I love all my Milwaukee tools!
Was a Dewalt man for 10 years + but after a friend telling me Milwaukee was better I had to try it and on an overall score for everything (price, power, quality, and runtime I'd have to score My Milwaukee rolls higher.

what is a hammer drill?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The hammer drill can and usually should be used for drilling into a hard surface like brick or concrete, i.e., masonry. Some hammer drills do have a feature which allows the user to turn it back into a regular drill. In contrast, an impact driver is used mainly for driving in fasteners like screws and nails.

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 120 days.
