Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Little Red Devil Drilled 6 8" holes through a retaining wall using a 7/8 bit before the battery drained. You definitly need two or more batteries if your going to be drilling all day. The chuck head release sleeve tended to get stuck on occasion which prevents the bit from locking. However, this small defect seems to have fixed itself after being used a few times so I will attribute it to newness. The depth rod works, but could use a stronger locking mechanism, three is too much play in my opinion. Bottom line, More powerful than my 18v 7/8 compact Makita rotary and has my corded bulldog collecting dust. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Milwaukee Product! I've had a Bosch Bulldog corded rotary hammer drill for a while and it has been great, but sometimes to drill a few holes it has taken longer to set up than to drill, meaning "taking out the extension cord etc.". This Milwaukee is amazing! I just tested it out and it performed better than my old bosch without all the fuss of a cord! I was a little skeptical, but I'm a believer now! It was easy to add to my M18 fuel collection due to the battery's being interchangeable and all. Cons: A little on the pricey and I wish it was brushless for battery life, but it's pretty good with my XC 4.0 battery pack. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Electricians Savior As an electrician I am always in need of a box chipped in a block wall or need to chip a corner off the end of a wall to wrap EMT/Romex etc. and this thing does it with ease. Drilling is easy and quick. June 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Make pilot holes for t-posts With a 15" long 7/8 bit you can drill a pilot hole in Texas Hill Country limestone big enough to then hammer in a t-post. Light enough to carry anywhere you can carry a t-post and driver. Worth its weight in swear words. February 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the features the tool has I like the anti-vibration handle and the four different settings it has I also like the way it feels when working with the tool not to heavy January 14, 2014
