Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced Timber Drive—a first-of-its kind, heavy-duty structural fastening system designed for stand-up, semi-automatic operation while driving 3” to 6-1/4” structural screws.
Ideal for heavy-duty jobs that require repetitive fastening, such as decks, docks and floors, as well as for fastening metal straps to wood, engineered wood, or mass timber panels, the system’s ergonomic design makes it a faster, easier way to work. A patent-pending drop-feed loader allows for semi-automatic driving of a wide variety of Simpson Strong-Tie fasteners.
Engineered to vertically drive large structural screws without the operator having to bend over, the system causes less fatigue for knees, back and shoulders, increasing user comfort, speed and productivity.
The tool has four adjustable countersink depth settings, two interchangeable nosepieces that accommodate either face-screwing or connector fastening, and a positive placement tip that locates connector holes and provides true, straight, perpendicular driving when fastening metal straps to mass timber panels.
