Avoid buying any Milwaukee tools with a chuck

Because when it fails, after a few months light use, they will refuse to replace it stating that ALL their units with chucks only have a 90 day warranty on the chuck.

Pass it on.

Are they allowed to say that ? Being a major part of the drill, not a consumable.

chargeback ?

If it fails after a few months then I am sure you can argue that it is not fit for purpose.

Hi all , new here, been lurking in the background for a bit.

Saw this thread and it stired me up a little

I have one of those special 18v red drills, I thought mine had a special feature where a 10mm drill made a 12mm hole.......
It fell over so many times on the bench damaging stuff....
I have found an excellent use for it ! If someone wants to borrow one of my black and green drills they get palmed of with the red thing.

Huh. I've been using my Milwaukees for years with no issues. I got the second one no more than 4 years ago. Maybe they've done some "value engineering" since then.
