With any twin pack of tools it's important to identify what makes it a worthwhile investment of your cash, what key features and benefits does they possess that set them apart from the competition.

In the case of the M12SET2A, one key benefit is the battery platform, Milwaukee's legendary REDLITHIUM-ION™.

The advantages of REDLITHIUM-ION™ are numerous:

  • 2x more runtime
  • 20% more power, meaning this compact drill driver is punching significantly above its weight
  • 2x more run time per charge
  • REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence system delivers the most advanced digital overload protection for tool and battery and uniquely enhances the tool performance under load
  • individual battery cell monitoring optimises tool run time and ensures long term pack durability

The kit includes two 12V batteries on this platform; a 2Ah in the traditional form-factor you'd expect from the lesser-powered 10.8v batteries, and a beefier 4Ah pack.

Watch our unboxing of the Milwaukee M12SETA video on Toolstop TV here.

Both batteries slide into the base of the tools, helping to keep the overall form factor of both compact, which is exactly the point with these tools; small, light but powerful.

Milwaukee's C12C charger is included in the tough carry case and runs the following spec:

  • Temperature protection electronics optimises the charger rate in extreme temperatures to extend battery life
  • Encapsulated circuit board protects the electronics from dust,moisture and impact
  • Progressive charge indication: battery LED's light up incrementally to give feedback on current charge level of battery pack
  • REDLITHIUM-ION™ 3.0 Ah / 4.0 Ah battery packs recharge in 60 min / 80 min or less
  • REDLITHIUM-ION™ 1.5 Ah / 2.0 Ah battery packs recharge in 30 min / 40 min or less

Let's look at what else is in that carry case.

Along with the 2 batteries and the charger you'll find the M12 CDD drill driver. And right out of the box, as soon as you get it in your hands, you know you're holding a tough and capable bit of cordless kit.

Slap in either of the batteries (and bear in mind it's compatible with any of Milwaukee's M12 batteries), and the you'll have 44Nm of torque in your hand via the 18 torque positions, plus screw driver.

The construction of the M12 CDD is something you'd expect to see in a much bigger drill, from the full metal housing, the first 13mm chuck in a drill of this class, and the brightest LED work light you've ever seen.

The power comes from Milwaukee's POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, so you know you've got 10x  longer motor life, 2x more power and 2x longer run time per charged battery than any brushed drill driver.

Rubberised grip, low vibration and a compact size all add to the feeling of great ergonomics from the C12 MT. The variable speed dial allows you to cycle through 5000 to 20,000rpm, and the 1.5° left/right oscillation movement allows quick completion of professional applications into materials such as metal, wood and plastic.

Like the bundled M12 CDD, the multi-tool will take either of the supplied 12V batteries, but also accepts any of Milwaukee's M12 packs.

The tool holder accepts most of the accessories on the market, such as the excellent range from Smart, but the kit includes a nice wee starter pack, including cutting blades and sanding pads, so that out of the box you're ready to work.
