Nothing, I mean nothing can compare to a Milwaukee Hole Hawg for making holes in floor joists, or wall studs for running pipe or conduit. The right amount of torque, the right angle combined with the short body let it fit just about anywhere. Use a Milwaukee Switchblade self drilling bit and BAM you're good to go. I love my Hawg. Should have bought the case though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrMachine Just what I needed
If your going to drill a lot of holes for electrical & plumbing this is just what you need. Has all the torque you can handel without a clutch. Have respect for the power and use both hands or it will twist you into a pretzel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Commercial1 Nothing does the job of a HAWG
Built for purpose, the Milwaukee Hole HAWG has the power and compact design to make the task of fishing between studs less of a challenge than it would appear. The two speed gearbox and long side grip keep all of the power under control while the carry handle and light weight (for the power) make it easy to make a full day. If you're in the business then you either own one or need to purchase one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by M Newer isn't better
Had a older Hole Hawg for years and abused it. I mean really abused it. I use it to spin a heavy cable up to 200' long. Finally fried it, new brushes wouldn't help so I bought a new one. Subtle changes, but the biggest is they use a new chuck from Jacobs. IT WON'T HOLD THE BIT. Used my channel locks on on the chuck key but constantly slipped and threw the adapter I had in place. Took it back and for now I'm using a cheap big box drill that works fine. What a shame.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Plumb Be careful!
Let me start by saying I am a plumber and I need to drill big holes for PVC. This drill is a power house! no doubt about that. I will not use this drill for holes with a self feed bit that are over 2 1/8'' though. It doesn't have any clutch to slow down the drill so if it binds up on a knot or a nail, it WILL send you flying. For everything smaller, I love it. For larger holes I use the Milwaukee Super Hawg. This is an ideal drill for electricians

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John the Mad guy Why are they made in [*]
MilwaukeeWhat have you done to this great tool. I have owned several 2 speed hole hawgs for 35 years and have always had them a good long time and actually wore them out. I bought another one 3 weeks ago and was surprised it did not have the power of my others (Last one was bought in 2005) It was not drilling as expected from all my previous tools and then when I looked at it on the bottom of the equipment tag it says MADE IN [*]. Shame on you Milwaukee. I must say that I will never buy another made in [*]Milwaukee product again. I should have known when it does not list a country of origin. I Buy from Companies that keep people employed here in the USA. If I wanted MADE IN [*]Junk I would have bought one for less than half the money.
