Powered electric screwdrivers take the hard work out of screwing and unscrewing, saving time and reducing user fatigue. As the tool itself rotates, it removes the need for manual twisting and therefore eliminates the risk of user injury from friction or exertion. There are also options for straight or angled handles to best suit your requirements and personal comfort. With compact models that allow almost as much manoeuvrability as a typical handheld screwdriver, a cordless screwdriver can save you time and effort and still allow you to get into those tight spaces like drawers and cupboards.
Cordless electric screwdrivers accommodate a variety of different chucks and driver bits to suit your needs. In the same way that manual screwdrivers can have interchangeable screw bits, powered screwdrivers can also have their screw bits changed to suit the screws you are working on. So, no matter whether you need a Phillips, a flathead or a Torx bit, a powered screwdriver is just as adaptable as their manual counterparts, with the bits typically made from chromium-vanadium steel. Electric screwdrivers can even be used on tamper-resistant screws. By choosing to use a powered tool, you can ensure a quick, tight and secure finish that you may not be able to achieve with manual screwdrivers.
