So Far, So Good
I've had this for about 2 years now. I use it around the house/shop - not every weekend, but monthly. Li-Ion Battery holds charge between uses. It has been a great tool for me thus far.

Excellent Tool
This Milwaukee recon drill is added to five others. I use several batt. drivers for a host of different jobs--often seven days a week. This tool (even though reconditioned) performs like a new one. When it wears out, it will be replaced with another just like it.

Excellent quality and great price!
The drill is compact, well balanced and powerful. The Milwaukee name says it all, and I was not disappointed with this tool. I find it useful for long use as the compact design and weight are not hard on the arm or the hands. Quality construction and the ability to take on any job that demands this tool are things I like and I look forward to many years of use.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
