Dewalt DC628K Review

DeWalt is renowned for the quality and performance they bring to the power tool market and the DC628K XRP is no exception. This heavy duty nailgun has been designed for some serious work. The dual shot mode gives the user control over the shot rate, single nails or rapid fire for larger areas.

With a narrow nose tool head and LED lighting the De Walt DC628K XRP is ideal for working in tight poorly light areas, such as inside cupboards or closets, the DC628K XRP is also ideal for trim carpentry, base boards, moldings, paneling etc. but is also tough enough to take on the heavier work such as hardwood flooring, window and door casings for example.

The dewalt dc628k cordless angled finish nailer has the kick to tackle not only soft wood, but also ply wood, hard wood and other sheet products, making it a very versatile and practical nailer. Adding to the versatility of the nail gun is the ability to choose which size of nail used ranging from 1 ¼ inch to 2 ½ inch and this nailer has a specially designed rear load compartment which seals out dust and other debris, which can cause other machines to malfunction.

The 34 degree angled nails come on a handy magazine holding 110 nails, ready set a 34 degrees, which simply slot into the back of the gun and when you’re ready to change nail length, you simply slide out one magazine and insert another and you’re ready to go.

The safety lock off ensures the nail gun won’t fire off accidently, as the trigger is disabled.

Thanks to the tool free ‘jam’ clearing there is no downtime, searching for the appropriate tool and fiddling around releasing ‘jammed’ nails. The swing open nose makes clearing ‘jammed’ nails quick, safe and easy.

Another great bonus to the The De Walt DC628K is the tool free depth adjustment, simply turning the dial to one of the 6 pre-sets allows for accurate depth calculation and being tool free reduces downtime and stress. The no mar tip adds to the benefits of the DC628K XRP, ensuring the wood is protected and allowing you to produce a professional finish to the project every time.

The battery can be fully charged and ready to go in just one hour, although for those using the nailgun for prolonged periods it is generally recommended they purchase a spare battery, that way one can be on the go while the other is being charged, so reducing downtime and the frustration of getting part way through the job and having to wait till the battery recharges.
