The first cordless nailer from metabo 28 February 2023

Metabo has announced the launch of its first cordless nailer, the NFR 18 LTX 90 BL, which combines flexibility and power. The new tool has been specially designed for the toughest jobs on the construction site.

Manufactured without a cable, gas cartridge or compressed air hose, the new nailer allows versatility while removing a common tripping hazard. The tool also saves additional costs, as the need for replacement gas cartridges is eliminated.

"In our cordless nailer, we combine pneumatics with a battery - a technology that brings together the best of two worlds. This means that the cordless nailer has all the advantages of a pneumatic nailer, but does not require a cord, gas or hose,” explains Albert Werner, product manager, Metabo. 

Developed for tough construction site use, the tool has a particularly high impact force and is able to fire up to two nails per second. “Our new machine can fire up to 550 shots with an 18V battery pack with 4.0 ampere hours. This means that the cordless nailer can easily keep up with pneumatic nailers and is also safer and more convenient,” adds Werner. 

Designed with a tool-free adjustment of the driving depth, the Metabo nailer allows precise work with various types of wood. The tool is equipped with two settings, a single-shot mode and a contact release for fast nailing, which can be switched at the push of a button.
