Customer Questions & Answers

can you use it for framing and deck?

Asked by: Anonymous
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: Anonymous
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.

how is it for picket fences?

Pickets to horizontals
Asked by: IWMac
Works good mostly on straight flat surface, underlayment and flat rack work, building a fence. If the work is on saw horses. My 2x2 uprights it worked, but my decking it was more effort than it was worth. Ended up using my impact driver.

Customer Reviews

3 in. Drywall and Deck Collated Screwdriver is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the money I bought this gun when I added 1/2" plywood to my subfloor to build up floor height to match adjoining rooms. I screwed the sheets every 6" on edge & 12" in field for 3 bedrooms. This tool made very quick work of it. I spent on average at 20-30 minutes per room using this gun. Other reviews mentioned jammed/not flush screws, and that does happen - however, you learn to hold it such that the nosepiece isn't angled and it will drive solid every time. For the handful of screws that didn't make it - just make a round with the hand driver to finish these off, no big deal. Also - I always leave the trigger locked, drives better and faster. Screw loading is fast, driving is fast. For the money, you can't beat it.

First of all I would like to say that I don't hang dry wall for a living, I have done my fair share in the past while in the Service ( Civil Engineering- PRIME BEEF). I have used several screw guns including Makita, and one off brand from Menards. I really like the Rigid tool program and the fact they come with life time warranty's. That's huge today considering the majority of tools sold in big box retailers originate from our favorite country, China. The Pro's - This screw driver is built well. I love the grip, how easily it feeds screws on the strip into the port, it has some meat to it. When you pick up this tool, it feels like you have something in your hand. I found this gun to be comfortable to use while finishing my garage. The Con's - with the technology we have today, you would think there would be a battery version of this available. I found while doing corners, sometimes it was impossible to get near the 90 degree angle or in tight areas. Open areas were fine. While on a ladder 14 feet up it was cumbersome to have the cord dangling down attached to an extension cord. I did not use Senco screws that were recommended on the box when I bought this tool. I picked out what ever HD was selling and they worked just fine. For my job, I used 3" drywall screws that were sold in a bucket for around 15 bucks. Not too bad..... While using the tool, I found it does take some getting use to. All tools are designed differently and this is no different. If you have never used a screw gun before, they really work by feel. Before starting a job, get some scrap material and practice. You will understand what I'm saying when you do this. A lot of folks complained about screws not going in or all the way. I had this too at first. It's all about that "feel" and, you must go straight in and not on an angle. This will result in a fastener that is installed properly. The first time. I personally hung 4 x 8 sheets of 5/8 drywall by myself with this gun. the fact that the screw is on a belt or strip is huge when going solo. I would have given this 5 stars but due to the initial " learning curve" I gave it 4 as there was not an option for a 4 1/2. All in all, this is not a bad tool to have. If you are a true " do it your self-er" and have large dry wall job to do, I would recommend giving this tool a considerable thought. Not only will you save alot of time, but some frustration too by installing screws manually or "one by one". On an end note, I think it would be a good idea to see "how to" videos produced from Rigid on the you tube channel; in regards to different applications Rigid tools can be used. I think it would clear up any negative feed back on this tool. Education on proper use is always key....

It's going back. had the same problems as everyone else. the first few screws went great, then we tried it on the ceiling, and too much like work, too awkward to apply the correct amount of pressure to drive the screws straight, so we ended up using the regular drill/screw gun for that. When we went to move on to the walls, not one screw would fire, my son lined them up, went to use it and it spit them out like bad fish. We didn't have the time or patience to fiddle with it so we ended up using our cordless drill/screw gun for the whole job. its only a 6x8 bathroom. too bad, my husband was very excited to have a new toy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Patience and practice helps a lot At first I wanted to punch this thing through the drywall and leave it for dead. I almost returned it to the store in a fit of rage. I was lucky if I could get 50% of the screws to drive as expected. I fumed and struggled through my first few sheets of drywall before I conceded and used my impact driver to finish out my day. That night I went online and read reviews until I found one that gave me the tip I needed... To get this tool to work, and work well, you MUST keep the motor running. Don't be shy. Pull the trigger and let the bit spin before, during and after pushing the screw to the wall. Once I figured this out I was flying through the drywall and smiling all the way. Only occasionally would I miss a screw and almost always it was operator error; not the tool's fault. Do not expect to get into the corners or tight spots. Otherwise, pull the trigger and let 'er rip!

The clutch went out and won't sink the screws. The first one I had only sank 20 screws and this happened. Took it back for and exchange and the only one they had on the shelf was obviously used. Box was taped and it was missing packing not to mention it was dirty from previous use. I may have sank 50 screws this time before it broke. It's going back and staying there. Won't waste my time and $$ on this junk again.

I read in other reviews that it takes time, patience and practice to get it to work. It shouldn't. Screws don't line up correctly. Gun is NOT lightweight. Just feels like a cheapo piece of plastic and some stamped metal. Driver bits appear to be proprietary. I bought it this morning and it's going back this afternoon and I hope the credit me for the box of screws I bought as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Functions fine once you get used to it, but a terrible lack of screw options This screw gun works like most of the guns I've used. It takes a bit of getting used in knowing how to push and when to let off, otherwise it's fine. The reason I cannot recommend this screw gun has more to do with Home Depot's lack of support for the products they sell. They only carry two lengths of drywall screw, one length of subfloor and one deck screw. So, if you would like to use the red colored deck screws that matches the cedar toned treated wood, which is the only color of treated wood you can get at the Home Depots in my area, you can't. It is not an option. Additionally, if you'd like to reuse your screw strips with the red colored deck screw, you can't do that either, since it only comes in star drive and you can't buy a 6 1/4" star drive bit anywhere, and a 6" bit just won't work. The lack of versatility and makes this tool difficult to recommend.

This thing is a complete piece if junk. Doesn't feed right, depth gauge isn't consistent, and it broke after less than 12 hours of use. As a general contractor I thought this would save me some time. Turns out that an impact and a sleeve are MUCH faster. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
