Great Tool but does not come with XR Battery
Love the gun and has worked great but trying to get the battery that DeWalt has on the package is impossible. Home Depot even opened up other DeWalt products that were suppose to come with this gun (2.0Ah XR Battery) and they were not in those either.

DeWalt Quality
When it came time to renovate my basement, I knew I would need to update my old DeWalt 18v tools.

My wife gave me clearance to buy every tool I would need. I stocked up on DeWalt 20v tools.

I’ve always been a fan of DeWalt, so it was an easy choice.

Remember the old days of dragging out the air compressor, untangling your air hose, dragging the hose from room to room and tripping on the hose??

Those days are gone. This tool is amazing. I look for reasons to use it now.

It works perfectly every time.

My only regret is not buying one sooner.

If you are reading this, just buy it. You will not regret it.

Great tool
this tool made me abandon my compressor, hoses, and electrical extensions. it is simply powerful. it just does not work well with nails too long, 2 in., the nails do not go all the way in when it is hardwood. It has a small gap in the pin that pushes the nail, sometimes depending on the position of the machine the nail is also out. but even so I love her.

Good nailer
This nailer is a very good nailer seems to hit harder than my pneumatic on. Little nose heavy with 2.0 amp battery. My only complaint is that they should send a 4.0 battery with the kit so it’s more balanced.

Long battery life
Got this to use so I didn’t have to run my noisy air compressor. Was a little worried that I’d have to be replacing batteries all day, so I bought 2 to have on the charger when using one...and I am extremely happy to report that during an almost constant use during an 8 hour work day there was no need to replace the battery once! Even using the rapid fire mode, pull the trigger and slam it down, still one battery per day.
Another nice feature, that scared me at first, is that it won’t let you dry fire, when it’s down to its last 6 (I think nails it won’t fire and gives you enough room for a new rack or nails!

It just arrived yesterday and I've already used it to construct some on the counter shelves from rock hard maple. Impressive. I told my bro. "I wished I'd bought one 10 years ago! He said "they didn't have them 10 years ago!" I said,"Well, they should have! A little heavy for a lady to use, but I don't have to drag an air hose. I actually used it in my livingroom! Try that with a compreeor tool.

First one the brads jams up in the magazine because of too much slop in the track, received a replacement and that one under drives the fasteners - sent the second one back and will deal with the occasional jams.
Otherwise a great tool

Pleasantly surprised
I bought this 2 days ago, so that I could install a bunch of baseboard in multiple apartments. My gas powered cordless brad nailer had a bent firing pin, and I didn't want to have to drag a compressor up and down 4 flights of stairs. I had used a battery powered cordless brad nailer in the past and I was definitely dissatisfied with the performance of it; you could only fire 15 - 20 brads before there wasn't enough juice to countersink the brads. I figured with 2 new 20 volt batteries and a brushless motor I could probably make it through half a day or so before I would need to stop and charge all my batteries again (I have a total of 5 batteries. I was definitely wrong, I went 2 days on a single battery, shot like 2000 brads. I am very impressed,

kevin s on Aug 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, this listing is incorrect. Model DCN680D1 is a straight finish nailer, not an angled nailer.

For view Dewalt's cordless angled nailer, please view model DCN660D1
Could this nailer be used to hang 1/2 inch hemlock on a barn?

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
Condition: New Factory Reconditioned
