Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Only had it a couple of days but really impressed. Same old story but wish I'd bought one years ago. All the times I spent with a plaster board on my head pushed against the ceiling while I tried not to drop screws everywhere. This makes it so easy. A sliding scale adjusts for the screw size with a fine adjustment dial for screw depth. Providing it doesn't jam on a regular basis it should pay for itself within a few days as it makes screwing boards so much quicker. Collated screws are more expensive but the increased speed makes it worth it. Fantastic tool, just need to find a carry case now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Had heard bad things about the Makita Collated guns - but everything else we have is Makita so took the plunge figuring if it wasn't any good it could go back. Well its arrived this morning and already we've put up 20 plaster boards with it - setting it up was relatively easy as the instructions were fairly clear. Put the first screw in tentatively and it was a bit proud. We all looked at each other and thought 'well thats not going to speed things up'. Second screw we put in we pushed it a bit harder and the screw went straight in, nice and below the surface. Did the whole sheet in about 30 seconds! So the trick is, read the manual, buy good quality screws and use a firm but strong push and off you go. Very pleased with it and its going to make jobs a lot quicker. Only thing is the listing says it comes with a carry case and it doesn't!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Valve and Effective I'd read a few bad reviews about the Makita, but given the brand is strong and the price was good for this bare model I thought I'd give it a go. So, I've done about 4000 screws with this gun and its speeded up my board tacking massively. The issues highlighted in other reviews were mainly concerned with jamming, this does happen, but only for a reason, there's no fault with the gun, its just id say a bit sensitive to poor use/workmanship. If you set up the screw length correctly and adjust if you have problems, then set up the depth gauge following a bit of trial and error it works great. Id say its not as good as the more expensive models, especially the design of the head or tip is too large, so if it does jam you end up with a screw driven into the inside of the head which is tricky to free. But this will only happen if its not set up correctly. You also have to watch not to put the driver into reverse by accident then wonder why the screws don't go in. The head has angled corners to do close in screws, these will need to be finished off with a normal screw gun. The drill must be kept in line with the screw to drive it perfectly...but that's obvious. Makita could design a better head that allows closer to corner work and has less frame to get jammed in. Like their competitors have. Also, mine didn't come in a carry case although that's mentioned in the specification. This is really annoying as who want to leave tools banking around the back of the van. So if you want to spend £200 rather than £500 and you are probably a more occasional user then this is a good screw gun. If you buy it for your plasterers and their a bit 'bull in a china shop' about tacking then you may hear a lot of swearing about jams.

Best answer
This model does not come with any batteries but the model DFR550RMJ does but unsure if screwfix supplies this item. (I realise question was a while ago but wish to inform future people.)
