Kyle asked on
Speed 2 on my dcn692 stopped working or just stays in speed 1. Why is it doing that? It was fine before. Only had the gun for 1 month
Nicolas replied on

I’m planning on building a garden shed for myself & one for my son as diy ‘r ( retired ). I’m looking for a nail gun to do this suitable for framing & feather edge cladding, also for other general garden / diy projects. Which is the best all round dewalt nailer to do this, the framing or the 2nd fix nailer .
Paul replied on
You need a framing nailer. I'd go for a Hitachi Nr90GC2 over this. I sold it as it is heavy and not as good as gas nailers.
Marcus replied on
Hi the dewalt first fix nailed fires 50mm to 90mm nails the second fix gun fires not only a shorter nail but a thinner one i have both and think they are the best nailers by a mile don't bother with any other make I've tried them all and they are nowhere near as good they have both been faultless

I'm looking at one of these for fencing work using the 50mm hot dipped galv nails - currently using a compressor and bostitch gun and 30m of pro hose - need to downsize the amount of kit I take out and also be a little more flexible in bad weather. Unsure if this dcn692 is the right option but believe going to the 6.0 flex volt XR batteries solves the problems also use mostly dewalt cordless gear so seems like a sensible switch - feedback from fencing contractor would be great also on other brands of nails to use ??

It's a brilliant bit of kit and use it for all my feather edge boards, rails, gravel boards. Everything in fact.. I've used all the generations of paslode guns and the dewalt is far superior. I've found all after market nails work but I have also found it best to buy the more expensive ones as some of the cheaper ones go rusty very quickly. I can not recommend this highly enough and as yet I have had no problems at all but with the extended warranty I'm not too bothered if there is, as I know I can send it back to be fixed.

hi, I'm looking to expand my dewalt tool collection, working back on the roofs and timber frame kits, been a paslode user most my adult working life but swaying to try the new dewalt nail gun, not a lot of positive reviews about it on line, can anyone help me make my mind up??
David replied on
I still prefer my dewalt nailer,bad points are it's slightly heavier than a paslode, firing mechanism isn't as instant,good points it works, if you think it's too heavy use 2ah batteries they last long enough

Andy asked on
Thinking of trading for pas load is this a good idea. ?

No, it uses gas at extra cost, swop for dewalt there superb
stuart asked on
I have the DCN692P2 nailer, and today its stopped firing the nails in fully, 50.75 or 90 mm it doesn't matter, it wont fire them flush or below the surface, they stay proud at least 6mm on the 50 and 75 mm and 20mm on the 90,s. Anybody else having these problems?
John replied on
What are you nailing into? Anything different to what you are usually working with? Also have you tried using other batteries? I have had the odd problem with nailing into hardwoods 75mm and above.
