TOOL REVIEW - Milwaukee 18v Brushless Cordless Hammer-Drill & Impact Driver Combo Kit
/

I’ve been waiting for quite awhile to test out a new set of Milwaukee FUEL drills.  I was stoked to open this case up and let them rip!  So how did they do on the job?  Here we go…

Upon opening the package I was immediately impressed.  The kit comes with an 18v FUEL brushless hammer-drill, an 18v FUEL brushless impact driver (drill), an 18v charger, 2 Red-Lithium XC 5 amp-hour batteries, and a handle attachment for the hammer drill. (I never use these on any of my hammerdrills, but some people do so it’s nice that it’s included.

The Hammer Drill

The first thing I got to use on an actual job-site was the hammer drill.  I had to drive some concrete sleeve anchors into a brick wall so I could strap down my flexible conduit from an Air Conditioner to the nearby AC Disconnect.  The power behind this drill is amazing.  I was shocked at how insanely fast the motor spins, and how smoothly it detects variances in applied pressure to the trigger.  The drill has 2 speeds like most drills of it’s design.  It still has the drill, and screw features on it so it is not strictly a hammer drill.  It is a combination of all 3 drills – so you can use it to drill through masonry with the hammer feature, drill holes in studs with the drill feature, and drive screws with the screw gun setting.  It does all of these with extreme ease and impressive power.
