Hitachi wants to help save your back — if you’re a subfloor, decking, or drywall installer, that is. Their new W6V4SD (gotta love those Hitachi product numbers) SuperDrive Collated Screw System is a low-power corded drill with a 20″ special extension to make driving drywall screws a breeze.
The drill’s 81.5 in-lbs. torque rating is fine for fastener driving, and its 6.6A motor should stand up to heavy contractor use. But what really makes the system cool is its SuperDrive module, which can fasten 3/4″ to 3″ screws without swapping attachments. The module also uses the Makita’s LOX bit system, which provides 8 contact points between the bit and screw to perform the same fastening tasks with less user downpressure.
The drill, extension, and SuperDrive module are all covered in a soft elastomer compound, which provides a solid and comfortable grip.
Street pricing starts around $255.
