Right angle drill kit
Hopefully Amazon will publish this review. The first one I wrote disappeared into their system somehow.
Variable speed Angle Drill
Bought this tool during free battery promotion at Amazon.Used this drill to install fasteners in metal roofing and wall flashing in hard to reach areas.Own a Bosch 12 volt litheon multi angle drill that was underpowered to drive fasteners quickly.tried this Milwaukee angle drill and breezed through application in a short period of time.Plenty of torque and with the variable speed you can adjust to prevent overtightening of fasteners.Only cordless variable speed angle drill out as other manufacturers produced single speed.This drill is great for installing gutter and drilling holes where a standard drill cannot,
Heavy duty tool. It’s heavy with the extra capacity …
Heavy duty tool. It’s heavy with the extra capacity battery and the grip is wide, but it packs a punch and will handle just about anything that you need it for. The brand name “Milwaukee” sells itself.
Not enough power for 1" holes in 2by material
Just got my hands on this Milwaukee 18V right angle drill and when using it yesterday the tool stalls out and a red light flashes when you drill holes into 2 by material. I checked the clutch setting and it was on drill mode, it just did not have a lot of torque. I was attempting to drill a 1″ hole with a spade bit in an awkward position where I needed a right angle drill. The red light kept flashing and it could not complete the hole. I borrowed my buddy’s old DeWalt 18V cordless right angle and it got through in high speed without too much of a problem. I don’t drill 1″ holes that often, but if the DeWalt can handle it I would expect Milwaukee to as well. Also, the grip is fatter than I would like. On the plus side, it has a cool trigger that can be used by squeezing the top or bottom of the trigger and it has a lot of rubber grip compared to my buddy’s DeWalt. All in all this is an OK tool, but I wish it had more power and a 1/2″ chuck would be handy.
Too fast and too hard to handle.
I bought the Milwaukee 2615-21 to use as a drill/driver. Not the best choice. True, it’s compact and the drill head fits into tight spaces, but that’s where the pros end. It does have variable speed control, but it doesn’t have a ‘high’ and ‘low’ speed range like it should. That, coupled with the oversized trigger makes low speed control difficult as almost all of the gripping area is occupied by the trigger. Even with large hands ( I could palm a regulation basketball when I was in the fourth grade) it is very awkward to hold and operate the trigger without sending the driver into hyper-speed just by gripping it. This, of course, spins the driving bit out of its intended position causing the bit to wear much faster than it should. It seems to me that the operator has to be able to grip the tool with one finger at the top, or use both hands with one at the bottom. The ‘electronic’ clutch helps, but it’s not as effective as the clutch in my other drill/driver, a Makita. This 2615-21 is better suited as simply a cordless right angle drill.
Good, but dangerous pinch point
This right angle drill works well as a right angle drill. It worked in some tight spaces and got me out of a tight spot. I would not use it without gloves. The drill torqued and turned and pulled my finger flesh into the nip between the drill head and shroud. Beware!
Cordless Right Angle Drill Kit
He uses it all the time without problems. Good tool and sturdy. Set comes with a battery charger. Recommend this tool.
MILWAUKEE RIGHT ANGLE DRILL
M 18 Cordless 3/8 right angle drill
Size wise its great for driving screws in tight places but Its power leaves something to be desired. Could not drill 3/4″ holes in 2x4s. I love Milwaukee but this tool needs more torque or an extra gear.
