Built for extremely fast, efficient and accurate installs
Festool USA and Festool Canada has just introduced the DWC 18, a high-speed, 18v, collated drywall gun. The DWC 18 is equipped with a magazine attachment for using commonly available collated screws, on-demand push and drive system (no need to hold the trigger), electronic cut-off, precision depth control, user-serviceable magazine, and an EC TEC brushless motor. The DWC 18 is quiet, efficient, and accurate, for faster installs with less fatigue for any drywalling application.
“Because the DWC 18 is the first drywall gun that Festool is introducing in North America, we set the design bar extraordinarily high,” says Leo Zirkler, Vice President of Marketing. “It was purpose-built to actually make hard work less hard – it’s much quieter, faster and accurate than anything else we’ve seen – so you can run the tool for longer periods of time without as much fatigue.”
The DWC 18 is part of Festool’s Power Select platform, and can be purchased with [DWC Plus] or without [DWC Basic] the charger and two 18v 5.2 Ah Li batteries. DWC 18 tool highlights include:
Magazine (Included in both Basic and Plus)
Auto-feed magazine (included with DWC Basic and DWC Plus versions) features tool-free removal, precision depth control, quick-release button for removing collated screw strips, and field strip capability for easy maintenance and long-life.
Accuracy – Sink screws consistently and precisely (to 1/256”) with mechanical and electronic depth control with automatic cut-off to prevent overdriven fasteners saving material as well as time in re-work to achieve quality results.
Efficiency – With motor speed of 4,500 RPM, coupled with the auto-feed magazine using collated screws, makes fast work of hanging sheets while the impulse-drive functionality provides exceptional battery life.
Durability - EC TEC brushless motor technology, robust internal parts, and serviceable magazine, the DWC 18 is built for heavy-duty fastening work in the most demanding applications and backed by the Festool-exclusive Service All Inclusive featuring a three-year warranty.
