    How does anyone know exactly what they're getting from Milwaukee, the same item appears to have so many different model numbers:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

  11. Cordless grinder is great. Needed to strip a roof the other day - very quick with a cordless grinder. Safer too than with mains.

    My most used cordless tools have been grinder and reciprocating saw.

    By the the way if you can bring yourself to buy Makita (and they're good tools) Powertoolmate had good black friday discounts today on the lxt range.

    My old 18V Milwaukee drill is getting tired, its a brushed one and it stinks if you give it hard work. I've had it apart and the brushes aren't done either.

    Anyway I'm thinking of replacing it with a new one, but could somebody tell me what the difference is between a drill driver =, a hammer drill driver, and a hammer drill. Which ones the one to get?
    Think I just went in and bought what the shop had last time.

    This is the Milwaukee page for M18 drills !!!!:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    A drill driver will have torque settings on it for screw driving, the hammer drill will have hammer function and obviously the hammer drill driver will be all singing all dancing

    Funnily enough yesterday afternoon, the gearbox in my Bosch drill started grumbling, well its going to have to hang on anothrr month or two now, but its batteries are still excellent and the drill has provided great service even as a recent convert to Milwaukee i can still see me replacing my drill like for like.

    Anyone seen any deals on the 3/4 impact wrench.
    Seen the 1/2 inch version for £199+vat with Sgs..
    The 3/4 is twice the money :(

    have 18 v fuel hammer drill but hammer action is pathetic unless working vertically down hill ok into concrete but not good into stone with new quality drills. Need mains power and a heavier drill reckon for ease of work
     
  17. You need an SDS for concrete and stone

    Makita make a nice one. DHR242 for just over £100
