Can the trigger be depressed slowly to allow fine adjustments of the rpm/speed? Or is it simply a two position low and high trigger?

Answer: 
Yes, but it was defective two times out of three different units. It would go to half speed in variable increments then jump to full speed.

Answer: 
This drill has a true variable trigger. It will barely growl if pressed lightly. It reaches full speed just before the physical limit, so you have the full range of speed available. Unfortunately, it will lock only at full speed.

Answer: 
Probably, but not for long. Loading any brush-type motor to that extent is a recipe for trouble.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful I had a cheaper hammer drill (pro tip, dont allow spouse to buy you tools for xmas!) and when i tried to mix drywall mud it started smoking. So i bought this and it doesnt even break a sweat. Very pleased with this purchase. September 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Owned for over 4 years as a pro Never had an issue. Professional contractor and have mixed thousands of buckets between mud, mortar, several types of concrete, thinset etc. My employees and I have beaten the heck out of it and works same as new. It has out lasted all 5 of my other mixers. All were top brands. I would pay $500 for this one all day long. October 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bad chuck chuck key doesn't tighten chuck comes loose when mixing mortar ! Other than that works fine October 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!! Bought this to replace previous 1/2" drill that burnt up mixing thin-set. This one is every bit as good as advertised. I've only used it to mix thin-set so far, but it does that as well as anything I've ever used. Very happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a powerful 1/2" drill/mixer.
