    Ok, handing in my man card right now....why does it have to be brushless? I have the Dewalt DCD985, brushed version of the 995. No good? 20 volt, 5ah batteries, but brushed. I have the Eskimo auger, could do this really cheap if the 985 would work. Is it strictly battery life or am I risking damage to the drill?

    Brushless drills take take less power to turn and don’t overheat as easy. Will it wreck your drill that all depends on how many holes you want to drill.

    I think k-drill recommended Milwaukee brand as they said it was the only one with the all metal gear housing AND a 5 yr warranty.
    And longer lasting battery in colder conditions.

    You might want to see if the Outfitters in Minot could match the price. Since the store is around your area. Just a thought!

    I saw it on the Mills website, but by the time you add shipping and taxes, it brings the total close to 260$.
    Outfitters in Minot does not have the 8" in stock and have not clue when they will get more in.

    On black Friday-cyber Monday Acme tools had 20% off any one item on website. Could have had 8" for $200 + free shipping, i almost pulled the trigger but don't really need another auger. I saw them at the end of last season a few places for $200 as well.

    www.glensoutdoors.com in Grand Rapids, Mn has them for $229 if you are headed east for the holidays. That store is a must visit anytime we are headed to Duluth to visit the father in law.

    Just and update on the clam adapter plate. Love it! Can't imagine opening old holes without it ever again. That drill puts out some torque and when things catch, it's nice to have the plate to hold on to.

    After reading some of these threads and testimony from friends, I made the purchase of the Milwaukee/kdrill/clam plate combo. Only have used it once but man is it slick! Drilled 15 holes in 17 inches of ice and still had half a charge left. Just FYI Milwaukee has a promotion right now where you get a free battery with purchase of a drill. Good deal since batteries are over 100 bucks. I won't be missing gas fumes and heavy augers, haha.
