M18 Wont Cut 8" Hole

Recommended Posts

My m18 brushless and clam plate with 8" laser hand auger bit will only cut about 1 and 1/2 holes through 12 inches of ice then it stops and I have to wait a bit beflre it will drill again. Then it stops againmmany times.

Anyone else hve the same issues? I also tried a new 8" Mora with not much better results.

Thanks guys. I just went and looked at my drill. It is not the fuel. Looks like a trip to Home Depot is in my future for an upgrade to the fuel.

 

Merry Christmas all

Fuel covers a lot of Milwaukee drills. The one you may want is the 2804-20, 1200 IP, brushless. Tool only $150, with 5ah battery + charger around $250. Rigid also has the 1300 IP octane for about same price range comes with lifetime warranty I've seen good reports on the octane.

Hammer drill?    Is that the thing with an auger?  Or a regular drill?   

Hammer drill is both a basic drill or drill with hammer (32,000 BPM) selected options. Drill Tool only. Augers, K, Nills, pistol separate purchase. Milwaukee, DeWalt, Rigid, Ryobi all offer 750 IP & greater drills. 750 minimum for augers.

Yeah, don't need the hammer function for the auger.

 

Personally, since I don't drill a lot of masonry the hammer function isn't worth it to me and I would buy just the drill/driver version.  The regular drill is a bit smaller and weighs a bit less, but it's marginal.

So for the auger application it is just used as a high torque drill?  

Correct run on drill only, also set drill on speed 1 slowest speed. Most of the above 1000 inch pound drills come with hammer option.

Not sure why this site does not find my logged in profile so I'll try again

Like said before just use it in the high torque drill setting.

 

the reason people get the hammer drill version is due to the gear and stuff being built a touch heavier in the hammer drill version.

There is also a drill plate on the market with a 2 to 1 reduction that allows you to use a drill with less power.  I've been using the 2 to 1 reduction plate with a 18 volt Metabo drill and a 7 inch Mora hand auger for two seasons now, and it works just fine.

 

I think the drill plate I have is called an Ice Kicker.

Thanks @papadarv, for the information above.  I went looking for the 2804-20 tonight.  I found a 2804-22 which is supposedly the new replacement model of the -20.  At least that was according to the helpful staff at the store.

@Wanderer The 2804-20 is the Tool Only $149 and 2804-22 is the kit with 4ah bat, charger & hard  case $299. There are 3 and 4 respectively at Home Depot Forest Lake. A bit far from Little Falls, but if your in the neighborhood stop by look for Darv in Hardware & Tools. I'm only there 20 - 25 hours a week on a random 8 to 5 schedule.

I would certainly stop in and see ya @papadarv but I picked up that unit locally.  

 

Something changed at the store where I got mine.  The shelf was empty where the units are typically stocked (had a tag stating “this one recommended for K drill”).  The staff checked stock because he thought he saw a new one had come in the back.  Sure enough, one had.  But the SKU was different than the ones they sold out of and it wouldn’t scan into their inventory.  He commented the product had changed.

 

Mine is the tool, charger and (2) 5Ah batts in the case.  Maybe the batts were the change?

Saw some great deals on the Milwaukee 2703-22 drill/driver with 2 batteries online this week while I was shopping.  I think they are trying to dump inventory for the newer 2803 model.

I tried looking at those closer to see the difference; just out of curiosity since I’m past the point deciding.  Didn’t see anything jumping out at me from the 2700’s to the 2800’s.  The 03 is drill/driver only and the 04 is hammer drill/driver.

 

And as papadarv pointed out, -20 is tool only with -22 being the whole ball of wax.

 

I’m happy with my choice even though a 2700 could be $20-30 cheaper.

Oh, I saw the 2703 with two 5ah batteries and a hard case for $179 at acme tool, so that's a $100 deal not $20-30.

 

As far as I could tell, the 2803 was a inch shorter and a few ounces lighter.

 

Milwaukee does have a promo where you get a third battery for free with a 2803 right now though, which is about $100.   So it's a bit of six of one / half dozen of the other.

 

I went with the 2803-22 for $279 with a free battery, thinking I would probably end up getting a third battery anyway.

Nice score. 👍  I don’t get down to that area of town much anymore.

 

My wins:

Wanted the hammer drill option.

Like having the “new” model for whatever reason.

Kept my money in my town.

Had a nice gift card that helped the cause.

🙂

 

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I hope to mine.

You should look into the free battery rebate.

Yah, I will.  It wasn’t mentioned at the store.  We were all just happy they could sell it to me! 😄

Where did you buy it?  

 

It was done automatically when I ordered online, but you can fill out a form at Milwaukee's HSOforum.

    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
    • Just buy whatever truck you want and get started adding after market accessories, probably cheaper than buying all that stuff standard on a niche truck that will likely be really over priced due to it being a specialty item.  Most of that list could probably be doable fairly easily.  Personally I don't think half of that list is kind of pointless though.  If your non-camo truck with reflective chrome bumpers is giving you away to the animals you might want to get a bit further away from your truck when you're hunting.  If you're really struggling with loose ammo rolling all around the floor of your truck try leaving it in the box when its not in your gun. Key less entry might be nice but if you lose your key in the woods it will just give you a place to sit while you wait for someone to give you a ride home. Can't you already turn your lights/high beams off when your truck is running?
    • Most of that would be do-able by a small outfit (not 4 wheel steering).   Business opportunity for someone
    • Also got my bonus tag. Both tags bought and ready to rock in a couple months.  
    • Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag.  Quick and easy.
    • Haven’t spotted any yet myself but I know it won’t be long before that changes. But I could use a ride on the moped! Gotta wait yet till the sweepers clear all the sand on the roads first. 
    • Saw a Red crotchrocket day before the last big storm. 🤪
    • saw the first bike Tuesday afternoon go by the house....  39* no way for me............  and it was a HD....
    • I do have FIXD and that is where I got the code from.  I have cleared one code in the past, but this one came back. It is a 2001.
