Do you have lighter weight tools for women? Say to work on furniture refinishing, reinforcem of ...

Asked by Lynn January 23, 2021

Lynn, That's a great question you've asked. Milwaukee is really diverse when it comes to their lineup of tools. There are 3 lines of tools meant for different purposes. The M12 line is as lightweight as you'll find anywhere and really quite small considering the amount of power you get with such a lightweight device. These tools are meant for lighter work and the ability to fit into tight spaces due to their size. They are affordable and a go to brand for furniture making, cabinets etc. They are still quite powerful even though they're small so be mindful of that. The M12 line can be used by do it yourselfers or professionals looking for tools that are a bit smaller than usual. The M18 line is a professional grade line. These tools while slightly smaller than other professional grade brands pack more power than competitor brands built for the same purpose. These tools are so powerful even professionals have to get used to not overdoing it. The MXFuel lineup is strictly professional industrial use and are quite large as to be expected. These are tools you might use for big jobs such as concrete work etc. Based on your comments I'd recommend you take a look at the Milwaukee M12 tools and think you'll be quite pleased.

it says get a free tool...is it tool only and also can we choose any fuel tool?

Asked by Vlad January 14, 2021

The best drill and driver i habe ever used
These are without a doubt, hands down, the best drill and drover I have ever used. I see in some reviews some folks got some faulty drills. Not the case for me. Ive had mine a couple of years and use them daily in a professional setting. The torque on the driver is unparalled. In some instances I even use it with a good bit to drill through stainless steel. And the hammer drill, an absolute monster, I drill into concrete and brick constantly and with ease. The 5 amp batteries provide plenty of life, I can get through a full work day, sometimes two on one charge.

Milwaukee didn't want me to post this review
I read the reviews before purchasing, just like you are right now. I weighed the pros and cons of various brands, just like you. Listen to this review. It holds weight. I had this review on Milwaukee's website and they contacted me to tell me they wanted to get me in touch with their product manager for drills/drivers. They then took my review down (after roughly 2 days) and I never heard from them again. I then tried to repost the SAME review and the moderators took it down before it could be posted for "not following their review guidelines." For that, I'm taking my review from 2 stars down to 1. Pathetic. My original review: I originally got this combo (M18 Fuel Drill/driver and impact combo with (2) 5 Ah batteries) to replace the Makita XPH07 drill driver that had previously given me trouble with its rear bearing/motor assembly). This was around Black Friday of 2019, so Milwaukee was running their special of giving you 2 free items when you bought this kit. I chose their job site radio (I love the radio so much) and another 5 AH battery. For the price, it seemed like a killer deal. When I initially used the impact, I was stoked. It had lots of torque and was a tool I had never used. I immediately knew I would never go without an impact driver again. Admittedly, I put it though some fairly heavy usage, but Milwaukee’s motto is “Nothing but heavy duty,” right? Fast forward to a couple months and I started having problems with both the drill and the impact. The drill’s chuck would ratchet down to hold a bit and then release the bit at the worst times possible, even when I would fully tighten it. Please note: this seems to be a fairly common problem with the Fuel drill. I then sent it to get repaired. After 2 weeks, I finally got it back. At roughly the same time, the impact started to act up. The bit holder/collet would occasionally drop the bit it was holding or simply would not lock a new bit into place unless I racked the collet a couple times. While this was annoying, the main problem was the light hammering noise that would occur when the impact was held upside down. I got this fixed under warranty...after 2 more weeks. Turns out it was the motor, which is ridiculous considering it only had a couple months of use. The bit holding problem was not addressed because the repair man could not replicate the problem. Fast forward to today. The impact has started to make the same sound, but only just starting to (intermittent) and it will not accept/hold a new bit almost every time I go to swap out to a new bit and sometimes it will just outright drop the bit while I’m using it. The drill is starting to have the SAME problem with the chuck, even though it only has a handful of hours on it. PLEASE NOTE: after research, I found the chuck is a common problem with the driver. Ditto with the collet ring on the impact. Come on. Why can’t ANYONE make a drill that lasts more than a few months? I’m NOT putting it to very hard use. I mainly drill 1/8”-1/2” holes and drive 1 1/2”-3” screws with it. Ditto with the impact, except instead of drilling holes, it will rarely drive a lag screw instead. I bought Milwaukee’s top-of-the-line set for LONGEVITY and also for the warranty, assuming a 5 year warranty meant Milwaukee had confidence enough in their product to risk putting 2 extra years on the warranty compared to most others. Sure, the 1200/2000 inch pounds of torque for the drill and impact respectively are impressive, but I could care less if I have to run to the repair man every couple months and wait 2 weeks for it to be fixed. I dread the day when the warranty finely expires and I have 2 pieces of plastic with some motors inside. I expected to be able to have these tools for 10+ years...now I doubt I’ll have them for another year. Might just have to cut my losses and sell them to someone for cheap and get a different brand. What brand? I have no fracking clue. I will say this: before I got the Makita (which was before this Milwaukee set), I had a Black and Decker NiCd battery drill that, although slow, has never failed me (expect for the low battery life and torque, lol). We’ve had that drill for 10 years and has been used fairly heavily and it is still running fine. It was a cheap drill and has had less problems over the course of 10 years than my Milwaukee set has over the past few months. Update: The drill's chuck is terrible. It is now wobbling fairly poorly and has made driving screws significantly more difficult. The impact has a similar problem and its collet moves at completely ridiculous amounts. Perhaps up to a 1/16th of an inch (and it's only about 3/4" wide). For their top-of-the-line drill/impact, they are atrocious.

