Customer Questions & Answers

Does this screw Gun have a screw feeder or does it only do one screw manually for each screw

If not. Can you please tell me which of your screw Guns use an automatic feeder.
Asked by: DC
This one does not have a feeder. One screw at a time.

5300 RMP High-Speed Variable Speed Reversible Drywall Gun is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.

It has good torque to set screws. Setting the depth of screws is very easy and stays set. Just used it on a drywall installation for a shower and it worked quite well. The trigger set is sensitive to activate, but can be mastered. Ability to push in screws from butt of screw gun is a very good feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An underestimated value I recently had to replace the drywall in our office. I typically just use my cordless drill for sinking the screws, but I figured I take a walk down the tool aisle. I'm a Dewalt snob, so I migrated right towards the yellow...there were 2 models to chose from, but this one came in a combo kit (with cut out tool) and seemed just as hefty as the other dewalt model on the shelf (and a little less expensive). The more expensive model has a silver nosepiece on it, and I was going to get it just for the fact that it seemed to be all metal, but I couldnt justify the extra money because I'm only going to use it occasionally.... There are other reviews about the nose on this one being black plastic....THE NOSE ON THIS UNIT IS NOT PLASTIC...It looks like it, but it's not. Some of the black paint has worn off the edge, revealing the silver underneath.... Once you understand how drywall guns are supposed to work (leaving the trigger locked ON), it will only take you 3 or 4 screws to appreciate the purchase!.... I will not be using the battery operated drill for drywall ever again. And for the record, the nose piece on this gun has exactly the same in function and adjustment as the higher model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool! l've had one of these screw guns for about five years. has never failed me, and believe it or not it still has the original bit in it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last two weeks We bought three of these DW255 for a jobsite. Two have already died within two weeks of use. Not at all durable for our needs. Hoping its just a bad batch as I've usually had great luck with my older DeWalt tools. These new models just are sub par and I'm highly dissappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way better than a screwdriver I bought this to install subfloor in a bedroom. This is making the job go so much faster. Still adjusting the depth gauge on it to get the screws set to the depth I want. With the speed of the motor I have to watch how fast I'm putting the screws in or it rounds out the head of the screw. Even with that I'm still glad I purchased it. For the amount of time saved and just getting use to how to operate the gun I'm happy with it. I read the reviews of other people on the 3 Dewalt Scruguns and decided this one would be the one, not since it was the cheapest, but the others didn't seem to have any better features for the price. By the time I'm done putting subfloor down the Scrugun and I will work as one. Already told a friend about it and he is going to get one for when he puts in his deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No surprises - functioned as expected HAve only tried the screw gun out but the depth adjustment was easy and did not seem to change as some of the reviews indicate. Will give it a good workout in a couple of weeks
