The Senco Fusion F-18 Brad Nailer

Senco is another brand joining our already huge arsenal of tools.  Senco with it’s new Fusion 18V brad nailer is a leading innovator.  Being small, lightweight, and easy to hold, the Senco Fusion F-18 is a solely battery-operated brad nailer that is just as convenient as it is powerful.  The F-18 is a great solution for a tradesperson or anyone who does not want the hassle of a compressor.

Understandably, most professionals are cautious about trying a battery-powered brad nailer, but rest assured, this brad nailer is not like any other.  Generally, battery-powered nailers don’t seem fast enough to keep up with the professional due to the nailer’s ramp-up time but the Senco Fusion overcomes this problem.  The Senco Fusion F-18 has is NO ramp-up time and NO gas cells to buy.  Their patented reflex shot design provides an instant shot when the trigger is pulled.  The heart of the Fusion technology is the permanently sealed drive cylinder, which gets its driving power from compressed nitrogen in an enclosed system.  After the driver is released, the motor takes the power from the battery to push the driver back into place in just a fraction of a second.  This reduces the power needed from the battery, allowing an impressive 600 fires per charge.  The F-18 is lightweight, weighing just over 6 lbs.  With a nose-mounted LED light, adjustable belt hook, thumbwheel depth-guide, and selectable drive switch to quickly go from bump fire to sequential operation, the Senco Fusion is a great new item for anyone needing the portability and convenience of a cordless nailer.

After years of installing windows and doors and trying many of the brad nailers available, I would use the F-18 in a heartbeat.  At the end of the day, all a person has to do is try it out and they will be convinced that the Senco Fusion is a game-changer.  The F-18 has the power of a pneumatic tool, combined with the convenience of a cordless.

  1. I’m renovations contractor and I’ve owned the 18 Gauge nailer for about 1 1/2 weeks now and I have to say it does everything that they say. I’ve only had the odd nail that was not fully driven to depth using 2″ brad nails. I was kinda skeptical at first about buying it, but that has completely changed after using it for awhile. Its alittle on the heavy side for finish nailer but you get used to it. Sure nice not to have to run a hose and setup compressor anymore (not that it was a big problem).


  2. Nice product review. I am trying to learn about Brad Nailer because I have to make room for my own so I have to buy it. After read your article I think The Senco Fusion F-18 Brad Nailer were best for me.