This is good but far from perfect
Works great and comes in the nice storage case. I got this set a few months ago so I’ve had a while to use it and determine a fair evaluation. I don’t usually write reviews but many people act this set is the end all best perfect tool out there. I am a pro carpenter and use this set every day of my life. So here’s the scoop. Good- Excellent power when you pick it up and have it on the right setting. Switching over from Bosch, this driver can sink 3 » screws all day on the 3 setting which is nice. Downsides- speed setting randomly gets bumped so I pick it up and it’s on 1 slow speed so I have to mess with it. Another down is the but holder doesn’t always grip your bit first try so you have to make sure it’s held. It will fall out on you if you’re up on a ladder then you climb all the way down to look on the ground for your bit, so that leaves a lot to be desired in terms of a reliable set up. The last bad is I’ve had the drill hesitate on me, I pull the trigger and nothing happens... release the trigger then pull it again and it’s fine. Wierd. These bad things I mention never happened on my Bosch sets, but the power and warranty of the Milwaukee still make me recommend it. So there you go, it’s good but don’t expect it to be perfect. Also the case should totally have room for a Milwaukee bit case. I had to build my own from poplar it fits in the charger location.

Yes I have to afree with Bob
Yes I have to agree with Bob I have the same problem with my drill cutting out then I have to take the he battery out slide it back in then seems to go for a little bit. Also the chuck I find to be garbage to a guy who's hands seem to need a drill when working in different inviroments and one of the chuck jaws always seems to want to hang up inside the chuck and you have to fight with it in order to get a bit in without it being out of center

Milwaukee Used to Be Good
These drills are not good. I owned the previous version of Milwaukee drills for ten years. GREAT TOOLS. Finally traded them in when the batteries wore out. These new ones scuck in comparison. 1. The collar which allows you to switch between drill and hammer-drill is clunky, and difficult to turn. Today, mine jammed and stuck in place, and I can't move it with a pair of channel lock pliers. Only used a few days. 1b. Clutch doesn't seem to work. On the lowest setting, the drill will drive a screw well into softwood without slowing. 2. The old drill had a built in clip that would hold two bit drivers while you used a drill or whatever. They deleted this feature. And there's no option to add one. Idiocy. Why? 3. The drill's built-in light is located above the trigger, where naturally, the shank of the drill creates a shadow which obscures the point of the bit. Which is what you're actually trying to see. This is bad design. The light should be located at the base of the handle where it would be aimed up at the bit area. Idiotic. 4. Milwaukee used to be made here. Now made in SE Asia with the rest. Quality sucks. 5. I'll be buying Makita now. BYE MILWAUKEE.

