Dewalt recently launched their first-ever 20V Max cordless rivet tools, DCF403 and DCF414.
Both models are similar in design, but with different max pulling strengths and fastener setting capacities.
The two Dewalt cordless rivet tools can be used to fasten blind rivets made from aluminum, steel, and stainless steel.
The brushless rivet tools are designed for broad use, such as in HVAC, roofing, prefabrication, assembly, and automotive applications.
They feature on-board nosepiece storage and a removable mandrel collector to help keep your working area cleaner. Both tools also have a built-in LED worklight.
Dewalt DCF403 3/16″ Cordless Rivet Tool
The Dewalt DCF403 can deliver up to 2,100 pound force (lbf) pulling strength and has a 0.98″ stroke length. Dewalt says it can set up to 800x 3/16″ stainless steel rivets per charge (with a 2Ah DCB203 battery).
It’s compatible with 3/32″, 1/8″, 5/32″, and 3/16″ rivet sizes.
The DCF403 is available in tool-only format (DCF403B) or in a kit (DCF403D1) with a 2Ah battery, charger, and tool bag.
Price: $299 for the tool, $369 for the kit
Dewalt DCF414 1/4″ Cordless Rivet Tool
The Dewalt DCF414 is more powerful, delivering a pulling force up to 4,500 lbf. It can drive up to 300x 1/4″ stainless steel rivets per charge (with a compact PowerStack DCPB034 battery).
This model has a longer stroke length – 1.18″.
It’s compatible with 3/16″, 15/64″, and 1/4″ rivet sizes.
The DCF414 is available in tool-only format (DCF414B) or in a kit (DCF414GE2) with 2x compact and oil-resistant PowerStack batteries, charger, and tool bag.
Price: $799 for the tool, $959 for the kit
Both kits look to be bundled with Dewalt’s compact charger, DCB1102, which provides a 2A charging rate and is compatible with the brand’s 12V Max, 20V Max, and FlexVolt batteries.
Dewalt DCF403 and DCF414 Differences
