SENCO 16-GAUGE ANGLED FUSION NAILER
This 16-gauge angled finish nailer is Senco's third Fusion gun – a 15-gauge model came out last year and an 18-gauge model came out in July. Unlike other hoseless guns, which burn fuel or rely on battery-powered flywheels, this one is built around a sealed cylinder that is charged with nitrogen gas. A battery-powered motor compresses the gas by lifting an internal piston. Squeezing the trigger releases the piston, which drives the nail pneumatically. Using this 6-pound tool is faster than using a flywheel gun (Senco claims it can fire three shots per second) and there's no need to buy fuel cells or clean out the residue from burnt fuel.
¦ Price: $420 for tool, 18-volt lithium-ion battery, charger, and case. www.senco.com.
