Many of the best cordless drills have a problem of being too pricey for the average user, despite the many pros of the device. Milwaukee cordless drills put a stop to this red flag and did so in style. A very reasonable price and a five-year warranty made it one of the favourite cordless drills amongst users, both homeowners and professional industry carpenters.

All this comes combined with a 2.500 maximum RPM, expanding the target customer body by a lot. Both by inquiring and testing this particular model, there were no records of the motor failing or catching fire even well into two hours on the max setting. This reliability is a massive advantage over the competition.

Although the batteries do last a somewhat long 50 minutes, all the other pros completely make up for this and place the M12 firmly on every Top 10 best cordless drills this year, without a doubt. On top of all that, the guys at Milwaukee didn’t omit anything – the grip and the handle are compatible even with left-handedness.

All in all, there isn’t a model that combines speed and price in such a powerful and efficient form. Five years is unheard of when it comes to power tool warranty and on top of everything, you won’t suffer unexpected shutdown because of a dying battery. This is solved by a fuel gauge that displays remaining time, up to the second. A completely deserving member of the best cordless drills family for a reason.
