I upgraded to this from an older cambell hausfeld 18 GA nailer. This one is so much nicer I'm upset I didn't get it sooner. It's lighter, easier to load, fires smoother, and it's really easy to see nail placement. Not just a guess as to where the nail will go. I've shot over 1000 nails through it so far and not a single jam. I'm very happy and highly recommend.

Awesome Nailer......shot 3000 1 1/2" brads without a misfire......tough...light weight.....versatile.....and I can load in a wide range of brad sizes.....which makes this brad nailer my first choice out of my tool room! Have only had this nailer just over a month......I am a contractor and I highly recommend this product to any contractor or home owner looking to add a nailer to their tool crib!!!

I purchased this to install shoe molding and crown molding on kitchen cabinets. It works flawlessly! I purchased 1 1/2” Dewalt Brad nails and had no issues.

    Not reliable
    I bought two of these 2 months ago and I’ve had both fixed twice now and they are broken again, will be fine for a small project but definitely not meant for a contractor, they simply don’t last. All my other nail guns have lasted me a year with no repairs needed. Don’t want to bash just want to warm you not to waste your money.

      Unable to give a review as I returned the brad nailer unopened and unused. I was able to get the one small part that I needed to repair my 20 year old commercial brad nailer. Just couldn't part with it and didn't need two.

      Pleased with this nail gun. I already have a Dewalt nail gun so I already am a fan, but it was smaller and it didn’t accommodate 1 3/4 or 2 “ nails. I definitely recommend.

      Lightweight, reliable tool. Another excellent Dewalt experience in building cedar windows for my newly constructed He-Shed.

      Very good tool. Easy to use. Only improvement is if it would handle staples in addition to brads. My old one that died after 20 years could drive both.

      JUNK
      Buy the Makita equivalent for $30 cheaper if you want a finish stapler that will consistently set the staple set. The safety mechanism that you push on the tip before it will fire is on the front of the firing tip. This is issue in tight spots which would be 1 of the reasons you would purchase this nailer. Ive been all dewalt for 15 years and they are turning into a rigid level product. Again its JUNK. I will no longer look at Dewalt as a competitor to Milwaukee, they wanna compete with junk.
