My Thoughts

As someone who owns several acres of Texas woods, fencing comes with the normal territory of repairs and maintenance I have to keep up with. In the time I’ve had this nailer, I’ve reached for it several times to repair fallen segments from storms and other natural causes. There is no real way to quantify just how convenient and easy those repairs are with this nailer, especially when compared to traditional measures. It makes quick work of sinking very large fasteners, something I was concerned wouldn’t be possible on a cordless platform. As well, the repairs have lasted much longer than other traditional methods. 

DeWalt did an exceptional job on this nailer overall. The ergonomics are quite similar to their Cordless Framing Nailer, a tool commonly used in small framing and punch list items in construction. There is a slight awkwardness to it initially, but when used it’s comfortable and well balanced. There is a lot of power behind this nailer, and you certainly feel it during use, but I never found the kickback too overpowering or uncomfortable.

I think DeWalt did a great job adding a tool that while geared towards a specialty user, will still offer considerable versatility to users of all kinds. I have a large fencing project coming up this spring, and I can tell you this will be a game-changer for me.
