Summary: The design of the speed selector is an engineering flop. I've sent this drill back for a second round of warranty repairs due to this unit not staying in the selected speed position and causing the motor to spin freely without turning the drill bit.
it's total garbage! You have to look for the older 5380-21 ...

Summary: I drill around 200 holes everyday with the 9-AMP Milwaukee and nothing beats this for a lightweight hammer drill. The Amps don't lie! Go look at the other brands AMPS and see for yourselves. Anyways...
Summary: I give this drill 5 stars because it went through cement block like a hot knife through butter. We were struggling with some smaller drills. But when we received this drill, WOW. It made the job a piece of cake. We would recommend this drill to anyone who has a tough job to do.
Summary: This Milwaukee has done the jobs that I have asked of it, I've had it since Sept. 2011 and it has been a workhorse for two years. I've drilled concrete for anchors, pressure treated mud sills, 6x6 posts, 6x beams, plywood and it has handled all of it like I expected a Milwaukee drill to.
Summary: I bought this drill to bore 40 1 inch diameter holes, 3 inches deep, in medium density pine. I used a 1 inch diameter "paddle" drill bit, which is a flat bit with a sharp point, to drill the holes.
