Summary: Like most of the Milwaukee products I have owned over the years, this hammer drill does its job well. The guide was a nice little bonus, too. Mine came through made in the Czech Republic, for those of you who like to watch Country of Origin when you buy things. The craftsmanship is very nice.
Summary: I really hate morons who quote commercials but I could not resist! This darn thing flies through concrete. I mean flies. I am not a contractor or professional. And you can break a wrist if not careful due to the extreme power.
Summary: I almost want to say "medium duty" but that implies this is a lightweight, and it toys with Milwaukee's Heavy Duty slogan. For me, however, this falls between the V28 hammer drill that I use for most small tasks and the 5342-21 Rotary Hammer that I use to drill through fieldstone, thus it fits a...
Summary: Milwaukee's 5387-22 is a large, powerful piece of equipment. It was created to puch holes in masonry, but it is so smoth, you could use it for many other jobs. The drill is manufactured in Germany and the quality shows. Another reviewer mentioned the trigger is too sensitive, but mine seems fine.
Summary: It has been my experience with customer reviews that often they are posted too early and do not offer enough detail to be useful. Because of this I have waited for 6 months to post a review. The Milwaukee 5387 hammer drill has been simply awesome.
Summary: Great drill. The hammer drill feature is amazing. It has enough torque to get just about any job done. I would give it 5 stars, but the variable speed trigger is EXTREMELY sensitive. This makes it hard to use as a mixer for drywall, cement, stucco, etc.
Summary: I have installed shower doors for about 9 years and used this bad boy on a jobsite when my Makita hammer drill just wasn't getting the job done. I bought one the next day and have been using it ever since. Drilling concrete is easy drill through 1 1/8" thick granite, thats a chore.
Summary: I recently purchased this Milwaukee hammer drill to replace a similar-sized Bosch that had quit working. Nothing against the Bosch--it did the job and Bosch replaced a broken switch under a warranty that I thought was long since expired--good customer service.
Summary: The Milwaukee 8.5A Hammer Drill is a great tool. It has the power needed for heavy duty drilling in concrete and it, like the entire Milwaukee line of power tools, is the highest quality. If you need tools that can take a beating and survive then I recommend the Milwaukee heavy duty line up.
