Just for the gun, (+ bats) it would cost me over $500 bucks. Here in canuck land.

let me guess, you got everything for under $500, down there in the land of the free

Congratulations though, It's sorta like welcoming a new member into the family eh':thumbup:

Got the same setup checkers and love it.
Here's some tips...
the strip catches in the magazine with 10 screws left as a warning
sometimes the empty screw strip end coils back into the magazine when doing corners-some tape across the top will keep it out
get some extra plastic end tips off Hilti because they wear

Congratulations on your purchase!

Thanks for the tips D's, I wonder why it catches on the tenth! That's ****ing crazy!
I'll make sure I tape it, that's how I fixed all my Sencos too.

Now if only they made a longer extension!

2Buck, $500 for the setup including a bucket of Tyrex 2" screws.

I have the Uk version.
SD 5000 A22 and the SMD 57

22 volts, 5000 RPM. Love it.
Why would you not use collated screws?

Yep these guys invented the multimaster. The patent expired so now everyone is making them. This one is German with a 3 year waranty so it should be the goods.
