DeWalt's D51845 full round head framing nailer weighs less than the competition and has more power to sink nails into the toughest building materials.
From the Manufacturer
DEWALT's unique internal valve design generates plenty of power with minimum recoil for driving nails into hard materials such as laminated engineered lumbers. For lighter applications such as sheathing and decking, nail depth is controlled with an innovative tool-free push button adjustment, eliminating the need for special wrenches or changes in air pressure to set nail heads flush. Designed with input from professional framers, the D51845 includes other unique features such as a patent pending quick-release jam clearing mechanism, a reversible rafter/belt hook, an impact resistant cast titanium exhaust plate and a injection-molded rubber grip. The D51845 Full Round Head Framing Nailer holds up to 60 20-degree full round head nails ranging from 2-to-3-1/2-inches in length and up to 0.148-inches in diameter. Your purchase includes full round head framing nailer with bump-action trigger, DEWALT safety glasses, DEWALT pneumatic oil and sequential action trigger.

I purchased this nailer because it had some features that my Porter Cable did not. Tools free depth adjustment and the rafter hook. Right out of the box the tool leaked air from the back end. I tested it anyway and it felt pretty good except that the trigger is too far away from the handle and it was unable to really sink toe nails, even with the pressure turned up to 125 psi and the nose fully retracted. The nosepiece was better than the PC for toenailing but did not offer a mar free tip. I decided to send this one back. If it leaks right out of the box, I doubt that the rest of it is assembled properly. The Porter Cable also came with a really nice case, and the Dewalt with just the box it was sent in.

Out of every nailer I've ever used, this one is by far the best! This gun has a depth adjustment for the nails and so far, I have never had to go back with a hammer and finish the job. In fact, in some cases, it sunk the nails a little too far! If you do any framing or decking, you need this tool. It makes fast easy work out of a normally tediuos and time consuming job. Also, another important tid bit of info. for you. It has never jammed on me yet. The best part is, if it does, you don't need any tools to clear the jam!

I recently purchased one of these new dewalt nailers for my framing crew. The guys like it so much that they actually fight for postion as to who gets to use this tool each day. It really is a nice tool and the guys like its lightweight and kick butt depth feature. So far, we see it as the best nailer available and plan on purchasing two more in this week. I've used them all and really like this one. Go Sox!!!
