The NEW DeWalt DCN692N XR 18v Li-ion Cordless Gasless Framing Nailer

DeWalt have done it again!

After the hugely successful launch of the DCN690 cordless, gas free Framing Nailer, they decided to work on improving their ground breaking tool and have now announced the newest addition to their brushless cordless range – the NEW DeWalt DCN692N XR 18v Li-ion 2 Speed Cordless Gasless Framing Nailer!

We can exclusively reveal that we have the specs for the new model, which will be available as a naked unit only, and www.my-tool-shed.co.uk will have stock by early May!

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 10.49.08

Much like it’s predecessor, the DCN692N has an ergonomic design allowing the nailer to fit easily between a 400mm centre stud, while its gas free operation means a significant saving in running costs, as well as a consistent performance between -20 to 50 degrees Celsius.

Featuring DeWalt’s brushless motor technology, the 18v Framing Nailer is capable of firing a 90mm Ring Shank nail in soft wood and up to 63mm in harder woods. With 2 speeds to optimise the nailer for firing all lengths of nails, users will benefit from longer runtime, quicker readiness to fire, less recoil and more durability when firing short nails.

Extremely versatile, its 30 – 34 degree magazine will accept most clipped heads as well as off centre round head paper tape or wire weld collated framing nails.

User protection is paramount – accidental discharge of the fastener is prevented by the contact trip lock-off and the dry fire lockout ensures that the tool is protected from firing without nails.

With a reversible belt hook, tool jam clearance and an easy to use wheel depth adjuster, the DeWalt DCN692N will surely be THE Cordless Tool of Summer 2014!
