can you use it for framing and deck?

Asked by bob December 9, 2012

Answers

you can in your putting deck boards on with 3" screws or even 2 1/4". Framing a deck I would recommend using nails for scheer strength purposes especially where lintels/beams are considered.

what is the availability and cost of screws

Asked by DanG July 17, 2013

Answers

It only works with Phillips and square head Senco style screws. If you are working on exterior projects, the selection if sparse. You have to by your replacement bits from Home Depot as it takes a funky 6-1/4 length bit. I would have returned this tool, but it wass one of the less expensive and the other options appear to use proprietary bits as well. SO FRUSTRATING!!!!

how is it for picket fences?

Asked by IWMac January 9, 2014

Answers

Wonderful. I recommend one screw at the top and one at the bottom until you put up 20 or so pickets then go back and use the gun to rapidly i stall the other two screws.

would this work putting up wooden fences

Asked by Dwight February 22, 2019

Answers

I don't think so. You have to push pretty hard to engage the screw and keep contact. I didn't find the gun very helpful to install sub flooring. Ended up just using an impact screw driver.

Can you use nails instead of screws with this tool

If you can find a star bit that will fit, correct diameter and length then yes, if you can find collated star screws.

The #2sq bit that came with the gun rounded in about 10 screws, only 2 of which ran all the way down to the depth desired. After putting in an impact rated bit, the screws still did not run all the way to the board, leaving about 1/4 inch to do by hand. No amount of fine adjustment would bring the screws to level with the wood. With a few thousand screws to drive on this deck, the tool is going back. It feels like the gun is running so fast that it is stripping the wood as the screw ridges try to bite in to draw the screw into the wood. There is an internal spring behind the bit driver which prevents the bit from going all the way down to the board so no amount of pressure will push the screw into the wood without it being drawn in on it's own accord.

All my tools are made by Dewalt... until now. 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!

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!

Don’t waste your money... you’ll be fixing more half driven screws than actually drive to the desired depth.

Favorably impressed!
This corded collated screwgun is one fine piece of equipment! The manual is fairly easy to understand and follow. The manual fails to show the difference between the drywall and wood nose pieces, but this is clarified in the single page instruction sheet that comes in the package. Either I got very lucky, or this is the first electrical tool I have ever purchased, that does not require setup (other than bit and screw loading). I used a scrap piece of drywall and a scrap piece of wood to screw it to, and the vast majority of the screws went it to the depth they needed to. It'll take a little more practice to gain proficiency, and I have yet to try the reverse setting. I may have to refer to the manual on that one! :) I will say that right out of the box, it works very well. Overall, I am very favorably impressed with this tool, and I expect to get a lot of use out of it this coming Spring, for fence rebuilding and replacement.

There is a very steep learning curve, as others have noted. Unfortunately, I destroyed the first bit, and had to order a new one. Screws are a little difficult to load, and the guard is cumbersome. Still, it makes installing deck boards much easier than just an impact drill.

Call it Bob Marley cause it keeps jammin.
This heavy, very loud (needed ear protection), cumbersome tool fails to drive more than 60% of the screws you feed through it. 60% perfect drive, 25% needs more tightening, 20% throws the screw on the ground, 15% the tool jams and you have to get a pair of pliers to fix it.
