We repair chimneys. To do that we often have to remove the existing flue tile. When we do this is the baby that gets it done. We chuck in steel rods with a chain and steel ball flail on the end and let her rip .It is a tough hard job but this tool handles it like a day at the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ContractPlumber Perfect For Plumbing Contractors
I've been a Plumbing Contractor for over 20 years. I've owned the 1675-1 model for over 15 years and I can attest to it's quality, durability, and longevity. I've abused my Hole Hawg...dropped it from rafters, dropped galvanized and black iron pipe on it, ran over it with my truck, etc....and any other way you could possibly think of abusing a tool on the job site. Never once has it failed to work or have I had to send it in for repairs. It has the power and torque to make short work in drilling holes through studs when roughing in new homes or used for repair and service work. The bottom line is...the Milwaukee Hole Hawg is the ABSOLUTE best and defacto standard drill for the plumbing trade. NO other manufacturer comes REMOTELY close to producing a drill of this caliber. PERIOD!!!

The only drill that stands up to the demand of large hole drilling. I don't think these ones are made as well as they use to be but still has no problem drilling 4" holes through studs.I like this one has the dual speed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by J Gears keep breaking!
I have used hole hawgs for a long time and they had always been a reliable durable tool. I have not been happy lately since the gears keep breaking and have gone through 2 new purchases and sent the newest one in for repair (which is the second repair this year). Not sure if they had cheapened up the parts inside but it is not holding up like in the past.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kegger What a beast
This beast has power to spare. This is a must have if you are doing any amount of overhead work or using large bore hole saws. The trim profile fits between floor joists nicely and the grip style makes it a lot easier to control. Someone i worked with kept tweaking their wrist using a standard high torque drill with a 4 1/2" hole saw and this was just the ticket to stop that from happening.
