Following on the heels of PORTER-CABLE’s 20V Max* 18-gauge Brad Nailer and Crown Stapler, which were released last October, the company now is introducing this new 20V Max* 16-gauge Straight Finish Nailer. It’s packaged in a kit form with a charger and 1.5 Ah 20V Max* lithium-ion battery as model PCC792LA. Or you can buy it as a bare tool, without charger or battery (model PCC792B) and use the battery from another 20V Max* cordless PORTER-CABLE tool instead.
The new nail gun can drive straight-clip nails ranging from 1- to 2-1/2-in. long, and its magazine holds 100 at a time. When powered by a 4.0Ah battery (sold separately), the nailer will drive up to 1,000 nails on a single charge. It will sink about 375 nails using a 1.5 Ah battery.
The tool weighs 5.7 lbs. without a battery installed, and its ergonomic handle has a rubber overmold for added comfort and control during use. This and PORTER-CABLE’s other 20V Max* cordless nailers don’t require a compressor, air hose or fuel cartridges. Yet, their internal motor design provides consistent power needed to tackle projects ranging from baseboard and crown molding installation to cabinet and furniture assembly.
PORTER-CABLE covers your purchase with a 3-year limited warranty, 90-day money back guarantee and a 1-year free service contract. You can see the new 16-gauge Straight Finish Nailer in both kit (PCC792LA; $279) and bare (PCC792B; $199) iterations at Lowe’s stores now or by shopping online at lowes.com.
