TOWSON, MD – DEWALT introduces the DCN660, its most advanced, light-weight, compact, and highly anticipated 20V MAX* Cordless 16 GA Angled Finish Nailer with EXTREME RUNTIME (XR)®, powered strictly by a Lithium Ion battery. With its efficient brushless motor, the DCN660, ‘ready to fire’ 16 GA cordless finish nailer is designed to be the primary finish nailer for Contractor’s, Remodelers, Trim and Finish Carpenters, and Cabinet Makers and Installers.

At just 6lbs (weighed with a 2.0Ah battery), the 20V MAX* XR® Cordless 16 GA Angled Finish Nailer is 2.3lbs lighter and 1 inch shorter in height**. Using the 2.0Ah battery that is included in the kit version, the 16 GA Finish Nailer drives up to 800 nails per charge in sequential mode. Because the DCN660 is compatible with all 20V MAX* XR® DEWALT Lithium Ion batteries, it’s also capable of driving up to 2,200 nails per charge in sequential mode when using DEWALT’s 20V MAX* XR® 5.0Ah battery (DCB205 sold separately).

Convenient features of the 20V MAX* XR® Cordless 16 GA Angled Finish Nailer include tool-free jam release, tool-free depth adjustment, and tool-free stall release, which resets the driver blade without the need for tools. The cordless finish nailer features a simple tool-free selectable trigger system that allows its actuation mode to be changed from sequential fire to bump for fast pace work. The nailer also includes an adjustable belt hook and multi-functional LED lights that illuminate application surfaces, blink when the battery is low, and alert the user if the finish nailer has stalled.

Optimal for interior and exterior trim applications including baseboards, crown molding, and door and window casings, this nailer is a lightweight, compact, and durable option for finish work. The DCN660D1 comes with one 2.0Ah battery, charger, and kit box and is expected to retail for approximately $399. The DCN660B bare tool is will retail for approximately $349. Available in October 2015 where DEWALT products are sold, the 20V MAX* XR® Cordless 16 GA Angled Finish Nailer will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, 1-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
