AEG BKP18C600-0 18v Caulking Gun Spotted

Recently spotted on the AEG Australia website is a new BKP18C600-0 18v caulking gun. This is great news as this is the first caulking gun to hit AEG’s 18v battery platform with the only previous model available from AEG being an ancient 2.4v model from who knows how long ago.

My thoughts: Anyone who’s done a lot of caulking work knows that it can be very stressful on the hands and can cause long term injuries from the repetitive motion. The use of a battery operated caulking gun minimizes both of those issues and also allows users to lay down adhesive or silicone faster than with a traditional caulking gun and with better consistency. Anyone already in the AEG 18v battery line will now be able to take advantage of these benefits with this new unit. With several nice features such as a belt hook, 6 speed settings, a variable speed trigger and 4,500 (1,011 lbs) Newtons of force, this unit has everything a professional user needs to get large jobs done quickly.

There’s also a good chance this will come to north america as Ridgid which would be good since Ridgid hasn’t had a cordless caulking gun since their X2 line however that’s just my hope as there’s been no official info from Ridgid about a new model.

I have the original Ridgid caulk gun. While it works well, it is sized for the larger tubes. It will run a standard tube as well, but being sized for the larger tubes makes it large and unwieldy for most stuff. The pictures of the AEG look like it’s just for the standard tubes, but can you confirm that? If it is and it becomes a Ridgid I’ll probably buy it.

This AEG model takes both 300ml and 600ml tubes. So it takes the regular “small” tubes and the larger ones. For comparison, the small 10.5 oz tubes are about 310ml equivalent in Milli liters
