RIDGID HyperDrive 18V Brushless Nailers R09890B / R09892B (18ga Brad / 16ga Finish)

Fast, powerful, and extreme run-times —- 3 easy ways to describe the new RIDGID 18v Brushless Nailers.

These new cordless nailers are compatible with all of the 18v Ridgid Batteries, and require no airlines or fuel cells to operate — giving you a true cordless tool without any additional costs to operate them.  Because they do have brushless motors, the batteries seemingly last forever and one charge will easily get anyone through an entire day.  Think about trimming out a house & not having to deal with a compressor, air lines, or fuel cells!

Cycle-times are also another impressive feature.  Specifically, there is none.  Literally as soon as you move it, you can fire again & again & again.  Some cordless nailers need time to spool up to “build up pressure” prior to firing, which causes a somewhat inconvenient delay….but the Hyperdrive Nailers literally fire almost instantly when you pull the trigger.

As far as run-times go, both the brad nailer & finish nailer blew us away!  These shot over 4,000 nails (combined), and did not have issues with jambs or misfires.  Unlike some other cordless nailers, these also have a dry-fire lockout to prevent damage to the tool and you “thinking” you are nailing (when you could just be marring the surface of the wood).

The biggest drawback to any cordless nailer will be the size/weight.  Keep in mind that although these may use the same nails as a pneumatic version, they are going to weigh more and typically will be larger in general.  If you are used to working with lightweight tools, or very compact tools — the cordless nailers may take some getting used to.  But, when you consider not having to drag around hoses or compressors, they actually offer a lot more convenience.

One last thing to consider is the freedom you will have by not being “tied” to the wall — aka a full time power source.  That could mean a wall outlet or generator….neither of which are needed with these.  On top of a ladder, or outside enjoying the sunshine — you only need a battery pack and you can get the job done.

Because both of these are RIDGID Power Tools, they qualify for the RIDGID L.S.A. Lifetime Service Agreement!  More specifically, these nailers are covered with FREE Pistons, FREE Seals, and FREE Driver Blades — FOR LIFE!
