Lowe’s Kobalt tool brand surprised fans recently, with the launch of a new 24V Max XTR cordless brad nailer.
Kobalt announced the new cordless nailer with a cheeky – and true – post on social media, with the caption starting with:
It took us long enough…
Lowe’s has been steadily expanding their lineup of Kobalt 24V Max Li-ion cordless power tools, and this was definitely a hole that needed filling.
ToolGuyd readers first spotted a new Kobalt XTR 18-gauge brad nailer listing last month (you guys are awesome!), but that was a bare tool. It turns out that Lowe’s is launching the nailer as a kit, with battery and charger.
The new nailer is said to be “the perfect tool for most applications, such as residential trim work, cabinetry, furniture, and similar finishing applications.”
It “is equipped with a pre-charged internal gas chamber to drive a piston which gives a user a similar feel to traditional pneumatic nail gun performance.”
We’ve seen other cordless nailers with similar drive mechanisms before. (What’s your stands on battery-powered nailers like this?)
The Kobalt XTR brad nailer accepts 18-gauge brad nails 5/8″ to 2-1/8″ long, and has a 110 nail capacity.
As with most other cordless brad nailers, it features both sequential and bump driving modes. Lowe’s description says this is done via “electronic selection.”
The nailer also features a brushless motor, tool-free driving depth adjustment, dry-fire lockout, a flashing LED that indicates low nails, and a dual LED worklight.
It also has an “electronic control panel that allows the user to easily turn the tool on with the touch of a button.” Features like this help to prevent unintentional activation in a tool bag or box during transport.
The kit comes with the nailer, a compact 2Ah battery, charger, and tool bag.
