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 2706 – One Key Hammer Drill

We recently released our overview the new Milwaukee 2705, the new Milwaukee One-Key drill.  While we didn’t cover much of the drill itself, we did talk about the One-Key and how you can customize your tool.  Well with this new release of the Milwaukee 2706 Hammer Drill, we are going to cover the One-Key, but some different information.  If you are here to find more out about the drill, take a look at the article on the Milwaukee 2704 as it covers just the drill.  Both the new One-Key drills (2705 & 2706) are pretty much the same as...

Milwaukee 2705 – One Key Drill

As you know Milwaukee tool has come out with a new technology called One-Key.  The new Milwaukee 2705 is one of the first of many releases of the One-Key.  They do have a couple other tools out such as the hammer drill, impact driver, impact wrench and the Force Logic, but we will be covering those in different articles.  Since this is our first look at the One-Key solution, we are going to talk more about this new feature than the drill.  If you are interested in the drill, you can take a look at our review of the...

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...

DeWALT 20V vs Milwaukee 18V – Friday Night Tool Fight

Chevy vs Ford, Lowes vs Home Depot and Boeing vs Airbus are all good examples of rivals.  Well we took two of the biggest tool brand rivals and put their latest 20V and 18V drills to the test.  Don’t be fooled by the 20V MAX you don’t get an extra 2 volts, the M18 is also a 20V MAX.  Basically fully charged under a no load condition both batteries have 20V.  DeWALT decided to market it as a 20V which other manufacturers are also doing now.  We used Milwaukee’s “Drill Killer” 1″ auger bit, which earned  this name after...

Milwaukee M12 Fuel 1/2″ Hammer Drill/Driver Review 2404-22

I love trying and testing new tools, who doesn’t?  We get to check out all the lastest and greatest tools that come to the market.  The only thing I don’t like about this gig is trying to explain tools to people.  For one, I am a bad writer.  The biggest thing I hate is trying to explain the balance, power and feedback of a tool.  How do you really explain that in words.  Well here we go again with the Milwaukee M12 Fuel Hammer Drill.  We did a review of the M12 brush (2411) version a while back and when...

Milwaukee M12 Fuel 1/4″ Hex Screwdriver Kit Review – Model 2402-22

Are you an electrician, cabinet installer or another contractor who fastens a lot of screws, but hates the weight of the 18V tools?  If so this redesign of the M12 screwdriver is right up your alley.  This screwdriver is part of the new Milwaukee line of tools called Fuel.  The Fuel utilizes a brushless motor which offers more power and better overall efficiency.  As with the M12 Fuel Impact Driver and M12 Fuel Impact Wrench, the Screwdriver is a whole new redesign from the ground up. One thing I have to say about the Milwaukee M12 Fuel line is...

DEWALT DCD985 vs Milwaukee M18 2604 – Cant we all just get along!

A few months back Milwaukee Tool started comparing 18V FUEL drills to the Makita 2nd generation brushless 18v Drill.  Milwaukee pretty much smoked the Makita!  So now that Milwaukee is gloating as the king of the hill, DeWALT  has to come along and rain on the parade.  DeWALT has released some durability videos comparing the two. I am a huge DeWALT fan and think the DCD985 is the best drill on the market and it is not even brushless,  however I have to leave that at the door on this one and let my editorial instinct take over.  To be fair...
