I already have a Fuel M18 impact/driver kit. I have the charger and batteries. I still have to purchase a decent drill. My Dewalt 9.6v is over 15 yrs old. I'd like the get just the M18 drill, but does it come with a case?

Is this "brushless" drill more durable and rugged than the model 2606 M18 brushed motor, or is it just more efficient?

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This drill will solve my headaches Today , I have a small project drill six holes which dosnt seem much but with my old model battery drill and only lasted seven minutes and it was at 7 rpms . I felt like why did I suffer so long. I know its not much of a review but its a rocket compared to my others .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will never buy another Milwaukee tool again General construction. I use to use exclusively Milwalkie, I even convinced my job site to switch from DeWalt because my Milwalke tools were awesome. It's been less than a year and 2 of the 4 drill chucks are already toasted. They won't release well and then will release the bit at random every 3 or four holes. The circular saw is a joke, underpowered and eats batteries like a hungry fat lady at McDonald's! The Jig Saw plate will un-snug its self in the middle of a cut and go from 90 degrees to whatever it chooses. I am thoroughly embarrassed that I convinced my boss to switch to your brand. Our DeWalt line is ancient and EVERY SINGLE ONE of those tools are old, beat up but STILL WORK! My older set of Milwalkie drills I personally own had no issues but the new ones are G A R B A G E! I will NEVER buy Milwalkie again. You can rest assured your recent quality shortcomings are not going unnoticed or untold. Going back to Dewalt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my 2 cents It was time to upgrade to a more professional tool. i have been using royobi for a while; back then it was all i could afford. i switched to millwake tools after using a few name brand drills. the platform has never changed. i was introcued to a red lithium drill which was very nice.more impact than royobi, dewalt,makita & bosch. i now currently own 3 drill 3 impacts m18 and in m12 three ratchets two impacts one hammer drill one regular drill. they seem to work good so far. had one issue and it was some one brewed a drill and damaged the battery. i only have one issue with the m18 drill i now own the third drill ( hammer drill) and cannot seem to find a handle for the drill. its clunky some times to balance the drill. also i can't seem to find extra belt clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long battery life I'm really impressed with the way the Milwaukee Red-Lithium batteries perform. They don't need to sit in the charger in between uses and have a very long run time. This drill/driver is very well built with an easy to use chuck that can accept 1/2" drill bits for large holes and has the torque to drill through hard, thick material yet is lightweight and compact. The ratcheting chuck makes it easy to get a good grip on bits, even round shank bits. Two speeds can be selected from a top switch for low and high with a maximum RPM of 1850 that's controlled with a smooth variable speed trigger. I normally don't use cordless drills for drilling pocket holes since the RPMs are usually too low but decided to try this Milwaukee M18 drill this. All the holes drilled out smooth and fast. After over 60 pocket holes I had only used up about 1/2 the battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Light Weight with Lots of Power Milwaukee has recently come out with a new line of compact 18 volt drills and impact driver with brushless motors. The compact drill/driver is Model 2701-20, and has 500 inch-lbs torque. It weighs only 2.8 lbs and has a width of 7.1 inches. This is a significant reduction in size and weight from the full size model, which is 4 lbs and 8.6 inches wide. After using the compact drill, I am very pleased with both its performance and ergonomics. The 2701-20 Compact Drill includes a brushless motor, which provides increased tool life an power. With a 2 amp-hour batter, it feels like 12 volt tool, but has the power of a full size drill. Of course it will accept the full range of Milwaukee lithium-ion batteries, from 1.5 through 5 amp-hour batteries. It’s ideal for use in tight spaces or where fatigue is an issue from repeated use. Highly recommended!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Drill This is a great drill, extremely well built, solid, a little more weight in the front end but for a good reason, metal gearbox and chuck, very strong. Excellent for hole saw, spade bits and small to larger drill bits in wood. Only negative I found was the motor got hot pretty quick. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a compact drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hurricane in a handbag! This is my do everything, go to battle drill. I use 4x4's as light posts, using this drill to Drill a hole 6'x 3/4"s diameter! I use it to install wires, blasting out 3\4" holes in plywood and 2x material with a spade bit, using long extensions for wire channels through walls. I have built a deck, walls, installed windows, hung drywall, security systems....everything! It is so light and solid and balanced! It is loud, it reminds me of a large 110 drill, which is part of the hurricane reference in my title. That is not a con for me. This is the best of all of Milwaukee's greatest drills, the best for my needs. If I needed industrial mega drilling I will get the big Fuel hammer drill, until then, this get it done in style. Get the belt clip. Under 4 lbs. With compact batt...500 lbs. Torque!!!! Freaky!
