Best Cordless Finish Nailers – Head to Head
The Future of Nailers
As I pointed out in the opening of this article things have been changing quite a lot in this sector over the last 10 years or so. There has been steady advancements and innovation all leading to the demise of pneumatic nailers, especially in the finish category. It’s clear to our team that cordless finish nailers are a viable option for any finish carpentry task.
One big take away from our crew was how well “battery only” cordless options performed. In fact, all of us felt the battery only options performed as well or better than the gas powered versions and they are also much quicker.
I remember a time not that long ago when cordless gas powered nailers were the wave of the future. Then came along SENCO with their innovative solution that eliminated the need for gas cylinders. After reviewing all these nailers our crew felt that the advantage now belongs to the battery only nailers, especially the models that utilize popular battery platforms like DEWALT, Ridgid, and Ryobi. These Brands offer so many tools on their battery platform that there’s no need to have a special battery and charger kicking around.
While all of these nailers perform very well at finish carpentry tasks, it’s clear to us that battery powered cordless finish nailers are the future and our bet is on tools that work on larger battery platforms that match up with a majority of the tools in our trailer.
