Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice set!!! This review is for the Milwaukee 8-Piece Big Hawg Hole Cutter Plumber's Kit, Model # 49-56-9080. This kit includes cutters in 2-1/8”, 2-9/16”, 3-5/8”, and 4-5/8” sizes. In addition there is an arbor, 3 3/8” pilot bits, a hex wrench, and a diamond file, all in a nice plastic case (see photo below). The case has a sliding lock on it to help keep it closed. One note on the case – the sizes of the bits are not engraved or printed by the cups when they are in the case; the size is imprinted on the cups themselves but the imprints are not visible when the cups are in the case. I used a black marker to label the case so that it’s easy to know what size hole the cup will make. (Not that it would be easy to grab the wrong cup, but that if someone needs a three inch hole to run conduit you don’t want to grab a 3 5/8” cup. Marking the case lets me know that I need to look elsewhere in my toolbox for the 3” cup. See photos. YMMV.) I’m a retired I.T. tech but still do a little work for a couple of local non-profits, and friends and family. Recently I was involved in a major office build out, running data cable through walls, floor joists, installing conduit, etc. After that experience I purchased a new set of hole saws for my own use to replace some burned out bits. When I then got an opportunity to check out the Milwaukee Big Hawg Kit I accepted immediately. The kit covers sizes that I didn’t already have. The Big Hawg cups have only 3 hardened steel teeth (unlike my “regular” hole saw cups); the teeth can be resharpened and the kit comes with a diamond file just for that purpose. The Big Hawg cups are rated for up to 600 holes before resharpening is required and as a home DIY it will likely be a long time before I need to do that chore. Still, it’s nice that the file is included. These are “rough cut” cutters – see the attached photo. Without a “sacrificial backing board” I find that the Big Hawg cups splinter the work on the exit side of the work. However since the purpose is to knock large holes in lumber very quickly (such as floor joists for running conduit or piping) splintering isn’t a factor. In my tests these things knock out holes very quickly indeed. I’m using them in a Milwaukee M18 hammer drill (hammering turned off, of course). It does take some effort – after all, these are pretty big bits. I think using something like a Milwaukee M18 Hole Hawg 1/2 in. right angle drill might require a bit less effort. It really depends, I suppose, on the angle that you’re working. Construction of these tools is top notch – they are solid and no wobbling is evident when mounted in the drill chuck. Do be careful when handling – the three teeth are sharp! The pilot bits look like spade bits and do a nice job of piloting the Big Hawg cups into the work. They can be changed by using the included hex wrench, which has its own spot in the case. Plugs are easy to get out of the cups, there’s plenty of space to get a screwdriver, etc. for prying if the plug gets caught in the cup. I think they’re a nice addition to my expanding drill bit collection – handy to have when working on refinishing a basement or working in a barn or other outbuilding. Even though these aren’t tools that I’ll use every day I have to rate them at five stars. They work as advertised, look as if they will last for years (for a home DIY – a professional tradesman would obviously work them harder than I ever will), and have a competitive price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! These hole saws are the fastest drilling and the toughest hole saws i have ever used. Hardwood, knots, nails, and screws are no match. Couldn't imagine working without them after having a set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoking fast If you have a job with many large holes to drill this is the tool for you. Connected to a Hole Hawg you will complete the job in 2/3 less time. I'm amazed how fast and effortlessly the Big Hawg cuts.
