Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
This thing is garbage, It could barely put a screw into 5/4 x6 pressure treated lumber and a 2x6 joist. My 1986 makita corded drill has more power. Buy a impact driver for decking screws way more power and faster.

Answer: 
It's intended use is for drywall. However, for framing and decking, a lot depends on finding the screws needed. Decking are normally coated and for framing I find a Pneumatic Nailer is much faster and more effective.

Answer: 
Mine had a strong enough motor to do it, however it simply broke down too early to really do much with it. Even when it worked, it didn't drive screws fully in--not because of a lack of power, but due to the inability to adjust the unit to do so.

Answer: 
I probably would only use it on the deck. The screw gun is hard to use at any other angle beside 90. It would be great for screwing the planks on the deck or anything else where you screw it in straight on.

Answer: 
You can get the screws at Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards at any time. The cost is about the same each place, buy in bulk and talk to the managers they are usually willing to give a 10% discount on them if you are spending over a $100 in supplies on a big project.

Screws are readily available from Home Depot and Lowes. Use Senco products, they seem to work very well with the driver. Price is a little more than ordinary drywall screws, but not prohibitive to using same for large projects. Similar to cost of roofing nail coils.

There is no usage information regarding the R6791 being used specifically on picket fences to advise of. However, if specific picket fence construction in question is done with 1” to 3” screws being driven into wood, it possibly could be used in that application.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 125 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by We be jammin' I'm very disappointed. I've always held Rigid tools in high esteem, and maybe it works fine with shorter screws, but I was using 3 inch screws, and it jammed half the time at the beginning of a clip (screws tangle and catch at entry to slide). And at the end of a clip the strip gets tight and pulls plastic into the guide edges and again jams. Spent a lot of time fighting it the whole weekend. Ordered alternate brand "S" from online supplier "A". It cost more, is bigger and thus heavier, but comes with the "W" option. It has Worked flawlessly for two days. August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not really a DIY tool Practice and adjustments highly recommended. Once it's' "tuned" to the job at hand. Works well. But wasteful. I gave it 3 stars, because it's not a true homeowner DIY tool out of the box ready to go... For a homeowner, I recommend a simple screwgun attachment with a sleeve. I recommend this tool with common sense in mind. Needs a little work. Takes about an hour to set it up for a task, from construction to drywall. Faster to use a impact driver on construction or air nailer. It doesn't sink 3" screws very well. July 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lousy - Buy another brand Don't buy! Frustrating tool. Erratic screw feed - some strips OK but others problematic. Hard to set screws especially above head. Returned & bought a Hitachi model that works great. August 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This thing sucks rocks! This is one of the worst purchases I've ever made from Home Depot. Let's get this straight - - I'm not an HD basher. Just about every thing I've bought from HD has been great. Their 7 1/4" circ saw is magnificent. I just wish this screwdriver was. It jams CONSTANTLY. Misfeeds CONSTANTLY, the screws are supposed to automatically feed and line up to be driven into the material. NOPE!, Doesn't happen. The screws jam into the guide, or the plastic strip won't traverse the guide and jams. Out of a strip of 50 screws, 40% wind up on the floor. This thing is so bad, that I literally take the screw strips and use a regular cordless screwdriver to drive the screws. Something wrong with this picture. Save your money and DON'T buy this thing. I would take it back but I bought it last September while I was trying to get county building permits for a construction project. I just took it out of the box and what a mess. June 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A timesaver when you're working alone I've used this driver for drywall, decks, and tile backer-board, and it has worked well in all of those applications. The only drawback for me is that the strips of collated nails are so short that big jobs require constant reloading. That isn't a fault of the gun. Still, collated is pretty fast especially when doing drywall work alone. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terribly frustrating. Had the previous model and changed because I needed the longer screws that this model (supposedly) had the ability to drive. However, there is so much play in the drive bit that more times than not, the screw either bent (which made it a whole lot of fun to remove) or just misfired. Then even with the bit adjustment adjusted for maximum depth, it would still not counter sink the screws. I was laying a deck and had to sink virtually every screw with a battery operated drill with a square bit. Horrible, engineering. Can't even believe they are selling this. Certainly didn't live up to previous Rigid tools. I strongly recommend you avoid this purchase. February 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waste of 100 bucks This gun doesnt work at all. Wouldnt recommend it to anyone. Dont believe any of the good reviews save your money and time April 17, 2016
