CINCINNATI – Senco’s iconic DuraSpin screw system is evolving to a new level of speed, power and efficiency.

Senco Introduces Next Generation DuraSpin Auto-Feed ScrewdriverThis spring the company is introducing the next generation of its 2” auto-feed screwdrivers in traditional corded versions as well as new, compact 18-volt Li-ion battery powered units that can drive between 500 to 700 screws per charge, depending on the screw length and substrate.

Enhancements to the line include higher torque motors, application-specific tool speeds (2500 or 5000 RPM), a variable speed trigger with lock and reverse options, and a patent-pending corner-fit feed system, for better access and screw placement in tight spaces. A locking depth of drive adjustment regulates the precise depth needed for flush drives or countersinking screws.

Other DuraSpin features include a tool-free screw length adjustment (1” to 2”) and a belt hook. The tools are ergonomically designed for use with one hand, however, a cushioned second hand grip helps minimize wrist and arm fatigue by reducing the exertion needed to complete each drive.

“Senco is focused on improving power, performance and productivity on the jobsite. The new DuraSpin is the perfect example of our mission in action,” says Senco product manager Mike Desmond. ”Whether you’re installing drywall, subfloor, sheathing, wood or composite decking, or fastening metal to metal, DuraSpin’s auto-feed screw systems eliminate the need to load and position fasteners individually, minimizing screw waste and cutting down on installation time by up to 30 percent.”

Senco has also upgraded the battery in the new cordless DuraSpin models, replacing the Ni-Cd 14.4V batteries used on earlier versions with the same 18V Li-ion battery that is used on Senco’s Fusion cordless pneumatic nailers. “Senco is streamlining the power platform to save our customers time and money,” adds Desmond.
