High Torque, Lower top speed

,
January 16, 2012
By Johnny814
from CT
"I've used this product for a variety of jobs including decking, drywall, cement board, and a variety of carpenty projects around the house. The higher torque is great, the only trade off is a lower top speed. If you are only going to use it for drywall, you might not want the decking model, but if you are going to drive 4 inch decking screws into wet wood, this does a great job."

A tool your wife can appreciate

,
April 21, 2008
By Kaptain
from Lake Villa, IL
"I bought my DeWalt Deck/Drywall Driver a few years back. My wife thought it was a stupid waste of money, until she saw how fast and easy it was to use and no nails popping up on our deck. (no more having to go back every year and pound those nails back down.) I have used it on all types of decking and drywall and I have no complaints. It is very easy to adjust for different materials."

Good all purpose driver

,
January 21, 2008
By famousbaconsandwich
from Broomall, PA
"I bought this tool for exactly its designated purpose, deck / drywall. It does quite well in both areas, but better at decks. The only reason I say that is that it runs at a lower speed than the dedicated drywall drivers. Ok for me because I'm not too fast at running drywall screws and the lower speed gives me more control. No doubt a powerful unit as I have sheared off a few screw heads. I could only wish for two improvements; a wider belt clip and an all aluminum nose."
