Milwaukee® Introduces Industry's First M12(TM) Cordless Palm Nailer

MILWAUKEE, WI - Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation continues to expand their M12(TM) LITHIUM-ION system with the introduction of the industry's first cordless palm nailer. This ground-breaking advancement in technology delivers the performance professionals have come to expect from pneumatic nailers without the burden of hauling a hose and compressor.

"A revolutionary impacting mechanism and new cutting edge battery technology combine to deliver unmatched performance," says Corey Dickert, Associate Product Manager, Cordless for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "Not only is this tool capable of driving a 16D 3-1/2" nail in under 2 seconds, it will also deliver impressive run time at up to 100 of these nails per charge.

At only 3.4lbs and 6.5" from palm to tip, the M12(TM) Palm Nailer easily operates in tight spaces, providing a unique solution in places that are unreachable by a traditional nail gun. The palm nailer also features a 6D-16D industrial magnetic collet to securely hold framing nails for one-handed use and all metal gear housing for jobsite durability.

Though the new tool is the ideal solution for a professional framer or remodeler, the cordless palm nailer can be used in applications far beyond what is commonly associated with a compressor and hose. Electricians, plumbers and HVAC technicians now have a close quarter nailing solution for canned lighting, electrical boxes, half nail clamps and more.

Among the first products powered by REDLITHIUM(TM) battery technology, the new palm nailer will deliver unmatched run-time, performance and durability for the professional tradesman. With constant innovation in Lithium-Ion and plans to grow the M12(TM) cordless platform in the future, MILWAUKEE® continues to expand its leadership position in the sub-compact category. The M12(TM) platform will continue to offer innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability.
