Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VK Solid Drill, Sound Value
I bought this drill for use on metal projects. Together with a set of Milwaukee bits it drills through mild steel like butter. I'm happy with the overall build quality, sensitivity of trigger for variable speed use, and the high amount of torque at low RPMs. I think it should be a solid drill for the "prosumer". Not too heavy and feels well balanced in the hand. You'll pay a few bucks more and wait for shipping, but I'd recommend it over the comparable Dewalt that's available in store.

My first drill. It works really well So far. Love the speed control. It's easy to use and I'm female, not that that should make a difference!

Just moved into my own place and had a Milwaukee palm sander so stuck with Milwaukee and it has been great! Plenty of power for everything around the house!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by milwaukeeroad A drill with power to spare
For years I'd used a drill with a 4.0 amp motor and never realized the exact reason why some deck screws would not drive in completely. Unfortunately, repeatedly driving and re-driving, oiling the screw, stripping the heads, and applying risky and excessive pressure was the exasperating norm for me. Now, with the Milwaukee 8.0 amp drill, all I should say is "voila!" This powerful, yet easily controllled drill is the solution! Even the unique design of the grip at the top of the housing lends itself to more comfortable operating. There's something to "grab" for two-handed tasks! Plus, Milwaukee's toughness and durability is unquestioned. Time & material savings, ease of use, and absolute satisfaction with pure power and efficient design makes this tool a winner in my book!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Overall good drill
Burned out my old drill trying to drill holds in vehicle frame. This one was suggested at the home center, so I bought it. I first used it for some light duty wood drilling for other projects, and it worked great. Once. Then the chuck started coming apart. And it was very difficult to turn. I had things to get done, so I didn't take the time to return it. Now I have to hold the chuck together to change bits. But otherwise it is a great drill. Best I've owned in the past 40+ years. Plenty of power, easy to modulate speed, comfortable to grip and use.
