DeWalt 20V Max Cable Stapler: New Tool Tip-Off


Electricians have a new best friend with the new DeWalt 20V Max Cable Stapler. The big deal here is definitely time savings. If you’re currently hammering in your cable staples, you’ll fly through your installations with a stapler like this. DeWalt says you’ll go twice as fast, but there are some areas I think it can speed things up even more.

10-Second Summary

  • Model DCN701
  • Designed for Romex wire and cable
  • Can handle low voltage
  • Cable guide maintains accurate firing
  • $199 bare, $249 kit with 2.0 Ah battery

DeWalt 20V Max Cable Stapler: New Tool Tip-OffThe system is designed for Romex (NM-B) wire and cable primarily. You can also use it on low voltage applications. The stapler fires 1-inch insulated cable staples. DeWalt will carry a new line of compatible fasteners that are UL listed (DRS1800)

What makes it a viable solution is a cable guide to keep you from shooting a staple through the insulation.

Without a battery, the stapler weighs 4.7 pounds. That’s not bad for the cordless nailer/stapler class. We recommend going with a 2.0 Ah slim battery to keep the overall weight down. Runtime shouldn’t be an issue.

The tip to tail length is pretty compact. That’s going to be a big help in areas that tighten up more than standard stud spacing. Overall, it looks like the DeWalt 20V Max Cable Stapler is something electricians and cable installers can be genuinely excited about.

This Made in the USA with Global Materials stapler is scheduled to launch in early 2019 and retail for $249 as a kit with a 2.0 Ah battery. A bare tool option will also be available for $199.

Waste!!!! Even the picture is a tail all. Too big to even be useful except on long straight runs.

So we looked into one of these about three years ago (don’t remember the brand) but the supply house said they stopped selling them because the depth wasn’t consistent enough. Depending on the hardness of the wood, results varied widely, as I best remember the vendor telling us.
