Questions & Answers

Did the M18 drill come with a case

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?

How does this differ from the Fuel brushless motors?

I have some Fuel, but these are less expensive
Asked by: SG
Our FUEL models feature a POWERSTATE brushless motor which is going to operate at a higher efficiency than the brushless motor in our non-FUEL units. Also, FUEL units have REDLINK PLUS technology allowing the tool and the battery to communicate with one another. This allows the tool to optimize itself when put in strenuous tasks to both protect the tools and optimize its performance and efficiency.

M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from LED light fails after a short time and will not turn off automatically. The only way to turn LED... LED light fails after a short time and will not turn off automatically. The only way to turn LED off to keep from draining battery is to unhook battery. No clip on drill to hold basic screw driver that comes with drill. Expensive drill to drain battery due to a bad LED light! This appears to be a common problem with this drill.

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 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.
