Grabber Construction Products, an international distributor and manufacturer of premium fasteners and fastening systems, has introduced a new collated solution for steel framing contractors. The Grabber SuperDrive Mach1 is the first collated fastener system explicitly designed to meet the demands of onsite and offsite light-gauge steel frame construction — offering unparalleled speed, precision, and efficiency.
The new SuperDrive Mach1 is the ideal solution for metal framing professionals looking to enhance productivity, improve installer safety, reduce material waste, and improve fastener precision.
“Everyone’s time is valuable, and workers on steel-frame projects are no exception,” said Jason Roxburgh, Grabber’s director of innovation. “Not only do the framers and fabricators want to get the job finished safely and quickly, the contractors and project managers are always looking for ways to save labor, reduce material waste, and produce a professionally finished, quality product. The SuperDrive Mach1 does that.”
The new Mach1 collated system easily attaches to a Makita or DeWalt impact driver, versus a screw gun, which was one of the benefits developed with steel framers in mind.
The tool’s advanced features also include a no-slip tip, reversible feed track (for right or left-handed workers), SureLock fine depth adjustment, quick removal strap, and a compact and durable design that includes pass-through spaces for the impact driver’s LED lights. The tool is compatible with Grabber’s SuperDrive 7/16 to 7/8-inch collated screws.
The SuperDrive Mach1’s lightweight and ergonomic design reduces the amount of time spent on screw handling, making it a safer option for professionals who would use it for extended periods of time. The design also prevents wasted or dropped fasteners. The Mach1 has been tested to perform up to five-times faster than the same job with bulk screws.
Additionally, the precision and no-slip tip of the new system reduces the need for the extra step of using clamps.
