Dangerous trigger mechanism

sky blue "data_connexon", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using only Milwaukee products for over 20 years, drills, cut off saws etc...fortunately I've only had one injury so far that took about a year to heal- and it was with this drill. Technically the drill works great, but the trigger mechanism is dangerous. A word of advice...ALWAYS unplug the drill to change bits and secure it away while working as not to bump into it and drill yourself.

but it was great for the tight spaces

MarkJ, Amazon
8 November 2014
  • Summary: I had a similar 0375-1 611B for 7 years. I did not use it a lot, but it was great for the tight spaces, and had plenty of torque. Recently the pinion gear stripped due to a poorly manufactured housing which allowed the motor to move excessively (according to a Milwaukee bulletin issued in 2003!). I bought mine in 2007 for $140, and It is now worthless junk as the you can buy any part for it but that one, which has been discontinued, rendering it useless. This a $2 part.

sweet drill

TheLittleShovelThatCould, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: My final purchase decision was based on stator size. In my experience Milwaukee motors always seem to outperform their amperage rating. Safety: I mounted the "DEWALT DWA2509 Impact Ready Rapid Load Holder" thus I don't care about how easily the trigger squeezes - actually quite pleased by this. I pay attention to what I'm doing. If someone doesn't pay full attention, no amount of safety features and protocols are going to save them.

Not as good as the old design...

Donald Conley, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I've used the Milwaukee Close Quarter Drill for years and when the old one would wear out I'd get a new one. The design of the most recent version of the drill is larger than the old one, which I don' like, and the trigger area is much larger which I find distracting because sometimes when I set it down, it just has to slightly lean against some other tool laying next to it, and it will start running on its own.

Does the job

cd8095Jerry Ganshorn, Amazon

  • Summary: Have to be very careful. While using the key to loosen the chuck it is easy to trigger the switch which powers the drill and can cause injury. I was close enough to the electrical receptacle to pull the plug from the socket.

Dangerous

Russell Hanscom, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Fine as to drilling operations, I got it to replace the previous model when parts were not available for it. The trigger is way too big; it is very difficult to operate the trigger, particularly release it without letting go of the whole thing. I wear a large glove, not with tools, so my hands are normal sized. I find this drill very difficult to use safely. A trigger that only contacts the index finger or has some form of guard would be much better.
