DeWalt introduces two heavy-duty 15-gauge and 16-gauge finish nailers — the D51276K (pictured) and D51257K — which are designed with a patent-pending Sealed Lube Dual Tech feature that allows for oil-free or oil-lube operation. The nailers are able to drive 1- to 2½-inch nails into hardwoods, such as oak. The units are designed with an internal piston catch to provide maximum power and a consistent drive on each shot.
