Milwaukee Fuel Hammer Drill Dies After One Month


Recommended Posts

I knew the reviews were starting to pour in on these things, and I knew it wouldn't be good.  I knew there was a catch to a company trying to keep up with DeWalt and Makita when it comes to batteries.  Finally adding "Samsung" (which I think are junk) in their battery packs, they are now equal to or no different than Ridgid/Emoli....

Well, here's a recent youtube video where a poor contractor suffered what I already KNEW was going to happen with these tools....

I am now fully convinced that I made the right decision to avoid Milwaukee's tool line while shopping at Home Depot during Black Friday, instead I went right to the Makita bare tool section and spent regular retail money on a bare circ saw and a bare angle grinder.  They also honored a ToolKing free battery offer for me too.  Then I went to Lowes, skipped right over the Hitachi and Bosch stuff, went right for a DeWalt 20V max combo on sale....

Today I am preparing the DeWalt kits with deck screws, pilot bits and lag bolts to help build a deck.  I will be out in the country with access to a power pole for the charger if necessary, planning to see which impact lasts longer my Makita or the 20v max.  Both are 3.0AH batteries....  It will be more for a tuning of my stuff than anything, as I know both tools themselves will LAST, unlike the Big Red Dud in the aforementioned videos....
