Milwaukee m18fuel v m28

Does anybody know how the new Milwaukee 18 volt brushless angle drills work compared to the older m28? I cannot find any torque ratings for the m18 (v 1080 inch /lbs for the m28)nor can local dealer or online support. The m28 is heavier and batteries expensive and hard to find, so would prefer the m18 if it is comparable in power. Need something that will get me up my 50' mast. Thanks

Re: Milwaukee m18fuel v m28

I have a m18 angle drill, nice for drilling tight spots, not enough oomph to get you up the mast...has a 3/8 chuck. I just stalled I mine today drilling out to 5/16 from 1/4 in 3/8 thick aluminum.

Found ya a m28 at a reasonable price...
