Mechanical manual caulk guns are inexpensive so what is the point of making a powered version? It can get tiring for those that have to lay down lots of caulk or construction adhesive and have several bottles to go through a day. That’s when it makes sense to get a powered caulk gun to make it easier for the worker and to save on hand fatigue. My motto is to work smarter, not harder and accomplish more work that way. Of course, these are completely overkill if they will be seldomly used and in that case, a mechanical manual one makes more sense.

Ryobi’s 18 volt caulk gun is powered by their 18V One+ batteries to take the strain from your fingers and uses a motor to push and drive the tube to lay down more caulk or adhesive. It will be heavier than a traditional mechanical caulk gun but it will greatly take the strain away from your working hand with up to 500 lbs of push force! Ryobi’s PCL901 model uses the more common 10 oz tubes and they say you’ll be able to dispense up to 200 tubes with only a single 2ah battery making the battery runtime pretty good in my opinion.

This caulk gun uses a variable speed trigger to control the discharge rate and also has what they call “anti-drip” technology that they say is designed to reduce mess and downtime between uses. There’s also a switch lock that helps prevent accidental startup and discharge. It has a removable carriage for easy cleaning and the collar is rotatable so that you can get the right angle when working in corners to better maneuver your way of getting caulking in there. It comes with Ryobi’s 3 year manufacturer warranty.

It will be available in October 2022 for $79 as a baretool.

I have the Milwaukee M12 caulk gun simply because it can use the 10oz and 1qt size tubes but just changing out the front end and rod. It was well worth it after the second use and my hands weren’t cramped up. I just wish ryobi would also off the same advantage as the m12 by using both the 10z and quart tubes.
