Whether you're a serious craftsperson or a newly-minted do-it-yourselfer who's taking on home improvement projects to save money, you know that not all fastening jobs require a heavy, expensive drill driver. With the Milwaukee 0490-22 cordless screwdriver, you get the power and flexibility you need for quick repairs, cosmetic upgrades, and small-scale construction projects. And since this tool doesn't demand high power, you won't have to wait for extra battery recharges or deal with stripped hardware.
Two-Speed Gearbox and 21-Position Clutch for Versatility
This cordless, four-volt screwdriver features a heavy-duty, two-speed gearbox that delivers 200 or 600 RPM for effective, job-specific performance. Its 21-position clutch features auto shutoff, which stops rotation of the bit once the desired torque setting is met, providing improved control. And a dedicated drill mode makes it easy to drill pilot holes or removed damaged screws.
Quick-Change Chuck and Compact Body for Easy Handling
The screwdriver's quick-change chuck allows for fast, one-handed bit changes while you work, and it's snug bit grip prevents dropped screws when the screwdriver is inverted.
At 11-5/8 inches long with an articulated body that lets you select whether you want to work with a stick-style or pistol-style grip, the 0490-22 is easy to maneuver in small or awkward spaces. The body is well balanced and weighs just 1.2 pounds for reduced operator fatigue. The screwdriver's small size also makes it easy to toss in your work bag and it is a breeze to store between jobs.
Cordless, Lithium-Ion Power for Superior Run Time
With the cordless 0490-22, you won't ever have to deal with a nest of tangled cords. Its lightweight, 3.0-Ah lithium-ion battery delivers superior run time and long battery life. A convenient battery fuel gauge displays remaining run time, so you always know when it's time to recharge.
Like all Milwaukee products, the 0490-22 is backed by a five-year warranty that protects against defects in material and workmanship.
Since its founding in 1924, Milwaukee has focused on a single vision: to produce the best heavy-duty electric power tools and accessories available to the professional user.

This screw driver's MFRS price of $250 is way out of range for what this unit is.Read more ›
This is a definite improvement over using the drill. I am now able to reach areas that were inaccessible before.
The drill ships with two batteries and a charger that will return a battery to full charge quickly - long before you will be able to run down the second. The battery charge indicator is a nice touch. Whenever you operate the screwdriver the charge level indicator lights up on the battery.
The power is not impressive, but certainly adequate for almost all jobs. For tougher jobs you will need to use the slower of the two speeds as torque is limited at the higher speed. This is the only issue I have had, and probably comes from using a drill for this task for so long.
Building a deck using screws? This isn't the tool for the job (no, I didn't try that ;). I believe it is up to any other task, as long as you select the appropriate speed.
The ergonomics are ok, but not perfect. The units with more sculpted handles will be more comfortable for a lot of people. I was willing to overlook that in order to get a brand that I trusted to work for years. I would make the same purchase again and recommend the screwdriver to others.
I really enjoy how compact this screwdriver is, it conveniently fits in my tool pouch so I no longer have to carry around my heavy cordless drill for simple tasks like installing lights, switches, or outlets. The easy change bit collar is also a nice touch, you do not have to keep holding back the collar it will click and stay open until you replace the bit. Sounds like a simple thing but it's the little details like this that makes an already great tool a better one.
Battery life last a long time but it's still nice that Milwaukee included two batteries and good charger with this screwdriver. Some other brands I looked at had a permanent internal battery making the screwdriver useless while it was being charged.
My only regret is I should have bought this cordless screwdriver a long time ago, it has been a real time saver. I still carry my old fashion hand screwdrivers but the first tool I usually reach for is my Milwaukee screwdriver!
The battery ran down after 30 screws in and out.
I then swapped batteries.
The fresh battery has been in since.
My primary use so far has been for unhanging and rehanging doors. I use it to disassemble, drill pilot holes, reassemble. So far, after 5 days and 6 doors (I'm not working fast) it still shows 4 LED's. On the first charge.
Clutch seems to work well. Weight is ideal.
I'm glad I found it because based on reviews of the previous Milwaukee model I ALMOST bought the yellow competitor which weighs 2.75lb, vs this at 0.9lbs.
Although MADE IN CHINA (how much would it cost if made in Mississippi?) it looks like they have quality control (I hope).
Summary - I'd recommend it.
6 month update - still going strong. I'll lay it down, come back 3 weeks later, battery still good. Just bought 3 more from HD.
