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 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 lb. 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 three-year limited warranty.

  • Engine design allows the tool to work as fast as the end user with consistent nail penetration into both soft and hard joints
  • Sequential operating mode allows for precision placement and the bump operating mode provides the user with production speed
  • Straight magazine, accepts 18-gauge nails ranging in legths from 5/8 in. to 2 in.
  • Easy access to the nosepiece for the removal of jammed nails without the use of screwdrivers or tool wrenches
  • Part of the XRP DEWALT cordless system
  • Contact trip lock-off allows trigger to be disabled when not in use
  • Integrated LED lights for long life and durability
  • Top cap is impact resistant and easy to remove for troubleshooting
  • Provides increased portability and versatility on the job-site
  • Increased visibility and durability along with protection for work-surface from the contact-trip
  • 12 position dial allows the user to move between applications without having to re-acquire exact depth setting
  • Fully enclosed, box style magazine, keep dust and debris out of the magazine preventing the tool from malfunctioning
  • Batteries and chargers sold separately, this tool works with these batteries (DC9096, DC9180) and chargers (DCB103, DW9117, DC9310, DC9319, DC9320, DC012)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest idea ever I'm a hobby furniture builder. This a GREAT tool. It works as well or better than my air guns that I use with my compressor. There's no compressor to carry around, hoses to get tangled. Just take it wherever you need to use it. And the ability to use 5/8 to 2 inch nails makes it even better. I have to change nail guns to use this variety of nails with the compressor nail guns. There's also the ability to adjust the strength of the gun to accommodate the different size nails, depending on the wood you're using (hardwood or softwood). And, the batteries for my DeWalt 18V drill fit this tool so that makes it a smart buy. What I'm waiting on now is a cordless router. Hope someone takes the hit. November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific Tool Great little nail gun. We are using it during our renovatoin and it's versitility with the variable brad sizes is just what we need. Trim, shleving and repairs - this little jewel makes short work of what would otherwsie be a time consuming project. Powerful and fast!. We have other Dewalt tools with the same battery pack so we just switch the pack when the need the other tools. The only thing that would have made this better would have been if it came with the battery pack for the same price. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit for Purpose lots of shots per charge so great for weekend user. Uses same batteries& charger as my drill/ driver so is a good complement to the tool bag. I thought was heavy at first but you get used to that. October 14, 2014
