I have 3 in stock at this price near me according to BS. It is something that I kind of need, and would be a really good upgrade from my Dewalt 3/8". I think I have to go at least try to get it, despite the last couple of Lowe's hunts coming up empty at this store.

Does this have a hammer drill function? I don't think so but thought I'd check

It's a mediocre 1/2" drill. Definitely a step down from a Milwaukee, but it's much cheaper too. I smoked the internals running a 2.5" hole saw thru 2" steel pipe. For the price, it's a good deal. Especially for avg homeowner.

Curious what makes you say its a step down from the Milwaukee, it seems either on par or superior to the 850 RPM Magnum (0300-20) to me. Stronger motor, better ergonomics, comes with a hard case. I personally favor the threaded side handles myself vs. the 360 locking - the rotatable locking ones give tons of flexibility but can also just come off when bearing down so kinda a personal preference there. Same warranty.

Obviously the big deal is it's 1/3 the price. To pay 3x more for the Milwaukee and not get a case, that'd piss me off.

Don't forget to look in top stock. My store had 0 on the shelf. BS said 5 in stock. There were 5 stacked on the top with the other top stock Metabo stuff.

The specs don't tell the whole story, unfortunately. It doesn't have a stronger motor, or perhaps the gearing is lesser effective/quality. Maybe the motor is stronger, but doesn't dissipate heat well. Not sure.

Last year I built a swing set. I welded 2 pairs of inverted V legs. Next, I took a hole saw and cut a saddle at the top of each inverted V for the cross beam/pipe to sit on. I used this Metabo drill on one set of legs and smoked the motor despite using a steady supply of cutting oil.

My dad lives next door and has the Milwaukee Magnum 850. I grabbed it out of his basement and proceeded to cut the other saddle with the same hole saw. It bogged down less and did not smoke the motor.

The only use I have for a corded 1/2 drill is hole saws or cutting holes in heavy steel. For anything else, I would use a battery impact or drill. That's why I commented...most people only mess with cords if they really need the extra torque and this one doesn't quite deliver.
