Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Combining the precision of hand nailing with the speed and ease 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 rapidly as five brads per second. It's powered by DEWALT's 18-volt cordless batteries (not included).
Power and Performance
The 7.4-pound DC608B requires no air compressor and no air hose to drag around. Its straight, box-style magazine holds 110 brads, and is specially designed to seal out dust and debris that can cause misfires. The DC608B can shoot nails through softwood, hardwood, and plywood and other sheet goods. It's ideal for trim carpenters, cabinetmakers, and others who routinely install baseboard, shoe, crown and chair rail moldings, paneling, and window and door casings and jambs.
The tool's narrow, tapered nose fits into tight spaces, such as under toekicks and inside of cabinets and drawers. Choose between two operating modes: Sequential for one-at-a-time precision nailing, or high-speed Bump firing for rapid production work. The 12 position dial enables you to move between applications without having to re-acquire exact depth setting.
Comfort and Convenience
The DC608B offers easy access to the nosepiece for the removal of jammed nails without the use of screwdrivers or tool wrenches, and its top cap is impact resistant and easy to remove for troubleshooting. Its fully enclosed, box style magazine helps keep dust and debris out of the magazine to prevent malfunctioning.
This DEWALT cordless tool does not come with a battery or charger. It's compatible with the DC9096 18-volt XRP battery pack and DW9117 15-minute charger.
This DEWALT tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase).

Top Customer Reviews
I already had two 18v batteries so I didn't need the whole kit, so this worked out perfectly.
I bought the brads from the local hardware so I could inspect them - I'm buying this to make my life easier and collecting a bunch of brads that came apart in shipping is not my idea of easier.
This thing... man I'm kicking myself for not buying it sooner. I had it in my head that this was just a novelty/nice to have item but I can do fine without it for the cost. Was I wrong. I can't express how much easier and faster this is, and leaves a much smaller hole. I've used it on trim (baseboard, casing, etc.) and even to face nail some HARD, thick flooring that I had to replace. Punches through with no problem and you don't have to worry about having room to swing a hammer, or use a countersink, splitting, etc. Hold it up, POP, done.
• Adjustable force
• Lights area when nose is pressed
• Nose has protective rubber piece so as not to mar surface
• As stated, nose piece easily pops apart to fix jams
• Decent balance to it once battery is on
• Easy to load/unload brads
• Basically what I've come to expect from DeWALT
I haven't tried the sequential firing setting yet so I can't comment on it.
What I can say is hold on to this thing, otherwise the brads won't sink properly. In fact, if the nailing surface or the nail gun are not secure when firing the nail won't penetrate properly (may be less of an issue with soft wood). Do some testing before hand to get a good feel for it and to get the depth set right, especially if you're doing something like flooring where you really want it right the first shot. I assume this is the same for any brad nailer, but this is my first so just throwin' it out there for anyone else in the same situation.
The Paslode isn't a bad gun, but over the years I've had it repaired a number of times, and it's rather finicky about firing every time. It seems like it never fires the first time when you are in an awkward position holding precision pieces just so. The other issue with the Paslode is keeping fresh gas. They tell you to store in a cool place, which is impossible when your tools go with you everywhere and are continuously baked in the Florida sun.
This DeWalt brad nailer has none of those issues. It's a great tool, makes very little noise, and sets nails perfectly according to the variable depth dial. If you do finish carpentry for a living, don't leave home without it. At first look, it will seem rather large, but I can get it in any place that I used to get with my Paslode, or my old Bostitch air gun.
I use the whole line of 18V DeWalt tools (circular saw, jig saw, vacuum, impact driver, hammer drill, cutoff tool, 16G finish nailer)every day, so I invested in the Lithium Ion batteries. The Lithiums are far superior to the XRP batteries in charge time, operating time and longevity, so while I'm offering opinions, I highly recommend them as well.
1) You can easily lay up a room-full of base/chair rail/casing on one battery, even using 1-5/8" pin . .
2) Has plenty of power in fir, don't know about maple.
3) Uses the 18v (I'm running Li-ion, but all 18v Dewalt work) battery, so backward compatible with my other Dewalt stuff . . shaking my fist here for them using a different configuration of battery for the new 20v tools
4) Works w Senco AY (slight head), and Hitachi slight-head nails, as well as Dewalt.
5) (Modified) nose fits into inside corners . . WILL NOT JAMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6) Not too heavy/bulky for little jobs (running lotsa trim, I usually prefer using the smaller/lighter Dewalt 18 ga air gun) AND small enough to leave in the truck all the time.
7) LOVE the bounce switch, wish my air gun had it
8) Pin caisson clears and loads easily
9) Safety is kinda clunky, but is easy to feel if it is on, and one finger turns it back off
10) Easy to clear bent nails
11) Depth adjust works, and is fairly repeatable, but test test test, if that return took a long time to make
12) Doesn't scare babies n animals, or me, and no air to direct away from my eyes, or ears
1) Not a big deal but the funny noise the motor makes takes a little getting used to, but, like I said, quieter than my very quiet Makita compressor.Read more ›
