Drill=fast. Winch=slow.

I think you'd be better off with an electric socket wrench. They do make those, both corded and cordless, and having torque instead of speed probably would work better for you.

Running the drill with a high torque load (winching) might burn it out before its time as it overheats, even though a Milwaukee should take a lot of abuse.
