Does great when I use large hole saw bits with it.
A bit too heavy for everyday use in plumbing ill definitely be buying just the cordless hole hawg also but works awesome!!
I use to drill 2-9/16” holes in studs as well as use to cut with 5-1/2” hole saw. Worked great, have used corded hole hawg for 30 years.
After 6 months of owning this tool ive got to say its a beast. I usually rough in 24 units in a day from hole sizes ranging from 1 3/8 – 6 inch. It goes through about 40 amp hours in total. A 12.0 can get me through about 2 units. It does get warm and that was during the summer heat at 100 degrees plus. The Milwaukee Super Hawg Gen 2 did exactly what it was supposed to do.
Haven’t fully tested it yet, but used with hole saws through walls, and it performed flawlessly.
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.
Things are great, very powerful tool with 2 speeds.
From boring a hole in a double plate to mixing a 5-gallon pail of joint compound it works better than the corded drill I retired.
Lots of power and compact
A beast!!! One powerful tool that bores thru a 2×4 board fast on the 3 tests I ran with it. Though heavy, and requiring two hands, it is well designed, and as ergonomic a tool as you could expect given it’s size and weight.. You will get some kickback on occasion, so be prepared. Read the manual. It will give you tips on best ways to handle kickback. It comes with a removable side handle. The handle isn’t clearly mentioned on the box, but it’s there. Love the fact it has a brushless motor for longer life. I haven’t used it near enough to test battery life, but there doesn’t seem to be any slow down after 20-25 minutes of use. The two included batteries are big at 6.0 Ah, so they should last a while before needing to be replaced. The charger will work with these 18 volt batteries as well as the smaller M12 12 volt batteries. A nice contractor bag is included.
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.
To big for convenient use. Definitely not as much torque as a plug in version. A gimmick I could have live without.
This drill can last all day… When it comes to holes smaller than 3 inches. After three inches you may get about 30 holes at most. However when your running water pipe and you have to drill out 15 units in a day its really nice to slap on a 9.0 battery not have to worry about running extension cords everywhere you go.
Works like a dream. Battery last a long time. Also the torq is impressive.
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.
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
Unbelievable power and not having to pull a cord makes this a must have. Especially on service calls when you only need a few holes or one large hole drilled. Rarely pulling a cord off the truck anymore since changing to the M18 tools.
10/10 Very SkookumFirst year plumbing apprnetice roughing in residential jobs, on a 6.0 she lasts all day and i have never found a hole too big or too deep that it can’t chooch right through.
I am a general contractor in the electrical field and my guys couldn’t do their jobs as efficiently with other brands of cordless tools.
