I have that Milwaukee driver.  I've had it for at least ten years. I've gone through six batteries and I even replaced the housing when it cracked. It doesn't have enough power to break loose most screws.  The shaft is locked when idle, so you have to twist it to break the screw loose and then power it the rest of the way out. I think I cracked the housing from twisting it too hard a few times. It sits mostly unused since I got my Bosch PS20.  It's a good driver but the Bosch is much better.

Had one of them Milwaukee's too, must have been 20 years ago or long now.
Did they make them that long ago?
Hope you find our website helpful.

Yes they been around for awhile. It has good torque on low setting. it will remove and install wood screws in the face frame of hardwood cabinets. And if you use it like a regular screwdriver its hard to slip the clutch.

I also have this  cordless drill with 4 extra batteries.Love this drill but in weather time i keep a battery in my jacket in the house as the lithium battery don't like the cold.They are fully charge and once they warm up they work like a charm.

I had that driver and had the same problem in cold weather. Used to lay the battery on the dash with the defroster on so it would warm up on my way to the first call.The Dewalt I use now has Lithium batteries but I don't have that problem.

I use an 18v Makita drill, and a 18v makita right angle drill.


  Also a b/d small battery powered screwdriver for tight spots.  Some customers freak out when they see me with a big drill, but that with magnetic tips make jobs go so quick.
