What are the differences between this framing nailer and the DeWalt DCN692? Why would one choose one over the other? I'm a do-it-yourselfer and I have built everything from a deck to an entire storage building and I'm looking for a cordless framing nailer.
Asked by: rutherian
This one uses standard 21 degree nails which are widely available and used in pnuematic nailers. The older models uses 33 degree paslode nails which are more expensive and less common.

DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion 21-Degree Cordless Framing Nailer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dewalt DCN21PLM1 works great for fencing, siding, sheathing, and decking applications. There ... The Dewalt DCN21PLM1 works great for fencing, siding, sheathing, and decking applications. There were 4 nail jams in about 1200 nails driven and a few that were left about 1/8 inch high. It had no problem driving 2 x .113, 2 3/8 x .120, and 3 x .120 inch ring shank galvanized nails. It did fail to sink 3 x .131 nails consistently in a framing application, so I am not ready to give up my pneumatic framing nailer just yet. It is a handy nailer to have around for small repair jobs so that you don't have to set up the compressor and hoses, especially if you don't have power nearby. Nail jams are easy to resolve by removing the front nose piece. Depth adjustment is also easy. Both sequential and bump firing work well. The nail gun is heavy and can be tiring when nailing above shoulder height. One star off for quality control. The first nailer purchased would not sink any nail over 2 inches. Returned it to Home Depot and the replacement is working great for my needs.

Just the thing when your job is too big for a hammer but not worth dragging out the air compressor. I can hand-hammer a few nails, but I'm out of practice. An air-nailer will bang a lot of nails with ease, but you have to drag-out a compressor and find power and rig a hose hanging off the air-nailer; fine for large work but a chore for mid-size jobs. This is a battery "air-nailer". A motor spins-up a flywheel and BAM hits the nail into the wood. That must be pretty tricky engineering, to make a bammer which will hold up. DeWalt is good at such machinery. All my other DeWalt tools have given complete satisfaction. I really like DeWalt's heavy-duty construction. A professional tool should take some accidental abuse. My initial test was with some very dense #1 SYP and the maximum 3.25" nails. Let the motor whine-up to full speed, less than 2 seconds. It sank every nail fine. I love the magazine latch! It is slim, will not snag on clothes, and is very easy to work, open or close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Powerful and Nimble! After about a month of good use I felt I had to share my excitement! I just wanted to say I have used other cordless framers in the past that dont even compare to the ability of the 21° framer. I ran through about 30 clips so far of 3 1/4 inch nails with no issues at all. It is very easy to adjust the depth right where it's needed. I found I liked the bump fire mode the most when testing so thats where it stayed. It charges right when you pull the trigger or depress the tip vs on single fire it does not charge when just pulling the trigger. My favorite part has to be how easy the spring mechanism is to opporated. You just pull it back to lock position and pull again to release with little effort needed compared to some others. I have always hated dragging air hose around and I am now one step closer to cutting the cord/hose. I will be sure to try the brad nailers next as I am very pleased with the framer. I hope a coil roofer is next on the list!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Gun - EXCEPT... I currently own both the DCN692M1 & now this DCN21PLM1. The main reason for uprading/replacing is because nails for the DCN692 are hard to procure & moreover, are not "code" in a growing # of municipalities. The DCN21 is a great gun itself & the only negative, I have observed thus far is the increased weight & especially the size- hence a one star deduction. The product/kit gets another star deduction for DeWalt being sooo cheap, as to not provide a Hard CARRY CASE. I can't even use the case, which did come with the DCN692, because the DCN21 is BIGger & just won't fit- even with modification, which I have done with other tools... C'm'on, DeWalt... care about your customers to at least give them the option to have hard carry cases (instead of the skimpy soft cases) on ALL of our expensive tools/investments, as we don't like them sloshing around, getting banged/scratched-up...

The nailer performed well for what we needed. It takes a second to ramp up before being ready to nail. I never had a bad nail shoot out, and the ramp up time never caused me to wait. I don't think you would frame a house with it, but here and there it has its purpose. For the casual builder or DIYer, this is a good product. The ease at movement without a hose and compressor really make it useful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Jams constantly I bought this gun for small jobs and punch work on new construction. The feed chute jams whenever there is a break in the nail strips as in having a second clip in. The next clip nail head pops up and catches on the frame. It also will jam at the nose with a bent nail that has to be pried out. Of all things that should be basic by now, these two are unexpected.

Ive owned this tool for about six months and i notice whenever I use nails other than Dewalt my gun jams and I have to break down the front of the gun to free the nail. I have tried Hitachi and other brands that Home Depot carry but I find if I use the Dewalt brand, I end up with less down time.
