Cordless finish tools expand PORTER-CABLE’s 20V MAX* Linked System™ tools for the tradesman
 
Mississauga, ON. (April 14, 2016) – PORTER-CABLE announces its first line of 20V MAX* Lithium Ion cordless finish tools which includes an 18 GA Brad Nailer and a 16 gauge Straight Finish Nailer. 
 
Each of the 20V MAX* Nailers 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. The nailer is capable of driving up to 1300 nails per charge using a 4.0Ah PORTER-CABLE battery (sold separately), and up to 450 nails per charge** using a 1.5Ah PORTER-CABLE battery (included in kitted offering). 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 Brad Nailer includes several tool-free features including a tool-free jam release, tool-free depth adjustment wheel, and a tool-free stall release lever. The tool-free stall release lever resets the driver blade after a nail jam or stall to provide ease of use on the jobsite. Two LED lights illuminate work surfaces as well as blink to alert the user when the battery is low or if it has stalled or jammed. The nailer includes an oversized belt hook and two no-mar rubber tips that help prevent material damage and features a safety lock-off switch for transport or storage.
 
Greg Weston, Director of Marketing for Stanley Black & Decker Canada, Global Tools and Storage Division, Canada “PORTER-CABLE is synonymous with woodworking and finishing –battery-operated nailers are the natural progression of the 20V MAX* system. This new line will provide the tradesman with convenience and efficiency over pneumatic equipment.”
 
Optimal for use in remodeling and fine woodworking applications, PORTER-CABLE nailers are ideal for tradesmen of all types, including general contractors, remodelers, woodworkers, and enthusiasts. In addition to its initial 18 GA offerings PORTER-CABLE will expand its nailer line in 2016 with a 16 GA Straight Finish Nailer (PCC792LA).  Available this May 2016, each of the 20V MAX* nailers  come with a 3 year limited warranty, 90 day money back guarantee, and 1 year free service contract.
