    I use this driver in my work as a commercial furniture installer. It is great for assembly of desks. Gets into tight spaces when attaching drawers, light is also very nice when underneath desks, etc. Bit changer is awesome and super easy to change with one hand. I paired with a shockwave bit/drill kit which makes it very versatile. It is nice not having to screw around with a standard chuck. Battery life is great, torque clutch also maintains setting very well as battery wears down. Was a great deal for [$] (Tool, 2 batteries, charger, case) plus a $30-ish bit set.

    I bought this screwdriver to install the drywall in the garage, I must have screwed about 100 screws when it began to slip so I returned it to [@] and got a new one. The annoying part is that BOTH batteries are now broken and the charger won't charge them! That's an awful waste of money, thanks Milwaukee!

      Comments about Milwaukee® 12 Volt Lithium Ion M12 Cordless Screwdriver (2401-22):

      There is no question that this is a really nice tool. The lithium ion batteries are a huge plus. The tools works well, I have used it often and I was delighted with it until the battery charger failed.
      We had a planned (announced), brief power (electrical) outage and I had forgotten and left the charger plugged in and in fact charging a battery. It's not as if my house was hit by lightning or some other catastrophe but when I tried to recharge another battery the following morning the charger was dead. There probably would have been a bit of a power surge, obviously, when the power was turned back on but that should not have killed the charger. There is a 5-year limited warranty on the tool and charger but I'm not even convinced this problem would be covered, the wording in the warranty is unclear, and I would have to send the thing to Toronto to find out, and that assumes that I can dig up the original purchase receipt. I do know a lot about electronics, and I checked that the fuse (inside) is not blown, and I checked the easy components like the diodes and they seem fine. There really is only one component that I could not easily replace (and in any way check) and that is a small integrated circuit (I'm assuming), on a large heat sink. The replacement charger is around $50 apparently, it seems only available on-line, but I may have no choice but to buy a new one. That is disappointing and annoying because otherwise I like this tool very much. I have other Milwaukee tools (a big, monster 8-1/4" circular saw and a superb 12" dual-bevel sliding mitre saw and stand) and they are also top-end tools that are well-designed and durable.

        One of the most indispensable tools in my arsenal. Have used it to drive everything from screws and lag bolts to removing nuts and bolts from engines. It's 275 ft-lbs so says the specs, so it's right up there with many of it's larger counterparts but not for heavy duty concrete work/etc of course. Lightweight and pretty comfortable in the hand. Positive click reversing button. Just a solid tool...

            Comments about Milwaukee® 12 Volt Lithium Ion M12 Cordless Screwdriver (2401-22):

            I use this Milwaukee driver frequently - almost ever day and it's become one of my favorite tools. It is perfect for driving screws and it works fine for light-duty drilling in most materials. It's great for drilling aluminum, sheet metal, drywall and wood.

            If you need to drill and set Tapcons in concrete on a regular basis, you will need something more heavy duty. But for drilling with a small bit in a variety of common materials and for removing and driving screws, this tool can't be beat.

            The motor and gear train in the tool are solid and provide all the torque you will need for anything that will fit a 1/4" hex chuck. The battery is small and lightweight, but has no problem powering the tool all day long. For my regular use, I can go as long as a week without recharging.

            In a nutshell, this tool is very versatile and well designed. I would buy another without any second thought.

              This Driver is good for stuff from small screws that might strip easy to drilling in hard metals. The light helps when working in dark situations.

              I use my driver to R&R covers on HVAC equipment. Way better than the mini-impacts that strip screws so easily. You could set this clutch to set a #4 screw just right in a pound of butter. The light is great in a dim equipment room, the "fuel guage" is a winner. The bit change is truly one-handed. The bit is locked with no trigger pull, so you can break loose the stubborn screws. Batteries charge quickly. Room in the soft case for a bit pack. My driver rides in my truck and because the batteries freeze when low on charge I tend to weaken them in a couple of winters. Get one of these and run your truck over your mini-impact a couple of times. I hate panels with stripped screws that come off after I leave site.

                Building, renovation,or repair this is the first tool off the truck and the last thing put away. It has plenty of torque, it will sink a ton of screws before battery change is required, it's lightweight, feels good in the hand, and it'll fit in most pockets if I don't have a toolbelt on.

                      Out preforms all the other bands out there. Excellant toque controll. Like the chuck stays unlocked untill bit is installed. Used as a production tool on a daily basis it is built to take all you can give.

                        Comments about Milwaukee® 12 Volt Lithium Ion M12 Cordless Screwdriver (2401-22):

                        I can honestly say that this drill is everything I was expecting. I just sold my 200$ snap-on drill driver set with flashlight to buy this one drill. It has more power and and better features then other drill I've used. compared to the more expensive snap-on drill it has more torque, better battery life and charges faster, the snap-on is a little lighter and slightly smaller but it does not have variable speed in forward or reverse, no light for dark areas, no led indicator to show battery life, and feels like a kids toy. I'm so happy with this drill.
