About 2 months ago, we wondered what the 2nd generation Craftsman Nextec Hammerhead cordless auto hammer would look like. Well, it looks like we have an answer! As you can see, the G2 Hammerhead features an articulating head that allows it to reach awkward or tighter workspaces with greater ease.
The G2 Hammerhead’s articulating head can be set at 90°, 45°, and 0° (straight). It operates at 3600 impacts per minute, and can hammer common and finish nails up t o 3.5 inches in length.* It also features a new LED light for illuminating work areas, an electric brake, and a 3-color LED fuel gauge.
Included with the G2 Hammerhead kit will be the new Craftsman NEXTEC QuickBoost Battery Charger, a 12-volt battery, and carrying case.
The G2 Hammerhead is expected to be released in May 2011 with an MSRP of $100.
* As we saw in our auto hammer review, such tools can drive 3.5″ nails, but this is not something we recommend if other options are available.
