Yes, this thing is a baseboard nailing machine. Really, just about any type of trim work is the intended use.
Oh dear. JohnO, this is a brad nailer, it ONLY shoots 18 ga brad nails. It will not shoot any other type of nail like ring shank nails.
Yes, the DCN680B can be used with the FLEXVOLT line of batteries.
Brad nails have little to no head on them, so it will do nothing for metal roofing. Not to mention they are so thin (18g) they will have a hard time piercing metal without deforming. So that's a big no. As for molding/trim, it works great, that is what it is designed for.
I don't think this nailer uses a belt. If it does, any and all replacement parts for any dewalt tool are available through their online ServiceNet portal. Look up your tool model number and it will give you an exploded diagram of every part/component. Find your part and order it.
The DCN692M1 can drive up to 700 nails per charge using the DCB204, four amp hour battery.
Hi Johnping, The unit DCN680B weighs 4 lbs
Watch the sales but often Lowes has a promotion for buying bare tools with a "free" battery.
6 pounds. If you are concerned about holding it, my wife who is 5'3" and weighs 125 lbs can use it easily.
