Milwaukee® Delivers the Most Access of Any Cordless Brad Nailer

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool delivers the next innovation to our cordless finish nailer lineup with the introduction of the M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Compact Brad Nailer. This nailer provides users with the most access to tight spaces with the lightest weight design of any cordless brad nailer in the industry. The compact design is paired with performance professionals require, delivering the power to sink nails into hardwoods.

“Physical size and weight is an area users still cite as a challenge with cordless nailers. Even with all the advances in cordless nailer technology, there are still applications in tight spaces where it’s a challenge for users to fit full size cordless brad nailers, thus forcing them to continue to lean on pneumatics in some instances.” said Sean Kelley, Director of Product Marketing. “The M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Compact Brad Nailer was designed to fill that gap in the market by providing our users with greater accessibility to hard-to-reach areas while still delivering pneumatic-like performance.”

Weighing only 4.6lbs when paired with Milwaukee’s M12 REDLITHIUM™ 2.0 battery, the M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Brad Nailer provides an ergonomic design and the lightest weight of any cordless brad nailer allowing more productivity on the jobsite. When paired with an M12™ CP2.0 Battery, the M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Compact Brad Nailer provides over 700 nail fires on a single battery charge and zero ramp-up time. For additional run-time, the M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Compact Brad Nailer is fully compatible with all Milwaukee M12™ REDLITHIUM™ Batteries. Designed for finish carpentry applications, the M12 FUEL™ 18 Gauge Brad Nailer leverages a nitrogen air spring mechanism that allows users to consistently sink 5/8” – 1-½”18 gauge brad nails to the proper depth in both hardwoods and softer materials while leaving clean, consistent nail holes.

*M12 FUEL™ power tools are designed, engineered, and built to deliver extreme performance and productivity. All M12 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M12 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful sub-compact cordless tools in their class.
