Review for Milwaukee M18™ 1/2" Compact Brushless Hammer Drill/Driver by KTW Electrical

This drill does what it says on the tin. I would recommend going for the more expensive version though if you are a tradesman, it doesn't seem as durable as the more expensive version.

I don’t personally own one of these but I often use my workmates one. It’s a great drill with plenty of power and durability. If my combi drill ends up packing up then this is definitely one I would consider getting next.

Easy to use, very powerful and not too heavy. Only downside is I’ve seemed to need a new chuck on both of these combi drills, don’t know if that’s my fault or down to the drill.

For the price you cannot go wrong with drill, significantly less than the fuel it is still amazing. I haven’t had any trouble in the 6 months I have owned mine. Would definitely recommend

Overall a good drill/driver. I've had mine about 2 years with only one problem, the chuck seizes occasionally and needs extreme force to release it. New chucks are very hard to find to fit and ended up buying one online for almost 50% the price of the drill. Overall though this far out does any of the other brands I've owned in the past.

28th September 2020

Great drill and reasonably priced if you can find it somewhere on offer. As with all Milwaukee tools it is built to last. Great as a multipurpose drill but does struggle if using in place of a Sds drill occasionally. Same as the driver , great for most materials but can struggle when trying to drive self tappers into thicker metals. As a one drill does all it’s a great bit of kit. I use it for my tool bag if I’m going to quick jobs that don’t require more heavy duty kit

Great drill but does struggle drilling into harder materials. If you do a lot of hammer drilling get the SDS drill but for anything else this is fine.

This has got to be the best Combi drill I’ve ever had. It’s sturdy, compact and has a fantastic hammer action which makes drilling in hard bricks very easy. Wouldn’t use anything else now

I got this drill at a bargain pricewith three batteries from Plumb Centre. The drill is great with plenty of torque, the only downside is that quite frequently the chuck jams on to the drill bits so I have to hold it with grips to release the drill bit

This drill absolutely knocks the spots off the equivalent Makita drill that I own, more torque, better quality and far better valve for money.

I bought the duel set combi and impact, these are by far the best iv had. Battery life is amazing with quick re charge, lightweight but feel chunky and strong. Powerful pair of drills that have never faultered. Expensive but a great investment and value for money. A must buy

This is a fantastic combi drill. Very powerful yet compact design . 4 stars because of a couple of improvement s i think could be made 1, a clutch system specifically for drilling with large dia bits or holesaws in wood as if the bit catches the torque on the drill is pretty high and could cause injury especially with single handed operation. 2, reposition speed selector as i often accidentally select it

Brought mine as part of a kit with an 18v sds drill and a 12v torch. I'm really happy with them and use them most days. They sit well in the hand and do what I need them to do. What more can I say?

Great, well balanced drill. Does everything I need from a Combi drill, though a third speed wouldn't hurt, but possibly because I'm used to that, having had three speed dewalts previous to upgrading to milwaukee. Chuck developed a fault after a year, after a bit of a faff actually getting hold of milwaukee to sort out the in warranty repair, they were very quick to turn it around, so still very happy with the brand.

After years of using CK croppers I was very kindly given these to review, I was dubious about how they would compare but I must say I only wished I had of come across them sooner!. Excellent for Cutting all types of cables and even cuts 25mm tails with ease. These shears leave a very clean and precise cut, and as with knives the build quality is second to none as usual. The only minor concern is they are slightly on the small side so once you get to the 25mm tails you need to use 2 hands to be able to open the jaw wide enough other than that they are spot on. If they become available in a larger size I think they would be ideal and will be purchasing a pair myself Would highly recommend them as part of your tool kit and are reasonably priced as well.

Great product, I have the multi purpose side cutter and the “first fix” cutters, nice to handle cut through most stuff I throw at them, had a faulty pair (fell apart) and was replaced with no hassle, good price highly recommended over other cutters

Once upon a tome used to be a good site, too many cowboys not being properly checked out and verified, too many customers expecting things done cheaply, they shortlist you and you get charged even if you can’t make contact.

Don’t normally do bad reviews, been with Checkatrade for a few years now, the idea is great but does requires a lot of back ground paperwork keeping reviews uptodate, if you don’t you fall lower down the list
