          Great AMT tool, lightweight
          By far my #1 power tool as an A&P. I’ll use this over my impact and drill any day. The quick release chuck is great. With drill bits have the quick connects these days, my drill rarely gets used. Something to mention, compared to the standard non-fuel m12 drill, this m12 screwdriver is extremely lightlight. Another great reason to use it!

            The Only One Star I Have Ever Given
            I am disappointed with the Cordless Rotary Tool. This is surprising because most of my Milwaukee products are excellent. Unfortunately, I have experienced two Milwaukee product failures this year after only a few uses. Anyways, On the third use, it froze and made a high-pitched noise. I discovered the front bearing had seized and melted part of the plastic case. I suggest considering alternatives. Lastly, only give this tool as a gift to people you don't like.

              M12 hex screwdriver
              Very nice hex screwdriver, well balanced in hand. Full gage on side to see battery life, kit came with 2-1.5 batteries, charger, bit, and bag so great price.

              I’ve built a huge barns with this little guy
              Bought a 2nd just because I depend on it so heavily, can’t have it going down on me with no replacement. Great deal with the 2 batteries.

              Perfect size and plenty of torque!
              Our shop has needed such a convenient slower and high torque driver like this for years. We absolutely can't be without it. Thanks Milwaukee!

              Another must-have from Milwaukee
              Over the holidays I bought a less expensive cordless screwdriver (from a company with the initials B&D), but upon its arrival and trying it out felt like a toy with only a single speed and very little torque for driving screws into wood. I decided to send it back and spend more on something I would and could use for many years. Since I already had Milwaukee M12 tools and batteries it made much more sense. I am really impressed by this screwdriver. It is more compact than the M12 drill I have and nice to have a dedicated tool to use for screws so my drill is always ready for drilling. The screwdriver kit comes with 2-1.5ah M12 batteries, M12 charger, phillips head bit, and soft case. The screwdriver has a built in LED fuel gauge so you know how much battery is left. The screwdriver is variable speed between 0-500 rpm with a peak torque rating of 175 in-lbs. The adjustable clutch ring has 8 settings ranging from small screws into soft wood to large screws into hard wood. While it's not the Fuel line of tools it's still a great addition to my tool cabinet.
