Cordless Brad Nailer Barre VT

DeWalt's new DC608 isn't the first cordless brad nailer, but it is one of the best. The big advantage of going cordless, of course, is that you don't need a compressor or gas cartridges, and there's no air hose to deal with.

Cordless Brad Nailer

Cordless Brad Nailer

 

    

DeWalt's new DC608 isn't the first cordless brad nailer, but it is one of the best. The big advantage of going cordless, of course, is that you don't need a compressor or gas cartridges, and there's no air hose to deal with. The DC608 employs a mechanical flywheel to drive nails. Unlike other flywheel-powered nailers that require a second to ramp up to speed, the DC608 fires instantly every time you pull the trigger, and its 18-volt battery delivers enough oomph to drive and set 2-in. brads into all but the hardest hardwoods—that's plenty of power. The DC608 accepts 18-gauge brads from 5/8-in. to 2-in. It has a 12-stop drive-depth adjustment and a helpful task light. It offers sequential and bump firing modes and is equipped with a lock switch to prevent unintentional firing. The downsides of going cordless are increased weight and larger size: The DC608 weighs 7-1/2 lbs., over twice as much as most air-powered brad nailers. And like other cordless nailers, the DC608 is significantly larger than its air-powered cousins. The DC608K includes the nailer, one 18-volt NiCd battery and a 1-hour charger.
