GEN 2 Milwaukee M18 Brushless and Upgraded Compact Brushless Drill / Hammer Drill & Impact Driver

Milwaukee has announced new M18 brushless compact drill/driver, hammer drill and impact driver. As the previous M18 brushless compacts, they are positioned above the M18 brushed compact power tools by featuring a brushless motor yet positioned below the “FUEL” models while offering a more compact, lighter package than FUEL power tools yet still offering competitive performance in it’s class and a brushless motor.

As a quick wrap-up, the new M18 compact brushless drill/driver model 2801-22CT will be replacing the current compact M18 brushless model 2701-22CT. Although torque stays the same at 500 in-lbs, the new model is more compact at 6.5 inches in length and lighter at 3.4 lbs than the outgoing model. 2nd speed RPM stays the same however 1st speed RPM goes up to 500 which should deliver faster drilling and driving in the 1st speed than the outgoing model.

The new M18 compact brushless hammer drill model 2902-22 isn’t mentioned as replacing the 1st gen M18 compact brushless hammer drill so it appears this will be sold alongside the original model for different options at different price points. The new model is not only more compact than the outgoing model at 7″ length, it also has more torque, lots more at 725 in-lbs making it closer in performance to the original M18 Fuel Hammer drill. Also just like the original M18 Fuel hammer drill, this new “compact” model also sports a removable side handle. The extra handle is needed since it’s packing more torque which requires as much grip as possible so you don’t hurt yourself. This new compact M18 brushless hammer drill model comes packaged with XC 4.0 batteries instead of compact 2.0 batteries.

The new M18 compact brushless impact now comes in two flavors in a single speed (model 2850-22CT) and a 3 speed (model 2851-20) both of which have variable speed triggers. Both new models have the same stats other than the single or triple speeds which include 1600 in-lbs of torque which is higher than the outgoing model and are more compact and lighter as well at 5.1″ length and 2.9 lbs with compact 2.0 battery.

The M18 compact drill driver and single speed impact are launching in August 2018 while the other two are launching in September 2018.
