One interesting feature included in the M18 Fuel drywall screw gun is the Auto Start Mode that when selected activates the motor only when the screw makes contact with drywall. This will result in noise reduction as the motor is not constantly running and also result in better runtime than compared to not in the Auto Start Mode. This mode appears to be similar to the excellent push  drive mode on the Makita 18V brushless drywall screwdriver.

  • capable of cutting up to 50 outlet boxes per 1.5Ah battery

The M18 Cut-Out Tool features a brushed motor which is the norm as other brands use brushed motors on their cordless cut out tools and the M18 Fuel Drywall screw gun features a brushless motor for greater efficiency and runtime.
