The DC608B provides simple access to the nosepiece for the removal of jammed nails without using screwdrivers or tool wrenches. Its top cap is impact-resistant and simple to strip off for troubleshooting. Combining the precision of hand nailing with the speed and easiness of pneumatic nailing, the compact, cordless DEWALT DC608B 18-volt, 18-gauge brad nailer can drive readily available 18-gauge brads, ranging in length from 5/8-inch to 2 inches as fast as five brads per second. It is powered by DEWALT's 18-volt cordless batteries, which can be purchased seperately. The 7.4-pound DC608B does not require an air compressor and air hose to drag around. Its straight, box-style magazine can hold up to 110 brads, and is specially designed to seal out dust and debris that may cause misfires. The DC608B can shoot nails through softwood, hardwood, and plywood and other sheet goods.
