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.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
    • No but he knows how to PM me next time! 😉
