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.
Summary: I purchased the Milwaukee 2601-22 Cordless drill for my son, who recently bought his first house. At first I wanted to get him a DeWalt because I thought that was a reliable name but after reading many bad reviews online recently I decided to try the Milwaukee. How disappointing.
Summary: Like many on here I have bought many great Mil tools in the past and figured this drill would be the same. I was sadly mistaken. After one charge to both batteries they stopped charging. So I sent them in to Milwaukee. I received two new batteries which would not hold a charge at all.
Buy something with more power, this thing is overpriced junk!

Summary: I cannot believe this drill... I have had it for 1 day... batteries fully charged, I added a room to my house and this thing wont even drill through a stud with a 3/4 inch bit. I figured ok, battery wasnt fully charged, put it back on the charger, cranked the torque on the drill all the way up, and...
Summary: The gears are cheap plastic and it sheared all the teeth off the first time I used it. They need to step down the motor power or use metal gears. The gears WILL wear out on this drill if you use it regularly much more quickly than a drill with metal gears.
Summary: Milwaukee used to be a tool company that us contractors could rely on but now its just for home owners. I'm a contractor and I will no longer buy this brand. This tool is way under powered and the batteries don't fully charge any more. I have owned it for a year and I'm replacing it with Makita.

Summary: I have been an electrician for over 20 years, and have seen and used alot of cordless drills in this time. I have either owned them or my employees have owned them (Dewalt, Milwaukee, Makita, Hitachi, PC, Panasonic, Bosch). With that being said Milwaukee has been the best brand for me thus far.
Summary: I bought this tool on the strength of the Milwaukee name and I think it will be my last Milwaukee tool. Bad side -- I bought this drill to rebuild my deck and the tool barely made it thru the project. I found it terribly underpowered and it drained batteries at an astounding pace.
Summary: After owning this drill for just over two years, both batteries are bad and I have downgraded this to a one star. This drill saw very little use so I am very disappointed. Replacement batteries are 80 bucks each so I don't think I'll be replacing them.
