Dewalt D55141FNBN makes it easy to do a variety of carpentry and woodworking jobs becase of its heavy-duty 16-gauge finish nailer, 18-gauge brad nailer and an oil-free compressor.

DEWALT D55141FNBNDewalt’s 16-gauge nailer can handle up to straight collated 160 nails that are measured 1 ¼ to 2 ½ inches while its 18-nailer can hold up to 100 straight collated nails that are between ½ to 1 ¼ inches long.

The nailers are convenient to be used by both left and right handed people because it is well balanced and provides users with a reversible belt hook.

The users will not have problems with their working going to a standstill as D55141FNBN comes with a tool-free jam clearing to easily fix a damaged or bent fastener. Safety of the user and the work surface is also improved thanks to Dewalt’s trigger lock.

Dewalt Nailer/Compressor Combo Kit is powerful enough to run both its 16- and 18-gauge nailers at the same time because of its ability to deliver 2.0 SCFM at 90 PSI and a maximum of 150 PSI. This enables the Dewalt nailer to fire more nails at an instant and provides fast recovery as well.

It works silently though as it is only at 79dBA. It has been particularly designed that way in order to have a quiet work environment. Dewalt’s functions smoothly and maintenance free and does not cause oil spill on work areas thanks to its oil-free and long-life pump. D55141FNBN offers an easy set up and breaker tipping is reduced due to its low amp 8 draw motor.

Dewalt is easy to set up and simple to use making it ideal for non-professionals. The product is a perfect tool both heavy and light carpentry or crafts work. The Combo Kit is easy to move around and store as it only weighs 30 pounds and is just 10.5 inches wide. Dewalt D55141FNBN provides plenty of power despite its light weight. It is very much worth its price as well.

Customer Reviews

Dewalt D55141FNBN goes to show just how effective it is to reintroduce the experienced customers to a range of amazing features. The nailer has been the focus of the most compliments, since its 16 gauge of length is enough for the best of residential uses. This machine is quite accurate and has left successful marks of operation in a varying degree of materials and surfaces. The kit is quite light, but is still considered a powerhouse. Its compressor drain valve and dual hose connections help further at enhancing its performance. The motor is protected by a metal plate, which adds durability to the entire structure. Customers have also praised the safety locks integrated into the nail guns. Its good finish and effective belt clip are its redeeming features. A hose of 25 feet in length comes along with the purchase of the kit. All in all, users have had little to complain about this device, except for the fact that its two gallon of storage unit may not be as big as it initially seemed to be. This compensation is countered by a fast and smooth usage with a seamless performance.
