Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TxIceMan This beast does it all!!!!
I bought this milwaukee drill to end my 5 hour frustration with a cordless drill. Needless to say, this beast took care of the "5 hour" job in less than 5 minutes. Paid for itself in less than 5 minutes, highly recommended!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jponce good drill so far but....
This drill has a lot of power but like in the one star review on this product my chuck started to come loose on first use with a 3/4 auger when drilling through telephone poles even thought the drill barely even strained. So i tightened the chuck back one the drill removed the chuck set screw cleaned and put it back with blue threadlocker. after waiting the recommended 24 hours for threadlocker to set i then used the largest auger 1 1/4 inch I had one a scrap pole and had no issues so far. if i do i will be posting another review. I recommend tightening chuck and applying blue threadlocker to setscrew, otherwise you will break it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bluesby77 Fell apart in reverse
The chuck screw broke and the drill fell apart when I put it in reverse. Shame that such a beast of a drill is held together with a tiny wimpy little screw. Now it's just a mud mixer- only works in forward- put it in reverse and the chuck unscrews and falls off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by southernsong lots of power
I bought this drill to drill holes into 4x4 posts, had no problems , went right through it like it was butter. Tried using it to drive screws through 2x6s, I could not handle the power, this tool is not ideal for driving screws, there is no clutch settings like the cordless drills so basically i was guessing at the depth of my screws. I tried using it for my 3" holesaw, too powerful for this also, have to watch the kickbacks when using it with a holesaw. This drill is ideal for drilling holes, mixing, or using with a wire brush, but anything else I would go with a cordless. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone that needs a lot of holes to drill, but to use just to drive screws, no.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Constructorman Good, powerful drill. Heavy.
I've owned this drill for a couple years. It is an extremely powerful and heavy drill. Build quality is great. It has a keyed chuck, which obviously isn't as fast as the keyless, but it's stronger. There is no electronic brake, so after you take your finger off the trigger it takes awhile to slow down, unlike my cordless drill which stops immediately. This takes some getting used to.
The 2nd handle can easily be attached or taken off and is really good for 2 handed operations.
This drill isn't really suitable for using in a horizontal position with one hand. It's just way too heavy and long. This is not what it was intended for, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trainman Milwaukee Power at it's best.
I really like this drill. It'll power through anything that I've put it to drilling. I have always considered Milwaukee products to be the "Rolls-Royce" of power tools. This reasonably priced Milwaukee drill is no exception. It's great! I particularly like the keyed chuck. I no longer have the necessary hand strength to use a key less chuck. So this drill's keyed chuck has proved itself to be a godsend to me. The keyed chuck is a must have feature for some of us senior citizens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TSS28 This thing is a monster!
I use one of these drills at work for drilling holes in steel plate. This thing is an arm breaker if you are using a large bit in a heavy drilling application and the bit sticks. The amount of torque this thing makes is scary. Its the first drill I have ever seen that will snap a 1" drill bit without hesitation. I have used lots of drills, but this thing is King. Durability of this drill is also out of this world. I have used it to punch holes through 1' thick plate with 1" or larger bits, and it never quits. I am buyin one of these for home use!
