Depends on how much you will use it. They are awesome when new, but wear out fairly quickly IMO, and replacing parts doesn't seem to work too well.

Re: DeWalt Cordless Framing Gun


Keep in mind we are using them almost every day, not for heavy nailing, but still gets used a bit most days

Mine has been a turd. Won’t sink in lvls even when it’s working “properly”.

Re: DeWalt Cordless Framing Gun


I wouldn't use it much as most framing gets put together with stainless screws or GRK brass coated. Mostly bracing and blocking.

The dewalts still a headache with all its issues. I have no complaints about The hitachi I bought last winter. The tool has a lifetime warranty too.

The new gas-less Hitachi seems to be a winner.

I have had two of the Dewalts for 2 plus years. I would absolutely buy them again. They are used at least a couple times a week.

I'm sure you can do it with a Dewalt cordless framing gun.

I bought the Paslode. It's night and day difference. It's also only 7lbs. About 3 lbs lighter than the DeWalt with a battery.

The Paslode will over sink if not adjusted correctly. Zero wind up time as well.
