Milwaukee M18 FUEL Hole Hawg – The Next Generation

Milwaukee announced the M18 FUEL Hole Hawg, which is said to be the next generation of right-angle drills. With a new design, the Hole Hawg drill is the lightest in the industry and delivers the fastest rough-ins. The cordless drill from Milwaukee continues to deliver unrivaled performance for professions in all industries.

Although the M18 FUEL Hole Hawg resembles the previous model, the upgraded drill comes with more power and high speed for different applications. As a REDLINK PLUS Electronic, the drill increases power under load and increases capacity without bogging down. In order to increase productivity and decrease downtime, the Hole Hawg drills up to 7/8″ in SPF lumber on just a single charge with the power of a REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT XC 6.0 battery.

Additionally, the cordless Hole Hawg 2808-22 model features a QUIK-LOK Chuck that offers quick and efficient one-handed bit changes. The quick changes benefit applications that utilize 7/16″ flat and groove shank bits that are commonly on augers, self-feed bits, and hole saws.

“Professional trades have relied on right angle drills from Milwaukee since the introduction of the original HOLE HAWG in the 1970s. When we launched our cordless HOLE HAWG in 2014, it was the first cordless solution of its kind. As groundbreaking as that tool was, our leadership in cordless technology has progressed to a point that we can now deliver an even more powerful solution for users which offers increased capability for a full corded replacement. With this incredible power, our newest M18 FUEL™ HOLE HAWG provides electricians and professional tradesmen with all the benefits of a completely cordless rough-in process without sacrificing overall size and weight.”
