Review

The 18-volt DC608 uses a flywheel drive mechanism to sink brads from 5⁄8" to 2" long in rapid-fire mode, just like a pneumatic unit, but with no stinky fuel cells.
I gave it a good workout installing red-elm trim with 2" brads. I quickly dialed in the right setting using its 12-position depth adjustment, and found I could return to it later without test firing. Its narrow tip and dual LED lights make pinpoint brad placementeasy. After a full day of use (in a measure-cut-fit-and-nail sequence), the battery never ran dead. The DC608 has a low-charge indicator light to let you know when to swap batteries. It also features quick, toolless removal of jammed brads, a low-on-brads indicator magazine window, and a switch lockout for safety without removing the battery. —Tested by Jan Svec
