          Great drill!
          What a great drill. This thing is a workhorse and has double the battery life from the kit giving two batteries and a charger. The carrying bag is super convenient for grabbing a few things and heading to my next project. The drill works like an industrial drill and never quits. I love how smooth it feels and how strong it is. My husband could barely turn a screw with his Phillips head, but not he just presses a button!

          Very Compact Drill and Great for Tight Spaces
          Milwaukee has come out with a new line of compact 18 volt drills with brushless motors. The compact drill/driver comes with the drill, two 2 Ah Batteries, Charger and Contractor Bag. It has 550 inch-lbs torque and weighs only 2.3 lbs, with length of 5.7 inches. This is a significant reduction in size and weight from a full size drill. After using the compact drill, I am very pleased with its performance and ergonomics. The 18 Volt Compact Drill feels like a 12 volt tool, but has the power of a full size drill. Of course it accepts the full range of Milwaukee 18 volt lithium-ion batteries. It’s ideal for use in tight spaces or where fatigue is an issue from repeated use. Highly recommended!!

          Powerful Tool, Small Package
          I love this drill! I have several Milwaukee products, including one of their full size drills, and this is definitely my new favorite. Its size and balance makes it easy to handle and maneuver. It’s also ideal for getting in tight places like between joists. It has great power -zero complaints about its functionality. The only extremely minor negative that I’ll point out is that due to its compact size, it slides out of my drill/driver holders on my peg board really easily so I have to store it elsewhere. Again, super minor, just figured I’d mention it. Great product!

          Great impact driver
          This is a great little 18 V brushless cordless impact driver. Fits perfect in my hand and my toolbox runs on the M 1818 V battery and it’s really nice to have around. It fits all the tools in my nut driver assembly package, including the drillbits, the different type of screwdriver heads, the whole saw everything that I would need to take on the job with me just a cool little thing to have in the bag

          I love Milwaukee Tools
          The M18 18V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2" Compact Drill/Driver with Two 2.0 Ah Batteries, Charger, and Tool Bag is a great add-on tool set, or even a beginner set. Milwaukee tools are my favorite and this drill doesn't disappoint. The operation is smooth and much more quiet than some other drills I own. The torque settings and chuck operation are seamless and smooth. The batteries are compact but powerful and I have yet to run a battery dead before I'm done using it. There's a button on the front of the batteries that you can push to see how much juice is left in them which is super helpful. The bag is the right size to fit the drill, batteries, and charger. The charger is great because it charges the batteries quickly and it has a port on the back of the charging meter to charge your M12 batteries if you have them. I happen to have both so if I'm doing work away from home I can get away with one charger for both systems. I love this kit and I plan to continue purchasing Milwaukee Tools.

            Nice compact size with plenty of power. But chuck is just so-so
            I own several Milwaukee cordless tools, including an older drill/driver. It was nice to see that they added this new compact design to their lineup. It is quite a bit shorter and lighter than their older drills but still has great power. I tested it side by side with a 18v Makita as well as the 12v DeWalt. This new compact Milwaukee drill fits in between both those drills quite nicely. Much lighter than the Makita and more power than the 12v DeWalt. Sort of the goldilocks of the 3. As nice handling this compact drill is, I did not like the chuck they chose to use. It has a hard time locking down on smaller drill bits (see photos) and occasionally spins when drilling hardwood. I also didn’t like the LED. I’ve become so dependent on the LED to light up the work. I found the Milwaukee LED just didn’t work as well as the competition. Overall, I would give this Milwaukee compact drill a “B-” grade.

            Milwaukee 1/2" Drive / Driver with Battery and Charger
            Milwaukee 1/2 drive drill / driver M18 ( 18 volts ) comes with 2.0 Ah battery, charger and a tool bag to store this in or carry onto the job. This charger takes 2 types of batteries you can charge M12 volt and an M18 volt ( multi-voltage charger ) This drill is variable speed from 0- 1700 RPM's., brushless and more torque than the drills that have brushes. Delivers over 550 pounds of torque , the internal parts are all metal and has a metal chuck with adjustable torque settings and the compact size ( 5.7 inches in length ) gets into tighter and smaller places to use. With heavy duty charger which charges batteries up faster . Has a LED light in the base of the drill to get into dark places to see what you're doing. Get more power and run time with the REDLINK battery , also come with a hook type attachment on it to clip on your belt to have your hands free , this clip is removable if don't care for it. This drill weighs only 3.2 pounds with battery attached. Very nice feel on rubber handle and is quite comfortable. Excellent drill / driver and well built. Comes with a 5 year warrant on the tool and 2 year on the battery. Another great product by Milwaukee.
