This is a plain, bare bones screw gun for drywall installation.

It has a soft start feature that helps the motor last longer since some people rather pull the trigger for every screw they shoot.

People who do tons of drywall just lock the trigger and keep driving one screw after the other.

It's designed to shoot screws in all day. Nothing fancy, no clutch, just a depth stop.

I actually use my clutched cordless drill for most drilling and general screwing. I only break this out for drywall. It has the advantage of being lighter weight with pretty decent balance.

If you're going to screw into something that's maybe questionable in strength might benefit from a clutched drill or a clutched screw gun or just going slow with this. These screw guns are really fast and since they're foremost intent is screwing into wood or steel studs having that type of adjustability really isn't required.

This is about the least expensive, no frills way to go for a screwgun and a brand that's been making these for a very long time. It's a good dedicated drywall screw gun.

For decks I might use a clutched gun or just one of the slower rpm screw guns that are geared for more torque to drive longer, fatter screws.

The Milwaukee drywall screwdriver is a priceless tool if you've got a job bigger than 1 sheet. The depth settings are convienient and have good granularity of adjustment. You may have to try a couple of brands of bits however. I've found that the bits with ridges on the blade faces work best. They allow you to be slightly off 90 degress (perp. to the wall surface) without camming out. The rubber finger grips on the top of the Milwaukee make it comfortable to handle. It's well balanced and powerful. It takes a few practice screws to get the hang of it but it's by all means worth the (money). You'll use it every chance you get!

The Milwaukee 6742-20 is the Best Drywall/General purpose screwdriver available Period! The US made one that is. Unfortunately, even the iconic Milwaukee brand succumbed to the "Made in China" Syndrome. More like a runaway disease at this point. More to the point. The first time I purchased the Milwaukee 6742-20 was in 2003. Right here on Amazon. The Tool proudly displayed Made In USA on its sticker. That tool lasted a grueling 7 years, doing everything from Drywall to Hardiebacker Cement board to multilayer Fiberock installations to even Decking and MDF. Even at 4000 rpm (not ideal for decking) and drywall to 18 and 16 gauge steel studs were no match for this gem. It's best feature is it's "Snap Action Clutch". The let off is so incredibly crisp with absolutely no grinding or head stripping no matter the depth. The tool is also very ergonomic in its dimensions, grip angles, balance and materials. Such as the rubber inserts and their placement on the handle and around the tool, the thickness and dimensions of the grip and weight distribution. Recently I was putting up some Hardiebacker cement board on Steel Studs using Cement Board screws for Steel Framing. All of a sudden I experienced an unusual pop at the end of the screw drive cycle, right before the head got seated. After that, the tool was not the same. It started stripping heads and would not seat heads flush. Thinking that my screw gun has lasted and performed so long and so well, I went on Amazon and was very pleased to find the same model still in production. I ordered it and two days later had it in my hands. The first thing I noticed, is the tool looks is exactly the same. The only difference, the "new" one, now displays Made in China on its sticker.Read more ›

I am becoming a huge fan of Milwaukee tools. They deliver more value per dollar than anything else I have found. I have an older Milwaukee screw gun and a new DeWalt screw gun and a very old Craftsman Professional that appears to be made my DeWalt. The new Milwaukee is the gun I reach for when I need to drive some screws with the heads embedded in a precise manner. I needed to hang about 1100 square feet of drywall on the ceiling of an old house. I was going over the top of an existing plaster over plaster board ceiling. The house was framed in with rough sawn green oak that was everything except straight. The plaster installers did a masterful job of making up the variation in the ceiling with a coat of plaster that varies in thickness from less than 1/2 inch up to about 1-1/4 inches over 1/2" plaster board. Therefore I had to use 2-3/4" screws going through very hard plaster of varying thickness into 50+ year old oak that is hard as nails. All my other screw guns would drive the screws, but seemed to have trouble setting the depth correctly. The Milwaukee has the best repeatability of depth under these conditions of any screw gun I own. They all work pretty good with new drywall over new studs, but when the going gets very tough, the Milwaukee really shines.
This gun is light and powerful and comes with a cord that is long and flexible. I don't know how they could make it any better.

Once again, Milwaukee delivers a quality tool. This gun is a vast improvement over their older, less balanced screw guns. It fits the hand well, is not overly heavy, and runs screws into either wood or metal studs without hesitation. The only complaint I have about this one versus the older models is the trigger lock. It's now a recessed button, which is very awkward to operate with one hand. But even the DeWalt's isn't that convenient, so this is my screw gun of choice. Plus, it has a 5 year limited warranty, which none of the competition can touch.
