From the Manufacturer

The DEWALT DC608K cordless brad nailer combines the precision of hand nailing with the speed and ease of pneumatic nailing. With this compact, portable tool, you can drive brads ranging in length from 5/8 inch to two inches as rapidly as five brads per second. And best of all: no compressor to buy and no air hose to drag around. The 7.4-pound tool is powered by a rechargeable 18-volt battery and shoots readily available 18-gauge brads. Its straight, box-style magazine holds 110 brads and is specially designed to seal out dust and debris that can cause the nailer to malfunction. The DC608 can fire nails through softwood, hardwood, plywood, and other sheet goods. It’s the perfect tool 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. Choose between two operating modes: sequential for one-at-a-time nailing, or high-speed bump firing for rapid production work. Other features include: precise depth-control mechanism, swing-open nosepiece for clearing jams, safety contact lock-off that disables the trigger, and a reversible belt hook. The DC608K 18-volt 18-gauge brad nailer kit comes with an 18-volt XRP NiCad battery, one-hour charger, reversible belt hook, safety glasses, and plastic storage case. It’s backed by a DEWALT 90-day money-back guarantee, a three-year limited warranty, and a two-year service contract on the XRP battery.

I am a finish Carpenter of 15 years and I purchased the 16 gauge nailer 3 years ago, and have loved it ever since. It has worked with no troubles, with thousands of nails through it. I purchased the 18 gauge and have experienced the same Awesomeness. What I love more about this gun - 18 gauge it is so lightweight! I trimmed out 12 doors on 1 battery charge too, equivalent to 1000 nails! I love this because most the time I dont have electricity on the Job site, and these tools save me from running my Generator and compressor all day! THANK YOU DEWALT! Now just come out with an 18 volt MITER SAW!

After many frustrating iterations with the Black and Decker 18V cordless nailer, I got a credit and purchased this unit. First of all, this unit is very different mechanically from the BD model. Nails are always ready to fire without any delay. It is more powerful and allows you to precisely set nail depth. Seems like there is better quality too. The tool is made in Mexico.

You can even 'bump' fire nails. This gun will shoot hundreds of nails on a charge. When you depress the tip you hear it rev up, and subsequently pushing the trigger will fire a nail. You can also reverse this process by holding the trigger and bump firing with the tip.

This is a brad nailer, but the 2inch brads were fine for medium sized crown moldings. Some may think you need 16ga for such work, but the nail holes are tiny and are invisible when you fill them! Also, you can use it where 16ga nails would split thinner wood!

With 3 2" brads in each stud, a long prybar was needed to pull off the moulding. The nail head is a perfect size to retain the wood, and will come out with the moulding. After months the moulding caulk lines are perfectly intact with no gaps, so they must be holding well!

The unit fires hundreds of nails on a charge, and of course if you have other dewalt batteries you can have perpetual power. Jamming is very infrequent. The headlights are also a great touch. It takes a universal 18V battery.

The issues I had with it were that brads had trouble going into some hardwoods (it would jam or curl up the nail). This is probably because of the nature of 18 ga nails and not a problem with the gun.

My unit also had a defective safety switch, meaning it will rev up even if the switch is engaged. It was not functioning according to the manual. It didn't fire, but it caused me to drop the gun. Not fun to learn about this when you are on a ladder :(.

This is a great tool if you do much wood trim work or cabinet building. It saves tons of time and effort and is worth the cost! It's twice the price of the Black & Decker nailer, but it's twice the nail gun, too. If you have one small project and that's all you'll need a nailer for, then the B&D would probably be good enough for you. But if you plan on using it a lot, then opt for the DeWalt.. it has more power and much better quality and longevity. I've owned my DeWalt DC608 for well over a year and have used it extensively in that time, and I've had NO problems with it except for having jammed 3 or 4 times. It's really simple to remove the jammed nail, then blow out any dust or debris that may be causing the jam, and go on working. It's actually fun to use, and has enough safety features that an accidental firing would be difficult. No need for an air compressor and hose, which is a HUGE convenience for me, especially up on a ladder. All my tools are 18V DeWalt, so the interchangeable batteries are a huge plus. Every time I use this nailer I almost feel like kissing it (almost but not quite!!! lol)

By Justin M. on February 8, 2012
I have had this tool for a little over a year and used it here and there to hold glued pieces together when a brad was required. This weekend I used it to hang MDF crown molding. I was a little hesitant because online, several websites stated it needed to be hung with a finish nailer. Nonsense. This thing did a remarkable job. When I made a mistake and needed to take the crown down, it was incredibly difficult to get off the ceiling and wall. The holes in the crown were very small and were easily filled after it was hung. It is a heavy tool overhead but not so much that it is impossible to use. I will be using this to hang crown molding throughout my house as well as other molding applications. I would highly recommend this tool for anyone needing an all purpose nailer.

I have a confession, I can't drive a nail to save my life. Especially small nails, the kind that I find myself having to do about 80% of the time. This nailer works great, needs no compressed air, and runs a very long time on a battery charge. It drives brads into very awkward places and the best part is that it has an adjustment so that you can actually countersink the brad a wee bit, just the way you want it, so you can cover it with a little wood filler and stain, making the whole operation near invisible.

The nailer is VERY well made ( like most DeWalt things). When I bought mine, I ordered the 1", 1 1/2", and 2" brads with it. All work fine and seem to cover all bases. I did not order an extra 18v battery and I found that the one it comes with to be more than sufficient. There are many safety features built into it, but with any such tool, a little situational awareness is highly recommended.
