So I got a brand new Milwaukee lithium ion 18v hammer drill. It is the new model they have and ran me close to $300. I have been having a lot of trouble with it. First off, it seems like the battery does not last long at all, sometimes it is all I can do to do drill a 2 3/4 holesaw hole through a roof. Besides the seemingly short battery life, when I go to spin the bit out while holding the chuck, the drill will freeze and growl at me. I get the same growl sometimes when I use a holesaw too. I am used to a drill taking me for a ride and smashing my fingers, not stalling out. Did I get a crap drill or what is the deal? I bought Milwaukee because I know they have a great reputation for their sawzalls and other stuff. I also have their radio. Any suggestions? I took it to a repair station and they said it is fine.
No announcement yet.
Milwaukee V18 Hammer Drill is terrible.
