fan and when I saw this drill at the local tool store, I just had to buy it. I have been using this drill for abut 2 years now and wish I would have done more research before purchasing.
