This drill is a must have to any tradesman that wants to drill holes in wood or metal. The drill fits into tight areas that other drills just cant fit into. Unequaled in power, I have yet to find a drill that matches or beats it. Milwaukee has owned this category for at least 6 years. I do not think they will lose this spot anytime soon.
The drill sells for about $400-500 dollars with a case, and the bits sell for around $50 bucks a piece. It is not cheap. It is well worth every penny though. My last Hawg lasted nearly 7 years and it drilled 1000’s of holes, been dropped from the tops of ladders and got totally submerged in water and was still kicking. The only reason I bought a new one was that it was starting to lose its power. I had changed the brushes, but it began to stall on me, when the larger bits were in use. No biggie though it paid itself off many times over.
So check out both videos. The first is the unpacking. The second is a quick video of this beast in action.
