The Ridgid Collated Screw Gun is a must have if you are doing projects that require a lot of screws. I recently picked up one of these screw guns and have used it several times already. It is quite a Time saver, and those in the trades know that time is money. I was torn between this actual gun and Senco Version as I am a fan of both. I decided to go with the ridgid screw gun, to save a few bucks, and they have always came through on their warranty for me. Senco screws work with the collated screw gun, and replacement tips are readily available at most stores. This was my first collated screw gun purchase so it did take a little getting used to, but once you get in rythm with this gun you can really move. This Ridgid Collated Screw Gun is also priced low enough where a do it yourselfer could still justify buying this for an upcoming project. Screwing down deckboards typically takes forever one at a time, but with this autofeed system you never miss a beat. It also is help for hanging drywall as well. That was my primary intent for buying this, and so far I am happy. Now I am more of a carpenter, and dont hang 1000’s of Square feet of drywall daily, and if I was I would probably recommend a higher priced collated screw gun, just for more durability. That being said though, for a couple rooms it is definitely worth the investment. Hanging rock by yourself is much easier.
Overall the ridgid collated screw gun, is really nice screw gun for the money. Whether youre building a deck, hanging drywall, or screwing down subfloor, this gun will save you time, money, and get your project done. For casual use this is the screw gun of choice. But overall this auto feed screw gun is a five star quality tool for those smaller projects.
