TOWSON, Md. – PORTER-CABLE announces its first line of 20V MAX* Lithium Ion cordless finish tools which include an 18 GA Brad Nailer and an 18 GA Narrow Crown Stapler. Each of the 20V MAX* Nailer and Stapler eliminates the need for big noisy compressors, hoses or costly fuel cartridges. The tools operate on any PORTER-CABLE 20V MAX* Lithium Ion battery. The motor design provides the consistent power needed to complete finishing applications, from baseboards and crown molding to cabinet and furniture assembly. The 18 GA Brad Nailer has a fastener length capacity of 5/8” to 2” and a magazine capacity of 100 nails. Weighing only 5.1 lbs without a battery, this lightweight and balanced tool contains a rubber over-mold ergonomic handle that provides maximum comfort and control during use. The 5.3 lbs bare 18 GA Narrow Crown Stapler incorporates many of the same features that the 18 GA Brad Nailer has, excluding the tool-free jam release. The 18 Gauge 1/4" Crown Stapler accepts a fastener length capacity of 1/2” to 1-1/2” and a magazine capacity of 100 Staples. For more information, visit www.portercable.com
