Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb Tool 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 November 7, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by M18 2603-22 This is an amazing tool. However there are some practical limitations on driving large lag screws. Basically the tool will put out 725 inch pounds intrinsically of torque. However the clutch as many steps, but the largest step is about 90 inch pounds. Thus from 100 inch pounds to 725 inch pounds you have No torque limit with this tool. You need to rely on visual care and estimates of your wrists. It is understandable why they made this choice in the design of the product. A ball index clutch and a high-quality clutch will be very large for over 100 inch pounds much less 725 inch pounds. The only other alternative for them is a current limit on the motor. This of course will be less accurate than the mechanical clutch and additionally this will change minute to minute. As important the inertia of the motor after being seen through the reducing your box will cause over travel and even higher ending jerk torque. But still some torque control should be added in this torque region. It is very easy to twist off the shaft of a 3/8 inch lag bolt with the tool. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner This product does everything I wanted! Battery life has been exceptional for my use, and the power is even more than I expected! December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Five star I've had this tool for about a year now. Reliability, performance, and feel are all excellent. The battery life has been well beyond my expectations and recharging with the included charger is acceptably fast. I can't comment yet on the longevity of the brushless motor, after a year it's still perfect. This tool has about the best keyless chuck I've ever used outside a machine shop and it holds well against the very powerful output. I'm totally pleased and satisfied with all aspects of this unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money Lots of power, drilled through 1/4 inch steel with on problem. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome experience 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! October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! January 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 8, 2014
