Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Older Ned Lousy Chuck
After 14 months (not every day use) the chuck locks to the point where I am unable to remove the drill bit without hitting the chuck with something. Very frustrating as all the other tools in the fuel range work well. Am back to using my old Hitachi.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronald Sauve One Powerful, Long Running Drill!
I use this every day. I live in Maine, and it can get cold here. I was very disappointed with several V28 batteries in the past, as they would not hold a charge, and could not be used in cold weather. So I was cautious about this drill's batteries. But I am very pleased with this drill! I keep it in the truck, and it works, cold weather or not. On another note, to me, run time is king, and I'm finding that this drill's run time seems to go on forever! Yes!!! : ) Belt hook is only a couple dollars; I ordered it online! And finally, although the case has no room for a drill index, I just cut an opening in it to fit them, so it works just fine!

This tool is great for the price! I have been using it for drilling through hard woods like oak. It drills without a single snag, the driving mode is great for driving screws in, i drove 3" wood screws through oak plywood into boards for a project ive been working on, and it performed flawlessly. Especially when using the nice milwaukee bits. Steady, consistant power without bouncing around in the screw and without stripping the bit. I also used it for putting up a fence and i screwed in approximately 1200 screws through the planks into 4x4s and only used about 1/2 the battery. It does not bog down as it gets low on juice either. Highly recommend this drill

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Cordless drill ice auger
I'm an ice fisherman and drilling holes in the ice manually was getting a bit too much. There have been a number of articles recommending adapting the Milwaukee ½ cordless drill with 4Ah ion batteries to a standard ice auger.....mine is a 6" Strike Master, Mora. I've had it out on the ice twice and both times, I've drilled 40+ 6" holes, 10 to 14" ice, at 20F .....On one battery! My only complaint was the T handle. The groove in the frame appeared to have crack and a piece of it fell off. Consequently, the T handle kept falling off. I returned it to the store and they replaced it. I have not read any review with this problem. I'm hoping, this was a random defect and not a design defect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ronnie High expectations, very disappointed
Bought this drill at a major box store chain during a Milwaukee promotion. I was hesitant to spend top dollar on new technology but got sucked in by the hype. The drill came with a third battery, T-shirt, utility knife, drill bits, and hex head bits. I fully charged the battries, took the drill out only to find no response when i pulled the trigger. Tried other two batteries with same outcome. Very disappointed, I returned the drill and got a Compact Dewalt 20v Hammer drill. I'll wait until the second generation brushless drills come out. Hopefully they can work out the bugs.

This is the drill that my husband has been wanting for a very long time. I was finally able to get it for him and he loves it! To top it off, it shipped to our house earlier than expected, which is a wonderful surprise!
