Milwaukee 2691 Combo Kit - Pros

Both tools in the kit are precise, highly efficient, and heavy duty.  The kit is backed by a 5 year warranty.  The drill driver is an excellent tool for different applications, such as:  drilling metal to run conduit, running copper pipe, running pipe through wood, setting duct anchors, drilling pilot holes for ductwork, fastening duct, and basic fastening.   The impact driver is an excellent tool for fastening hex metal screws, pipe couplings, outlet boxes, conduit clamps, pipe clamps, switch plates, panel boxes, and basic fastening.

Users love the high power of these 18 volt tools.  They both have concentrated power to ensure accuracy and professional results.  They are compact, lightweight, and durable.   The belt clip is useful, as well as the storage box that can be used to hold drill bits.

Lithium-ion batteries tend to work up until they don’t.  Once they are out of battery life, they simply stop without warning.  People really like the battery indicator that will show you how much power you have left on the battery before you start your project.

Milwaukee 2691 Combo Kit - Cons

While there are not too many cons that the Milwaukee 2691 possesses, there are some minor complaints to consider.  Users say that while they are durable and lightweight, they are slightly heavier than other lea ding brands.

The impact driver does not have a glow ring that makes it easier to locate in dark areas.  The rubber bumper strip on both sides of the nose is a good feature; however, some people have complained that they fall off easy.  They can be replaced with super glue.

There are some conflicting reviews as to the battery life.  Some users said the battery life was excellent, while others complained that the battery life was short.  However, they did say that the batteries charged rather quickly.  You cannot get the combo with a larger M18 battery, which is something people are interested in.

Bottom Line

This combo tool pack is definitely an excellent buy.  The name itself has an excellent reputation, and according to users, the Milwaukee 2691 is no exception.  While there are some cons to consider, it appears that the pros outweigh the cons for the Milwaukee 2691.
