best 18volt angle drill on the market .
It works good but Is not enough power to go cordless
Heavy and tough mother, gets the job done
Works as good as my corded Super Hawg with out the hassle of dragging a power cord around. I work a lot in remote rural areas with no electric service so now I don’t have to drag out my generator. Milwaukee tools are the best and I got a great discount at Home Depot with fast free shipping. I would definitely recommend Milwaukee tools and purchasing them from Home Depot to anyone!
This drill is excellent it works four hours Without any problems it is very powerful, does the job that’s why we need it. this is our third drill that we purchased this time. Batteries only get better every year.
A bit too heavy for everyday use in plumbing ill definitely be buying just the cordless hole hawg also but works awesome!!
Great tool but heavy as it should so this will replace weight lifting at home.I find that high speed works best with hole saws and low with self feed bits and so far I haven’t gotten stuck or twisted a wrist and expect that the clutch will do it’s work if it happens.I drill for plumbing rough in and had done a home so far with this tool.
You’re probably reading reviews to find out if this is as good as the corded hole hawg. The answer is yes. It may even be better. This is the most powerful battery operated tool I have ever used. It definitely holds up to the super hawg reputation. To me the main benefit of a right angle drill is access in tight spaces. Ditching the cord makes that access even better and I think even if power is available, this is a better option.The kit comes with the drill, a handle (please use it, this drill will reverse the rotation of the earth if the bit gets stuck) 2 batteries and a rapid charger. I mostly install cable and drill through floors/floorboards and 2 dozen 3/4″ holes didn’t even knock the battery down one notch. I really like the dual gearbox so you get low speed or high speed both at max torque. The chuck is the real deal and I’m really glad they didn’t go keyless. There is storage on the body for the chuck key, but I’ll still loose it so I got a cord tether. Yes it’s heavy, but it’s not any heavier than it needs to be. This is an instant “can’t be without one” tool
This heavy duty cordless drill leaves no prisoners. I used this to drill holes in the studs for the wiring of my pole barn and attached garage. It just walked through the studs, even double studs without losing a bit of power. I drilled about 50 holes on the first day and used half the battery. I started out pushing the drill through the studs, then borrowed a self feeder and watch out, it pulled it right through super easy. Sure beats pulling a cord around. The chuck is excellent and the key is built into the handle with a quality clip. The tool is awesome and I can see myself using this for electrical and even more so plumbing. Milwaukee built this to last.
Wow! What a powerful drill ! I really like this right angle drill . This drill doesn’t stress in hard jobs. It is a very strong high quality tool, solidly built. It runs as fast as my corded drill and I don’t have to lug around an extension or generator. The brushless motor will last a long time. Having two speeds is great because it gives me more control when drilling or cutting holes. It comes with a high output Red Lithium battery which lasts. Also has a light to help you see what your drilling. Milwaukee makes excellent tools.
Great power, high quality
Great power, high quality
If you’re an electrician or plumber, this drill was made for you and this package has everything you need! Let’s start with the contractor bag. This is a heavy duty, wide mouth canvas carrying bag that can hold the drill, the side handle, both batteries and the rapid charger with no problem. It’s 23” L x 12” W x 12.5” D. There are six side pockets and a carrying strap that fastens diagonally across the bag. It has to be heavy duty because the drill isn’t called “Super Hawg” for nothing. With the battery and handle, this drill weighs just under 15 lbs. When you’re not working, you could use it to do curls to develop your biceps! :-)The drill is extremely powerful! In fact, it drills holes faster than its corded predecessor but is over 30% lighter. It can drill 100 2- 9/16” holes or 150 7/8” holes per charge. In order to drill holes of this size, the drill comes with a ½” keyed chuck and has a built-in storage slot just above the battery for it. There’s a built-in LED for the times when you’re working in a low-light environment. The motor is capable of 0 – 500 RPM in low gear and 0 – 1,550 RPM in high gear. There’s a gear selector switch on the bottom of the drill near the chuck and in addition to a top handle, there’s a side handle that can be used on either side of the drill.In this package, Milwaukee provides two M18, 6.0AH, REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 batteries that provide up to 2.5X more run time and recharges than standard lithium and operate down to 0 degrees F. Each battery has a fuel gauge to display the amount of charge remaining. Also provided is a Rapid Charge charger, capable of charging both M12 and M18 batteries. The drill has a 5-year warranty and the batteries have a 3-year warranty. If you want a drill that can handle just about any job you can throw at it, this is the one to have!
