DEWALT® Launches 20V MAX* XR® Cordless Metal Connector Nailer

DEWALT’s 20V MAX* cordless metal connector nailer is the only Cordless MCN available on the US market today

TOWSON, MD (July 19, 2016) – DEWALT introduces the 20V MAX* XR® Cordless Metal Connector Nailer (MCN) with EXTREME RUNTIME (DCN693), powered strictly by a Lithium Ion battery. This cordless Metal Connector Nailer is the only cordless MCN available on the US market today, it drives industry standard 35° paper collated metal connector nails from 1-1/2” to 2-1/2” in length and achieves 600 shots per charge with 1-1/2” nails on a 4.0Ah 20V MAX* DEWALT Battery.

The low-maintenance 20V MAX* Cordless Metal Connector Nailer (DCN693) is one-hundred percent battery-powered with no gas cartridge, no hose, and no compressor to maintain. With dual operating modes in both Sequential and Rapid Cycle, the Nailer allows the user to choose between sequential for standard operating speed or rapid cycle for faster operation. A tip probe ensures precise fastener placement while multi-functional LEDs provide added convenience.

The 20V MAX* Cordless Metal Connector Nailer (DCN693) offers tool-free depth adjustment, allowing users to adjust nail depth for different materials. A convenient speed selector switch can easily change from Speed 1 for operating 1-1/2" or to Speed 2 for 2-1/2" nails while a stall release lever helps to reset the driver blade in the case of a stall or jammed nail and an onboard hex key can be used to clear tool jams for magazine removal. Finally, a belt and rafter hook rotates to either side depending on user preference.

Primarily used by framing crews, remodelers, and deck builders, the Metal Connector Nailer is also popular with users who work in natural-disaster prone areas that are hit with earthquakes, derechos and hurricanes. This tool’s use has spread nation-wide as many building codes throughout North America now require metal connectors in wood-framed buildings.
