Ayuh,.... My monster Milwaukee right-angle hole hawg has 3/4" pipe threaded holes in it for the extra handle(s),.....
Screwin' longer lengths of pipe into 'em will give ya the leverage to hang onto it,.....
'course, that'll also turn it into a 2 or 3 man operation,.....

I suggest you start with a smaller diameter bit and use a slower speed. Also pull the bit frequently to clear chips as others here have suggested.

Drag is from surface contact area. A hole saw has constant contact with both the inner side and the outside. Take a brand new bi-metal hole saw and cut a hole in 3/4 plywood or a DF 2x4 and look at the burn marks on the side of the hole saw. A TCT cutter with its large teeth has not side wall contact inside or outside while the material is being cut, so the drill only needs to provide power to have the teeth cut the material.
Same deal with an auger bit that was designed for wood timbers and low speeds as compared to modern spiral type bit that has only the cutting edges touching the material and plenty of space to remove the cuttings and keep them from adding resistance. This is important and it is why when cutting concrete with a core drill bit a stream of water is added to wash away the cuttings so the drill bit does not bind.

Unfortunately people insist on using the same drill bits and hole cutters that their grandfathers used and small wonder that they have problems with cordless drills or with engineered materials.
