Ridgid has come out with a new 18V brushless brad nailer, model R09891B, that features Clean Drive technology for more consecutive perfect drives.
The new Ridgid R09891B nailer features a brushless motor and is said to be more compact and lighter weight than its predecessor (R09890B).
The new Ridgid cordless brad nailer has a small nose for increased visibility and is said to drive nails flush at all angles and without slipping.
Ridgid describes the new nailer as delivering all the power of a pneumatic nailer in a cordless tool.
The 18 gauge brad nailer can drive nails from 5/8″ to 2-1/8″ long.

It has been nearly 6 years since Ridgid released their first 18V brushless brad nailer. That model, R09890B, has had a fairly good run, earning a solid reputation.
A lot can happen in 6 years, and Ridgid says that their new model is more compact and lighter, which is always a good thing when talking about cordless nailers. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the new model’s LED worklight is also a new development not found on the older version.
This new Ridgid 18V brad nailer is part of a broader expansion of their cordless power tool lineup in 2021, with more tool news on the way.
