The package clearly indicates these are for wood, metal and plastic, not masonry.

Also, note that they don't have masonry tips.

FYI those are not masonry bits. The set in the YouTube video are different. You will destroy the tip if you try drilling concrete with these. Masonry bits typically have a spade tip to break the material instead of cutting action of these standard twist drill. But i guess for 4$ some of u may not care.
Ideally u want a proper hammer drill and masonry bits if u plan on doing alot of concrete drilling.
Happy drilling :)

Yes, these are not masonry bits, but this is still a great deal for Milwaukee bits!

Milwaukee site says that the set 48-89-4444 is no longer available. KMStools shows reg price $15, on sale for $14. Amazon.ca has $22.87 and made in China. So $4 is a good price.

Who thought a hex shank is a good idea for a drill bit?

You are guaranteed to break your bits. The 'slip' of a round shank is what usually saves a bit from breakage.

Apologies if this question is ignorant but will these bits work with any impact driver or are they compatible only with Milwaukee drivers? I've been thinking about buying an impact driver recently to replace my normal drill on more heavy duty home projects.

These will work fine with any drill and not just Milwaukee's.

It's so that you can also use the bits with 1/4 inch impact drivers that only accept a hex shank. Not ideal for heavy drilling, but useable in more tools.

I personally like using the 1/4 hex shanks because I put a speedload/rapid load 1/4 adapter into my drill chuck. Don't have to loosen and tighten the chuck every time i switch bits.

Haven't broken any hex shank bits yet.
