Mini Workhorse: Milwaukee 12v M12 Drill 2410-22

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.

You will never want to load up and run hoses again after this cordless...
