Excerpt: The cordless drywall drill is great! I haven't met a dewalt product that I don't like yet. I am remodeling the whole house and used a corded drywall drill for the first floor, and couldn't be happier to get a cordless drywall drill for Christmas.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: WOW. Using this screwdriver kit was easily the most intense and enlightening experience I've had since going to Waterworld in Denver.(...) No problems, no banal subplots or overwrought dialogue, just one(...) good screwdriver gun.
