How does this tool differ from the Hammer Drill/Driver, same price?

Asked by jgt714 September 7, 2018

Trying to compare 2504-20 to 2404-20. I see the spec comparison, but I'm wondering about how their uses may differ. One is called a hammer drill, the other a hammer drill/driver.

Customer review from logo
I'm an industrial maintenance technician and carry this drill all the time I like this drill because it is small enough to carry in my tool bag, yet powerful enough for drilling out broken bolts or mounting some conduit on block. Very versatile and m12 so I can share battery with my die grinder and stubby impact as well.

Happy Mothers Day Indeed!
Customer review from logo
This was my gift for mother's Day! I was so excited when I opened the package and found that it was a not only a drill but a Milwaukee hammer drill!!! I am not a professional but we are remodeling our home either to sell or to increase the property value. I have been doing all the work myself and have become quite good at it. This product has made it so much easier. and the hammer drill part I mean to be able to screw into concrete without killing myself is quite a feat thank you family for giving me the best gift ever. Looking forward to my next power tool to add to my ToolBox the M18 Sawzall! Oh and the product runs great, lightweight and 2 battery packs!

I have been a Milwaukee fan ever since I purchased the Fastback Compact Flip Utility Knife last month. The next day after my 17 year old cordless drill decided to quit, I went to the Home Depot to pickup this tool, but they didn't have it in stock, so I was sent to another store. I also purchased the Milwaukee 20 pc Titanium Drill Bit Set to complete this setup. This new model, the "2500 series" is really nice. It's so small, compact and powerful, it just blows my old (deceased) drill out of the park! The included batteries charge so fast, I simply couldn't believe it. The small battery charged in 30 minutes. The large battery charged in 45 minutes. This cordless masterpiece has a built in flashlight and battery charge indicator for convenience. I just love how the flashlight helps me line-up my drill so perfectly to help reduce surrounding shadows. It really makes a difference! The power of this little drill is faster and more powerful than my older (larger size) drill it replaced. I am now officially a Milwaukee Tools fan! I will definitely be on the lookout for more Milwaukee tools at the Home Depot. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some shopping to do. Recommended: Yes
