  1. I watched a video on YouTube that addressed that issue with the screech and lag in trigger response. Gen 3 seems to have fixed that
  2. Why haven’t u sent those tools out for fixing? It’s free and in a week it’s back to u
  3. this kinda thing is why I switched to Milwaukee. Little more money up front than an eBay tool but every time it breaks I send it off and have it back in a week. My drills get beat up so the quick turnaround keeps me going. Last time I took my dewalt drill in they told me 4-6 weeks. Just a thought since u seem to have to keep working on it. Write the numbers down and compare
  4. Good deal! Wish they would offer these new tools in packout cases
  5. Hmm I’m finding it hard to believe that milwaukee makes their own chucks, but just for one drill? Why don’t all their drills have it then?
  6. So the knurled pattern gives u 30% more grip strength... lol I wish they’d cut back on all their percentages sometimes it’s starting to sound so cheesy. Either way I’m on my 3rd bad chuck this year on my gen 2 so I’ll definitely be getting one of these
  7. I think if u shoot YouTube vids and tool fights and run tools trying to max them out then I’m sure they get hot. Everyday use I’ve never had this issue and if I did it’s because I was too lazy to get out my hole hawg or my sds. I agree tho on the small vents. Seems like any tool branded with ‘fuel’ is sealed up with small and/or minimal vent holes. Kinda opposite of what other brands do. Can’t wait to get this drill tho. I’d like to know the specs on the chuck and if it’ll be available for purchase and able to be mounted on the gen 2 drill.
  8. Sent my 2704 in for service and they put a non-carbide chuck on it from a 2703. I like it better and I haven’t had the need to use channel locks to loosen it. That’s been a big issue with a few of our drills. I can’t see wear being an issue, once the chuck is locked down it’s not going anywhere. I think the carbide inserts help it bite more into bits with a round shank but anymore all the bits I use have hex shanks so I don’t see the need.
  9. That’s a good video, nice to see someone get up close and show the tools a little bit better
  10. All I saw was for the new drill on Acme and they say July 5th for a ship date
  11. Maybe that’s been released as well as a budget option. I saw a video of a new compact brushless drill (non-fuel) also released but I haven’t heard anything about it.
  12. The new drill looks nice with improvements on the chuck, lighting and handle. Any info on the chuck they are using?
  13. Sorry but I’ve used that ridgid drill and the computer shuts it’s down, wouldn’t let me drill a 3/4” hole into wood in speed 2. I was really disappointed. In comparison my milwaukee 12v drill in speed 2 will even tho it only has like 350 in/lbs of torque. So no matter what the specs say every drill is different. Every ice auger video I’ve seen the guys use a dewalt or milwaukee 18v drill. I’d look at those personally.
  14. Superfeet. I actually don’t like insoles that are too soft and cushy
  15. I’ve never found a need for these bits especially on outlets and switches where a Phillips tip works just fine
  16. I found one other video reviewer who mentions he had the same problem, he didn’t show it tho, just says milwaukee sent him another to test and that’s what he used. I wonder how some of these guys get these tools sent to them for testing. Every video is the same stuff in a different garage except one guy who pets his cat and drills in a frozen tree stump in his front yard lol I’d like to see someone actually use these at work and post a video of that. If I were milwaukee I’d say “ here’s the tool, send us back an x-minute long video of u using the tool at work and we will edit and post the vid
  17. not my video but apparently someone else had the same problem. Found this on youtube
  18. Well I could not get the drill to replicate that yesterday or today no matter what I tried. I guess that’s a good thing tho. I kept running it the other day to where it got real hot and I put it out in my cold truck over night so I don’t know if that had anything to do with it. Either way it’s healed and/or the gremlins got out so all is good. I got video on my phone when it was acting up but it won’t let me post it here. I’ll have to figure out how to do that
  19. So here’s a quick update. I exchanged the kit at hd for a new one for a couple of reasons with the drill. The chuck had too much wobble it just irritated me. The mode selector collar was pretty loose and would change settings when inserting or removing bits from the chuck. And lastly it made a weird clicking sound when u let off the trigger. So the new drill is great, sort of. The chuck is dead accurate. The mode selector collar is really stiff with real distinct clicks so there’s no issue with accidentally changing settings. BUT!... the clicking is even worse. Right out of the box if u go fro
  20. Same here, I typed up the same question but forgot to post it. I’m the only guy at work that prefers curved claw hammers but I have yet to hear a con that out ways the pro’s imo. -I’m not a framer
  21. Stuck. Sometimes I can’t even push the key in and sometimes it just won’t turn. I’ll have to hold a lighter to it to get it to work. I’ll look that stuff up thanks
  22. I bought a new aluminum truck cap and the locks on the tool boxes and back gate keep freezing! So annoying! I’ve filled them up with wd-40, pb blaster, and some special antifreeze/graphite lube stuff that is supposed to prevent freezing and nothing works. Anyone have any tips? This is a new issue to me, thanks
