Mini Workhorse: Milwaukee 12v M12 Drill 2410-22

Dec 29, 2011

When my old Milwaukee drill finally wore out a few years ago, I needed something in a pinch to finish a job. I was on a budget but didn’t want to get a cheap drill that I knew I would regret later. So I bought the M12 to get the job done. It seemed small to me at the time and I was concerned about it being able to deliver the torque I needed to get in the long screws I had to set. Boy, was I surprised.

The M12 compact drill is a work horse and is quite capable of driving large screws into wood and drilling holes to boot. It is the perfect companion for smaller jobs and is great for tight spaces. It is also very durable and well designed.

The Milwaukee M12 12 volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill Driver

The Milwaukee m12  12 volt Compact drill has a great feature set that makes them well worth the money. The first thing I noticed when I bought the drill was the flashlight above the trigger. That great little feature has saved me numerous times when I am drilling or screwing something in a dark spot.The unit also has a battery light indicator so you know when it is time to recharge. Add a all metal keyless 3/8″ chuck and 20 adjustable torque settings and this unit is a compact dynamo. The unit also uses an all metal gear box for great reliability. Those features have led to this drills rating at 4.5 stars on Amazon.

 

Milwaukee M12 Lithium-Ion Battery

The M12 Battery is compact and does a great job of powering this small drill. The battery is lithium and last a long time. It is very light compared to old NiCd batteries and much smaller. It also charges quickly, usually under 30 minutes. Lastly, the drill has a charge indicator so you know how much juice is left in the battery, no more guess work.
