Excellent find they don't make them much better than Milwaukee, with the portable drill stand they become even more useful.
For some reason it will not let me send a message says I need five more characters, here they are Donald duck, mickey mouse, snow white, daisy duck, and Spiderman.
Was running one of those once with a 18" long, 1 1/4" electricians auger, three steps up the ladder. Hit a nail plate on the hidden far side. Wound me up, sucked me off the ladder with my hand on the trigger pinned against a stud. When the carpenters tired of the view one of them finally unplugged the drill. Drill was fine, me, not so fine. Gotta respect 'em!
those are the models where you want to make sure the ground plug is intact, I personally hate hole hawgs by Milwaukee for drilling with auger bits, which is why I used a bunch of cheap 3/4 spade bits and a faster vsr drill to drill out studs when I run nmc or cat5 cable , the holes come out cleaner too. I agree you got to have respect for those things, but I rather use my trusty skilsaw with the guard pinned up all day then drill with one of those. I seen to many guys get twisted on the hidden nails, especially here in CA where they shear panel so many walls now a days and nails are practically unavoidable.
They are intimidating Charley, but useful even if you only need it once. I have core drills to use with this one. My son-in-law loves it. He used it today to cut a 6 inch hole thru 10 inches of concrete with Blue Stone in it. He wouldn't say ho long it took, but I doubt it took too long as I let him use a new unused Core Drill. I'll bet the diamond core drill ate it right up. Blue Stone is tough stuff.
I have a real powerful Porter Cable industrial quality 1/2" drill I bought back before they went into cheap stuff. It is geared down to 850 RPM. I was drilling 3/4" holes in big bronze castings when making a full size 18th. C. repro fire engine. The first hole I drilled
grabbed the bronze and it's a good thing I had quick reflexes!! After that,I quit being too hasty,and ground the flutes go the bit vertical for about 1/32". Then,it did not grab the bronze. I still have that drill today. It is pretty much a normal sized drill but with a side handle.
