Excerpt: Milwaukee 1680 1/2" Super Hawg is a beast of a tool. The 13amp motor is powerful for the 2 speeds. Good torque at lower rpm. The handle for trigger should have a rougher texture for gripping. But one could improvise by wearing rubber work gloves and or tapping elastic rubber around the trigger handle grip. Really needs a semi-cirular handle that goes around the upper body for better control rather than just the screw in handle that comes with the "Hawg".
Pros: Ergonomic Design, Heavy Duty 13amp Motor, Powerful
Excerpt: The first one was dead on arrival but cpo was great, they sent out a replacement asap and paid for the return shipping of the defective unit. The drill seems great. I haven't drilled any holes with it yet but it is a proven drill, as a professional Carpenter I can tell you that every plumber has this drill, I even see electricians with them (although for the most part elections still prefer the hole hawgs, smaller holes needed and hole hawg is a lighter drill) I don't...
Excerpt: heavy duty drill that is capable of drilling anything with ease.This drill is perfect for plumbers and electricians.The only draw back is the wieght of the tool which it more than makes up for in performance
Excerpt: First use: Planting ten bushes in hard-packed soil How I did it: Coupled the Super Hawg to a Tanaka 3" x 24" auger; drilled a bunch of holes in the ground; flooded with water; let it sit overnight; easy shoveling the next day As for the one con (bit slips), perhaps it's unreasonable to expect *any* standard chuck (such as the Jacobs found on the Super Hawg) to effectively grasp a two-foot-long auger digging through such a resistant medium.
Pros: Clutch, Easy To Use, Ergonomic Design, Powerful
Excerpt: I am an ISA Certified Arborist, and purchased this tool to run a 13/16"x48' fully fluted ship-auger bit, with a 48' extension, in order to drill holes for through-bracing support systems in large trees. In the course of the day, drilling holes up to 7 feet in length, this tool never worked up a sweat. The clutch in the low rpm setting was a major selling point.
Pros: Clutch In Low Rpm Setting, Easy To Use, No Bit Slippage, Powerful
Excerpt: I use it to rough-in for plumbing. I drill holes up to 4 5/8" which with the older style hole hawg would catch a knot and throw you into the wall. This drill has a clutch so you don't have to worry about anymore.
Excerpt: Great for drilling in tight bays. Awesome power, nice to hold. Wish it was easier to take off the handle at the head to get into even tighter spaces. Wish it was variable speed. But, still works better than anything else I've used, bar none. Worth every penny. Haven't needed the bail bar once yet! But I only drill holes with it, no hole-saw or super-wide bits.
Pros: Comfortable Grip, Low Profile Head, Very strong
