Official DEWALT DC545K Site
This lasting, economical gun from DEWALT is ideal for heavy-responsibility caulking or sealant jobs. Able to manage the thickest adhesives without clogging, the DC545K gives up to 640 pounds of force for consistent, dependable results. To ensure optimum precision and control, simply set the variable speed and start working. And you will not have to worry about drips and messes, thanks to the auto-reverse electronic. For extra convenience, the DC545K gets its power from an 18-volt battery made to work with all of DEWALT’s line of 18-volt packs and tools, and comes with a 360-degree cartridge holder that fits 10-oz- and 300-310 milliliter cartridges.
This gun has a lot of torque and will dispense thick adhesives like liquid nails quickly and evenly without the jaggies of a common manual caulking gun – you get one nice uninterrupted bead. To keep panel to panel consistency, I glued a cheap countdown stopwatch on the back of mine so that I could dispense a recognized amount of material, i. E. 8 seconds worth on a 4×4′ panel, 16 seconds for a 4×8 panel – just when doing repeated work you get excellent repeatable results and can go through material quickly saving a lot of time and sore hands from manual caulking guns. If your stopwatch works as a count-down and up modes, you may be able to time your 1st panel, then set that time for each extra panel. For thin material like latex caulks I tell a small opening in the tube – the dispensing rate is so fast that the thin hole you make is all that holds back the dewalt from squirting the whole tube out. Since the thin material comes out at high pressure caused by the small nozzle, it expands in width afterwards and makes a wider bead than initally dispensed, so downsize the guides on the plastic info about 2 sizes and you’ll get close your wanted width. If you have never used a specific caulk before, start by just snipping off the end of the plastic then cut back more if needed. It is easier to snip off a bit more of the tip if it is too small but you can not cut it smaller if its too big to start with. In my kit I keep a pair of wire cutters to snip the end of the tubes wider or at a sharp angle. One completely charged XRP battery can empty 40+ tubes of liquid nails with power left over. It is a better tool for adhesives than caulks just caused by the viscosity difference, however with practice it can force caulk into small gaps with ease. Re-caulking a bathtub may be done in a single trigger squeeze leaving a professional finish.
Needing a tool to apply sticky caulk to the expansion joint on my pool I bought the DC545K. The construction grade sticky was so concentrated that pulling on a manual caulk gun with two hands made a pitiful bead. With the DC545K it was a problem of it coming out of the tube to fast and expanding large. Luckily the DC545K has a dial on the back so you may be able to change the rate of speed of the caulk leaving the gun. This modification is a must have. The holder for the tube is metal and spins so you may be able to change the angle without having to swing the gun with the battery at an angle. There are two causes. The top one releases the plunger for the tube so you may be able to put and remove the caulk tube. The bottom one starts and stops the gun. When you release the trigger the plunger backs off somewhat to release pressure on the tube. On other models like the Craftsman C3 this backoff is quite dramatic and can make starting and stopping tedious. DC545K has this down pretty tight so you hardly notice. On the end of the tube holder is a metal probe for puncturing the inner tube liner (useful add on). Mine came with one battery and a charger. The quality and construction makes this a serious tool to think about. I could say worth the investment.
Great for big jobs. But I think it’s impossible to make a good bead for a bathtub or something like that. But for heavy-responsibility stuff like mortar patch or roofing sealant, I’d greatly recommend it. One negative is that it’s 18volts and at that they give you the old-style 18volt battery. Most likely not the fastest mover in the DeWalt line. Still I’d get it again if it breaks.
