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.
