Default Right angle drill

I have been thinking about replacing my newer Milwaukee hole hawg for a few months. I have been thinking this because it has grabbed a few hidden nails afew times and even though I avoided injury I am concerned that one of these times my luck will run out. I always use it anticipating i may get a nail so i brace it. I have been deciding between the Dewalt that is identical to the hole hawg but with a clutch or the regular right angle by Dewalt. The reason I prefer Dewalt over Milwaukee is that I have had good luck with Dewalt and over the past few months bad luck with milwaukee. When I had an issue with a Dewalt cordless drill they replaced it no questions asked even though it was passed warrantee. Milwaukee more or less said go way way and buy another when my hole hawg died with a 1 inch speed bore bit. Just wondering what fellow plumbers use to help with my decision. I learned on the right angle not the hole hawg.

Milwaukee super hawg ... Best right angle drill. More power than dewalt.

I use the timber wolf, the Milwaukee is more powerful. I feel the Milwaukee is too much liability for me. I've seen too many helpers yanked off ladders and slapped in the face by them. I don't need a helper breaking part of his person and filing a workman's comp claim when it could be avoided with a adequate yet less powerful drill.

My main gripe is there is no clutch with the old style hole hawg that's why I like the timber Wolf more but I have not tride the new style super hawg that looks just like the timber Wolf I also like dewalt vrs angle drill that is shaped like the Milwaukee hole hawg

The Hole Hawg is a beast and I ran one for years, however it is an ass kicker if it gets away. I have been tossed off my share of ladders and whacked in the jaw, however I borrowed a buddies dewalt stud and joist drill with the clutch and what a world of difference, after 4 knee surgeries the last thing I enjoy is being tossed from a ladder. The power difference was negligible had no problem running a 4-5/8" self feed bit through 3 stacked 2x6 for 4" stack the clutch engages quickly with no wrist snap. I believe the smaller version similar to the hole hawg has the clutch as well. The next job I get where I truly need to run one I will just pick up a dewalt
