    I love this drill. My old V18 Milwaukee had it's chuck give out after 5 or 8 years of heavy home service. Did not consider any other maker. Was a bit concerned about the extra power and a description that suggested this might be bigger and/or heavier than my current model. Very surprised to see it's more powerful and smaller! A bit heavier but not hard to manage.. Battery charged won't power my old V18 batteries ( I still have a SawzAll) so have to have both chargers running. Drill/screwdriver/hammer all work fine. Chuck more positive and easier to handle than before. Even the LED spotlight that I thought would be gimmicky works great, and I wished I had such a feature years ago. Battery life seems comparable to the old unit. My old batteries had one failure after about 2 years, so the 3 year warranty on the new batteries is reassuring. The only negative is the reversing switch is slightly smaller and slightly harder to push all the way to get into reverse. Was happy to find this model without the smart phone app (what a waste that would be for a home tool) at a reduced cost. Overall, very happy with this product and very happy to stay in the Milwaukee family.

    Been using Milwaukee 2601-20 drills for several years at my cabinet business and they have served me quite well. I just picked up a 2704 for home use after my Bosch gave out and decided to go for a single drill package that could also hammer drill.

    Most notable with this drill is the torque-y power and increased RPM over the 2601 model I'm used too. I used it to stir up a bucket of drywall compound with a mud paddle and it didn't bog down a bit, felt like I was using my old 1/2" model 0228 plug in Milwaukee drill, wow! It's heavier than the 2601 but that was expected with the larger battery. The extra RPM took a short adjustment period to control as well. I shoot a lot of wood screws and have never relied on clutch features to set a screw flush, you gotta go easy on the trigger. With power, I suppose there comes a price, this drill is easily twice as loud as my 2601 and I'm not talking about the hammer drill function. I feel compelled to use hearing protection when using it. The forward/ reverse button feels smaller than the 2601 and it seems like I fish around for it more when changing direction on the 2704.

    For a multifunction drill, I'm quite happy with this tool over all.

    I have only used it for a couple projects so far; however this drill feels very solid and has plenty of speed and torque to get jobs done. It is much closer to my wired drill in performance than the old battery powered drill it is replacing. I haven't even had to switch out to the second battery pack yet since the first battery pack is still going strong on its first charge; which is impressive since my old wireless drill required constant battery charges.
