Summary: This wonderful Hole Hawg arrived in the allotted time that was stated. Over and above that I love this piece of equipment! It has plenty of power and hasn't bogged down once. Even when two of us were pushing on it! This comes highly recommended by me and by the friend whose project we worked on. He was amazed too. (Hang on when you pull that trigger!
Excerpt: We are professional Parade Float Designers/Builders. We use the Hole Hawg to turn the crank on 40 foot 5th wheel trailers landing gear. Beats the heck out of doing it by hand. We diconnect the truck from the trailer and then we have to raise the trailer up an additional 14" (approx) to be able to load & unload a 37 foot parade float. We do this about 30 to 40 times a year. The Hole Hawg's high torque and slow RPM is the answer.
Summary: i love these drills because of the power that they have, you cant disrespect this tool or as you can read in some other reviews it will set you straight. the only issue i have with this particular model is that you dont get the (better I think) steel case for it, instead you get a jumbo plastic one that will only hold a few of your bits at best, forget about storing ur larger than 2" self-feeds in it, or you will have to cut out some of the plastic that makes the case...
Summary: I have been building my own house for the past four months. I have sub contracted some of the trades but electrical I did myself. An electrician friend of mine helped me lay things out and got me started. He also gave me some great advice when he told me to buy a hole hawg. Equipped with a ship auger bit, you can drill out an entire wall in the time it would take you to drill one stud with a 3/8" drill and a spade bit. This drill is very heavy and obviously well made.
Summary: Tremendous piece of machinery, I love it!!! I had my first one for 10 years, it didn't break someone wanted it more than I did I guess. After losing my first one I went searching and started to research all the 1/2 drills I could put my hands on, after trying several friends and fellow contractors drills I am right back at the Hole Hawg.
Summary: I vaguely remember using those new fangled pistol grip drills for something, along with first some spade bits, then some auger bits. I got tired of waiting for batteries to recharge, so I got some selfeed bits, and then drills started breaking and chucks started wobbling. I picked up a hole hawg for a song. I looked like it had been drug behind a truck and then used in the yard for a while. The handles were missing, the cord was shot, but it ran.
