The new Senco DS215-XP 2″ Cordless Auto-Feed Screw Driver Kit is on the market featuring an upgraded battery. The new 18V 3.0 Ah Lithium-Ion battery delivers up to 1,400 drives per charge. the 3.0 Ah batteries is a welcome step forward from their 1.5 Ah batteries. In addition to the extended run time, users get the same built-in fuel gauge for an easy check of the remaining charge.
The new Duraspin 2-inch auto-feed screw driver features a high speed motor which is designed for drywall, sheathing, cement board, underlayment, and sub-flooring applications. It features a corner-fit indexing technology that eliminates the screw placement challenges of auto-feed screwguns. The Duraspin is compatible with Senco’s recently announced Mantis Deck Clip system.
The Senco DS215-XP boasts a no load speed of 5,000 RPM and 60 inch pounds of torque, which is plenty for its design applications. It will drive 1″ – 2″ screws of the #6 – #8 diameter range.
“Screw driving systems like the new Senco DS215-XP don’t require the kind of power that you need in a circular saw or rotary hammer, so screw guns have been able to get away with smaller battery packs. It’s great to see Senco move up to the 3.0 amp hour class, doubling the run time of the 1.5 amp hour model. For pros that are used to swapping batteries several times a day, a lunch break charge will now be all you need.”
