Bare-Tool Milwaukee 0724-20 V28 28-Volt 1/2-Inch Lithium Ion Cordless Hammer/Driver Drill (No Battery)

Milwaukee 0724-20 description

Milwaukee's 28-volt lithium-ion cordless is always charged up for the beefiest drilling and driving applications. The tool switches easily between drill, drive, and hammer modes for less downtime and smoother transitions between tasks. This ½-inch hammer drill cranks out a whopping 600 in./lbs. of torque for drilling large holes and driving heavy bolts for deck support, playground equipment, and post-and-beam construction. The two variable speeds do it fast, too, spinning along at 0-600 or 0-1800 rpm's for more productivity.

The V28 hammer-drill comes standard with a ½-inch all-metal, single-sleeve, ratcheting chuck with carbide jaws that keep bits from falling out or slipping. A comfortable non-slip, soft-grip handle reduces vibration and fatigue. For easy transport and access, Milwaukee's patented Clip-Lok system attaches the tool securely to the operator's belt or tool bag and easily releases with one hand—a boon for ladder work where there's is nowhere safe to rest the tool. Milwaukee cover's this nailer with a 5-year warranty. Battery not included. --Brian Olson

Milwaukee 28v Hammer Drill
I purchased the "bare tool" because I have some v28 batteries, I like them because they stay charged on the shelf (within reason). This drill broke in Consumer Reports testing of hammer drills. Also, it is made in China. Performed very well in drilling concrete block for anchors. The side handle is the best yet of Bosch, DeWalt, Makita that I own. It is easily adjustable and stays put.
if you understand what you get...
this drill is perfect. as much power as almost any corded drill (not a hole shooter/hawg etc though). if you realize that this doesn't come iwth batteries then it can be perfect for you. if you already have a few kits and 6 batteries like i do sometiems having an extra drill is nice so you can have two (pre-drill and then drive?) the hammer drill is nice, but for anything big or a lot of holes use a rotary hammer, this thing will wear out and you don't want to wreck your drill!
Great drill
This is a terrific drill. You'll get tired and have to stop before it does!
Amazing drill
I'm a commercial electrician and use this drill daily. Sometime for hours at a time. It has a ton of power. So much in fact it will darn near break your wrist if what you are drilling catches the bit and turns the drill when you least expect it. I'm constantly using large bore step bits to drill into steel j-boxes, door frames, etc. It's perfect. I have 3 other cordless drills and they stay at home. This is the only one I take to the job site with me every day. I'm so hard on this thing. I use it and use it hard. I have no clue what Consumer Reports could have possibly done to break it. I've used it so hard the drill body was too hot to rest your palm on and it didn't even smell. I've dropped it off a 10 foot step ladder onto concrete, picked it back up and used it the rest of the day. I've owned it 8 months and have put it through more than most people will in a lifetime and it's still going strong. I can't say enough about how extremely durable it is.

On the hammer setting it will drill 1/4" holes in block but that's about it, so don't expect much from the hammer setting if you have anything heavy-duty to drill. I use the Milwaukee 28v cordless SDS hammer drill for 99% of my hammer drilling anyway. (that drill is a superb hammer drill BTW)
As far as the other reviewers rating the drill down, READ THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION!. Under the caption "What's in the box", it says one hammer drill! That's it! READ next time you fools!
The best brand
Milwaukee is the best among all other so called industrial brands.

It has the best design, durability, and inter-changeable battery among other Milwaukee lines.

I originally found this to be a bit expensive, but gradually, I started to found the long term benefits of owning the best tools and I now would strongly recommend this brand and its tools to peers who are into DIY stuff.
I love it.
Easy to use and power to spare.

I have a corded drills and a V28. I reach for the V28 all the time. Have not run into an instance that the V28 could not handle.
Usually ships in 24 hours
