Top tools: Festool 18V Drywall Gun
Festool has been manufacturing power tools since 1925, but the introduction of the DWC 18 marks the company’s first attempt at a drywall gun. This 18V, high-speed tool combines a brushless motor generating up to 4,500 rpm with an auto-feed screw magazine attachment to achieve faster installs with less fatigue. Electronic depth control with an automatic motor cut-off prevents overdriving. The DWC 18 comes with a charger and two 18V 5.2 Ah Li batteries and is compatible with Festool’s Power Select platform.
