Introducing Dewalt's DCN660 Series Cordless Finish Nailer
November 3, 2015
Dewalt fans rejoice. Introducing the widely anticipated DCN660, 20V MAX 16 gauge cordless angled finish nailer, by Dewalt. A game changer for the brand, the DCN660 series runs exclusively on lithium-ion battery power - eliminating the need for fuel cells, regular cleaning and related maintenance. Just snap the battery into place and start working.
Dewalt's DCN660 finish nailer is built around their 20V MAX brushless motor - which means improved performance, a lighter weight design, and longer run-time for the end user. How much lighter you ask? Try 27 percent lighter than the comparable Dewalt DC618. Weighing in at only six pounds WITH battery, arm fatigue shouldn't become an issue for some time.
Other goodies on the DCN660 include tool-free depth adjustment, tool-free jam release, tool-free stall release, multi-functional LED lights, select actuation (choose between bump and sequential fire), adjustable belt hook, no mar tips, and trigger lock-out. And don't forget, this tool can drive up to four nails per second.
Just like the Dewalt Li-Ion cordless framing nailer (which has also been refreshed for Q4 of 2015), the DCN660 comes in two variations, the DCN660D1 and the DCN660B. The DCN660B is your bare-bones, tool-only model, and does not include a battery or charger. For someone who already has a Dewalt 20V MAX battery and charger, this will be your budget friendly option. HOWEVER, for slightly more, we recommend getting the DCN660D1, which comes with battery, charger and carrying case. After all, as any contractor will tell you, it never hurts to have an extra battery.
Just like any other 16 gauge angled finish nailer, look for Dewalt's DCN660 series tool to excel in applications that include door and window trim, paneling, baseboards, casing, crown molding, cabinetry, door jambs and more.
The DCN660 is a new release item for Dewalt, and isn't expected to be in-stock until 2016. Nail Gun Depot is taking pre-order requests for these tools, so be sure to grab one of the first available, by ordering early.
