Needs re-engineered

Kevin Morris, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • 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. A total of twenty holes have been drilled in four weeks since I received it.

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... I've bought around 6 of these, and have had new brushes put in several times on repairs over the years of coarse. (to be expected with high usage) Do not buy the new style version of this model because, it's total garbage! You have to look for the older 5380-21 model...

Got the job done

  • 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: Not much to say other than that it is Milwaukee quality. Heavy built, refurbished appeared to be like new and performs great.

Its a hammer drill

Fargo, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • 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. My only complaint is the trigger and the case. The trigger lock is finicky, its hard to engage and slips out too easily.

  • Summary: Guess this is a good buy. He never said anything about it. Heavy duty 9amp is a lot of power so he is super happy.

Error in User Manual

Languy, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • 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. Initially, as directed by the user manual, I put the drill into what was supposed to be "drill mode" (not "hammer drill mode"). Unfortunately, while I was drilling each and every hole, the paddle drill bit became loose in the chuck.

Failed after 1 year

Me, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Bought the bosch model about 7.8 Amps or so, didn't have enough power to drill 3/4" holes in 2x4's for my electrical business. Returned it, bought this Milwaukee. Has worked well for about 1 year of light use, then we burned it up. I guess, smells like it is burned up. Hit the trigger and nothing happens. Milwaukee has always been indestructible, not this tool. Sending it in for warranty service today. They do provide a free shipping label for you online.