I have delayed a bit on writing this review of the Milwaukee 2997-22 Combo set in order to have sufficient hands-on experience with the tools to offer information that is more than just a first impression of a new tool. I have owned and used many cordless and corded drills throughout the years, and I must say that this 2804 hammer drill is at least as powerful and fast as any corded drill and better than other cordless drills that I have used. The drill has absolutely enormous torque, that will “rip your arm off” if you let it. Drilling and hammer drilling are super-fast, even through dense and hard materials. Hammer drilling into poured concrete using large 3/8” and 1/2” by 12” masonry bits is like a hot knife through butter. With a masonry duplex bit for setting caulk-in anchors in concrete it is shockingly fast and easy. Using the drill as a driver is also very fast, and the clutch settings for the chuck are very easy to set accurately based on the fastener, material and desired torque on the set fastener. Much of this excellent drilling and driving is undoubtedly attributable to the extremely powerful, brushless motor. It is absolutely incredible, and almost shocking to have such a powerful and versatile drill in such a small form factor. This drill is definitely compact, which is a tremendous benefit when working in tight spaces. That this very compact drill delivers so much power is really remarkable. The high-speed gear range is very fast, and the low-speed gear range is really best for drilling through hard metals and for better speed control for some fastener driving operations (such as long lag screws into dense wood). Again, I find it incredible that such a compact and light drill is as powerful as this! The battery capacity is good, but it would probably be more convenient if the included battery charger could charge two batteries simultaneously. I really appreciate the battery test button with 4 LED bars on each of these lithium-ion batteries to show the remaining charge on the battery. I have read some critical reviews of this drill on Milwaukee’s own website, and I want to address them and offer my opinions regarding the criticisms written there. There are complaints that this drill runs hot, and that is true. When the drill is used heavily and/or for long periods the drill builds up heat. I have not experienced this with other cordless drills, but none of them were as small or as powerful as this drill, and I suspect that the heat is a product of such a powerful motor being constrained to such a small size. I have not found the heat to be a problem in using the drill; it does not slow down or lose power or stop running. I hope that running hot at times will not reduce the lifespan or reliability of the tool, long-term. It is far too soon to know. Others complained that the trigger sometimes sticks / hangs. I have also experienced this intermittently, where the trigger seems to be stuck when pressed, requiring jiggling of the trigger to free it up. I find this to be a very minor issue, albeit unexpected for a professional quality power tool. I also found (as did at least one other owner who posted) that the speed range selector slide switch on top of the drill housing is sometimes difficult to move (binding) between the two positions. I don’t know if this occasional annoyance is due to a poor design of the internal gear change lever which connects the plastic switch to the gearbox, or if it is due to the design of the plastic slide switch itself. Besides the complaint about the drill getting hot, the other apparently most common complaint is about the chuck wobbling. This too is a valid complaint. As I previously stated, I have owned and used many drills, and I have indeed experienced other drills with chucks that wobble. I have to assume that the chuck wobble on this model drill is resultant from a quality control shortcoming in the assembly process. The tolerances for chuck wobble appears to vary, but if it is too bad the results are oversized holes and great difficulty in driving fasteners (especially longer ones). As other users will also attest, the foregoing issues appear to be very common with this model drill. I checked both another new unit in the store, as well as the unit on display in the tool aisle, and both of them had the identical issues, as well. But for the foregoing, common issues, this drill is really a champ! The speed and torque ratings claimed by Milwaukee for this tool are about the best you will find, and based on my hands-on experience with this drill, I don’t doubt that they are true. This drill is all about p-o-w-e-r. The 2853 impact tool in this combo kit is also a champ and a powerhouse. This impact tool has four power/speed settings (electronically switched), which really accommodates every impact driving use ranging from driving small fasteners into sheet (gauge) metal, to driving large lag screws into very dense wood beams and columns. You can run it very slow, or very fast, as needed. It too is a remarkably powerful tool in a very small and light package. This tool is so compact, with such a short length, that it will work easily in very confined spaces. For both tools, most of the weight is in the batteries (IMHO); even so the tools are really very pleasant to handle and use for lengthy periods of time without complaint. They both have a rubber covering on the handles that provide for a very good grip and comfortable use. Both tools also have a bright LED light to illuminate your work, which is also great. In summary, both of these tools are very compact and lightweight, but are more powerful than any cordless tool that I have used. It is incredible that so much power is packed into such small tools!
