Two readers have sent in tips that Dewalt is soon coming out with a new 20V Max brushless cordless drywall screwgun. As with other cordless screwguns, it’s fair to expect the new model to be built for high speed and maximum runtime. There will also be a collated magazine attachment that converts the tool to an auto-feed screwdriving system.
I’m not too up to date about drywall screwgun developments, so I did a bit of searching to see what else is out there.
I peeked at the Bosch specs (via their UK product page), and their new screwgun can drive in 3400 screws per charge.
Seeing as how I have never picked up a drywall screwgun in my life, I can’t really gauge how the two models stand against each other. You can still feel free to not like the DeWalt, but… The trigger lock is below the trigger, not above.
I’ve hung a ton of drywall in doing near 8 large basement jobs as well as asst remodeling work, but have never gotten the hang of using a drywall gun, plus – who wants to drag a cord? I do have the Hilti collated gun and it is invaluable and a huge timesaver for ceiling drywall especially.
Bought the Ridgid collated gun and it was crap – returned it after a few strips through it.
A few years back I bought an accessory driver bit that just chucks into a drill to drive drywall screws. You can remove the nose piece (see also the lock icon on the nose piece) DeWALT will also have an autofeed adapter (collated screws) that you can use with this gun. It’s not cordless but Bosch has a screwgun that has an optional auto-feed attachment.
I guess this was about a Dewalt screwgun so I guess I’ll say one relevant thing: does anyone know if Dewalt makes a similar auto-feed attachment or if any other companies make one? Bosch has a Cordless brush less drywall gun that can take that adapter you are talking about or be used to drive individual screws. Sorry jason i have that bosch adapter abd the screws go to deep … Lost the receipt and can bring it back , i will trow it as far as i can ! This drywall srewdrider does not last long and it is copycat from veryold hilti made model… Maybe hilti sold old patent or dewalt want to hit head to wall hard. Over in my top 5 favorite tools of 2013 post, Stix left a comment requesting a write-up that discusses the new tools I will be looking forward in 2014.
This was not an easy task, as there is very limited information available on upcoming tools. Bosch’s new 12V and 18V brushless drills and drivers are expected to be released in February of 2014.
The torque ratings of these products have been swinging back and forth, as testing of production models is still underway, but it looks like the new drills will provide comparable power and improved runtime compared to current brushed models. The 12V models look to be downright tiny, with Bosch describing them as the smallest and lightest drills and drivers in their class. Bosch will be releasing some nice new 12V tools in Europe, mainly a circular saw, jigsaw, and rotary tool, and I’m crossing my fingers that they will be released here as well. One thing we’ve been asked about numerous times is whether Dewalt is coming out with a 20V cordless miter saw.
For 2014, I am hoping to see greater availability of the new C3 models, additional brushless tools such as an impact driver at the least, and lower pricing on the brushless drill. Yes, and this is depressing for me as I bought into Makita as my tool lineup back in ’06 or so when they had close to the most 18V tools.


The other thing we liked was that the Milwaukee PEX tools allowed us to use our old Uponor expanding cones – saving us a bundle.
I contemplated mentioning the upcoming Makita 18V X2 saw, but I find it hard to be excited about anything Makita comes out with these days. I know Milwaukee was in a similar situation during the era of the v18 packs, and some people got burned by the change to the M18 line but the M18 line made Milwaukee competitive in the cordless tool market. The past few Dewalt sales associates I spoke to said that 12V tool sales were not particularly strong. I think Dewalt is going to go with compact 20v tools as the future, and 8v line might power some of their diagnostic tools in the future.
True about the lawn and garden brands but when it comes to the big professional brands it seems all the focus on r&d is on 12v and 18v lines. Additionally, because of the remote battery attachment, I may be able to interface to some other non-Makita tools, while leveraging my investment in the 18V LXT Platform. It’s really weird the Framing Nailer is for sale but there is no social media marketing or anything going on with it.
Sellers have the right to set their own prices independently, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be displayed or communicated to others. This amount includes seller specified US shipping charges as well as applicable international shipping, handling, and other fees.
Estimated delivery dates - opens in a new window or tab include seller's handling time, origin ZIP Code, destination ZIP Code and time of acceptance and will depend on shipping service selected and receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab. This item will be shipped through the Global Shipping Program and includes international tracking. Will usually ship within 1 business day of receiving cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab.

Dewalt posted a teaser image of the new DCF620 screwgun on their auto-load knife promo page, but no additional details followed. Driving in drywall screws is probably tedious enough without having to worry about tracking down the charger or spare batteries.
The exception seems to be what Milwaukee did with their Fuel brushless band saw, which looks to have been heavily inspired by their corded band saw design.
Apparently Bosch released a new brushless screwgun in Europe a couple of months ago, the GSR 18V-EC TE.
We haven’t seen or heard anything credibly, just a lot of questions and a vague tip or two here and there. I didn’t want there to be confusion or a false impression that related posts were part of the ad arrangement.
Of these tools, the brushless drill impressed me, although I find its price point to be a little high. The list overwhelmingly focuses on cordless tools because brands like to talk about their new cordless innovations in advance. Rather than create a whole line of supporting accessories, they made the tools fully compatible with Bosch’s OIS platform.
They have released a few interesting new tools these past few years, but Makita has become my LEAST FAVORITE power tool brand for a number of reasons.
It would be far better if they were straightforward with users, but a lot of users are still going to be angry.
It’s all bs and guesses by me though, but the last 12v tool they added was the reciprocating saw and the 12v radar wall scanner which was pulled from stores.


While they still sell and support 36 and 28v line ups you really don’t hear about anything new coming out for those lines. I may buy one and try to rig it to work with my dewalt batteries since it would not be cost effective for me to buy a battery and charger just for the fan.
After waiting on them to make a cordless ratchet for a while, I bailed and went with Milwaukee.
If you check your favorite Bosch distributor you should now be able find the new 12V 4.0Ah extended capacity battery. Because the seller's price on this item is below the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price" the manufacturer may not allow the seller to show you the seller's lower price until you take further action, such as clicking on a drop down menu, placing the item in your cart, or proceeding to checkout.
You can always simply remove the item from your cart or not proceed with checkout if you decide not to buy the item.
Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location. It was originally expected to be released in the USA in early 2013 but was inexplicably delayed. I would think that Dewalt would follow Milwaukee’s footsteps and release a cordless brushless circular saw first. Although outside my needs and budget, I’m sure electricians and other daily knockout punch users will be pleased to see the M18 driver hit the market.
I get when cordless circular saws came out they probably didn’t have the power for the bigger blade.
Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukee, Craftsman, Ryobi, and other brands all came out with 4.0Ah batteries that fit ALL of their respective 18V-class tools. Then again, now that Milwaukee has a full line of M12 brushless drills and drivers, and Bosch planning to release a few models, Dewalt might feel pressured to move faster. While no longer listed at Amazon, it looks like the nailer is now available at CPO as well as Toolbarn.
The steps required depend on the terms of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. I’ve been impressed with TTI-Milwaukee in that they do not seem to shy away from specialty professional markets. Is it more about keeping the tool compact it’s one of those things I would love to know the answer too.
I even wrote Bosch a letter and they responded that they will be sticking with their current 12v battery for now.
A quick search of both eBay and google turn up multiple places that claim to have it in stock.
Taking these steps allows eBay to show you the seller's great price consistent with eBay's goal of always bringing consumers like you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products.
