Top tools: Grex Cordless Nail Gun
The first cordless nail gun offering from Grex features a very unique power system. Believe it or not, the GC 1850 brad nailer is powered by two AAA alkaline batteries, the same ones you pop in a kid’s toy. Armed with those AAA’s, and a 1,300-shot fuel cartridge, the GC1850 is capable of driving 50,000 ½” to 2”, 18-gauge brads per battery cycle. Weighing in at just 4.4 lbs., the GC1850 is lighter (by as much as three pounds) than its competitors and features a dial control on top to adjust driving depth depending on the material.
