I bought this for sanding my wood turnings, it did not last long with all the dust, had to change the bearings, when I called support to complain they asked what I was using this Drill for & I told them SANDING!, the support person told me right away that this is a drill, not a sander... he is right, I should not be complaining about problems caused by doing something it's not designed for.

I know the tool should be unplugged prior to changing bits but it's very hard to hold the tool and use the chuck key without pressing the trigger. The red plastic guard at the top of the trigger catches on the chuck key, hopefully before mangling your fingers.

I had purchased and older Milwaukee close quarters drill and abused the living daylight out of it, it died after 14 years of abuse (I have the receipt to prove it). This drill seems similar in quality to me however the switch to go forward and reverse is very difficult to change, I feel like I almost have to break the trigger to go from forward or reverse. In addition the switch is on the trigger so I caught myself several times starting the drill when trying to switch to reverse. I also agree with some of the folks the cord should come straight out the bottom of the tool.

Agree about the lack of power and awkward reverse button. Power chord is in the way all the time. I have used two of these, and both tore themselves apart fairly quickly; used mostly for drilling 5/8" to 3/4" spud bits in studs, for wiring.

This drill is great for wood working. I use this drill for screwing in pocket screws. It does not have enough power for larger lag screws. For larger drill use the Super Hawg.

I bought this tool to drill 1/2" holes though about 5" of wood for hex bolts in stud replacements. The tools barely powers thorugh them with a nice bit. I found it surprisingly light duty for a Milwaukee - expecting a heavier duty product. It felt cheaper and less quality. What really ticked me off is the cord coming at 45 deg out back. In tight quarters, between studs, it kept interfering with movement and catching on conduits. The cord should emerge straight down, or even tilted towards the front.
