TyRex,LLC introduces the TY5100 auto-feed screwdriver with speeds of up to 5000 RPM for increased productivity in commercial construction applications. Featuring a fully-integrated design, the TY5100 offers better balance and smooth operation which means less user fatigue than traditional attachment-type tools. A patented Corner-Fit feed system allows for placement of screws in corners and around obstructions, while a patented clutch disengages when screw is sufficiently set-to eliminate stripped out heads and prolong bit life. The variable speed trigger allows precision fastening at speeds from 0-5000 RPM, and “feathering” of fasteners for improved control. This new high-speed corded auto-feed screwdriver is ideal for commercial constuction projects like installation of exterior gypsum sheathing, interior drywall, metal stud and truss farming, wood sheathing, cement board, underlayment, as well as crating, pallet manufacturing and more.
Weighing less than 5 pounds, with a width of just 3 inches, the TY5100 is easy to handle. Its one-hand bit release design allows the user to change out bits quickly. Fastener depth of drive is easily adjusted, and a complete set of bits is included, with an on-boardâ€ nosepiece wrench. A variety of 1 ¼-inch to 2-inch screws in #6 and #8 diameters are available for a full range of commercial fastening applications.
Every aspect of the TY5100 is designed to boost productivity on commercial construction projectsâ€ says TyRex Brand President Bryan Humpert. The speed of this tool changes the game for auto-feed screw fastening. It allows any user the ability to operate at a faster productivity rate than an expert using traditional methods. Our lightweight, integrated design eliminates attachments, while better balance and a streamlined design reduce worker fatigue. And our patented clutch design eliminates the stripping of screws and helps bits to last longer saving both time and money.â€
