Great recondition job
Wow – this is how a reconditioned tool should be. This thing has been hand inspected, polished, tuned and packaged with everything like new. Yes, there is a wear mark on the RAD, but I’ll put plenty more there myself. This tool came with all the gizmos and gadgets that come in the new package (wrench, manual wrapped in plastic, chuck removal tool, new handle and extender). The quik lok cord was brand new, the drill had been freshly lubed (a little extra in the case attested to that!). The mark of “reconditioned” was discreetly placed underneath, not glaringly on top – not important, but another nice touch on the part of milwaukee. This is the second reconditioned drill I have bought from Milwaukee, and I have not found a reason to regret either purchase. I think they are better than new, since that have been tested and adjusted a second time before arriving. All the features and a lower price – Milwaukee reconditioned tools work for me.
a real meat eater
This thing is a real work horse. It’s got the torque to drill through anything. Before when I needed a drill such as this, I either borrowed one or rented one. But when I saw the price I bought it with no hesitation. I’ve bought other Milwaukee reconditioned tools before and they performed flawlessly. This drill performs and delivers like a new one. When I knew that I had some remodel work to do I knew I had to get this knowing that I could use it without the meter running. I can also take off the angle drive and use this drill to mix tile grout and ect. This thing rocks. Ive never had a problem with any Milwaukee poer tools.
So far so good
I have not used it much yet but like what I have
Great price. Nice recondition job
The fact that Milwaukee reconditions the tools makes me feel that I’ll be getting a quality product. The drill performed flawlessly during the wiring of my whole new house. It doesn’t bog down at all even when drilling through 4 studs. Of course a set of Irwin Speebor Max Spade Bits doesn’t hurt
Great drill and a great price
I purchased this reconditioned drill due to the combination of capabilities and price. Generally I have found reconditioned products to be superior to factory new. They have had personal attention and been gone through at a level that doesn’t normally happen on the assembly line. This drill arrived looking like new. If it weren’t for the reconditioned stickers on the case, I would have thought it was new.
This thing is a real beast, will drill through about anything.
Good heavy duty drill
I’m very satisfied with this drill. I bought it for use with self-feed bits for drilling through joists, etc, and it has worked out very well. It feels like it will last the rest of my life, if not longer. It wasn’t immediately obvious to me from the description that the High/Low gearing is not selectable with a switch — instead it involves removing the right-angle mechanism, removing the chuck, putting the chuck on the other side of the right-angle mechanism, and re-attaching. Not a quick operation. But for my purposes, I leave it on Low all the time anyway. As far as speed control, it is true variable-speed (trigger controlled), just as you’d expect, but I wasn’t 100% sure on that from the description either.
milwaukee right angle drill
This drill has been great. It was a factory-reconditioned drill, but I wouldn’t have been able to tell except for the stickers that said so. No dings or scratches on this drill when it came. I did have to change the 90 degree attachment around because it was on the faster setting and I wanted the slower setting. That wasn’t to easy because I couldn’t remove the chuck. I had to take it to a motor repair shop where they removed the chuck fairly easy because they have the right tools. And they didn’t charge me. But as far as the drill works, it is great. Very happy with the drill and the price compared to brand new.
If Marvel’s ‘The Thing’ were a drill, this is the kind he would be
Owned it for 2 months, have drilled a lot of joist holes. Coupled with an auger bit, you can wire a house in short order. Yes, it is a little on the heavy side, but it is built to take the punishment of a demanding job. You wouldn’t want a tool that wears out before you do. Using American-made tools feels good to me as well.
I love it
