Summary: I don't have a bad thing to say about this Milwaukee hammer drill driver, Model 2611-24. I use it every day on the jobsite and it performes like it has a cord. It got lots of power and long runtime on a single charge. it'a good solid performer. Nothing but HEAVY DUTY...
Milwaukee Hammer Drill is an excellent project tool
22 June 2012
Summary: Item was as described. Drill was comparable in cost. The kit is well thought out for its use. Durable and battery is long lasting. The kit has an extra battery with the charger included. This helps for long projects. One battery charges while the other is in use. This is an excellent value..
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. A few months ago, one battery wouldn't hold a proper charge and after sending it to a Milwaukee repair center I received a new one within a week.
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. I have convinced several other users of "other" brands to switch to this one just by lending them my drill for a job.
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". But the price was virtually the same as the on-line price so essentially they were asking me to throw the drill away - a five year old drill that I used about 30 times for household projects.
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. I drove an 8" x 1/2" lag straight into a 6x6 PT post without pre-drilling with a nearly dead battery. Incredible torque, very responsive trigger, not an over-sized body and it has very simple clutch and drill controls. Perfect.
Summary: First, I'll state that the drill itself, along with the M18 batteries, are great. If it wasn't for Milwaukee's poor service, this would be a 5 star rating. I am a partner in a small home building company. We had previously purchased the compact M18 drill/driver (2601-22) and liked it, so decided to invest in their more powerful "flagship" hammer drill/driver as well.
