  • Why Buy A Cordless Nailer?

    When it comes to cordless power tools, options are far from scarce. As of recent, this is especially true for woodworkers and their nail guns. An industry traditionally powered by pneumatics, cordless nailing has quickly gained a reputation for longer-lasting, more powerful batteries. Without a doubt, cordless nailing has earned its place as a serious contender for the traditional air compressor - air hose configuration.

    So why buy a cordless nail gun?

    For some, a legacy of durability, power and quality is enough to keep long-time woodworkers, carpenters and building framers happy with their air-powered tools. And, for those who tested the first prototype cordless nailers of the late 1980's or 1990's, they wouldn't be wrong having reservations. The difference now, cordless technology has evolved to a comparable level of reliability and power - as compared to the same pneumatic tools responsible for making collated fastening systems what they are today.

    With battery-powered tools no longer a concern for quality, rest assured that your cordless nailer is completely capable of the challenges ahead. New technology includes a variety of long-lasting, lightweight 18V batteries from Hitachi, Senco and others of the like. Dewalt recently launched their FLEXVOLT cordless system, which offers up to four times a traditional battery charge, with 6.0 Amp Hours of power stored up. Grex even offers a cordless brad nailer, which runs on regular AAA batteries and fuel cell.

    What's the benefit to cordless?

    Versatility. The number one benefit to cordless - besides looking tech savvy - is limitless boundaries in where the tool can be used. As long as the battery is charged, your cordless nailer has no restrictions. No hose. No cord. Pure freedom. Whether you need the extra length an air hose can't provide, or you need to squeeze into a tight corner, cutting the cord eliminates these limitations. With car charger adapters, and quick-charge stations, most major brands in cordless are able to stay up-and-running with minimal delay.

    While cordless technology has advanced tremendously in the last few years, there are certain areas where air-powered tools have an edge on cordless. The main downside to cordless - cost. Look to spend over $100 more on cordless nail guns, when compared against a comparable pneumatic model. If you shop right, you may find a deal, such as Nail Gun Depot's Finish Nailer Face-Off, where you can find added value in buying cordless, like a free spare battery or similar.

    With weight, size and driving power typically no longer an deterrent for cordless, thanks to slimmer batteries with improved lithium-ion cells, there should be little concern. However, expect a cordless nailer to be slightly heavier than a pneumatic nailer of comparable design.

    One last area to consider, some brands, such as Paslode and Grex, require compressed gas fuel cells in addition to battery power. While the industry seems to be gradually shifting away from use of fuel cells, some brands still require them. Fuel cells range in lifespan and cost, but typically aren't a deal breaker for someone going cordless.

    Is now the time to cut the cord? Let us know.

    If you're shopping high-end for the holidays, our premium pick for gift giving this year is none-other than Hitachi's new lineup of lithium-ion cordless finish nailers. Available in extremely limited quantities before January 1st, this exclusive new series includes the NT1850DE 18-Gauge 2” Cordless Brad Nailer, the NT1865DM 16-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Straight Finish Nailer, and the NT1865DMA 15-Gauge 2-1/2” Cordless Angled Finish Nailer. Lose the air hose, compressor and gas fuel cartridges; this series of Hitachi cordless finish nailers is powered exclusively by Hitachi’s all-new, upgraded 3.0Ah compact lithium-ion battery, which delivers comparable power at roughly half the weight. Not to mention, the battery is universal to all other Hitachi 18V Li-Ion slide type battery-powered tools. Pair that with Hitachi's Brushless motor technology, which adds longer run time, reduces maintenance, and improves durability - and we see each of these tools making for a happy New Year. The driving system used in these finish nailers is similar to Hitachi’s pneumatic line, featuring a unique air spring drive system that uses compressed air to drive each nail. This results in zero ramp up time, increased shooting speed, recoil that feels like a pneumatic nailer, quicker response time between fastener shots, better flush driving- even at an angle, and easy maintenance. And if you aren't sold yet, Hitachi is even supporting these tools with a limited-lifetime warranty for complete peace of mind.

  • Corded Power – Cordless Freedom – Dewalt FLEXVOLT

    The folks at Dewalt have outdone themselves again, introducing an entirely new line of cordless batteries – coined the FLEXVOLT System. The first of their kind, these Dewalt batteries feature an intelligent design, capable of changing voltage when you change tools. The FLEXVOLT system is compatible with 20V MAX, 60V MAX and 120V MAX tools.

    FlexVolt Lightning

    The Dewalt DCB606 20V/60V MAX FLEXVOLT 6.0 Ah battery pack is designed with fifteen 4V MAX cells. Designed to run in either parallel or series mode, this battery is currently the most versatile in its class. In parallel mode, three sets of five cells connect in a parallel circuit. Each set provides 2 Ah (Amp Hour). Keep in mind, Ah is the amount of energy charge in a battery. This mode gives you a total of 20V MAX and 6 Ah for an increased run time.

    The FLEXVOLT battery is engineered to run four times longer than a compact 20V MAX battery. To see a quick video demonstration of FLEXVOLT, click here.

    The series mode works a bit different. All 15 cells connect in a series to provide power for 60V MAX tools. The DCB606 automatically switches to this mode when you slide it into Dewalt’s 60V MAX brushless tools.

    The DCB606 battery pack can power all Dewalt 20V MAX cordless tools, including the DCN693B cordless metal connector nailer (DCN693M1 model if purchased with 20V battery), DCN692B cordless framing nailer (DCN692M1 model if purchased with 20V battery), DCN660B cordless finish nailer (DCN660D1 if purchased with 20V battery), as well as 60V and 120V MAX cordless tools. Additional features on this FLEXVOLT battery include an LED display that shows you the state of charge, single piece cell holder, and durable construction.

    For a quick, 60-minute charge of the FLEXVOLT battery, we recommend the Dewalt DCB118 fan-cooled fast charger. This battery charger is compatible with all 20V MAX batteries.

    FLEXVOLT HD 6AH Battery

    Dewalt has combined the power of corded with the freedom of cordless. Not just convenient, longer run time and more power translates to increased productivity and revenue. The FLEXVOLT system eliminates the constant hassle of charging and recharging your batteries, reducing downtime significantly. The Dewalt DCB606 is now available for pre-order only, with an anticipated release toward the end of August 2016.

    Will you power up with FLEXVOLT?
