What a time saver!

I finally grabbed this autofeed gun since i have greatly expanded my Makita 18-volt Arsenal. Using this gun for drywall has saved me so much time. I’m able to hang sheets by myself and not have to fumble with screws. I install a lot of 1/4″ cement board on floors for tile. I was able to find 1 1/4″ cement board screws for this gun. that is the most amazing part right there because that was a huge timesaver. It drives all the screws flush. You have to adjust the depth for different sizes so be prepared to do a couple test ones. Out of almost a thousand cement board screws about 10 of them I had to go back with the impact gun and set them that’s not bad at all. Drywall screws they all go in perfectly you just have to make sure you keep the gun at a perfect 90 degrees from your work surface.
It works better than the others you can buy

I have owned 2 senco guns, 2 rigid. This one doesn’t miss. It works better than the others you can buy. Buy it, you’ll see.
LEARN THE TOOL

A lot of the bad reviews are from folks who did not figure out how to adjust the screw gun. You need to make sure the depth is set right for the appropriate screw. You need to play with it before you expect to use it. Also figure out what fastener works best, senco 1 1/4” is what feeds best, 1 5/8” drywall screws don’t feed well for me, maybe they will for you. It’s also dependent on your technique, make sure you’re square to the piece you are attaching to. Excellent tool if you’re on the 18v platform. Made in Japan.
Great for new construction, not so much for remodel work.

Was expecting a little more from such an expensive tool, works fine with drywall and new construction but has a hard time even setting an 1 1/4″ screw in old studs. The torque is seriously lacking for an 18v tool, it absolutely will not drive a deck screw in subfloor so if you ever plan on using it for that…dont. The auto feed works well, with the couple thousand screws i sent through it only a few didnt feed right. One thing I did really like about this tool is it will drive the screw in from almost any angle, i have another corded autofeed screw gun i use for deck screws that will only drive a screw in if you’re perfectly perpendicular to the work surface. Overall its an ok tool, little high on price for only being a one trick pony.
Sheetrock yes, sub-floor no

Best sheetrock gun. Sucks for 2” sub-floor screws. Most screws stick out and need to be counter sunk. Overall, id give it 5 stars if it was advertised as a sheetrock gun. No regrets buying it.

Excellent tools, it’s a pity that there is no battery charge indicator, neither on the device, nor on batteries
