Milwaukee Electric Tools has introduced the Model 2611 hammer drill as part of its M18 line of 18-V Li-ion-powered cordless tools. The 2611 generates 650 in/ lbs of torque and up to 28,000 bpm. At low speed, it runs up to 450 rpm; at high speed, up to 1800 rpm. At 9¼ in. long and weighing only 5.3 lbs, the compact unit is designed to reduce user fatigue and fit easily in tight spaces. The 2611 comes with two Li-ion batteries backed by Milwaukee's five-year, 2000-charge warranty.
