Product Overview

The DEWALT DC608B Cordless Brad Nailer combines the precision of hand nailing with the speed and ease of pneumatic nailing. With this one compact, portable tool, you can drive brads ranging in length from 5/8 in. to 2 in. as rapidly as five brads per second. And best of all: no compressor to buy and no air hose to drag around. The 7.4 lbs. tool is powered by a rechargeable 18-Volt battery and shoots readily available 18-Gauge brads. Its straight, box-style magazine holds 110 brads and is specially designed to seal out dust and debris that can cause misfires. The DC608B can shoot nails through softwood, hardwood and plywood and other sheet goods. It's the perfect tool for trim carpenters, cabinetmakers and others who routinely install baseboard, shoe, crown and chair rail moldings, paneling and window and door casings and jambs. The tool's narrow, tapered nose fits into tight spaces, such as under toekicks and inside of cabinets and drawers. Choose between two operating modes: Sequential for one-at-a-time nailing, or high-speed bump firing for rapid production work. Other features include: precise depth-control mechanism, swing-open nosepiece for clearing jams, a reversible belt hook, safety contact lock-off that disables the trigger. It's backed by DEWALT's 90-day money-back guarantee and 3-year limited warranty.

Answer: 
18 Volt tools can use same battery chargers which makes this line of DeWalt Cordless tools very handy. I have both single chargers and also bought the double charger so I can have two batteries charging at once.

Answer: 
I'm not sure, I am using DW 9099, but I also have a DW9098 and that on will not work, I was told all I needed is a 18v battery, I guess that's no so. Good luck (TonyP)

Answer: 
The new charger will not accept the older 18v battery. However both types of batteries, the older DW3099 and DC9096 will work just fine in any DW tool. Exculiding of course the 20v tools and the DW Track saw.

No. The Nailer will shoot;5/8", 3/4",1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-3/4" & 2", 18 gauge brad nails. All of those sizes, except 3/4", are available from Dewalt, although any 18 gauge straight brad nail will work with this tool.

The description says this Brad nailer shoots 5/8" to 2" sized brads. Not sure where you buy the brads and if it accepts universal types.

I purchased this nailer and charged my DW 9116 7.2-18V batteries that I have had for several years. It shot about four nails then quit. I changed the other battery I the same thing happened. I read this battery is supposed to be compatible with this nailer. Is this unit defective or do I need a different battery?

Battery

Asked by

December 30, 2015
I just purchased the Dc608 18V nail gun. I have two batteries that I thought would be comparable. They are older batteries DC9098 with the charger DW9116 7.2 - 18V charger. I read somewhere that these would work. But when I put the charged battery on the nailer I get around four shots then nothing. Do you think this is the battery or a defective nail guy?

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Should have done this a long time ago Skeptical when I first bought, but after using for the first time.. I loaded up the compressor, air hose and pneumatic nail gun just in case. I was extremely pleased with how well the gun worked. This gun eliminated the pain of having to drag a hose around. Trimmed out two entire rooms and did not have to change the battery. I have used the nail gun for four more jobs since and it works great. I have left the compressor and air hose at home for the last four jobs without hesitation. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 18Volt DeWalt Brad Nailer Love the 18 Volt tools of which I have MANY of them. Like interchanging the batteries so everything works together. Best tools being cordless they make! April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love it Works as well as air and better than co2 nailer .... March 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not happy. the nailer did not work very well. but i will try again soon March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Additional Purchase I purchased the nailer to do trim work with cabinets and trim around the house. It has been excellent to do what I need to do. I have a lot of 18 volt DeWalt tools now so it was a good value to add to what I already have. I do highly recommend this to anyone. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeWalt cordless 18-Volt cordless Brad Nailer Purchase this nailer to add mountain laurel to a driveway gate that is 300 ft. from the nearest AC outlet. I already have DeWalt 18V cordless tools and 4 18Volt batteries. This tool did a great job. I used 1.5 inch brad nails and they set nicely just below the surface of the 1 x 4s I was using, and this was the tool straight out of the box. Couldn't be happier with it's performance. January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best new Product in YEARS This cordless brad nailer is the best new product I've bought in years. Seamless nailing on the baseboard trim I've used it on. Looking around the house for more projects !! January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is an industrial grade tool that performed up to my expectations. I justified buying this brad nailer specifically to help build pull-out drawer modules to replace the shelves in my kitchen lower cabinets (see attached photos). The assembly concept was simple: cut the 1/2 inch plywood parts to size, dry erect the module by holding the joints in place with strips of masking tape, open each joint sequentially and coat the joint surfaces with carpenters glue and finally, manually hold the assembled joint in place while driving in 2" 18 gage brads. This assembly procedure eliminated the need for clamps and the associated inconvenience of delays during assembly. The brads held the joints in place while the glue was setting. The project was the successful, the drawers are installed and my wife is pleased. As for the DeWalt brad nailed, its performance was flawless. It is an industrial grade design and performed accordingly. I probably drove two or three hundred brads during assembly of three modules and accompanying drawers with not a single miss fire or jam. Loading of the brads was simple. I particularly liked the built-in light that illuminated the work area and made the target easy to locate. The only potential negative was the weight of the nailer at 7 1/2 pounds but this was compensated by virtually no reaction at the piston grip when a brad was driven. Finally, the users manual covered all important performance areas in detail and was easily understood. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the performance of the tool. I'm looking for another nailer project. August 17, 2013
