    right, super!

    I know, I just have no experience with the super one. I'm sure it's similar but better. :)

    Hole hawg

    I recall a thread where the super was well preferred because of the clutch brake...

    do a search and you will find a lot of topic coverage on the hole hawg

    I have the Super.

    Since the price difference is negligeble, I went the super route, and they had no standard Hawgs where I bought mine.

    Can't complain on the Super.. it works... super.

    No kicking with this baby. There's picture of someone on the forum (members area, Johnycoho I think) with a NASTY black eye from the HH.

    Very liitle out there compares against these 2 drills (IMHO).

    For that price get both for sure! You'll easily sell them after. They go for that and more used on ebay. When I have a big crew working, I wish I had two to drill with.

    good answer

    right on. I only had one when i started my house, and found second one at an auction that was dirty but worked, got it for $50. Within the week, the cord failed on my good one, so i used the dirty one as the backup. When i got the cord fixed, i just put the new one away and didn't use it again. If you are very far from town at all, it's better to just have a backup for everything, nothing breaks progress faster than having to take a trip to town to get something.
