HIA Honorable Mention: DeWalt DCN692 nailer

Bringing cordless, hose-less, gas-less technology to heavy-duty framing nailers, this new tool from DeWalt is more portable and eco-friendly compared with traditional framing nailers.

Though Li-Ion battery-powered nailers have been around for a few years, the DeWalt DCN692 is one of the first framing nailers to adopt that technology. It can shoot 700 nails per charge, so you won’t be tethered to a compressor. Made for extended use, the tool features a durable brushless motor and a tough, rugged body and comes with a three-year limited warranty.

Stay tuned for Handy's full coverage of the DeWalt DCN692 gas-free cordless framing nailer and the other 2014 Handy Innovation Award winners and honorable mentions in the Winter 2014 issue.
