    Milwaukee vs. Makita, June 27, 2009
    This review is from: Milwaukee 2691-22 18-Volt Compact Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I recently owned a Makita set so I will compare the two. I use the tools every day in remodel and new construction work.
    * The Milwaukee is slightly heavier, but still easy to use.
    * The belt clip on tool base is very useful. Makita doesn’t have same feature.
    * Battery life seems to be the same. I love the charge level indicator on the battery, but when it is dead, it stops immediately, no gradual loss.
    * The hard plastic carry case will last much longer than the Makita cordura bag, which was pretty beat up after six months of use.
    * Both brands have a use light above trigger but Makita’s will glow for a short stretch after trigger release whereas the Milwaukee turns off immediately.
    * Makita likewise includes the glow ring on the impact driver that makes finding it in the dark easier, very handy.
    * The Milwaukee impact driver has a rubber bumper strip on both sides of the nose for friction protection [nice] but one end on both sides come unattached with very little use [annoying]. I had to super glue them in place and they have held for several weeks.
    * I anticipate no difference in tool life and durability having used both tool brands for many years.

    After owning two of the white Makita lith-ion drills I had to return both of them because the charger kept killing the batteries dead. From what I have read this is a known problem.

    Here is what I like better about the Milwaukee.

    First the charger does not kill the $80 batteries no matter how long you leave them on the charger. Second, the Milwaukee has a great battery charge indicator right on the battery. This is very important with Lith-Ion batteries as they have full power right up to the end and quit without warning. With is level gauge you know exactly how much battery life you have when you grab your drill. Third, the Milwaukee drill has bit storage on board, handy for philips and reg bits. Lastly the red color holds up much better then white.

    Hope this helps.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Milwaukee 2691-22 18-Volt Compact Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    How could a craftsman who’s bought Milwaukee tools for over 20 years, (and many are Still in constant use), mark a “one star”? Two reasons: very very poor engineering and cheap brittle plastic. First of all I should have realized a change when my trusty ‘ol 18 volt nicad Milwaukee drill slid off a chair onto a wood floor – and the handle snapped in half! Luckily I could buy the case, and after 2 hours of reassembly it is functioning again. Their plastic looks maleable, it is an illusion – it is incredibly brittle. The opposite of what is needed in a ‘Heavy Duty” tool. So I should have known better than to buy this new set. I could find nothing amiss with the impact driver – it looks like good ol Milwaukee quality. But, believe me or not, the driver drill snapped in half too! And this was one half hour out of the box, drilling studs with a 1″ spade bit for wiring. The bit caught on a knot, I resisted, and the drill snapped. Same brittle plastic. But far worse is the engineering / design of the drill. On a cursory inspection it looks strongly built. It’s totally an illusion. All that holds the drill motor to the handle is two tiny pieces of brittle plastic hidden under pretty coverings.
    Amazon prime is wonderful, they refunded in full in short order. I so regret I did not take pictures of this pathetically designed tool broken in two in my hands! And I am no gorilla -( like those who still respect these Chinese made Milwaukees may need to presume). For me, 20 years of supporting them has come to an end until I learn they have recalled this tool And changed their plastic formulation. Next day I went out and bought a Bosch set, nearly the same price, with even better specs on torque. (Bosch CLPK23-180 18V 2-Tool Litheon Combo Kit) After careful inspection and hard use I can say they are designed very well. It seems Bosch hasn’t gone the route of Milwaukee. Whew. My partner uses a Makita set, and as can certainly happen on a job site, eventually one fell a story and half. We just picked it up and kept going, as it should be. Makita is not quite as well built IMHO, but certainly a good second choice. I have never written a review before, hope it’s useful.
