Is this a regular drill? Is it different from an impact drill? Thanks!

Asked by: Stepho
Yes, it is a regular drill, not an impact drill.

what is the benefit of "brushless"? I am not a construction professional, just a DIYer.

Asked by: Izzy
It takes more energy to run a tool with brushes than one without. With a tool that plugs into an outlet that's no big deal, but when using a cordless tool the energy used to run the tool is greater so your battery doesn't last as long.

I really love a few important aspects of this drill, it is light and powerful, and the same goes for the batteries. Plus the adjustable torque settings and compact build really make this tool a joy to use. The only thing missing would be slot for holding a bit or bit holder, and for how much this boxed kit costs, the belt clip should be included. If you want that accessory you will need to order it or call Milwaukee to get it. I have used it since January 2017 but a few months is all I need to know that you can't go wrong with this brand. The light also helps when working in a dimly area. This really meets the needs of the verage home repair and DIY projects!

It felt just a little top heavy, but then I have arthritis in both thumbs so I am sensitive to this. I am a BIG Milwaukee tool fan, but Milwaukee Company really ticked me off on this one. My old Makita came with a belt clip that I have come to rely on. This $200.00 drill does not come with one and you must PAY an additional $5.00 for a $.75 part. It just really ticked me off, to a point where I called Milwaukee with NO satisfaction. How Cheap. I returned the tool and purchased a Makita again that came with an impact driver and for $25 less. Now the Makita is NOT brushless but the old one lasted for 7 years and still works great (the battery went out). This might be petty on my part, but I thought with upgrading to this one costing about $80 more I shouldn't have to buy an additional $.75 part for $5.00.

I have only had it for about a month and haven't used it too much but, so far I have no complaints. The chuck grips tight, the balance is perfect for me and the batteries charge very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for a lightweight drill OVERALL Very strong utility drill. Can really get into tight spaces. Drilled into stucco under the eaves of the house. Light and maneuverable with basic battery, which burns quick (good thing there are two.) SIZE: I was able to get the top of the drill closer to the top of the wall than any other drill, including my hole hawg. No issues holding the drill over my head and keeping it steady either. POWER :No issues punching through the thick (40's) stucco wall with a masonry bit either. Solid clutch delivered excellent power at lower speeds, high RPM at the other end of the spectrum as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong & Torquey! The Milwaukee 18V 1/2" Brushless Drill/Driver Kit is a great & powerful tool. It is well designed and fits well in the hand. The motor is powerful and very "torquey". It is suitable for the usual DIY projects and also for the more advanced and demanding applications that contractors have to deal with. The torque adjustment is a great feature and you can find the right setting for your application in the owner's manual. There is a selector switch for selecting the speed range (0-450 or 0-1800 RPM), and of course you can still control the speed through the trigger. Needless to mention that there is a switch to select the direction of rotation, with a center position that locks the trigger. It has a bright white LED light that goes ON when in use and switches OFF a few seconds later, which is very useful in tight spaces & dark locations. It comes with the two Compact batteries and battery life is good. There are larger M18 batteries available if needed but I prefer the two Compact batteries as that makes the tool lighter and you can always keep the spare battery charged & ready to go. The batteries come with an LED fuel gauge that shows how much charge is remaining when you press the small round button. A very useful feature. It comes with the bulky multi-voltage charger that has some great features and different indication lights for different conditions (charging, battery full, battery too hot, battery faulty etc). You will find this charger more useful when you have multiple Milwaukee M18 tools. The kit comes in the usual Milwaukee bright red heavy duty carry case that fits everything nicely. The case is also pad-lockable. I used this tool to effortlessly drive dozens of 4 inch screws in our floor joists to reduce squeaking. It is not the lightest tool though even with the compact battery so I'm not sure how long I can handle it for overhead applications! I posted some pics of the tool, the case, and also pics that show the dimensions and a comparison with my 3-year old 20V Black & Decker Matrix Drill/Driver kit. It may not be direct competition between the two but it helps you put things in perspective. The Milwaukee is stronger & "torquier" than my 20V B&D while being slightly smaller (although heavier). It also has some nice features such as the adjustable torque, speed selector, LED light, fuel gauge & carry case that are not available on my B&D. I also posted other pics of all package contents & case! Recommended!
