Summary: This is an improved version of the Hole-Hawg. This new tool has more power, easier to use, and fits into tight spaces better. I depend on Milwaukee tools for my livelihood and they delivered a great new tool with this one.
Summary: I'm an electrician and have used Milwaukee power tools since 1978. I've watched the line of old hole hawgs do some amazing things in the past, as well as some frightening things (breaking wrists, knocking men off ladders, locked bits twisting the handles and ripping through 2x4's). Up until now I've avoided them like the plague.
Summary: The new "Super Hawg" is what all hole drills should be. As a Southeast Texas homebuilder I put it through it's paces and it has turned some of the dreaded work into pleasure. I shopped all of the hole drills before chosing this one. It costs a little more than the others but it is worth it. I am very impressed with it's high quality construction, power, and comfort. The swiveling trigger handle is a feature all hole drills should have.
Summary: As expected Amazon has done it again. Shipped a quality product in record time. If they were only a client of mine I would again believe in a handshake and a persons word . The Super Hawg is the right choice for those who have gone through other drills. It is faster and more powerful than a Hole Hawg , which I have used much. The Super Hawg will fit in tighter spaces is longer and has a 90 degree rotating handle. If a bored hole is your goal the Super Hawg is the tool.
Summary: I purchased this drill to use for wiring our new house, and I've drilled about 500 holes through studs/joists and it's been terrific! It replaced a Hole Hawg that had been stolen, and I can certainly say that this is a nicer drill. The Hole Hawg worked great, but tended to kick hard on occasion, whereas the added length of this Super Hawg makes it much more manageable due to the added leverage.
Summary: We are a non-profit on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, and we have a diverse collection of inexperienced volunteers that work here short term. Homes are frequently built on 12' piles because of flood elevations, and require many bolts and threaded rods to make connections for wind resistance.
