Best screwdriver in my bag! Rated 5 by Anonymous
As an electric motor mechanic and industrial electrician this driver really meets my needs. The compact design is great to drop in a side pouch or a pocket. The bits change easily, no fumbling around on a ladder with twisting parts. One draw back, if the shaft were 1-1/2" longer it would be easier to work on motor controls. Overall very happy!!

  Yes, I recommend this product.
I use this tool everyday. The bit sizes are the most common used. The 5/16th hex driver is used the most for pulling equipment panels and tends to strip out after some time. Maybe some extra heat tempering of the nut driver ends would help.

Very awesome, 1 drawback Rated 4 by Anonymous
This screwdriver is my main driver and I use it daily. The bit changes are fast and smooth, easy to know where exactly each bit is when you flip it around. Milwaukee nailed their driver handle ergonomics, very comfortable, robust, gives a great grip to turn heavy screws. Bits fit great, don't slip or strip easily at all. The profile of the bits is right where I like it, fast to change in the sockets but tight enough not to fall out. I have yet to chip any bits after 8 months of daily use. The wire looper makes a generously radiused loop of wire which is easier to apply than some other tighter loopers, the strippers must be used by looping them around the insulation and indeed are effective, but I find it's more for if you don't have strippers on yourself, this can work in a pinch. Not recommended for repetitive stripping unless you get very fast at the looping motion. Both are fully functional, just don't expect to stick and pull off insulation like plier strippers. The largest drawback to me is the handle head where the handle meets the shaft, it is a large perpindicular shape that makes it difficult to find a good spot in a tool belt to slide it into. I ground mine down to a more slim profile and it is perfect but a smooth profile like the nut driver handles or something like the taper of the ratcheting screwdriver would be MUCH more ideal. It also doesn't include any torx bits, not a massive detail for all but is noteworthy. With slight tweaking it will reign.
