Milwaukee M18 Brushless Threaded Rod Cutter Review
The Milwaukee M18 brushless threaded rod cutter is one of the most popular and best selling screwdrivers in the world. It’s a great tool for any DIYer or professional who needs to cut through metal quickly and easily. If you’re looking for a good quality, reliable, easy-to-use screwdriver with excellent cutting power, then this is it!
It comes with a battery operated motor that allows you to turn the head around 360 degrees, which makes it very convenient when working on small parts. You’ll need to buy extra batteries if you want to use it all day long. There are two different heads available: a standard Phillips head and a flat blade.
They both have the same size cutting surface and they work well together.
Easy to operate; just twist the handle clockwise and counterclockwise to change direction. Easy to clean too! (You don’t even need a cloth)
Good cutting speed and precision; you won’t get burned fingers while using it.
Batteries last for years without needing recharging. Just remember to turn the power off when you’re done using it.
You can cut through thick metal easily and quickly, even when it’s slightly rusted or dirty.
Battery-low indicator tells you when to recharge.
Very easy to change the blade (no more than 5 minutes)
It’s small enough to fit into your toolbox, so you can take it with you anywhere.
Great gift for Father’s Day, birthdays, or Christmas!
Can’t be used by just anyone. The screwdriver needs to be handled with care in order to avoid accidents. For example, never hand it over to a child or let an unsupervised teenager use it.
Expensive batteries and blades can be a bit costly though you’ll save money in the long run because you won’t have to go out and buy a new one every few months.
Can’t be used for other things, such as cutting wood, pounding nails, or opening bottles.
In a few rare cases, the screwdriver can overheat and cause burns if you try to use it after only 5 minutes of recharging. (see FAQ)
Why You Need A Power Screwdriver In Your Life
Most people don’t realize just how many screws there are in their lives! You might have noticed those annoying little things holding your phone, TV remote, glasses, keys, and even your car together. No doubt about it, screws are everywhere and in everything!
If you’re tired of spending hours and hours trying to take something apart just so you can replace a broken part, then a power screwdriver is just what the DIY doctor ordered! You’ll save time and money with this awesome tool, not to mention your sanity. You can cut through metal, plastic, and wood like a hot knife through butter! It’s great for electricians, carpenters, handymen, chefs, mechanics, locksmiths, plumbers, and anyone else who needs to take something apart every once in awhile.
How Does It Work?
It’s really quite simple. You just twist the handle counterclockwise to drive the screw and clockwise to undo it. That’s it! Some models also have an integrated LED light that automatically comes on whenever the power is on, which can come in handy when working in poorly lit areas.
How Much Power Does It Use?
All of the models that we carry run off of standard DC power from rechargeable batteries or an AC adapter. You can even buy a solar panel that will automatically charge the batteries whenever there’s sunlight, which is great for people who spend a lot of time outdoors.
How Loud Is It?
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being a common hairdryer and 10 being a gunshot, most models average around a 3. Most people can tolerate the noise, though it may become irritating when in use for extended periods of time. It can be significantly loudened if needed by using a special attachment that increases the volume.
How Well Can You See What You’re Doing?
Most models have an integrated LED light located above the handle. This flashlight-like beam projects light onto what you’re working on and makes it easier to see what you’re doing. It can be shifted from a narrow beam to a wide beam, or shut off altogether when not needed.
What Kind Of Warranty Does It Have?
All of our power screwdriver products come with a minimum 1-year warranty. Some models have a 30-day refund policy while others have a 60-day refund policy. These terms are clearly stated on each product page.
How Do You Use It?
It’s easier than you think! All you have to do is pick it up and turn it on.
Are There Any Special Skills Required?
You might need to apply a little pressure when using the tool. Most people are able to figure it out after reading the instructions and watching a quick demo video online. If all else fails, there are online tutorials that can be easily found with a quick Google search.
