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: 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: This Drill now comes with a all metal chuck. I tried 2 Ridgid drills and 2 Bosch drills , returning them all.The ONLY reason I returned them, Their plastic chucks were not true and even wobbly.This drill has a great chuck. It also matches the Bosch in smooth power switch for the variable speed.
Summary: Did much research before purchase. This unit fit may needs. Excellent value for a top quality product. Compact, well balenced and durable. With this type of battery you must keep an eye on the battery level. It doesn't slow down it stops.
nice size and power, BATTERIES NOT COMPATIBLE AND SHORT WARRANTY

Summary: Milwaukee is a great company. Or maybe WAS a great company. I love this tool, but wish I could return it. It's not defective, but Milwaukee definitely misleads you about warranty and compatibility. The tool carries a 5 year warranty, and they have 5 year warranties on their 18V LI batteries...
Summary: I like how light weight it is and I like the light. I have not used it very much yet and it may be that I am just not used to it. But to me it seems like the driver part is too fast. My older Ryobi unit seemed to be slower, but it stayed in the heads of screws better.
Summary: I'm not a pro, but a total tool nut. I've owned a bunch of drills - from DeWALT (DC720, DC925, DC927), Makita (BHP452HW, BHP451), and Milwaukee (0612, 0824) - and now this. Each brand has their strengths and weaknesses. I like the 3 speeds on some of the DeWALTs and the Makita BHP451.
