I prefer the jacks/pick on the inside when possible.

Always on the inside. Too far away when on the outside.

Can we go back to this topic for a moment? On our current project, we have about 3200 SF of subfloor to screw down. Is PamFast the go-to for this? What are the other options?

It depends on high your putting the pick!
Up high, it's outside, down low it's inside.

I hate the plank on the outside. I always feel like it's going to fall.

also how can someone get around the plank on the front? crawl on to the plank or climb from the back?
I don't have much experience using them.

I fought the Pam because of their proprietary screws at first...but damn they are worth it!! We ran a Senco for a long time. We just installed 3100 sq ft of Advantech with that setup in the picture.

We were getting 20 sheets a battery which is also approx 1 box of screws. That was also holding the trigger on constant when driving screws.

For the entire job I might have had 2 dozen strip outs. That is mostly because the Advantech is so dense sometimes the screw just doesnt go in straight.

That Dewalt was absolutely perfect. It runs at 2500 rpm and didn't miss a beat. Also the bits last forever and 1 comes in every box.

Inside until the jacks hit the wall, then I go to the outside if I have to. Usually I don’t because I keep pulling the ladders out at the bottom until it’s really nice and springy.

If you have the ladder pitched properly, getting under it with the jack inside is perilous at best. I generally want use of the entire length of plank/pick, so that doesn't play for me.

I put the jacks on the outside, and adjust ladder height according to what I need to reach.

As for getting up onto the plank, I'm a skinny monkey. No problem. Sometimes put up an extra ladder for the chubsters--if they even have enough guts to dance a plank like that. :

You can use other screws with the PAM drive. I didnít have time to get a box of PAM screws from the yard today and ran the cheap griprite ones from the Depot through it instead. Zero issues.

You guys are doing that a little differently than I've been framing them by not carrying the subfloor over the sill plate on foundation. It is nice being you eliminate a layer of 2x. We both still need to make sure subfloor to sill is aligned properly so as to maintain equal stud length on exterior wall to interior walls.

Looking good.

My Makita runs at 2,500rpms and only goes on when the bit is engaged

It works nice and as long as it's all done right turns out ideal. Really with the perimeter fully blocked it makes for a really solid floor. Really only sucks for the electrician... can't bring anything up from below.

I asked before, but did you still install a rimboard on the ledger at joist ends, or bridging? We eliminated both on our last at the builder's request being subfloor was fastened to sill in proximity to joist ends.
