battery screwdrivers

There are old threads, but what is currently a go-to make/model?

This will be used for screwing and unscrewing computer or AV units into and out of racks. We won't be driving 3" screws into oak.

Ideas?

I have a dewalt inertia drive unit that I really like, it’s really nice to be able to adjust speed or direction with just a wrist movement.

Thank you. We did a little background and ordered one of those this afternoon to test out. DCF682. The concept seems fabulous.

They are really cool.  I got one for Christmas several years ago.  It doesn't get used a lot, but for what you are wanting to do, I think it would be ideal.
If you are going down a river at 2 mph and your canoe loses a wheel, how much pancake mix would you need to shingle your roof?

Well, there's only one way to find out!

Thanks for the input.

One of the reasons I bought the dewalt inertia drive, was the high price of replacement batteries for the Milwaukee that it replaced.

I liked the Milwaukee but a replacement battery was going to cost almost as much as the Dewalt

Snap on makes a 14v impact driver that has a large 2 position paddle trigger, one side fwd, one side reverse that mechanics doing low torque stuff love.

I prefer a pistol grip for all power screwing jobs.

Other thought is a ratcheting screwdriver. I’d choose snap on or Williams, which are pretty much the same. I think ratcheting screwdrivers are game changers for some jobs

Just some numbers $45 each for batteries for the Milwaukee so $90 plus tax for just 2 new Milwaukee batteries.

Or for $119 plus tax you can get the dewalt inertia drive

As my father said before he passed, “ buy the batteries and they throw the tool almost for free”
