In the summer of 2015 Milwaukee® asked a selection of non-Milwaukee® tradesmen to try out the new Milwaukee® 18V FUEL™ Percussion Drill for a trial period of 2 weeks. The selected panel of tradesmen were then given the opportunity to put the new Milwaukee® Drill through its paces. At the end of the trial period, the panel were asked to make the choice of whether to retire their existing tool or join the Milwaukee® FUEL™ revolution.
The small print
Tradesperson that were based and worked in the UK, used and owned a non-Milwaukee® 18V Percussion Drill. Each trailist handed over their existing non Milwaukee tool for two weeks in exchange for the new Milwaukee® 18v Percussion Drill (M18 FPD). After the two week period they could have their existing tool back instead of the Milwaukee®, or keep the New Milwaukee® and retire their existing drill.
The Milwaukee drill has amazing fine delicate trigger operation and allows me to use it daily and achieve more accurate control
"End of an era I’m moving on to Milwaukee®"
A well balanced drill with great power! The battery life has made applications of drilling 1000 holes in to 8 x 4 Ply wood a breeze!
"I’m not going to shed any tears throwing this away."
I have been using this drill for various jobs from drilling holes for pipes to fixing boilers to walls. The beauty of this tool is that is it really powerful and a lot quicker than other drills I have used. It is a cracking bit of kit!
"Time to get rid of my old tool and throwing it in the skip is the best way."
I have been drilling through masonry to fit 16mm raw plugs and also through stainless steel. It is very compact in size and much better balanced that my old drill.
"Should have got rid of my old tool years ago."
Drilling into brick work, fitting doors and window frames, screwing into wood… is there anything this drill can’t do? The battery power is amazing! I have been using this daily and only needed to charge it twice in the last two weeks.
This drill has been great for drilling through brick and joists - no problems at all! It has so much more power than I am used to and the battery gauge showing the power that it left is great.
"Time for the skip"
I can do more work than ever with new Milwaukee® Drill
I have been stripping electrical distribution boxes and using the drill for general maintenance. This Milwaukee tool outperforms my current 24V drill!
"Thanks to Milwaukee® I won’t be needing my old drill anymore."
I used the Milwaukee drill daily for drilling & fitting commercial and domestic locks - Fantastic run time and very powerful with a quick and easy bit change.
"Hasta la vista Baby."
Very impressed when drilling into stone, masonry & breeze blocks with a 10mm Masonry bit! Great sized, well balanced and well-handled drill with so much torque!
"The skip is the best place for it."
