Absolute powerhouse
This nailer not only saves you time but money. No need for a compressor or looking for outlets in new construction. This gem is fast and easy and a lifesaver. It can handle all day work or a simple punchlist on all jobs. Have had It about a year now and no complaints and no sign of wear

The Ultimate in Portability
The more I use the DCN680, the more I appreciate the hassle free portability. It is a great tool for small projects or pickup work, and it really can do anything that a traditional pneumatic nail gun can do. While it’s a bit bigger and heavier than a traditional pneumatic brad nailer, it’s not so heavy that it should receive any negative marks against it. On our jobsites today, there is one less air hose strung about and that’s a good thing. If you’re a DIY-er that hasn’t yet invested in an air compressor, the DCN680 is worth considering as it will only set you back about as much as a professional grade compressor and brad nailer, but you’ll get the ultimate in portability.

Extremely handy
I bought this a few months ago, because I was tired of running an air hose to finish off a small trim project. Time is money and the cordless tools move things along very quickly.

I like the brad nailer. Works the way it should. I prefer the smaller gauged brads as it less likely to split the trim. CPO delivered my nailer a few days earlier than expected which was also nice. It covered my butt since my 18v brad nailer died on me. Terrific job guys! I’ll buy from you again. Thx. Ed.L

Portable and Works Great!
Prior to starting our home remodeling, one tool I knew I wanted was an 18 gauge cordless brad nailer, as I wanted to be able to quickly and professionally install trim as we finished each room. I made the mistake of purchasing a different brand unit that just just did not work as well as it should have. I then bought the Dewalt DCN680B 20V Max XR 18 GA Cordless Brad Nailer as a replacement. The DeWalt unit has worked flawlessly and has made my finish nailing work go quickly. The unit is easy to load and adjust for proper nail depth. Although the unit has not jammed for me, it has a jam clearing latch to make clearing jams quick and easy. The 20V Max batteries last a long time when using the unit, which is a great advantage over the air compressor and air hose requirement of a pneumatic unit. With much work yet to do in our house, this tool will definitely be used regularly. Thus far I am impressed and I do recommend it.

I've had mine for a month now and it paid for itself in the first week! Installing quarter round, baseboards, and trim with zero problems. The adjustable depth makes it easy to not shoot through what you're installing. I have had only one jam out of the thousands of brads I've shot and it was easily fixed. It can be a little bulky with a 5 or 6 amp hour battery attached but still easily welded. Highly recommend this product and all of dewalts products!
