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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Battery Charger

Will my DC9310 18 Volt charger work on this brad nailer?
Asked by: ToolLady
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.

Brad nail suzes

Does this gun only shoot 2 inch length brads nails?
Asked by: don
The gun shoots 5/8" up to 2" brads

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?
Asked by: Buch
I am using the DC9098 18V battery with a DW9116 charger as well and have not had any problems with battery life. You might want to have the batteries checked (under a load) to ensure they are still holding a charge (perhaps Batteries Plus could do that for you). As a secondary check... if the battery works normally with your other Dewalt power tools such as a drill, then you may, in-fact have a problem with the nailer.

Great tool - indispensable to cabinetmaking and light finish work. Was sent on time and arrived in great condition. Can easily use a 20v adapter so 20v batteries work with this nailer - since this model and size nailer are not made in 20v. Wonderful tool.

Works good, so far no jams have one problem that once it engage but I don't shoot it locks up and I have to take the battery out to get it to work again. Not sure the depth adjustment works very well. Still with these issue I like it and it's not to heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase The Dewalt 18 Volt brad nailer has been one of the best tools that I have purchased. Solid construction, flawless operation, and the fact that the battery is interchangeable with my other cordless Dewalt tools was a bonus!
