A good price for a decent brand 18 volt twin pack with 2 x 4.0 Ah batteries

There was a deal on here last December for a Makita Combi Drill with 2 x 3ah batteries from the Plumbcenter for £119.99. I ordered it but when I went to pick it up they had none left. I complained so they offered me a Brushed Milwaukee set with 2 x 4ah batteries (can't remember the exact model off the top of my head) but it was retailing around £180. I took it, but it wasn't really what I wanted so they knocked a further £20 off the price. Within two weeks of using it only a few times for a project, the chuck had developed a wobble.

I rang the Plumbcenter and they instructed me to call Milwaukee. I remember having problems actually finding a number for their UK customer service so I called my nearest Milwaukee service center (which wasn't too near) and they said the chuck wasn't covered under a Milwaukee guarantee. More alarmingly, the engineer I spoke to said he has numbers of them in for repair so he doesn't/wouldn't stock them to sell himself for this reason. This was said by a Milwaukee service center affiliate found through their UK website so I believe there was merit in what he had to say.

I was lucky the fault happened not long after purchase so I was able to get a refund from the Plumbcenter. Alongside other sources, I find HUKD members opinions useful for gauging the quality of a product I have limited knowledge of so I thought I'd contribute my experience with a Bushed Drill from Milwaukee.

Excellent price, most other shops charge 200+ Vat just for the Combi drill and batteries.
Effectively the impact driver is free.

The Combi is brushless too.

Exactly what I thought. I need a new drill for work so think this might be the one

Excellent offer. Absolutely superb gear, for me Milwaukee sets the benchmark for the rest.

You have clearly never used a Festool or Hilti then I presume.

Now if I had the money Festool would be on my list

This is the brushed version of the drill just to be clear.

I have a 2012 Milwaukee M18 combi drill, and a 2014 Milwaukee M18 Impact driver and the battery design is still the same as now.


Both have been faultless, build quality is superb, I would not hesitate to buy Milwaukee again.

Heard Milwaukee aren't what they used to be. Still not bad but maybe not worth the premium price tag.

Is it a skukum choocher? (AvE)

Ahem! Metabo.

Great kit bought the same at Plumb centre for £173.99 plus vat.

Selco sell to the public

Edit
nope i was wrong, as dozstanfordpointed out and still says trade only on the website, thought they were open to the public now

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure the brushless version is called "fuel".

No fuel on this version so not so good!
