Brushless Lithium Ion Drywall Screwgun
New to its 20V MAX* line of power tools, DeWalt announces the launch of the DCF620 20V MAX* XR™ Brushless Lithium Ion Drywall Screwgun with Extreme Runtime, which allows drywall carpenters to Get More Done™ without power cords. The new drywall screwgun is ideal for both residential and commercial drywall hanging applications—driving screws into both wood and steel studs.
Featuring a DeWalt-built brushless motor, the DCF620 will be available with either 2 2.0Ah (DCF620D2) or 2 4.0Ah (DCF620M2) XRTM high capacity lithium ion battery packs with fuel gauges. One 2.0Ah battery (DCB203) allows the user to hang up to 45 sheets** while one 4.0Ah battery (DCB204) allows the user to hang up to 58 sheets***. For users already invested in the 20V MAX* system, the screwgun will also be available as a bare tool (DCF620B).
In addition to the convenience and time savings associated with not dragging around a cord, the DCF620 cordless screwgun also offers users 4,400 RPM [no load speed], which is the speed expected of a corded screwgun, in a cordless package. The screwgun packs high performance into a small, lightweight package weighing only 3.3 lbs with a DeWalt 2.0Ah battery pack, and measuring only 8 3/4 " in head length (both shorter and lighter than DeWalt’s leading corded screwgun offering). Other features include an adjustable driving depth nosecone that locks to the tool, a trigger lock-on switch, an LED light with 20 second delay, and a belt clip.
A Collated Screw Auto-Feed Magazine Attachment (DCF6201) will be available separately for users looking to drive collated strips of screws. Collated screw systems allow users to work fast, while minimizing dropped/wasted screws. The DCF620 cordless screwgun can be converted to and from an autofeed system with the new DCF6201 magazine attachment without using a tool. The attachment is capable of driving collated screws up to 2” in length and is compatible with most major screw strip brands on the market.
The new DCF620 20V MAX* Brushless Lithium Ion Drywall Screwgun with Extreme Runtime will be available in April everywhere DeWalt products are sold. The DCF620 is sold as a bare unit (DCF620B: $139), kitted with 2 20V MAX* Lithium Ion 2.0Ah batteries (DCF620D2: $199), or kitted with two 4.0Ah Lithium Ion batteries (DCF620M2: $269). The screwgun has a 3 year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract and a 90-day money-back guarantee. The collated magazine attachment (DCF6201: $99) will be sold separately.
