Milwaukee Compact 18-Volt Drill

milwaukee_18_compact.jpgIt must have been a busy few months in the R&D lab of Milwaukee Tools. Not only are they on the verge of releasing their new 12-Volt Sub Compact Driver, but they're also about to launch a new Compact 18-Volt Drill. The Drill's got a good selection of standard features and with Milwaukee's name on it, it should be a very durable item as well.

It comes equipped with a LED light, on-board bit storage, 22 position clutch, a belt hook, and a fuel indicator. Because of the lightweight lithium ion battery, the whole package comes in at about 4 lbs. The drill comes with 2 batteries and a 30-minute charger.

Like Ridgid's similar compact 18-volt drill, we're thinking this is going to be popular with a wide range of people. Because it's so lightweight, it won't be intimidating to those who don't use tools all the time and because of its power contractors should love it.

Like the Sub Compact Driver, this tool will be available in October.
