1,400 rpm, and none of the vibration ends
up in your bones. Add to all of that the nifty Clip-Lock
storage hanger, and you cannot help but love this drill.

The Best 14V Cordless, March 15, 2004
Reviewer: Rick Van Hazel
After getting the Milwaukee the other day I shopped all
the other 14V cordless drills at a couple stores
(something I actually should have done before just buying
one over the internet sight unseen, but everything turned
out great). I wasn't too worried about getting a bad
product since Milwaukee is a very quality brand when it
comes to power tools. I also wanted a 14V drill for its
portability over the 18V (less weight).
I used to always consider DeWalt first since I have a
fairly good selection of corded DeWalt products, but after
reading some negative feedback on their 14V drill I opted
to give the Milwaukee a shot.
One thing I noticed upon first inspection is the battery
can be attached running in either direction, a feature
that is not available on any other major brand drill that
I could find. Also included in this kit is a belt clip
that is just plain genious, the quick release mechinism
should be copied by a few cel phone manufacturers it is so
good. Every feature on the drill gives me the impression
that Milwaukee listened to the feedback from a lot of
consumers that knew what they were talking about: 20
position variable clutch on the keyless chuck with an
additional low and high torque setting, 2 quick storage
bit slots on the back, quick release belt clip, reversable
After owning lots of the "Yellow" tools, I think I've been
converted to Milwaukee. Plus red is much easier to keep
clean than yellow! This drill kit is superb and comes with
everything you need (minus bits) to get started: Drill, 2
batteries, charger, belt clip, philips bit.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!, September 19, 2004

I've used many cordless drills over the years, but none
compare to this jewel from Milwaukee. This has got to be
the most incredible cordless drill on the
market.....easily outperforms many 18V drills including
DeWalt (quickly becoming a "consumer" line of tools) and
Makita. The motor is strong and full of torque, chuck is
easy to use in changing out bits. The selectable load
range is a nice feature. The battery will connect from the
front or rear of the grip to accomodate the space on your
job. The carry case is handy and helps protect the drill
in the truck or during transport. Batteries charge quickly
with the included charger. Don't spend the extra money for
an 18V drill...you don't need to with this 14.4V gem. I
can't say enough about the superb performance of this
cordless drill. I don't loan it out, because I'm afraid I
won't get it back!!
Great Product!, July 26, 2006

This drill is wonderful for a 14.4V. Well designed and
functions as well as every Milwaukee tool I own. Five year
warranty is very nice as well. All my tools are Milwaukee
and I'll continue to keep it that way.

Item was delayed in coming, but it was perfect when it
arrived. In the little time I have had it, it works
wonderfully. Great drill if you want a really good one.
Above & Beyond, June 28, 2006

I can't say enough good things about this drill - it
really is above and beyond everything I've expereinced (Mikita,
Bosch, Dewalt, PC, etc.) and is a significant improvement
on their previous design. I was sold on a Bosch (also my
previous drill) and was tempted by the Mikita, then I saw
the Miwaukee and was saved. You will not regret this
purchase for a second.
Everything about this drill screams performance and ease
of use: the ballance is perfect plus the battery can be
turned around; the one handed chuck is amazing - no more
slipping bits when drilling through steel; the charger is
very fast; the clutch, speed and reverse switches are very
positive; the low speed (0-400 rpm) is ideal for driving
screws, yet the high speed (0-2,000 rpm) setting really
screams; the belt clip is very unique and the case even
has a locking compartment for keeping bits secure; the
case has real steel clasps and the handle is made up of
both case halves so you can't dump the contents if you
pick it up and it's not locked. I also love that the grade
of plastic on the drill is super durable and doesn't show
scuffs. The little rubber inserts keep it from sliding on
I've recently been working on boats in addition to the
usuall house stuff and have had to drive many #14 x 2"
wood screws into kiln dried white oak. The wood so tough
that I had to over ride the clutch by switching to "drill"
yet there is no shortage of torque to do the job - you
just have to be careful that it doesn't snap your wrist
Milwaukee has truly created a monster.
