Must be a good deal?

I couldn't resist giving myself an early christmas gift today. A local hardware store had a sale and I bought a cordless drill. It's a 12 V Milwaukee, comes with three batteries, a case and a soft bag. Got it for 1,200 SEK wich would be around $ 180. I have no previous experience with that brand but it seems like a quite good drill, perfect for smaller jobs.

In the US Milwaukee is arguably the best quality name in cordless power tools. Definitely one of the top 2 or 3. Hope you get years of good service from it!

Getting it with 3 batteries is definitely a score! Milwaukee is a fine brand and should give lots of service. Nice Christmas present!

The only negative I had with Milwaukee was the batteries will retain a memory if not fully charged. Just be sure to fully charge the batteries each time. They may be different now, I just don't know if they are or not.

Long....Milwaukee has been plumber's "go to" drill motor brand here since probably 'round 1970 or so.They're no-nonsense industrial grade.Their sawzalls are trend setter's(industrial design)as well.

They have a whole line of equip.....all very rebuildable.Recently got on the China boat.....so can't say how they'll perform longterm?The old stuff is built like proverbial tanks.Nice present,+1 above...am sure you'll get years of good service,BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
