View Full Version : Drywall Auto Feed Screwgun

02-11-2004, 02:44 AM
Hey all,
Well it is time for an auto feed screw gun. I have heard all bad things about the Senco 14.4v cordless so I am going with good old AC power. Any recommendations? I am considering the Senco DS200-AC or the Makita 6834. Any opinions or recommendations is appreciated.

Hey all,
I just saw the Hilti SF 4000 A cordless with the autofeed attachment. It looked pretty sweet. Has anyone used one?

Forget the Hilti...found out it is over $600.00

Keep looking there are lots out there. I have used a quick drive for years. I also like the senco cordless but they are slow if you are running a lot of screws.

I have the Senco Dura-Spin with a Dewalt corded screwgun and I use it mostly for tile underlayment and it works excelent. In fact it paid for itself the first job I had it on. I used it for some small drywall jobs and it worked equally as well.

Quickdrive has a broad range of applications but changing out the tips is a pain. They have this little wrench that is hard to fit and if you loose it you are screwed ... actually, I guess if you loose it your not screwed, your nailed.

I got a Makita 6834 on ebay for $150. Haven't tried it yet. Hope it is not a fake.Will let you know how it works. Also have a Senco attachment for my Dewalt corded screw gun. It is kind of awkward one handed as it is so long but works OK two handed.

Tried out the Makita 6834 the other day. Way better than the Senco adaptor. Don't need the allen wrench to change screw sizes. Great ballance. Lots of torque. Slower than the Dewalt but should be able to sink deck screws with it.
