Great price for two Milwaukee FUEL drills and 2no 4.0 batteries. The SDS drill alone normally sells for higher than this price

Very nice - those batteries should go on and on

Bargain.. Heat from me

strange they chose 12v for sds, normally they are 36v

ordered, thanks op
wanted a smaller brushless combi drill, I looked at other products and at the moment it appears only Milwaukee do one of this size with percussion /hammer

I think this is just a lightweight cordless sds , good for doing the odd hole up a ladder.

That's an excellent price, but as I only have the need for one SDS not sure if I want to risk cordless. Might have to research how powerful this it.

​no problem, the Torque on the combi is a match for most 18V drills

Both great tools and a really great price. OP is right- you'd normally pay £300 for the SDS kit alone

I use Milwaukee all the time and can recommend them over Makita and other brands, I use 18v impact wrenches from Milwaukee at my tyre fitting bay and we have never had any problems.

Tend to agree with this. Have had 3 Milwaukee cordless and 2 corded tools, and faults occurred with all of them. Batteries didn't last well either.
No problems with previous Metabo tools, (batteries for cordless bought in 1996 will still charge even now, although I wonder if the current ones are as well made) or subsequent Makita tools.

Use makita at home.

At work we have Milwaukee 18v brushless combi, 1/4 impact and cordless angle grinder. Hold up well and not had any problems yet.

​How do the brushless feel over the older/more common bushed?

Milwaukee stuff is top notch, got 2 impact wrenches. **** all over the snap on ones I had

Only used the brushless drill.

Theres loads more torque. On the non brushless when drilling 10.2mm or 12.5mm in plate steel it would often stall. Same with larger holesaws.

Brushless does not stall in the same way but you need to have a good grip of it.

Battery life seems a lot better.

To be honest they both feel pretty similar, just the extra torque.
