Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has received a Pro Tool Innovation Award (PTIA) in the Drills/Drivers-Decking, Cordless category for its Quik Drive® PRO200SG2 multipurpose system. A diverse panel of judges made up of contractors, construction business owners, tradespeople and media professionals voted on the most innovative construction and outdoor power equipment industry products throughout the world.
The new Quik Drive PRO200SG2 multipurpose system is equipped with a powerful DeWalt® cordless 2,000 rpm brushless driver motor and a lightweight extension for efficient and ergonomic stand-up driving. For the user, that means no cords, no trips, no errors. Combined with the company’s low-torque fasteners, the system delivers more screws faster per battery charge.
The judging panel noted that the tool “includes everything you need to get started except the fasteners you choose while keeping you cord-free and giving your back the relief of a standing position . . . making their stand-up decking system even more convenient.”
The cordless system eliminates the need for compressors, generators or power to run fastening equipment, thus slashing setup time. With the elimination of cord and hose maintenance and tangle, the system also reduces tripping and electrical shock hazards. It can be used either with or without the lightweight extension. The Quik Drive PRO200SG2 system includes the auto-feed attachment, battery charger, two lithium-ion batteries and a protective soft case.
