this gun has been a constant part of my tool inventory for over 8 years now. the dewalt dw979-k is a hard tool to beat in the metal stud framer’s/drywaller’s world. the combination of the speed, weight and versatility of this screwgun is unrivaled on any commercial jobsite in my opinion. i demand more than i should from this gun, but it has never let me down. dropped from the top of a 22′ parapit wall, my dw979-k is still running strong. i am on the third set of batteries for my dw979-k and the trigger is finally developing a short in it, this thing just wont die. a very durable, reliable companion, i just wont do without one.

MUCH LITER THEN THE 18V, BUT WITH ALL THE POEWR YOU WILL NEED. ITS A LITTLE SLOWER THEN A CORDED GUN BUT LEAVES YOU FREE TO MOVE AROUND. IF YOU DO ROCK GET ONE YOU WILL LOVE IT. IT IS A LITTLE PRICEY BUT IF YOUR USEING IT TO MAKE MONEY IT WILL PAY YOU BACK ON EVERY JOB.

WOW. Using this screwdriver kit was easily the most intense and enlightening experience I’ve had since going to Waterworld in Denver.(…)
Sad to see it go
I have owned 10 of these 979 and have had great luck with them, but between dewalt not having a local repair shop anymore and the discontinuing of this tool I will be lost. I have recently purchased a 18 volt dewalt cordless screwgun but it is too heavy for me to want to carry all day. How bout a lithium 20 volt cordless screwgun for the year 2013 lets move forward DEWALT not backwards to heavier tools. Sorry to see it go. I use a bosch cordless router also and they quit making them too. What is up with this world cordless or nothing.
Love it so far

I have reasantly bought this screw gun. It took a little while to adjust to the slower RPM’s compared to my corded screw gun but now that I am used to it I love it. The only reason I would not give it five stars is because I do not know about its durability. It has done away with the need for one cord and that is a big plus as anyone in the construction business knows.
