JUNK
Used it twice....very light use and now it no longer works. JUNK! I have also had trouble with a Dewalt hedge trimmer i bought at HD. This at least works but only cuts twigs. No more Dewalt products for me...

    Within 15 minutes of using my nailer the yellow rubber tip came off in 2 pieces. It’s meant to keep from scratching the surface you’re nailing. I went by the Home Depot in Fort Oglethorpe and they didn’t have one to exchange mine with. The young lady that helped me was great and added several notes into my account. I have a job I’m working on that kept me from leaving mine for her to ship back and reorder one. She said for me yo bring it back when I’m finished with this job and she would get me another one ordered and return mine for me. Great customer service. A little disappointed with DEWALT’s product but her service made up for it.

    Works as it should
    I've used this nailer for 2 years now. No issues, no jams, shoots every time you pull the trigger with 1/2" to 2 1/2" brad nails. I also have the 16 gauge nailer and it too works perfectly.

      I really enjoy working with this brad nailer. It's a great tool. I only wished that I had purchased it before I already completed much of the trim work I've done. Still, I have a lot left to do and this tool is perfect for that work. It's much faster and easier to do all of the work I have to do. It's easy to get out and setup. It only takes a very few minutes and it's ready to go. Just great.

      Good product
      works well, last one I bought which is a bundle product, stops working in just few weeks. Since this is a standalone product, I expect this to work well and last.

      I haven't had to use the nailer, yet. I know Dewalt has a good reputation and I am very pleased with my other Dewalt tools. I expect the same with the nailer. The price made it a good deal.

      Dewalt always makes quality products and this is no exception. I just wish it would also handle 16 gauge braids.

      Perfect right out of the box. Arrived quick and so far fired off 500 + 2” and 5/8 inch brads w/o a jam or misfire. Great price if you don’t want to spend the $$ on a battery one. I have a compressor set up so no time at all to get er done!

      Maximum power with minimum noise. Quickly and efficiently punches in nails without misfire at 80-100 psi. Purchased a pancake style mini-compressor and hose to power the tool. Huge improvement over electric or battery powered mailers which regularly jam and misfire.

      What a tremendous, little Brad-Nailer. Shot about 1,500 brads with it in the 1st 2-days, and it never missed a beat. This thing is fantastic, especially for the price.
