Customer Questions & Answers

Recommendation for Close Quarter Stud Drilling...

The old 0375 Close Quarters drill was wonderful for drilling studs with spade bits. It had enough muscle to power through the wood, but not so much that you risked hurting yourself if the bit jammed. Clearly that drill wasn't really designed for years of 1" spade bit abuse, but it was so good at it! From comments here, it looks like the new Close Quarters drill has less power. That might be a strategic decision to keep people (like me) from abusing the drill, since it no longer has enough power for this task. Can Milwaukee recommend an alternative tool? The Hole Hawg obviously works, but it is heavy and often doesn't fit where we need to drill. Perhaps Milwaukee would consider designing a Close Quarters drill with super heavy duty gearing, and power like the 0375 in the future...
Asked by: Greg
I bought this drill to replace a ten year old 0375 drill, and my impression is that the new tool has more torque under heavy load than the old tool. I could stall my old drill, but just tried stalling this new tool, and was not able to. Drilling through very old and dry doubled 2x4's with a 1" spade bit, I was able to slow down the tool, but it kept steadily cutting through both studs. Didn't seem to faze the tool at all. If I tried this with my old 0375, I would have stalled and overheated the tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for as advertised Agree with Mikey et al. Bought to drill holes in studs for wiring. Tool advertised as "heavy duty". Wouldn't even drill 1/2" hole without stalling. To compare, I drilled 1" hole (auger bit) with my 1/2" chuck 18V cordless relatively easily. Couldn't believe a corded product would be so wimpy. Never did enough to run into the "cord positioning" problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite there yet 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this drill to replace a much older Milwaukee/Sioux close quarter drill that I needed ... I purchased this drill to replace a much older Milwaukee/Sioux close quarter drill that I needed to send in for new bearings after 10 years of regular use. I am a wood turner, and use the drill to sand bowls while they are on the wood lathe. This new version of the drill has been an excellent replacement for the old model; same quality Milwaukee construction, strong motor and gearing, improved shrouding of the chuck, and better air flow through the motor. I expect this new tool to last as long as its predecessor. The only criticism I have of this new design is that the grip is a little bit large for me (I have X-Large hands), and it is sometimes tiring to hold the tool for long periods of time. Excellent co-molded grip, just a little large for how I use this tool. I bought my original close quarter drill for drilling joists and studs for installing electrical wiring and plumbing. This new machine would be even better than the old one for this function.
