Answer: 
Yes, it offers reverse with a simple flip of the forward-reverse lever at the top of the inside of the handle just above the speed control paddle. Easy to access with your index finger of your hand gripping the handle.

Answer: 
Yes, depending upon your pressure applied to the power paddle on the handle. Quite a range at that! Great for low controlled drilling as well as high sustained speeds for metal and masonry.

Answer: 
Yes, but you need to have a very light touch on the speed control. It's beefy and cranks out a lot of RPMs at full speed, so you just need some finesse to keep from messing up whatever you're screwing together.

Answer: 
Yes you can, just get a good power bit set, I like the sets that have a magnetic tip insert that will hold screws in place and you can fish out ones you drop. Its also variable speed that helps drilling/driving process.

Answer: 
Hello Frank and thank you for your question.
You asked if you can use this drill as a power screwdriver.
Sure you can.I actually have one (i think its the model before this one) and it works great.The only thing is that it takes some time to get use to the trigger.These drills are fast and sensitive so take it easy on the trigger and you'll be fine.
Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A drill with power to spare For years I'd used a drill with a 4.0 amp motor and never realized the exact reason why some deck screws would not drive in completely. Unfortunately, repeatedly driving and re-driving, oiling the screw, stripping the heads, and applying risky and excessive pressure was the exasperating norm for me. Now, with the Milwaukee 8.0 amp drill, all I should say is "voila!" This powerful, yet easily controllled drill is the solution! Even the unique design of the grip at the top of the housing lends itself to more comfortable operating. There's something to "grab" for two-handed tasks! Plus, Milwaukee's toughness and durability is unquestioned. Time & material savings, ease of use, and absolute satisfaction with pure power and efficient design makes this tool a winner in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good strong drill When i was a kid my Dad got a new Milwaukee drill like this one. I remember using that drill for things that a drill probably shouldn't be used for and it had no problems. That was 25 years ago. I moved from Ohio to Florida a few months ago, and can"t just use my Dads drill anymore so i bought this one. After 25 years the quality hasn't changed much. This drill is just a good drill no bells and whistles to break. I wouldn't be without a good corded drill again. I would recommend a drill like this one even if you have a good cordless drill because it will extend the life of your cordless drill. This drill will handle all of the heavy drilling that will burn up cordless drills and their batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill This drill looks, feels, and functions "quality". Trigger speed control is excellent, drilling torque is super, and handling, while on the heavy side, is nevertheless a pleasure. It's weakest point is use as a driving device, because it is so good as a drill that you will tend to hit the screw too hard and too fast. You have to hold back from pushing on the trigger too hard. I prefer a slow speed, lower torque battery operated driver. However, if you want a great everyday day drill, get this one.
