Milwaukee m18 fuel 2603 review

Milwaukee M18 Fuel Review and ratings

Working in construction has taught me that my tools need to work as hard as I do. From extreme temperatures to various materials, I need one tool that works in all climates and on all materials. I also needed the tool to be cordless, but to hold a charge for a full working day without stopping. I decided on the Milwaukee m18 fuel combo kit. I've always known Milwaukee was an excellent name for tools, but I just recently got the cash I need to pick one up. The kit came complete with both an impact driver and a hammer drill, which was perfect for my needs.


So What Do I like about The Milwaukee M18 Fuel Cordless Drill?

Solid construction with an excellent weight, not too heavy, not too light. The Milwaukee 2603-22 XC is also made with a brush less motor which will give the motor a much longer lifespan and enable it to work in extreme temperatures.
While expensive, this drill is built well and designed to handle multiple material types and even harsh weather conditions. The drill also doesn't come with a built in bit holder, meaning you'll need to carry around a case to hold your bits instead of storing them handily on the unit.

Top Questions About This Drill

Q. Does the Milwaukee m18 fuel impact driver come with 3.0 or 4.0 batteries and how long do they last?

A. This Milwaukee driver and drill comes with two 4.0 Ah batteries These last about 12 hours of solid work and only need to be charged at night.

Q. Are the necessary drill bits included with the combo kit?

A. No, the kit only includes the driver and the drill, you'll need to purchase the drill bits you need separately.

Q. Is there any difference between the corded models and the battery-powered drills?

A. The Battery-powered models are just as capable with working with concrete, brick and other materials -- exactly like my previous corded Milwaukee drill. As far as I can tell, there's no loss in performance with the new batteries Milwaukee includes.

Q. What size is the box and where is the product made.

A. The box will weigh about 13 pounds and is 16 x 4.7 x 12.1 inches. The pieces are made in both Afghanistan and in China.

Q. Can I use my other Milwaukee batteries with the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill?

A. Yes, any existing Milwaukee batteries will also work with the fuel hammer drill and driver.
Overall, I'm thrilled with my purchase of the Milwaukee m18 fuel combo kit, it does exactly what I need it to do and works just as hard as I do. With solid construction I don't have to be worried about damaging the drill, and since the batteries last a full 12-hours I can be sure that I won't need to stop working just to recharge my drill batteries. The two included batteries is a plus when I'm on the road and I'm unable to get back to a charger---I just bring along the spare battery and keep on working.
