DEWALT Announces 20V Cordless 16 GA Angled Finish Nailer


Yes, it’s finanly here.  We first saw this at the Dewalt event and couldn’t wait for this to hit market.  I have been impressed by their framing nail, so I am sure I will be equally as impressed with this finish nailer.  Best part of it, it’s a 20V cordless nailer.  No air hoses and no gas cartridges.  OK let’s talk about the tool.

The new nailer is a 16 gauge angled finish nailer (Model DCN660) which can drive up to 2,200 nails per charge with a 5 Ah battery and 800 nails with a 2 Ah battery.  That’s a heck of a lot of nails.  This nailer would be great for Contractor’s, Remodelers, Trim and Finish Carpenters, and Cabinet Makers and Installers.

The nailer houses a brushless motor for extended runtime and longer motor life.  While it may look heavy, it only weigh 6 lbs. and that is with a 2 Ah battery.  So let me guess, you want to know about some of the features.


  • Tool-Free Jam Release
  • Tool-Free Depth Adjustment
  • Tool-Free Stall Release
  • Tool-Free Selectable Trigger – Bump & Sequential

The nailer comes with an adjustable belt hook and multi-functional LED lights that illuminate application surfaces, blink when the battery is low.

The DCN660D1 comes with one 2.0Ah battery, charger, and kit box.  The kit should retail for around $399.  The DCN660B bare tool will retail for about $349. So when can you get this bad boy?  According to Dewalt it should be available for purchase in Roctober.


  1. It’s one of those tools where I think its a better value to buy the kit with the current pricing. If it was $299 for the bare tool I would say go for the bare version but for the extra 50 bucks you get the case, battery, and charger which is pretty nice with a tool like that.

    • Good thing you did the calculation on that one for all of us and figured out the value! So many guys may not have known from Eric’s article that the KIT includes a case, battery, and charger for only $50 more, but you figured it out! I sure hope no one misses your comment and buys the bare tool by mistake! They would be missing out on such value! After all, having a battery and charger sure is pretty nice with a tool like that.

  2. Finally! I use my 18v trim nailer constantly and it’s a workhorse, just was waiting for the 20v. Looks like some upgraded features so will have to check it out.
