Milwaukee M18 Kit Fuel Super Hawg With Quick-Lok 2711

There’s the Hawg, then there’s the Milwaukee Super Hawg.  You want power and performance, the Super Hawg is your tool.  Ask anyone what right angle drill they use for driving, cutting and dicing up wood and they will tell you the Milwaukee Hole Hawg.  That’s because it’s been around forever, it performs, it’s strong, it delivers results and let’s face it, it just jams through anything.  Year after year we hear companies tell us how they want to cut the cord and let battery technology take over.  Let me tell you that this new Super Hawg has accomplished that goal....

Milwaukee M18 Gen 2 FUEL Hammer Drill 2704

Another new tool from Milwaukee, say it can’t be.  Every time I turn around, they have something new out.  This time it’s a new drill.  Not just any drill, but a beast of a hammer drill in a small size.  This is a huge leap forward for a number of reasons.  The drill is one of the most widely used tools.  In the past you really had to pick from power and size.  If you wanted a lot of power, you had to expect your drill to be bigger and heavier.  If you wanted a lighter drill, you could...

Milwaukee 1/2″ Brushless 18V Compact Hammer Drill/Driver – 2702-22

Well it’s finally here, the Milwaukee compact drill.  I have to say I have been waiting for this for a long time.  The first thing I can say is that Milwaukee didn’t disappoint.  Even their compact impact is a great tool with a great design.  As you know I moved from Milwaukee to Dewalt for this very reason, because of compact.  While Milwaukee always made a great drill, it was sometimes over kill for certain applications.  Yes they do have a great 12V drill available, but then again, your investing in a different battery platform.  (Yes, i know I...

Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion Starter Drill Kit – P1810

Ryobi has launched a bunch of new power tools which we will be showing off in the near future.  For today, we are showing off the Ryobi P1810 starter drill.  For $60 you get the drill, a charger and a Lithium battery.  A pretty good deal for someone wanting to get started with a power tool drill.  Personally, I think this is a great drill for the homeowner who has a need for a drill, but isn’t going to use it every weekend.  Why spend a $100 on a drill that will sit on the shelf for most of...

Bosch introduced a new compact drill to the market.  You get the drill, 2 slim pack batteries and a charger, all for under a $100.  I think it’s pretty wild to see a quality drill for under a $100.  If your looking to for a compact drill with a nice balance and great feel, that won’t break the bank, take a look at the video below. Compact drills are great.  There are plenty of times you don’t need the extra power, so why have all the weight.  All I can say is I’am excited to see Bosch come out with...

Bosch HDH181X Hammer Drill and Drill Driver

Yes you are reading the correct title and yes we have done this drill/driver and hammer drill before.  So why are we doing it again?  Well we wanted to talk about a couple of the cool features these two tools have to offer.  Before I go into that, I have to admit I have been using the previous models for a long time and love them.  To me they are the workhorse of the drills.  I have beat them, left them outside in the rain and snow, dropped them and they just keep on working.  If you are familiar...

Black and Decker AutoSense – The Perfect Home Owner Drill

I know one of our contributors wrote this tool up a while back.   I liked it so much I wanted to write about it also.  When I first saw the AutoSense I thought it was a gimmick.  When I first used it, I was like WOW.  This is a really nice tool.  It has a has a powerful 20V max battery.  This drill rivals some Pro drill/drivers with its ergonomic grip that felt perfect in my hands.  20V power will feel like a formula one car to most home owners.  The tool weighs 3.7 lbs. The Auto Sense is just...

Bosch 12V Drill-Driver Review PS32-02

Milwaukee isn’t the only one who can come out with a jamming 12V.  If you like the feel and style of the Milwaukee, you will be sure to love the feel and balance of this Bosch.  Lightweight, powerful and two speeds.  The drill has an LED on the side and an adjustable clutch.  The biggest plus to this tool is the feel and weight.  I love how my hand wraps around the grip and how it feels in my hand. Power and run time is about what you would expect from a 12V.  One thing that would be nice...
