Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth operator! This is a very nice gun to use! Adjustments are quick and easy and stay true for as long as you need them to! There is plenty of power and torque for driving even the longest deck screws home, FAST! Bit engagement it sensitive and locks in quickly to enable a straight drive without worrying as much about slipping off the screw head and creating an unsightly divot in your deck or drywall! The grip is very ergonomic which allow you to use it comfortably for a prolonged period of time and the larger belt hook is an added bonus to make your job easier! February 28, 2007
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Drywaller This screwgun is your basic of drywall gun's. It is reliable but a little heavy when compared to other guns like the Ridget or Makita. Would recamend for home users and casual drwaller's. Definatly a durable product for drops and rough use. February 28, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by garye Bought this screw gun for home use no problems works great. Would recommend this screw gun. November 25, 2008
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok The unit is ok but cant quite keep its depth setting consistent. the depth setting seems to not be locked in well causing problems with accurate driving. It works moderately well for drywall but failed miserably when i tried using it to drive hardibacker screws. ( inconsistent depth kills it the cheap plastic/composite nose piece kills it) spend the extra $$ to upgrade to a better model or brand February 22, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent My last screw gun was a Craftsman. It was heavy duty, lower RPM, that did a great job on dry wall, but more important, decking. After constructing an entire home and extra large deck, the planking on a dock, and a lot of framing, it finally wore out -- more than 22 years after I bought it. This new DeWalt gun, weighs just a littel less, has an automatic depth setter and clutch, and a huge amount of torque. I just finished my first major trial with it -- framing out a room expansion. It worked great driving 3" screws through 2x4's. The only issue I had -- similar to the old screw gun, is the need to buy the best phillips head bits so as not to strip out the screws. Probably the best recommendation would be to get the square head bits and screws, and then no slippage. January 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with the performance Installed composite decking on a 10' x 24' deck and the tool worked great. Would hate to try doing the job without this screw gun. Had plenty of power and the 2500 RPM was just the right speed for the job April 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DW257 This tool works well and does a good job. It is comfortable to handle and has the power to do the job easily. The only problem I had was when I got it out of the box, the nose piece depth adjustment was stuck and could not be turned by hand. Once this was overcome, it did the job I bought it for. I am satified and would buy it again. December 31, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Screw Gun I ordered the scrugun after returning the Home Depot brand screw gun. This scrugun did everything well that the HD brand did not. The 2500 rpm is fast enough and work well for me on metal or wood studs. Great value for the price. December 23, 2013
