I've had Milwaukee's forever, since they were built and assembled in Germany. Still do. Unfortunately my German made Milwaukee Drill started smoking but still runs. I just use it for small jobs. But this Hammer drill is awesome. I was a little concern since there manufacturing them over seas but man, you can feel the Heavy Duty feel, it's robust. This thing is awesome. I got mine in mid 2014 for $99. They went up 10 - 30 bucks, depends where but I'm going to get me another one after Christmas. Hopefully it'll come down to $99. If not, I'm still going for it! Great tool, especially for the $$$
Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

No, I do not recommend this product.
I purchased this drill in a cambo with an impact. The impact works great, the drill is a different story. When I first got it the light on the drill was on constantly. I sent it in and they repaired it at no charge. Later I was drilling 3" holes for plumbing and after 4 holes it started to burn up, so I stoped useing it and let it cool down. When I went to use it again it had lost all power an instantly overheated. I thought no problem it's covered under this amazing Milwaukee warantee. I sent it to Milwaukee and after two weeks they called me and told me it's not covered due to "excessive load." They wanted $94.00 to repair it, a new one is only $119.00. I find it strange that Milwaukee brags about how much more torque and power this drill has over other brands and yet I'm stuck with a burned up drill. I have a Dewalt and a Ridgid that I've put through the same use and they still work just fine, I've had them for years. This is the last Milwaukee product I'll ever buy.
Cons: Not Durable

Have used milwaukee for many years. They have been tough, reliable, and trouble free. Battery life is excellent and they charge quickly.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I was very impressed with the outside built quality but soon i noticed that the chuck wobbles and the motor/brushes area gets hot with minimal use. Drill works and i can tell it has great power but i just don't like how fast it gets hot and the wobble chuck it should not happen! My friend has the same drill and he told me the same thing.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight
Cons: gets hot with minimal use!, chuck wabbles
