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!

Dewalt brad nailer
I am very impressed with the brad nailer. It is easy to use and meets the standards set by Dewalt. I would certainly recommend it I am just not sure that I would lend it out.

Excellent tool and to great features.
I bought this unit because I did not want to drag a compressor, hoses and cords around the house install base boards. It worked slick and was so much easier to use without all the other bagage. Great tool and makes the job so much easier. I love it building furniture also.

Bought this tool because I was tired of pulling out the compressor for just a few nails. This brad gun works just as good as my air gun without the hassle of dragging around a cord. It is definitely bigger than an air brad gun but have not run into that issue. Very impressed

I was one of the first to buy this nailer, I had special ordered it through Home Depot, months before it was released, It has been an amazing tool for me, I am a professional Handyman, and use this nailer on a regular basis, I have found its reliability, 2nd to none. I would recommend this nailer to anyone that has brad nail requirements on a regular basis.

It comes with a bag, but I wish it was a Hard Case, I have asked Dewalt to consider offering a hard case for this nailer for better field protection
