MAKITA INTRODUCES IMPROVED 18 GAUGE BRAD NAILER

The new 18 Gauge 2” Brad Nailer (AF506) features improved ergonomics and a built-in air duster to provide convenient air flow to clear work surfaces.

February 18, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the innovation leader in power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of the new 18 Gauge 2” Brad Nailer (AF506).  The AF506 features improved ergonomics and a built-in air duster to provide convenient air flow to clear work surfaces.
 
“This new 18 Gauge Brad Nailer packs plenty of power for trim work, baseboard and crown molding installation, cabinets, flooring, and other wood finishing applications,” said Andrew Camp, Product Manager, Residential Construction. “With the improvements to ergonomics, the AN506 matches the look and feel of other Makita finish nailers.”
 
Makita’s purpose-built motor drives a range of 18-gauge brad nails 5/8” to 2” into hard or soft wood applications. The aluminum body, magazine, and cylinder provide strength and durability to the tool. The side loading magazine holds up to 100 nails for maximum efficiency.
 
Features of the AF506 include a tool-less depth adjustment that drive brads to the precise level on the wood’s surface for a wide variety of finish applications and a dual nail reload indicator window alerts the user when to reload nails to avoid dry firing. To clear jammed nails more efficiently, the AF506 has a quick-release cam-lock to open the nail guide assembly.  Other features include a reversible belt hook, an integrated rubber soft grip, and a multi-directional exhaust port that rotates 360 degrees to direct exhaust air away from work.
 
The machined nose piece guides the drive blade to precisely contact each brad and its narrowness allows easy nailing access in confined areas. The AF506 has a non-marring rubber nose piece to protect wood finish from tool recoil, as well as flank-mounted rubber bumpers to prevent scratches when the tool is laid on its side.
