She may be small, but she is fierce.
Awesome little drill. It seems to have the power of the competitors full size drill. In fact, it used bits my other 20 volt drill couldn’t finish. I’m a hardcore diy guy, I use my tools more than most homeowners, but I’m not hammering on them 8 hours a day either. That being said, I think this could hold up to that. It’s now my go-to.

Mighty mouse.
As with all of the Milwaukee products the M12 hammer drill exceeds any competitive brands capabilities. I have used it with a 4" hole saw cutting through a 2x4 with no problem. It size for quick anchor setting is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone considering a hammer drill or just as a drill. This is an asset to any handy man or pro.

I do sprinkler work and have to drive Sammy’s into concrete sometimes. This makes it easy work. Small lightweight and powerful. Really impressed with it.

    Surprisingly powerful
    Surprisingly powerful 1/2" hammer drill. I initially purchased this drill for smaller tasks but use it now for 90% of all my jobs. Great for tapcons and anchors in concrete. I use it for drilling 1-1/4" holes with power bore bits for installing faucets in kitchen countertops, and pretty much everything else in-between. Well worth the money spent and runs for a decent amount of time on the XC 3.0 battery

    It's amazing drill
    For home work is excellent, has enough strength to do drilling work in concrete, iron and even better when you use the drill bits of the same brand, easy, practical, compact, light for the hand, and powerful tool, the batteries are sufficient, I liked the box is stored more secure, more practical to carry it.

      Plenty of torque yet compact and handy. Nice little drill. Passed the 5000 rivet test with flying colors.

        Small, lightweight, packs a big punch!
        This hammer drill is excellent for job site use whether you’re drilling out knockouts for conduit in electrical boxes, or auguring out wood studs. The safety mechanism kicks in when the drill gets too hot so that you can not overheat and overwork the drill to the point of it not working. An all around good drill with a good amount of torque. I’m on my second one because I like the M12 lineup so much!

          Terrible for aviation
          Using Dewalt all my life I figured I would give milwaukee a try purchasing their brushless impact/hammer drill combo kit with the free 3/8 cordless ratchet because the ratchets are super convenient and nice to have, but that's about where it ends. The drill and impact are terrible. They both have very slow ramp up speeds. The impact is very hesitant when trying to remove panel screws from an aircraft which are only torqued to around 50 to 90in lbs. You have to start slow to be sure you aren't going to strip the screw and time after time the motor would hit some kind torque limit at slow speed and the impact just stops. You have to release the trigger to start it again. As for the drill, most drills you can set the clutch setting and it will click and stop turning at a certain torque when installing screws and you are able to get the screws to the range of torque you need them. This drill has does not do that at all. Even set at 2 I can still over torque the screw, not to mention the torque difference depending on if you have the speed set to 1 or 2. There is significantly less torque with it set to speed 2 but yet again there is no limiter like on other drills. If you get the drill up to full speed on 1 or 2 it also changes the torque of which it outputs. Overall these are awful. I have used previous milwaukee drills and impacts and they work well but not these. I am returning the combo kit and going to a different brand however I am very upset that I ha e to return the ratchet. This is by far one of the best cordless ratchets I have used. I can't say enough good things about them. I am a little angry that I have to return the ratchet with the kit and buy a whole new one at such an extreme price.

            I would say it out preforms old 12v set
            Facility maintenance and commercial business . I bought my 12v 1/2” drill/ hammer with 1/4” impact with free oscillating tool but this didn’t have led light which would’ve been nice though I was getting newer version but maybe that’s how bundle deals work it still out preformed old set Especially because they don’t offer a hammer drill and they’re set
