Default Milwaukee Drill and Clam Plate Auger Setup

Last year I waited too long to switch to a cordless drill setup, all of the Clam plates were sold out. Still unavailable, one site I looked at said "available in October". Looks like they are going to be popular again and anyone looking to make the switch would probably want to keep checking before the season starts. But, good news is that the Milwaukee 2703-22 Brushless drill kit, which no one had for less than $280 last winter, can be bought on ebay now for $235. Just ordered mine. This is the big one, with 1,200 in-lbs peak torque and 2 5 amp hour batteries.

Not the same thing. The first link was a 700 in-lbs torque instead of 1200 and no batteries or charger. Second link was a drywall screw gun.

Yeah I guess I should of looked closer, I just looked at the Milwaukee stuff that the guy I bought from. The one I bought has 1200 torque and 2 5ha batteries. Looking around $235 is about what they are going for now.
Did you check about the Clam plate? I've seen them on Craigslist a couple of times.

Looked around every place I checked is out of them. I want to buy new, don't want to take a chance on one from Craigslist to save a few bucks.

I'm using a rigid drill with four amp hour batteries. and also elected to just go with the drill adapter rather than the full clam plate.course I'm not using it in the mountains there I still use the gas auger but down here seems to work just fine.

yeah, saw the price and figured you would wait! Can't believe this is the only one out there on the market right now!

I wouldn't be surprised if they sell out again this year and you won't be able to get the 2703-22 drill for less than $280, just like last year. I haven't seen one work yet but from what everyone is saying it's the coming thing. It's a lot for a drill, but we use a lot of Milwaukee cordless tools at work and those things last forever!
