Milwaukee M12 12V 3/8-Inch Drill Driver Review
We really love the feel of this drill. Very easy to handle because it’s nice and light. The battery lasted us an entire day on the job. The battery life is quite amazing on Milwaukee brand drills in general. Furthermore, the batteries charged fully in 30 minutes. The chuck holds the bits securely. The metal ratcheting chuck makes it easy to change drill bits. If you get the kit then you get an additional battery that you can throw on the charger and swap it out when the first one runs out, so you’ll never run out of battery with this one.
Milwaukee is a great brand, and they are known for their excellent high-quality products. This product is no exception to that. For most, the 12V version provides enough power to complete pretty much any DIY tasks. The compact size is good for tight and hard-to-access spaces. It lets you go places you wouldn’t usually be able to go to with an ordinary 18V-20V drill. It’s an excellent design with an ergonomic grip to boot. The build quality is great and it’s a very practical drill overall.
The LED light helps illuminate your workspace and is perfect for drilling in hard-to-see spots. The lightweight design also makes it very portable. It’s such a light and handy tool, the compact cordless drill series is really starting to grow on me. It has the perfect amount of power and torque for pretty much any home DIY task. It uses a variable speed trigger that is adjustable up to 1500RPM.
The price for the bare tool is fantastic for such a high-quality drill. In addition, Milwaukee offers a 5 year warranty with this drill! In our experience, Milwaukee makes great products, and has always stood by their products; and that’s why they offer such a great warranty. All in all, it’s a great compact cordless drill that offers plenty of power for pretty much any home/DIY task you’ll ever encounter.
