As you might recall, Milwaukee is coming out with a new M18 Fuel compact drill and hammer drill. The redesigned drill/drivers are built with brushless motors and look to be optimized for their RedLithium battery tech. Official specifications have finally been made available.
650 in-lbs of Torque
We’ve seen 650 in-lbs mentioned in Milwaukee’s official specification listings, but it can deliver up to 725 in-lbs of power if you pair it with a high capacity XC battery, which bests even Bosch’s newest offerings.
8.1″ Length and 4.5 lbs
This isn’t terribly compact or lightweight, but it does give Milwaukee a slight edge over the competition. In comparison, Bosch’s heavy duty hammer drill weighs in at 4.9 lbs, and Dewalt’s 20V Max premium version weighs 5.2 lbs.
Milwaukee Compact M18 Hammer Dill (2602-22) vs FUEL (2604-22CT)
Milwaukee’s current same-class non-Fuel M18 hammer drill can deliver 525 in-lbs of torque. It is also slightly longer at 8.5″ and a bit heavier at 4.9 lbs. Note that the 2602-22 is weighed with an XC extended-capacity battery, and the 2604-22CT a compact M18 battery.
