DeWalt 20V Max Cordless Fencing Stapler

DeWalt Fencing Stapler Goes Full Cordless

In the world of agricultural fencing, we’ve had very few cordless options on the market to date. The problem has revolved around power; fencing staples tend to be pretty stout, and there haven’t been too many cordless guns that can drive a 9 ga staple fully into a fence post. We have seen at least one cordless option  that used a combination of gas and battery technology to drive staples, but until now, there really hasn’t been a strictly battery-powered option. The just-announced DeWalt Cordless Fencing Stapler will change that proverbial game for folks that manage woven wire, high tensile, barbed wire, deer, and field fencing.

What To Look Forward To

DeWalt Cordless Fencing Stapler

When the DeWalt cordless fencing stapler hits the market in the near future, the big deal will be that this all-electric cordless fencing stapler can drive 1-1/2″ – 2″ 9 GA staples fully into fenceposts. With its brushless motor, you’ll be able to drive up to 590 staples per 5.0Ah battery charge.

According to DeWalt, this equates out to 1,400 feet of fencing per charge when averaging 5 staples per post at 12 feet between posts. They also claim that this method of going about your fence work is 3 times faster than the old hammer-pounding method of tieing down a fence.

You can look forward to the types of features you’re used to seeing on modern cordless framing nailers. The DeWalt cordless fencing stapler features a tool-free selectable trigger for sequential or Rapid Cycle actuation modes.  The depth adjustment is tool-free as well, as is the jam release and speed select. This stapler also features a dry fire lockout and fits 35 staples in the magazine.

Ergonomics also play an important role in the design. DeWalt has given the handle a low center of gravity for better balance and control, and without a battery, it only weighs in 8.8 lbs. It also features an ambidextrous belt hook and an LED worklight.
