Gear
Reduction
Double - Gear systems with double reduction generally provide more torque for a given amperage. They operate more efficiently at lower speeds than single gear systems, which extends the life of the drill.


DURABILITY RATINGS
Gear
Housing
All-Metal - The Milwaukee 0202-20 is manufactured with an all-metal gear housing that protects the transmission and prevents the drill from cracking when dropped onto hard surfaces such as concrete.
Gears All-Metal - The transmission contains all-metal gears that provide superior durability compared to nylon gears found in some drills. Gears spin at high RPMs and are susceptible to material break-down.
Warranty 5-Year - Milwaukee's 5-year limited tool warranty is significantly longer than most drill manufacturers and ranks in the top 30% of drills. Longer warranties can often indicate improved durability with fewer repairs.


CONVENIENCE RATINGS
Weight 4.9 lbs - It is 7% heavier than average and ranks in the bottom 40% of power drills for higher weight. It weighs 0.3 lbs more than the average 4.6 lb corded drill and may increase operator fatigue.  
Length 12 in - Power drill length is a personal preference, but shorter is generally better to help you in close quarters such as under a sink, or drilling in-between studs. Torque is harder to handle if the drill is too short though.  
Spindle
Lock
One-Hand Bit Change - This keyless chuck has auto spindle lock. The drill bit can be changed with only one hand by simply spinning the chuck open to release the bit, and counter-spinning it to tighten.
Belt
Hook
No Belt Hook - There is no provision to hang the drill on your belt and free-up both hands to perform other tasks. You may be able to purchase a separate belt clip that can be attached to the drill.  
Side
Handle
Side Handle Included - Higher torque levels can cause injury if a bit suddenly binds or the drill slips. A side handle is essential to handle more powerful drills and provides additional stability and control.
VSR VSR - Most cordless drills are equipped with variable speed capability that can be controlled with simple trigger pressure. Reverse is usually performed with the push of a side-to-side button.
