Shockwave Impact Duty Drivers

Shockwave Impact Duty DriversMilwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty™ Magnetic Nut Drivers

Milwaukee® Shockwave Impact Duty™ Magnetic Nut Drivers are engineered for extreme durability and up to 10x life of conventional nut drivers. These nut drivers are made with a proprietary steel and heat treated to control hardness.

I immediately noticed two features that contractors and DIY-ers will like.  The Shockwave™ Impact Duty Magnetic Nut Drivershave a powerful magnet in the driver that allows for a secure grip and holding power on the fastener.   The other feature is an indexed shank that allows the bit to lock into impact drivers. Many cheaper competitive nut drivers have a smooth shank which are designed for a drill chuck and not an impact driver.

Color-coding on the ends of the shank also allow for easy identification.  These drivers also have a chamfered edge to allow for fastening in tight spaces.

I tested these drivers on my washing machine and dryer.  I needed to change clean out the washer filter and remove the dryer panels to clean out lint.   The magnetic tip alone will save you time and aggravation! I appreciated not losing or dropping those tiny sheet metal screws.


  • Proprietary steel and heat treat process for maximum strength and durability

  • Chamfered edge for fastening in tight spaces

The  Milwaukee® Shockwave Impact Duty™ Magnetic Nut Drivers are the perfect solution for heavy duty impact driving or just the run of the mill nut fastening.  Either way you can’t go wrong with Milwaukee’s attention to detail and quality of the tool.
