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.

3 in. Drywall and Deck Collated Screwdriver is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 170.

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.

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 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!

I had 500 linear feet of fence to build and this little driver saved me hours, if not days. It took a little practice to get the hang of it, but figured it out with less than a dozen screws. You'll learn to get the RPM's humming before attempting to place the screw. Then with the desired depth setting, trust the driver to get it done as you push with consistent pressure. Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

Bought this gun over the weekend to finish off 5\4 deck boards on a new deck i just built. Couple of things that made me return it that afternoon. The screws loading is 50 / 50 successful at best. I spent the first 15 minutes feeding every other time manually. Literally watching screw after screw just fall out of the gun. Then when they did load the screw head would float making it impossible to keep a straight line. Anyone who builds decks knows there's nothing worse than seeing a row of screws that look like a 10 year old put them in randomly. After messing with this thing for 45 minutes, i went right back to my impact driver. This tool "idea" for decking is great, but the ability to feed correctly and keep a straight line make it useless. Maybe with drywall its good because the screw head gets covered up. But again for decks, useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a waste of money and me this tool is Tried to make the drill work for me when doing subflooring but nothing worked...the depth adjustment doesn't work, its clutch doesn't work and strips screws...I bought 3 bits to do 300 squaternary feet of flooring wasted and half abacker of screws. I bought the competitors and the difference is like day aND night. Don't waste your time...you have been cautioned.
