Summary: I don't use the drill much but second gear went out. When I tried to get it fixed Milwaukee said they don't have parts for it. Asked me to purchase a new drill under a "turn in your old drill program".
Summary: I've been using cordless drills professionally for over ten years. This is the first time I opted for a Milwaukee. I've used pretty much every other brand on a job site at one point, but this thing blows them all away.
Summary: I bought this drill from Amazon in Nov. of 2008. It's been very good to me and has accomplished everything that I threw its way. I'm talking about concrete and metal work. Only for the most heavy duty jobs did I break out the corded Hilti.
Summary: I have a wood working operation. We use the 3 18 volt 2611's every day, all day. They are very powerful and can run a 1 3/4 forstner bit deep into multi layer birch plywood. BUT, here is the first of two serious problems. 1. The drills fall out of the chuck all the time.
Summary: This is, by far, the best drill that I have worked with. I am a contracted handy man and I have used this drill for numerous jobs. The power is unmatched by any drill I have seen or heard of and the versatility and weight is absolutely top-notch.
