I was quite concern when I accidently touched it. At first i thought that maybe because I left it on over night. but when I had it on a timer going 2 hrs into operation it got hot. The milwaukee after 6hrs is not even warmed at all for the one I have. But, it's good to know that it's normal for the burkert to get hot and not defective.
