Top of the line in power
This hammer drill is hands down the best in it's class and the power is unreal plus I couldn't believe the long run time when I was framing a add on to a house. I will not talk about the other drills out there that let me down like the dewalt and ridgid but I can honestly say ridgid is right behind Milwaukee but just not there. So keep up the great work and don't let the yellow catch up or the blue if you know what I mean.

It's good, so far
Been using it a week. So far, it's good. It does not feel lighter than previous generations or competing brands. The chuck will loosen if you are drilling and drop the bit out if you point the drill down. Every drill does this, I just wish they would have fixed this. The charger charges both 18 and 12 volt on the same device, but only one at a time. I use both heavily at work and the one charger isn't going to cut it. On the plus side, it has a ton of go and will push you off a ladder if you aren't careful. Feels balanced very well and seems durable. I like it a lot and it does it's job, it isn't soooo much better though. If you need a good drill and have the money, go for it

It is fantastic, the only two things I wish it had was room in the hard case for an organizer, and the battery would go forward or backwards like my V28 to get extra depth when drilling 2+ inch holes through front plates but I guess that is what their extensions are for.

Great, but look closely!
Love the Hammerdrill. Has great power and run time! I don't feel any weight difference from my 2602 Hammerdrill, but definately feel more power and runtime.

The only gripe I really have is that the chuck is not the same as pictured in the majority of advertisement, as a matter of fact, it's not even the same as the one pictured on the front of the package. I wrote milwaukee on this, as I thought at first there was some type of manufacturing mix up, and they replied that the pictures are not accurate depictions of the actual product, and the one I had was legit. So I ask why the deception?

In the video below, at 1:36 is the only place I have seen the correct chuck.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
