Comment:
I own multiple Milwaukee Tools, especially corded and cordless screwdrivers. I bought this one about a year ago for small jobs around the house. After using it a couple of times, I put my other three drills in storage. I rarely use anything but this. I've used it to install cabinets, hang drywall, mount pictures, furniture repair, minor HVAC work, and countless other projects.<br /><br />It is not as powerful as my big 18V or hammer drill, but it only weighs a fraction of the others. The battery last forever and charges quickly. I keep it in my desk drawer so it is always in reach. I love this thing so much I bought a second one to keep at one of my rentals for quick repair jobs. Also purchased one as a gift for a friend. Not as powerful as some of the others, but not meant to be. It is an awesome driver for small to medium jobs. One of the best driver's on the market.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Use this one all the time and I love it! Comes in a nice bag with an extra battery and charger. Also bought the bit kit from Milwaukee for driving screws and the nut drivers.

Comment:
I'm a fire alarm tech and I bought this tool primarily for testing duct detectors and hanging alarm panels. After reading the reviews I really didn't find the batteries to run out of power quickly. It is a bit slow but I'm used to using a 18 v Dewalt. I'm looking at getting some of the other M12 tools, like the impact and hammer drill. I can honestly say I nothing but pleased so far.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
