I bought a Milwaukee 1/2" drill 2 years ago. I needed to drill 1 1/2" holes in RR ties for a fence project. This is 2 miles from the buildings so I had to haul my generator also cross country. I was being very careful to drill a little and then back out to get the chips out of the hole. The chuck is held in the drill by an 1/8" set screw. On the second hole the chuck twisted off. Back to town to Ace-50 miles. They do not have a return policy for Milwaukee so they had to send it to the big city for a fix. In the meantime I bought a DeWalt which worked fine and better than a Milwaukee. The Milwaukee will lay in the corner and gather dust until I am gone and my kids can sell it to someone who does not know what he is getting.
