Overview

Editor's Review: Driving Solo

review date: July 1, 2008

I used to hang drywall by lifting the sheet and securing the perimeter with nails. Then, to secure the field, I had two free hands: one to hold the screw and one to hold the driver. Of course, I needed a third hand to manage the cord. That all changed when I bought a cordless driver with collated fasteners. Senco’s 18v DuraSpin driver (www.senco.com) hangs on my belt within easy reach.

It weighs about the same as a corded driver, but it doesn’t have a cord to contend with. As on my corded driver, the internal clutch releases before the screw is overdriven and can break the drywall board’s surface. The best feature is the collated strip of fasteners that enables me to drive screws with one hand while my other hand holds or braces the drywall. The strip holds enough 11⁄4-in. screws to secure one sheet. The DuraSpin costs $260 and also comes in a 14v model.
