        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi! I'm not sure why it would say that because it does work off of an air compressor. It is a pneumatic air nailer. It is a good nailer, so I'm thinking it's just a bad description on their part. Hope they change the description as this is misleading. Hope this helps!

          A:  The DWFP12231 is a pneumatic tool. The cord will come from the air compressor.

            A:  It is air, not sure why it may say corded except to note that it’s not 20 V battery operated. Own the Dewalt air model and the 20 V battery model of this tool and prefer the 20 V.

              A:  The cord they are referring to is the air hose.

                A:  Yes. Just make sure not to push too much pressure through.

                  A:  Yes it should. Anything over 70 psi should work

                    Q:I received the Dewalt compressor with the 18ga brad nailer deal over the holidays. Where can I find the Dewalt hard case that is made specifically for this nailer? I see that you can now buy the nailer and it comes with the free case.

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  The case came with mine when I bought it, so the only advice I can give is to look on the Dewalt website, find a model number, then go looking for a retailer. You’ve probably done all that, so it isn’t great advice. But I can also tell you that eventually, I stopped storing mine in the case. I use it often enough that it’s more convenient to just hang it in between uses. If you’re going to take it to job sites and such, it would obviously be worthwhile to track down the case. But if it’s going to stay on your property, I’d reconsider whether you really need one. FWIW

                            A:  Hope this helps…download the manual and find the exact part number and search for that online. Usually works better than the name.

The model number for the bump trigger assembly kit is DWFP12231-CTK. It would be advised to contact a factory service center for pricing and availability. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT
