Best Drill of all time!
I have used these drills (this one in particular) for nearly 25 years. I will NEVER buy another drill for as long as I live, and I probably won't have to because the ones I have from 20 years ago still work fine, just the paint is banged up a bit, but who really cares. Milwaukee drills are simply the best drills made and I've used a bunch of other brands and they are simply garbage compared to the Milwaukee. This was the tool that got me buying Milwaukee brands and have led to me buying ALL Milwaukee tools. Start here with this one - you won't be sorry.

Nearly perfect drill (IMHO)
I've got or used several different drills (battery, right angle, 45 DEG, etc...), and for a good, solid, corded drill, I think this is one of the top-flight drills. Its powerful, very smooth, and easy to control the torque and speed. If you're looking for corded drill, I would put this on the top of your list.

Awesome workhorse of a Drill
We have a very large Scenery shop. I am in charge of tool purchases. I have been using these drills exclusively for 15 years. I have tried many others but none compare to the versatility, durability and dependability of this drill.

They don't get any better than this one!
Though I'm not a professional when it comes to using a tool like this, I AM an avid do-it-yourself kind of guy who demands quality, durability and performance from my tools. This one has never, and likely never will disappoint! I understand that the design is "long in the tooth," so to speak, but when Milwaukee recently considered dropping this model from their line-up, the outcry from professionals was so loud, they quickly reversed themselves, and decided to keep making this unstoppable drill. Truly, this is the "gold standard" against which all others are measured. Use the side handle on heavy jobs to save your wrist, because if the bit binds in the work, the drill is so powerful that you may injure your wrist! If you want the very best that money can buy, a drill that will last a lifetime, and put a smile on your face each and every time you use it, buy this drill. Otherwise, buy another brand, and come to regret your decision.

Be careful
I've had this drill for 30+ years. All I've replaced is the power cord and the brushes that come in the handle. I use it for tough jobs. I don't recommend it for overhead use. I've done that and it got caught and spun me off the ground around the drill until the cord came out and i weigh over 230 lbs. It goes through concrete and this drill does not slow down.

The best drill I have!
This drill successfully did things it wasn't intended to do, like pilot drilling into concrete and countertop masonry slabs. I pull this professional tool out when my 14.4V drill can't handle the load, such as when I had to counterbore 12 holes, 3/4" deep, and 1 1/8" in diameter. The drill was so powerful, that I had to be careful not to push down too hard! The only time that it ever bogged down was when I was drilling 1" holes a foot deep into an African Tulip Tree stump (about 30 inches in diameter). Still, it performed the job very well! The handle attachment provides an awesome balance. It versatile because you can attach it on either side of the tool. I've had this drill for four years, and I expect it to last another 20!

Been using the "Magnum" for 25+ years!! This is my 2nd one, 1st one is getting a little tired now, lacking some torque and gets hot. Maybe time for new armature? BUY IT, you won't be let down!

Best Drill Ever!
This drill is very powerful yet shorter to fit in smaller places. I bought this one as a gift but have owned the same one for at least 10 years. This is the only drill I would ever buy.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
