A real work horse of a combi drill. I have only had 1 issue in 7 years. The trigger switch broke with in 2 years of purchase, I returned it to my local agent and within 3 days my drill was back fully repair and had a couple of other miner repairs done that I had no idea needed doing. Top marks for service Milwaukee. This drill has never missed a beat since and has put in 1000's of screws since.

Had mine now for well over a year. Very good, powerful drill. Occasionally the chuck seems to get a bit stuck though. Hopefully a squirt of wd40 will sort it out.

Fantastic drill to use with plenty of power on all settings. Even for use when drilling masonry this packs a punch. Stops if the drill bit catches preventing an hand injury also

I mean you get what you pay for with power tools and Milwaukee are a little more expensive than some other brands but the build quality is top notch especially if you pay the little extra for the fuel version which this is. I want my tools to last these will! I've had mine for a while now just got a second one for the workshop that impressed by this thing! Probably will get a few more for some of the other lads.

You have to be kidding!! There are 3 premium brands on the market and I could not believe how far ahead of the pack this drill is. Always thought that the price could not justify buying one however it is so superior, there is every chance that over time, I will migrate 100% to Milwaukee.

Best drill available on the market, extreme amounts of power and feels almost indestructible. I always use it with 5ah battery's and find they last for hours with constant use.

Had this drill for a while now and simply cannot fault it. As said the chuck can have a mind of its own but if you keep it lubricated then it doesn’t give much trouble. Very light to use although this doesn’t compromise the power, very powerful for its size and a lot more robust than its competitors around the same price, battery power is good too especially when using 5.0a m18 batteries

Chuck is a massive issue, getting locked and having to use grips is a pain. When in use though it has a mass amount of power. On low speed 38mm wood bit fly’s through.

Replaced like for like after being stolen, I liked this drill that much. Managed to get the combi pack with impact driver too at a special price from merchants. Keeps going and going, 5ah batteries charge in 45mins. Only issue is chuck is extremely sticky, used on hammer drilled a few holes for plugs in concrete block, had to get my grips out to undo chuck to get bit out. If problem persists may send back as has extended 3 year warranty and its only about 3 months old. Other than that, highly recommend.

Great drill, really powerful for it's weight, was scared I was going to wreck a solid oak door while drilling out for the latch the first time I used it! I use a 2amp battery most of the time for small work to save on weight but up it to the 5amp when needed. Small niggle developing with the trigger but otherwise love it.

After always being a dewalt man I have recently taken the plunge and gone over to the red side. It feels quality, has all the power you could need and with 5ah batteries lasts for an age. I was also super impressed with how quickly the batteries charge up. If truth be told I find the one key function a bit of a gimmick but I guess it. Pups be useful to someone doing more accurate work. I would highly recommend this and I will be expanding my range of Milwaukee tools.
