milwaukee 12v cordless m12 screwdriver
If you buy this for putting things together you will be very happy in my book best screwdriver out there. And i think thats what other people reviews that are bad is because you are expecting more. If you want to drill and have 2 speed clutch you should by the 12 volt drill with the hand tight chuck. I own the 18v for most of my heavy drilling. This is my favorite tool in most cases will drill small pilot holes but dont expect a lot of power for that. Also not listed in instruction when putting battery in charger push down firmly or you will think like i did that you have a bad battery back you cant just drop the battery in there

Sub compact screwdriver
This can be used in a variety of small tasks in the home. It could use a bit more power and torque. It is not meant for industrial use

Grip too fat for my medium sized hand
Already owning and loving a few V28 tools, I needed something to replace my aging 12v Mikata drill and impact driver for smaller tasks. After a lot of research, I selected the M12 series. CPO delivered beautiful "like new" refurb models, but the grip was so fat in my hand, I never even tried them out.

I really like Milwaukee's battery "fuel gauge" feature, so I have now selected their M18 line to replace my Mikata tools and just love them. The M18 grips are much more comfortable in my hand, the smaller M18 battery tools are still not too heavy, and I prefer the M18's implementation of the battery fuel gauge being on the batteries instead of being integrated into the tool itself (aka M12). In fact, the M12 LED flashlight doesn't even have a battery gauge.

Light-em up
I've had my driver for over two years and use it almost dayly in my job as an electrician. It's small,light weight and tough. I cann't count the many times I have dropped it from the top of a ladder just to pick it up and put it back to work. The only thing that could improve it is more lighting.

The Milwaukee M12 platform is amazing. I bought a fork meter a while back and I've been hooked on it since. I usually get bare tools because I have 2 batteries and a charger already, but the price on the recon with the 2 batteries and the charger was too good to pass up! This driver is great. Here are the reasons I say that:

Clutch - It has a precise clutch that I've used on ductwork and soft wood and never stripped a screw so far.

Trigger feel - When you engage the trigger just a touch, it slowly turns with even power to dial it in with great feel. This tool is like tool an extension of my hand at this point.

Battery life - You'll be happy with the battery life. I've never done a project that went all the way through an entire battery cycle. I have the second battery fully charged for when I get too lazy to charge the battery after I'm done and it holds a charge for a long time.

Case – the soft case it comes with is nice. There are straps that hold the battery, charger, and tool in place while leaving enough room for a bit set.

Solid construction – This is a well designed and well built tool. It has rubber in all the right spots to adsorb and deflect when you drop it. That's not mentioning the steal and heavy duty plastic housing.

Versatility - I also have an M18 kit but I have to say that this does what I need most the time. I mostly only end up getting the "big dog" (18V hammer drill) when I need to drill into concrete.

Recon value – I have bought several of the M12 bare tools at CPO and I have been thoroughly pleased with the quality of the recon tools. They all looked brand new and worked perfect. I dipped my toe into recon with the purchase of a impactor based on the 60 day money back guarantee and I've never bought new since. Hard to be anything but happy when you save money on a great tool that shows up on my door in two days!

The only negative thing I have to say about it is the weight. I love the sturdiness of the tool but I have had other 12V drivers that were lighter. I think the trade off is well worth it.

Excellent value for the money
Powerful driver with excellent speed control. The light is a big asset. And the batteries last a long time. Has an indicator on the side that shows how much battery life is left. Wish I could have purchased this sooner.

How to use this for drilling small holes? do I have to buy any accessories? I already have a tool box 48-32-4401, which I bought together with the electric screwdriver. thank you
Sodyk on Sep 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You can purchase drill bits with the 1/4 hex shanks that will fit this tool, however, the RPM is a bit low so drilling may take more time and effort than a tool that is faster.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
