When the job calls for power, Milwaukee's 1/2-inch drill delivers, with the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. Built to withstand the rigors of even the most demanding user, this drill boasts a rugged, 8.0 amp Milwaukee motor, a heavy-duty keyed clutch, an all-metal gear case and diaphragm, and helical-cut steel gears–heat-treated for maximum durability. Variable-speed control allows the drill to operate smoothly between 0 and 850 rpm, while a 360-degree locking side handle provides added stability and power on high-torque jobs. Ergonomically designed to maximize user comfort while still providing ample power and strength, Milwaukee's 1/2-inch drill features grooved slots, making it easy to run the drill with the hand directly behind the drill's body, while operating the trigger with the pinky and ring fingers. A smart buy for any job site, this drill will also appeal to the home user looking for the top of the line.
