The finish nailers are available in either a straight (model F-16S) or a 20-degree angled version (model F-16A), and come with one battery, charger and canvas carrying case.

“We’ve had tremendous success converting pneumatic, battery, and gas-powered customers to our Fushion 15- and 18-guage models,” said Dave Moore, Senco’s director of Fusion technology, in a statement. “Now we have solutions for people who prefer a 16-gauge finish nailer.”

Fusion combines the best features of cordless and pneumatic technologies, according to Senco. Its patented Reflex Shot design delivers an instant trigger response so there isn’t any ramp-up time. The Fusion design also eliminates fuel cells, along with the expense, fumes and cleaning associated with them.

“Many gas tool users who have switched to Fusion technology report savings of up to $300 a year. Plus, we’ve eliminated the downtime cost of running out of fuel in the middle of a job,” said Moore.

The nailers have an 18-volt lithium-ion battery, which powers a small motor to run traditional pneumatic tool components. Users can choose either sequential firing or contact actuation depending on the job. The tool-free adjustable depth-of-drive feature combined with the nose-mounted LED work surface light ensures accurate fastener placement and counter sinks, according to the company.

The company also states that at 6 lbs., the Fusion nailers are nearly 2-1/2 lbs. lighter than competitive battery-powered models, and can be comfortably operated with one hand.
