          Very disappointed with shipping
          I recently ordered several Dewalt tools online. 2 of the 3 arrived on time and in good condition. The 3rd item, arrived ontime but the head of the framing nailer was sticking out of a 3: hole in the box. They're were also 2 other sizable holes in the box. Apparently it had been repacked by FedEx or whoever and nobody thought to add any shipping/ packing material. it was literally bouncing around In the box, unprotected. After spending over $2,000 on these tools, I would expect more care to be put into my order. I'm in need of many more tools as I recently started a remodeling company. but truthfully at this point. I'm not sure that I'll want to take the chance again on the shipping. Even the delivery driver tried to hide the damage by only taking a picture of the only undamaged side of the box. I feel as a loyal customer and a veteran that o should be entitled to barter care. I look forward to your reply. I have several more pictures including the empty box it was shipped in. I actually took it to a local Home Depot and opened it in front of customer service. they told me I'd need to purchase another one and when it came to the store, I could return this one. I should be refunded, not have to purchase another one. js Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

            Tool failed on my second time using.
            I normally don’t have this kind of a problem with a Dewalt tool. I bought this battery, powered framing nailer six months ago, used it once in December and it worked satisfactorily. Went to use it again tonight and it failed. Home Depot informs me they won’t take it back. So now I have to deal directly with the manufacturer. I didn’t have time for something like this.

              By far the worst I’ve ever bought from dewalt
              As a dewalt tool collector, I am very disappointed…. I purchased this to frame up a 14x16 shed and I’ve had nothing but problems. I have wasted nothing but nails….

                Using the DeWalt nailer is a “game changer!” If you are already heavily invested into the DeWalt cordless ecosystems and can justify the cost for your particular project(s)—buy it! The battery life is good for our rehab framing needs and the convenience of having no cord or need for generator mitigates any weight concerns for us.

                Fast and Easy to use.
                Works great. The depth of drive works well, a couple of test nails and easy to set. Heavier than a hammer, but a lot less work driving nails, and fast. Notice a bit of paper that holds the string of nails together gets trapped under the head of the nail, but I expect that to weather away in a few days. I used Paslode, hot dipped ringed framing nails, 30 degree, paper linked, 2 inch long; to nail 3/4 inch thick cedar boards onto 2x4 rails. No splintering, no splitting, no drive thrus. Be sure to locate well, before nailing, these nails hold very tight and removal can be difficult. No jams, nail string is 37 nails of this size so frequent loading is necessary for large jobs, but loading is very easy, just a few seconds to load a new string.

                Happy not doing extra work
                Im just glad Im not having to take out the air compressor out at all. Plus having $50 off helped deciding on getting this gun.

                Piece of Junk
                Very frustrating tool. This is my second one and it is just as bad as the first. Constantly jams. Nails do not sink when shooting on a angle. Nails get caught in chamber and stuck to the gun. Very frustrating. I own a lot of dewalt tools, and am very happy, but this tool is Very disappointing

                  Way better than lugging around a nailer, hose, and compressor... looking for an outlet and waiting for the compressor to charge making all the sweet sweet compressor noise. Would like for more components to be metal instead of plastic, but so far, wish I had purchased this sooner.

                  Easy use. Quality product that is reliable. Not happy about the marking in the trim work after shooting the nail there is excess damage that could be engineered to not be there and just be a nail hole. Other than that it gets the job done.

                  I have had dewalt cordless since they were first released. For the price you can’t beat them.
