Screw Gun Showdown - Simpson's Quik Drive Screw System

February is remodeling month at Nail Gun Depot - and what better way to celebrate remodeling month than by kicking off our FIRST-EVER Screw Gun Showdown. If you work in a renovation or remodeling trade, chances are you've used either a Quik Drive « screw system and/or a Senco DuraSpin « screw gun. Used for drywall installation, deck building, metal roofing, general construction and much more - both screw systems are top-rated in their class - but which one is right for you? You can learn more about Simpson's Quik Drive, and Senco's DuraSpin - right here on the Nail Gun Network.
Screw Gun Showdown
For part-one in our Screw Gun Showdown series, let's take an in-depth look at Quik Drive's screw fastening systems - featuring some of their top-rated tools. Per Simpson Strong-Tie's website, Quik Drive is designed to perform optimally when used for the following applications: subflooring/sheathing, decks/docks, drywall, fiberglass-backed gypsum sheathing, fiber-cement siding, standing-seam metal roofing, exposed fastener metal roofing, tile roofing, steel framing, steel decking, underlayment, truck beds, crating, truss ply fastening, and ledgers on steel - among others. With Simpson screw fastening tools, the type of application you fasten determines the type of Quik Drive system you require.
Quik Drive Apps
Different from Senco's DuraSpin, which we will cover in the second part of this series, Quik Drive screw systems are customizable, composed of various components that are paired to tackle a specific set of applications. A traditional Quik Drive system consists of three main components - a motor, an extension (for applications that require bending or reaching), and an attachment (designed for a specific application). The motor is relatively universal, and is more or less based on user preference - Nail Gun Depot specializes in Makita-powered screw gun motors for Quik Drive. The extension arm is based on the type of application you are screwing into place, but is not necessarily required - for example, you might not use an extension for drywall installation, whereas you would for deck fabrication. The most unique piece to the puzzle, the attachment, determines what you will be fastening. Quik Drive attachments vary depending on the type of fastener an application requires - just think of each Quik Drive kit like pairing wine and cheese.
