- Superior product for ice augar Review by Daivid Weimer
Price Value Quality
This is undoubtedly the very best drill for an ice auger. Drilled 31 holes at Houghton Lake last year and ice averaged 22 inches thick. Still had 2 bars left on battery. Three of my friends bought them and give it a total thumbs up. Used 4 other brands in the past and they were a piece of junk compared to this. It beats my gas auger by far as no stinky smell and no weight and fits perfectly into my 40 inch sled. If they come out with a better one please let me know.

- Great drill; Marginal charger Review by Matt
Quality Price Value
The drill is powerful and compact. Not sure why Milwaukee still doesn't put a bit holder somewhere on their drills, but they did add an LED work-light that comes on when you touch the trigger. The new battery system works great on the drill; much easier to remove the batteries than the older system on my last drill (10 yr old Milwaukee 18V, as well). But the charger is a bit fickle with how you position the battery on it. It's a very loose fit and you have to adjust it side to side until the contacts are just right or the charger reports you have a bad battery (even when brand new). Hopefully, the charge lasts long enough that the charger doesn't become a long term nuisance. All-and-all an improvement over my other 10 year old Milwaukee 18V drill.
