Dewalt’s new 20V Max cordless brushless framing nailer is one of the most anticipated tools of the year. We previously posted teaser images of the new nailer, and finally got our hands on a list of features and specs.
This isn’t a hybrid nailer like Senco’s Fusion, it’s completely electric.
The DCN690 framing nailer will be Dewalt’s second brushless 20V cordless power tool. There are rumors that at least one more brushless product will be hot on the heels of the nailer’s release.

It’s worth pointing out that the nailer is described as: Dewalt 20V Max XR brushless nailer. Notice the 20V Max XR branding we saw on Dewalt’s new cordless metal-cutting saw, 2.0Ah battery pack, and 4.0Ah battery pack. Although the images in the 4.0Ah post are of the UK/EU model, the USA model keeps the XR branding but swaps “18V” for “20V Max.”
Dewalt hasn’t said anything about what the XR officially means, although we know it technically stands for extended runtime. Moving forward we expect for the the XR branding to be emblazoned on Dewalt’s heavier duty and more premium tools, as well as their pending brushless products.
