Great Product!
I bought 3-4 months ago and use it on a daily basis! Great product. I love the lockout feature as it wont fire if there are no more bullets.

Great tool to own
Game changer, tool of the year. Thank you Dewalt! In cold climates air compressors don’t work so well and this tool has really lowered the cost to manufacture many wooden projects, so many staples with big batteries. My customers will be delighted.

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.