I BOufht this tool specifically to power a man a rather large auger bit so I can do my own digging for trees and postholes. It does the job!! Big time and body saver!
This drill has so much torque. I would guess it has more torque than most other brand’s corded drills. I got the keyed chuck because I didnt want to be locked in to using only the quick change type bits. I was glad too. On the first job I went on with this drill, I forgot to load my regular cordless drill. I needed to drill a 3/8” hole in a metal electrical enclosure. I had the bits and just chucked them up in this right angle drill. Was a little awkward, but it worked. Would not have been possible with the quick lock chuck version. So keep that in mind.
The Milwaukee 1/2″ Right Angle Drill Kit is an excellent product. The Hawg isn’t a lightweight tool though, weighing just under 15 lbs without a battery and measures, 20.5 in length, 7.3 in height, 3.8 in width. Aside from the weight factor it’s a power Hawg made to take on any task. Oh, let’s not forget the very bright LED light at the bottom, below the trigger forward of the control switch, which lets you see your work. This Drill comes with two M18 Redlithium High Output XC6.0 batteries, M18 & M12 rapid charger, side handle, chuck key and a durable contractor bag. The Chuck is cleverly and securely mounted at the bottom just forwarded of the battery compartment. The Super Hawg has two speeds High (0-1550)/Low (0-500). This Hawg can support Steel twist bits, high 5/16″, low 1/2″, Wood bits, Auger bits and Ship Auger bits high/low 1-1/2″, Selfeed bit, high 2-9/16 “, low 4-5/8″, Hole Saw, high 4″ and low 6”. The Control Switch has three positions, Forward, Reverse and Lock. When shifting speeds always make sure the tool is stopped to avoid damaging it. Milwaukee offers a limited 5-year warranty from the original date of purchase against materials and workmanship.
Lots of power and compact
Can’t rate it yet. Had surgery and it will be six weeks before I can play with it. Have a project ready to go but just can’t now.
A cordless version of the Super Hawg Right Angle Drill, this model provides the functionality of the corded version, without being tethered to a source of power. Powered by the ubiquitous M18 Fuel battery (two 6.0 Amp Hour batteries are supplied), this will be a productive addition for those already invested in the M18 Fuel product line. This model (2089-20) is provided with a keyed chuck, and a (metal) clip is provided for on-tool storage. A model is offered (2811-20) which is provided with the Quick-Lok chuck. The supplied battery charger will charge t he M18 Fuel batteries, as well as the M12 batteries, should you have tools using that power source. An extension handle is supplied which can be attached to either side of the drill motor, to counter the reaction force, should the drill bit jam in the work. A carry bag is provided for the drill motor, batteries, charger and extension handle. The brushless motor appears to have the same power/torque as the corded version and does not exhibit the delay common to some brushless tools. A selector is provided to change between speed ranges (0-500 rpm and 0-1550 rpm), depending upon the bit size, type and material being drilled. The tool incorporates a clutch mechanism when in the slow speed (high torque) range to minimize reaction from a jammed bit. While not a lightweight (almost 15 pounds), the tool is well balanced and provided with a comfortable grip on the nose of the tool. Depending upon the drill type used and material being penetrated, the tool is rated up to a maximum of a 6-1/4 inch diameter hole. A five (5) year warranty is provided for the tool while the battery comes with a three (3) year warranty. The tool is “Red Link” capable, if you or your company is employing that system of tool tracking. The tool arrived with the batteries showing “one bar”, and charged to full charge in less than one (1) hour. The tool is reversible (and lockable) by means of the provided control switch, and speed is variable, controlled by the spring loaded trigger. When tested using a 2 – 9/16 inch carbide toothed hole saw, the Super Hawg quickly bored holes through a 2 X 4, including a section with a knot and a section with three (3) nails driven though (see photos). Although the user’s manual makes reference to a “Hammer Drill Mode” on Page 5, no such function appeared to be present, so I will assume that is a typo in the manual. This tool will be a favorite of electricians and plumbers alike, where large holes have to be bored and there is no power source handy for corded tools. The manufacturer claims that 100 2-9/16 inch holes can be bored on one charge. That coupled with the relatively fast recharge time and ease in carrying an extra battery or two, should allow for a full day’s of work.
