Milwaukee impact wrench, Grinder deal

Comments

    Have a Milwaukee set here, impact gun and drill. They are decent quality.

    I’d say I’ve charged the batteries maybe 10 times total and the damn charger gave up. €30 for a replacement on way from Amazon.de

    Won it on a FB draw for €5, if I’d spent my own cash I’d be furious.

    Maybe I'm wrong,but I'd say it could be bought locally for less money from authorised retailers.

    Looking to buy one this year anyhow,so might find out.

    2.5 ft pull bar here for past ten years. 20 euro.....

    id prefer the battery grease gun.

    Battery grinder is handy but I’d still run a lead anytime it’s possible.

    The Milwaukee battery drill wouldn’t run 8mm holes in stone walls but my corded hitachi 650w did it with ease.

    Have a Milwaukee grinder here, found it a great job, the circular saw less so (motor burnt out).

    If the grease gun is any good it's not a bad deal.

    Is the Milwaukee an sds drill? If it is it should have no bother going through stone with an 8mm

    No not an sds, but the corded one isn’t ads either amd does the job no bother.

    My mobile tyre van fella has the Milwaukee impact gun, there is fair poke in it but it's a heavy lump of a yoke. I wouldnt like to be using one all day!
    The last day he was out he had the 1/2" airgun out his Milwaukee had packed in. He wasn't impressed as it was fresh and big money.

    You will have to use the old type grease cartridges, screw in cartridges won't work.

    The DEWALT DCK269P2 would be a comparable kit, excluding the grease gun.

    Does anyone know if you have a VAT number do you have to pay VAT if buying something from Northern Ireland.

    You have to give the supplier your vat no. They check on revenue website and see if your eligible or not. You pay the x vat price then. Some ask for a revenue headed letter with your name and address.

    I have the M18 grease gun with 2 years, awesome bit of kit.

    Its an m12 grease gun you get with this deal, I don't think the m18 batteries will work.

    Me too bought it start of this year. Great yoke.

    I've the grinder & drill too. No problem drilling 8mm holes in walls. Done a good few now. There's a few models of drills so might depend on that I suppose. Battery grinder is so handy around a farm.

    Addresspal, but you have to pay UK VAT and import duty.

    If you have a relation in Northern Ireland you can get them to buy it for you.

    Offer doesn't seem to be exclusive to Eurocarparts, so you could try your local Milwaukee or if you've a VAT number, go up North.

    You have to wait 2 weeks for grease gun,
