Milwaukee 2897-22 Cordless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Kit for HVACR
Prior to buying this tool I was looking at quite a range of offerings from Makita and DeWalt as well. I tend to bend in favor of big names such as these because of the after sale support and repairs. I picked up the Milwaukee 2897-22 because of its value, overall great reviews on different websites and the fact that I would be able to buy Milwaukee parts in the future if anything becomes faulty due to my professional heavy duty use.
Now, I've had this tool set for around a month. I fundamentally do HVACR establishment, yet do a reasonable piece of house repair and rebuilding.
How did the Impact Driver fare?
The tool works exceptionally well and battery life is quite good. Prominent things I've finished with it so far are I fabricated a 7 feet protection wall utilizing pine 1 x 6 dog ear treated pickets and torx deck screws. I also ran 3 to 3.5 lbs of 2” and around 2 lbs of 3" on a solitary battery charge.
Have additionally introduced solid backs over the roofs all through a house I am rebuilding to evacuate hang, utilizing 3" torx into hard, exceptionally old existing joists. The impact driver drives rapidly and with convenience.
It might be the expansive battery, yet I don't care for the ergonomics as much, it's not terrible, but rather it doesn't feel as good as other impact drivers I've had over the last few years.
How did the Hammer Drill fare?
I have not utilized the hammer functionality as of yet and won't utilize it regularly, as I already have a corded hammer drill however I do, at times, need to mount HVAC disconnects onto block houses and it is more helpful to have a cordless for such a little occupation.
I have however bored numerous openings with different speed bore and hole saw bits. This drill has huge amounts of force and bites through timber like nobody’s business. It additionally drives screws rapidly and has an extraordinary vibe and ergonomics to it. It just feels right.
I had perused about individuals having issues with their Chuck dropping bits. So far this has transpired once, however I fixed the toss by holding it and running the drill a couple times till tight. From that point forward I have constantly turned it till you feel the snap and it stops and feels bolted and have had no slips. As a source of perspective, I'd say this drill is a decent couple of inches shorter than the XRP smaller hammer drill and the weight distinction is sufficient to take note.
So far this is an unfathomable set that has awed me without a doubt. Enough so that I've now requested the fuel circular saw too. In case you're considering this set and can manage the cost of the premium, or are an expert who will be utilizing them day as a part of and day out, I don't think you'll have any second thoughts.
