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 4.7 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Drill, Sound Value I bought this drill for use on metal projects. Together with a set of Milwaukee bits it drills through mild steel like butter. I'm happy with the overall build quality, sensitivity of trigger for variable speed use, and the high amount of torque at low RPMs. I think it should be a solid drill for the "prosumer". Not too heavy and feels well balanced in the hand. You'll pay a few bucks more and wait for shipping, but I'd recommend it over the comparable Dewalt that's available in store. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! My first drill. It works really well So far. Love the speed control. It's easy to use and I'm female, not that that should make a difference! July 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Dill Drill was just as described worked right out of the box .Everyday use handles great in heavy duty projects. June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Starter! Just moved into my own place and had a Milwaukee palm sander so stuck with Milwaukee and it has been great! Plenty of power for everything around the house! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid, reliable drill. Very pleased. It did everything I expected of it, right out of the box. No learning curve. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drill is well built and easy to use. Drill has a lot of power, well balanced, and feels like an extension of my hand. Great product! April 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall good drill Burned out my old drill trying to drill holds in vehicle frame. This one was suggested at the home center, so I bought it. I first used it for some light duty wood drilling for other projects, and it worked great. Once. Then the chuck started coming apart. And it was very difficult to turn. I had things to get done, so I didn't take the time to return it. Now I have to hold the chuck together to change bits. But otherwise it is a great drill. Best I've owned in the past 40+ years. Plenty of power, easy to modulate speed, comfortable to grip and use. June 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great price on the highest speed ⅜ drill on the market Quality and price were excellent. Just wish Milwaukee used a ½ chuck. March 8, 2016
