I 'heart' my new Metabo 1/2 right angle drill #192409

Not made in China
high torque
can be converted to pistol grip if you get the straight-on drive.

It has a good solid well-built feel in the hands. All the augering I've done so far has been effortless. There's even a slip clutch to reduce the chance of going for a ride on the drill-a-whirl. I like the carbon brushes. Seems like it will help prolong the life.

It's only on it's 2nd day of service. I'll report back how it's doing 6mos from now. BTW it sees medium duty for remodel work. I don't know that it's the best choice for new construction.

It cost more than a larger Milwaukee, but it's only going to be used by me and I take care of my stuff.

Is that the model number on the drill itself?
The only Metabo RAD kit I can find is listed as a model A626.
I see that you can also purchase just their Right Angle Drive attachment to convert many of their standard 1/2" drills and hammerdrills to a right angle drive.

That setup looks similar to the smaller Milwaukee Magnum RAD Hole-shooter.
I think the closest thing I own to that size drill is the old Milwaukee 3107 RAD kit, but it is just way too slow and underpowered for me, so I usually use the larger DeWalt DW124 joist and stud RAD.

I love my hole hawg! Sorry I swear by it. Had it 1992 changed brushes and had it serviced twice. Never a problem. I also go 6' 270lbs. I just let her ripe:)

Choose your customers, don't let them choose you.

It's not easy to find.

Go to the catalog page here-

Look for the PDF for drills (2nd one down)

Open that and it's on page 6.
