Product Description

For day in, day out drilling and driving in wood, steel, or plastic, there might not be a better tool than Milwaukee's Magnum hole shooter. The aluminum/magnesium alloy on the gear case cuts down on the tool's weight, and the glass-reinforced nylon handle makes it a bit lighter, too--but let there be no doubts: when it comes to results, this is the same heavy-duty, ridiculously powerful, no-nonsense tool it's always been. The shooter is built with a stacked design--meaning the drill's interior parts stack on top of each other--which makes replacing parts (like a switch) much easier to do as the whole drill doesn't need to be taken apart. The handle is designed so you can hold it two ways--either pistol-grip or with the palm of your hand resting on the top back portion--making the drill an extension of your arm. As a result, you can really get behind it while still easily reaching the trigger with your fingers. And the finger slots add comfort. The shooter's top-quality chuck is a Jacobs (the best). It's a two-handed chuck, which, for the types of applications this drill is built for, is exactly what you want. The carbon brushes are also easy to access and change.

One of our favorite new features on this tool is the long and superflexible Quick-Lok cord. If the cord gets cut or damaged, you simply unplug the damaged cord and replace it with the cord from any other Quick-Lok Milwaukee tool. If you're looking for a serious, long-lasting drill, you can't go wrong here. Milwaukee's hole shooter is a very high-quality tool that will serve you for years and years and years. --Dori Anvinson

Great drill with plenty of power.
Unquestionably Milwaukee makes the best, most durable, and comparably powerful drill motor on the market.

This will likely be the only corded drill you will ever need to buy.

First of all I want to say that I am a around the house handy man and not a pro but I know quality when I see it and I have had a very decent amount of experience with power tools.

I am guilty of owning a Craftsmen 3/8 inch, 1/3 horse power, 3 amp, corded drill "I got it because it was on sale for close to half price,I paid $20 for it.

When ever I tried to use it as a screwdriver with its so called variable speed trigger,it would almost always rotate to fast which would result in it stripping the screw heads.

Most times when I tried to use it for tightening nuts or drilling metal it would stall,so to make a long story short it was under powered and the variable speed control was almost uncontrollable !! Oh well you live and you learn !!!

So it was time for me to get a "high quality drill".

I now wanted a drill that would have plenty of power and have a "very controllable" variable control trigger and most of all I wanted this drill to be able to last me the rest of my life and I wanted it to be the best darn drill money could buy and at a reasonable price,now is that asking for to much ?

So I went on the net and started reading a ton of reviews,I read up on cordless drills first but I was turned off by their overall price along with the "over priced batteries they use",and lets also remember their not the most powerful drills you can buy,they simply cannot supply you with the torque a corded drill can,and when you push a cordless drill it puts a tremendous strain on the battery and in return the same battery that might have held its charge for hours using it for light duty will now lose it's charge in a matter of minutes when you use it for heavy duty use.

These days when the cordless drill seems to have replaced the resevrsing 3/8" corded drill as a standard, a lot of amateurs and even pros may wonder why they need a corded drill. Well, a cordless drill is a wonderfully handy thing, particularly when working on a remote job site, but even the biggest 18 and 22 volt drills are limited in the amount of power they can generate; sometimes you need a really big, honkin' drill. Drilling heavy hardwoods, going through mild steel- these are tasks where a cordless drill starts to bog down or overheat but this 5.5 amp drill just keeps turning.
I was first introduced to the Magnum Hole Shooter by a boatbuilder who called it the single best power tool he owned. Not only was it powerful enough to drill through an oak keel or refasten a few thousand hull screws, it was built uncommonly well. You just can't destroy this drill in ordinary use, and if you do manage to break it or wear out the brushes, it's easily serviced.
Compared to the old 1/2" drills, like my 1950s vintage Thor, this drill is half the size and a quarter the weight. It's not much bigger than a decent 3/8" drill even though it has over half a horsepower. If you're doing serious work in wood or metal and can only own one drill, this should be the one.

Don't be mislead by the gimmicks and styling of other 1/2" drills out there. This beast is all you need for truly heavy duty work like running large hole saws, mixing drywall mud, or just drilling monster holes with big bits! This machine is the standard by which others are judged and has been for years. It is ridiculously overpowered and its durable engineering hasn't changed. It's still the best.

Milwaukee makes a keyless chuck version of this drill, but I do not recommend it. For the types of tasks this drill is designed to handle, you will want no possibility of slippage. The keyed chuck on this drill is as beefy as they get and is up to any task. Milwaukee also makes an 8 amp version of this drill. Such a machine seems like it would almost be dangerous, as this 5 amp version is perfectly capable of wrenching your arm. More amps isn't always better. This drill does not slow down, and would probably blow a circuit before it stalled.

The removable cord is a nice feature, as is the removable and ambidextrous side handle. The only thing this machine lacks off the shelf is a good case, but the genuine Milwaukee steel case is available from various distributors for about $35. A very wise investment, this excellent case will protect your tool for years to come.

If Dirty Harry worked in the trades this would be his gun. I have drilled, screwed, mixed, and sanded with Makita, Bosch, B&D, and Craftsmen (it was a desparate moment). The majority performed well. Makita and Bosch had pretty good power and got the job done. I didn't care for the keyless chuck or the adjustable handle on the Bosch that I used. B&D and Craftsmen struggled with big bits in big wood and usually got hot enough to put them down and leave them alone for a while, (and the bits were sharp).

Which leads to the hole shooter. Which leads to power.

From big buckets of thinset, to drywall mud, plus some augers and lags thrown in for good measure, the hole shooter performed with flying colors. The only time it "gave up" was a delibrate test of my own curiousity. 1/2" x 3" lag, with an 1/8" pilot, into a 4x4. Even the hole shooter needs the right size of pilot. But I should say it broke the socket arbor "fighting the good fight."

The fixed handle (right or left) at 90 degrees of the trigger, provides a tremendous amount of stabilty and control. This is especially handy when mixing mud, or punching through plates when you need to brace it against something. It's nice to be able to focus on the task at hand without having to worry that your support handle isn't going to slip.

Keyed chuck. The only way to secure the monster bits or paddles. Keyless in this arena just don't provide enough bite.

The trigger is great. No one or two finger triggers here. It runs almost the full length of the handle. Again,one less thing to worry about when your picking up your tool and getting down to business. The variable speed is just senstive enough and it's consistent.

Quick lok cord is nice.
