Questions & Answers

can you use it for framing and deck?

Asked by: bob
Not for framing, won't sink a screw over 2", can start but won't finish. I ended up using a impact driver to finish sinking screws for a deck frame. Wouldn't work very well on pressure treated either. I also did drywall, wastes screws, doesn't work in corners, and is bulky for a ceiling to hold straight up.

what is the availability and cost of screws

Asked by: DanG
There is a very limited size and composition available. I need coated exterior screws - the only size offered is 2 1/2" which is too long for my purpose. Its too bad because tool is a tremendous time-saver. What was a 4 hour job took about 45 minutes. But I can only use it on a few jobs since I can't find the sizes and screw heads and coatings I need.

Customer Reviews

3 in. Drywall and Deck Collated Screwdriver is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 183.

If you do your research and read the other reviews before complaining because you weren't using it right, you'll see that you need to have the tool spinning before plunging the screw into the wood/drywall first. Even when you occasionally screw it up and don't drive it far enough in, just come back with your impact and finish it off. Easily worth the $100 just on this project let alone in the future. I can't wait to use it on drywall.

I've used this driver on 5/4" decking, 2x6" treated, double 3/4" plywood flooring, Hardi-backer and 1/2&5/8 drywall with great success on all. The main trick is to use consistent speed and pressure. If for some reason you mis-drill one or falter half way in, just stop and skip it or you risk stripping the bit. Simply go back to it with an impact driver later because trying to get the bit to re-engage a half started screw mid way through the mechanism cycle is not easy to do and sometimes re-engaging starts the cycle to start feeding the next screw as well. Most screws are available in my area, if you can't find the ones you need they are on most stores web-sites. Be sure to use the correct fasteners for the job, there are more styles and sizes coming out all the time. I've found in my area STD drywall screws, metal drywall, backer-board, general purpose, decking in various lengths and colors, and special composite decking screws with heads for better composite retention. All fasteners in my area cost nearly the same as by the pound but the tool saves my fingers from metal splinters and saves well over half the time. Bit length is unique to this Ridgid unit, but Senco and other brand bits can be used in a pinch by compensating on the screw length adjustment. I absolutely love this tool! Thanks Ridgid.

I am a general contractor and I have a utility vehicle stocked with hundreds of tools. I never use this thing because every time it's more of a pain to deal with then just using the other dozen screw guns I have. Every other screw doesn't go or doesn't get set and if you don't have the angle just right it just shoots the screws out the side. I ended up every time going back to the old screw gun. I've had this for a couple years now. I've tried every size drywall screw deck screw. It's always been an absolute disappointment and frustrating mess plus your completed job then looks bad because of all the screws that didn't work. Not what a professional needs.

This is the first Rigid power tool I have purchased and I couldn't be happier! Like any tool it takes a little getting used to, but once you take your time to get to know it, you can fly through the screws. SQUARE THE HEAD TO THE MATERIAL!!!!! I can't stress this enough... I think most of the bad reviews are simply due to the fact that people aren't using the tool correctly. The first job I used it for was screwing down sub flooring. So must easier than going one by one with my impact! This tool, definitely made me interested in checking out more Rigid tools. Oh... did I mention it comes with a lifetime warranty! LIFETIME!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limitations The collating screwdriver probably works great on drywall. But when it comes to Decking, after the first few boards it just wasn't able to rev up enough torque to push those screws all the way down into the boards. The clutch release was practically nonexistent. You had to guess when the screw had been drilled. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn't. I tried a slow push and then I tried more energetic pushes. I waited until the screwdriver built up torque again and then would try to insert another screw. I ended up having to take a separate drill and drill back all the screws that were left up. The screw sizing was set correctly and amount of countersink was set to the maximum. But,it just didn't have the torque for decking.

I bought this product for a 100+ sheet DIY project, hoping that I could use it one-handed and expecting it to eliminate the wasted time and motion of manually placing screws into a drywall bit. It misfeeds (that is, either jams or drops the next screw) very often, especially when used one-handed. Note to Rigid: when you're propping up a sheet, you *really* need this tool to work right the first time. The direction adjustment is backwards -- reverse is under your thumb if you're right handed -- which makes it too easy to inadvertently change the direction. The depth adjustment had no discernible effect; it drove as deeply when set to minimum depth as when set to maximum. Still, it worked often enough when used two-handed on ceilings that I have to give it an extra star.

It kicked out most of the screws and messed up most of the rest. I got 2 out of 12 good ones. HD was closed so .. I had time to sleep on it (and calm down). I really wanted it to work more than I wanted my money back. I found this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTfysgHDA-w and it's boring but watch it. Also, FYI HD put this video in the product page not those useless ads you have, seriously HD. So that video is a start but sadly, its stops before actually showing useage ... again a bit of a fail. As others have noted, make sure the screws are in the track under the clear plastic guard, don't let up, keep the tool as perpendicular as possible. After a few runs, it got easier and it's great.
