Speed
Settings
2 Settings 0-450 / 0-1,800 RPM - Fitted with both Low and High speed settings that come standard on most cordless drills. Speed selection is an important feature to match drilling or driving RPM to each unique job.
Max
Speed
1800 RPM - This Milwaukee cordless drill is 20% faster than average and ranks in the top 20% of 28V-36V-class drills for maximum RPM. It can run at speeds that achieve 300 RPM more than the average 1500 RPM drill in its class.
Clutch 24 Settings - The Milwaukee 0726-22 has an above average number of clutch settings that provide a wide range of protection for almost any job. The clutch acts like a brake and helps prevent stripping screws.
Power
Ratio
112 P/W - The Milwaukee 0726-22 has an 20% higher than average power-to-weight ratio and ranks in the top 20% of efficiently designed 28V-36V-class drills. The P/W ratio is 18 higher than the 94 average ratio for this class drill.
Hammer 0-9000 / 0-27,000 IPM - Designed with an average hammer impact rate that should provide standard performance for a mid-range hammer drill. The average hammer drill can deliver about 27000 impacts per minute (IPM).  


DURABILITY RATINGS
Gear
Case
All-Metal - The Milwaukee 0726-22 transmission has all-metal gears that provide superior durability compared to nylon gears found in many drills. Gears spin at high RPMs and are susceptible to material break-down.
Chuck All-Metal - Drills are commonly dropped-off ladders onto concrete and the chuck often bears the brunt of the impact. An all-metal chuck with metal sleeve helps prevent damage and costly repairs.
Motor No Brush Access - The entire drill usually has to be taken apart in order to access the motor brushes. Motor brushes wear-out and must be replaced periodically, but repair costs can sometimes be prohibitive.  
Warranty 5-Year - Milwaukee's 5-year limited tool warranty is significantly longer than most cordless drill manufacturers and ranks in the top 30% of cordless drills. Longer warranties can often indicate improved durability with fewer repairs.


BATTERY RATINGS
Type Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) 48-11-2830 - Newer technology rechargeable battery that provides higher capacity and longer run-time with less weight, but are more expensive than the older NiCd and NiMH batteries.
Capacity 3 Ah - This Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery has a 43% higher than average run-time with an amp hour (Ah) rating that ranks in the top 20% of 28V-36V-class drills. It has 0.9 Ah more capacity than the average 2.1 Ah battery in this class.
Charge
Time
60 min 48-59-2819 Charger - Battery charge-time is about average for this class battery. If you only have one battery, or you go through multiple batteries on the job-site, charge-time is an important consideration.  
Fuel
Gauge
Battery Fuel Gauge - Equipped with an on-board battery charge indicator that keeps you aware of the remaining battery life. Great feature that prevents frustration - no more dead battery surprises.
Backup 2 Batteries Included - It's important to have a second back-up battery for the Milwaukee 0726-22 that's charged and ready to go. Makes it easy to swap-out batteries during the job with minimal down-time.


CONVENIENCE RATINGS
Weight 6.7 lbs Tool Plus Battery - It weighs about average and would be considered standard weight when compared to other 28V-36V-class drills. The average cordless drill in this voltage class weighs about 6.6 lbs.  
Length 9-1/4 in - Cordless 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 single-sleeve 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.
LED
Light
No LED Light - The Milwaukee 0726-22 does not have an integrated LED light that Illuminates your work area. This feature is extremely useful, but is obviously not essential if you have secondary lighting available.  
Belt
Hook
Integrated Belt Hook - Includes a belt hook or clip that allows you to temporarily hang the drill from your belt or a ladder while you're performing other job tasks. Helps prevent dropped and damaged drills.
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.
Bubble
Level
No Bubble Level - This feature is only available on a few drills and can be helpful in situations where precision holes are critical for alignment. Most projects can be performed with just visual sighting.  
Keyless Keyless Chuck - Nearly all cordless drills are now equipped with keyless chucks that can be tightened with both hands (double-sleeve) or just one hand (single-sleeve) without the use of a key.
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.
