Milwaukee M12 3/8" Right Angle Drill/Driver

milwaukee_Right_Angle.jpgWe're quite enamored with our Hitachi 12-volt Right Angle Impact Driver (in fact, we had to use it yesterday), so we're happy that Milwaukee is expanding their already impressive 12-volt system with a new right angle drill/driver. It looks like a very useful tool and with a 3-3/4" head length, it should fit in some awkward spaces with no problem. It's also got a little LED and 12 clutch settings.

We also noticed that it only comes with one battery, which is too bad for anyone who hasn't bought into the Milwaukee M12 line. It makes sense though, as it's unlikely that the tool will ever get a full day's workout. But still, any cordless tool that only comes with a single battery makes us feel like we're somehow getting short-changed.

We also want to applaud Milwaukee on their press release. We read a lot of these things and most of them are filled with all sorts of business market share talk. But instead of going down that route, Milwaukee lays out the tool with this dead-on quote:


"A right angle drill driver is similar to jumper cables for a car," says Paul Fry, Director of M12™ for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "Many people do not realize they need one until they are in a tight space and need help."

it looks like this guy's going to cost in the arena of $140-$150, which we think is an entirely reasonable price.

Read the entire press release after the jump.

Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands its LITHIUM-ION system with the new M12™ Cordless 3/8" Right Angle Drill Driver. With a head size of only 3.75" and a 3/8" single sleeve ratcheting chuck, the new right angle drill provides maximum control and versatility in tight spaces or unpredictable situations.

"A right angle drill driver is similar to jumper cables for a car," says Paul Fry, Director of M12™ for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "Many people do not realize they need one until they are in a tight space and need help."

Leading the way in the advancement of power tool electronics, the 2415-21 features an electronic clutch, fuel gauge, speed control and built in overload protection.

With the introduction of the new right angle drill driver and plans to grow the M12™ cordless platform in the future, MILWAUKEE® continues to expand its leadership position in the sub-compact category. The M12™ platform will include over 20 tools by the end of 2009 that offer innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability.
