Dewalt DC608B Review

The Dewalt DC608B Brad nailer introduction.  Very, very cool – the new Dewalt DC608B Brad is completely battery powered. No air hoses, power cords, or fuel cells required. And the battery powered DC608b is powerful enough for the hardest types of woods, and an adjustable knob lets you control the depth for softer woods.

Dewalt DC608B Review

Finally a battery powered nail gun that can be used anywhere. The air hose or power cord on traditional nailers is cumbersome and limiting. The cord free design on the Dewalt DC608B lets you work anywhere, free from power sources and compressors.

The Dewalt DC608B nailer makes quick work of window jams, baseboard, crown molding, chair rail molding, or even paneling. A quick adjustment knob on the tool allows the user to quickly adjust depth control when moving between different thickness and strengths of wood. The brad nailer also can be operated in two different modes, sequential or single shot, and can also be easily adjusted on the tool.

The tapered nose and cord free design allow tight squeezes such as toe kicks or nailing inside a cabinet. The nosepiece is easily opened to remove jammed brad nails with no tools. The fully enclosed magazine keeps debris out of the gun, reducing the rate of a malfunction.

This model can be purchased with and with out the necessary battery and recharger. Other 18v Dewalt batteries you might own for other tools are compatible with this unit.

Included in the box is the Dewalt DC608B, safety goggles, and manual. Depending on which kit you buy, is not included. It’s compatible with the DC9096 18-volt XRP battery pack and DW9117 15-minute charger. If you want this Dewalt model then the Dewalt DC608k kit includes battery and charger.

Final comments about the Dewalt DC608B Brad Nailer

In summary from this  Dewalt DC608B review, it is an excellent choice if you are searching for a cordless brad nailer. The battery powered design saves the added expense of fuel cells that other cordless nailers require.  The DC608B is a little bulkier then some of our competitors, however that’s yet to yield any problems for us. The powerful battery powered nailer has performed just as well as pneumatic brad nailer we’ve used, and is surprisingly quiet! We don’t have much negative feedback except for the size. If you are looking for a new brad nailer, this is could be the one.
