Milwaukee M12 FUEL 18 Gauge Brad Nailer 2541-20 – Features

Milwaukee M12 FUEL 18 Gauge Brad Nailer 2541-20

We’ve seen plenty of 18 gauge nailers as battery powered nailers. That’s nothing new, however what impresses me about this new 18 gauge nailer is that it’s a 12 volt nailer. I’ve only seen them as 18 or 20V volt nailers, so it’s impressive that Milwaukee has been able to make one for their 12 volt system. Though we shouldn’t be surprised by them as they do this kind of stuff all the time.

As you can see above, the new M12 Fuel 18 gauge nailer is puny, it’s not that much bigger than a battery powered T50 style stapler. This is thanks to their FUEL brushless motor and is also featuring their nitrogen air spring nailer tech. This helps with not only zero ramp up time for instant nail fires, but also the ability to set nails flush or sub-flush into soft and hardwoods.

It can set nails up to 1-1/2 inches which is probably the only drawback of this little guy that it can’t do 2 inch brads. But it’s not that bad of a tradeoff since you get a very compact and lighweight nailer. This weighs only 4.6 lbs with a 2ah battery and only 4.2 lbs baretool. Cordless nailers haven’t been known for being the lightest since they are carrying around the extra heft of a motor and battery so weight reductions is greatly appreciated. The compact size also means this nailer can fit where others can’t thanks to its 9.8 inch length.

Other features include single fire and bump fire modes with selector button as well as power button. It has a belt clip for easy carrying and tool free depth adjustment and jam clearing latch. It has a magazine capacity of 110 nails and can fire up to 700 nails per charge though no mention of what battery capacity per claim. My guess is 700 nails per charge with a 2ah battery since that’s the one they mentioned for their weight claim.
