Milwaukee M18 Kit Fuel Super Hawg With Quick-Lok 2711

There’s the Hawg, then there’s the Milwaukee Super Hawg.  You want power and performance, the Super Hawg is your tool.  Ask anyone what right angle drill they use for driving, cutting and dicing up wood and they will tell you the Milwaukee Hole Hawg.  That’s because it’s been around forever, it performs, it’s strong, it delivers results and let’s face it, it just jams through anything.  Year after year we hear companies tell us how they want to cut the cord and let battery technology take over.  Let me tell you that this new Super Hawg has accomplished that goal....
