Customer Reviews

8 Amp 1/2 in. Magnum Drill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was really disappointed. I ordered 2 of these drills for Christmas presents and when I went to ... I was really disappointed. I ordered 2 of these drills for Christmas presents and when I went to wrap them noticed one box had written DNI all over it. I opened the box, which had been taped shut, to find a used drill, very dirty and I was mortified. I called the store and was told that DNI means Do Not Inventory and was the display drill. They have promised to replace it, I am returning it today. Hope they have one in stock, since time is short and I need it for a Christmas gift, in 11 days. Which is why I ordered it to be picked up at the store, to save me time in shopping! Other than that I think it is a good drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gift This drill was exactly what my daughter need for work. She loved it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from extreme heavy duty drill I purchased this drill for use in a Welding and Fabrication Shop. It received extreme heavy duty use. The drill performed very well. It was the only brand we found that held up under our heavy duty use.This drill should work for anyone if it worked for my fabguys under these difficult work conditions. I am sure you will be satisfied with the performance of this well-designed product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Best 1/2" drill on the market This powerful drill is awesome. Use this tool daily and has not let me down
Date published: 2013-05-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
