Cordless 21-gauge brad nailer

Grex Power Tools says its GCH850 is the first and only cordless 21 gauge brad nailer in the market. It has the ability to drive nails up to 2-in. in length, with a holding power close to that of an 18-gauge brad nail, and a hole size closer to that of a 23-gauge pin. This results in time and cost savings by being able to go onto a jobsite with only one nailer instead of two different tools, Grex adds.
