Dewalt DW272 Review

by on August 24, 2013

Dewalt DW272 is a powerful drywall screwdriver that is not only very light, compact and easy to carry around, but also durable and reliable enough due to its all-metal gear box which is especially designed for increased reliability and jobsite durability. In this review you will find the pros and cons of this screwdriver, as well as its most notable features and functions:

The Pros

Unlike it happens with most tools of its kind, the DW272 is neither bulky nor expensive: as a matter of fact, this tool can be purchased on Amazon for no more than $94.99, thus making it one of the most cost-effective drywall screwdrivers on the market. The light weight coupled with excellent ergonomics will prevent hand fatigue and allow you to work for a prolonged period of time, while the heat-treated steel gears are designed to increase the life span of this screwdriver: this way, the screwdriver will be intact even when dropped on concrete.

The screwdriver also comes with a two finger trigger and a rubber grip that will give you greater control over the tool and increase the comfort as well. I personally love this tool, given the fact that it is so small yet so powerful at the same time, and it is perfect even for larger screws: you should be able to drive screws that are up to 3 inches in length, quickly and without the fuss.

The Cons

The only downside of this product is that as many users claim, the instructions manual is not detailed enough and the user will have to use the screwdriver long enough to get used to all its functions.

Features And Specifications

The product comes with a depth sensitive nosepiece, an eight feet cord and a 4,000 RPM motor that makes it a great addition to the kit of every handyman.
