Milwaukee is soon launching a new M18 Fuel cordless 16 gauge straight finish nailer, model 3020.

The new Milwaukee cordless finish nailer joins the brand’s M18 Fuel 15 gauge and 16 gauge angled finish nailers, which launched in early 2022.

Milwaukee says that this new straight finish nailer was “redesigned the nailer from the ground up, giving carpenters and remodelers the power, performance, and runtime they need.”

This is not Milwaukee’s first cordless 16 Gauge straight finish nailer; the 2741 launched in 2016.

Advertised as having a zero ramp-up time, the new nailer is ready to drive nails without delay. There’s no delay between pulling the trigger and the nail firing, giving users “a pneumatic fire rate without the hassles of an air hose.”

As with Milwaukee’s other M18 Fuel cordless nailers, this one does not require any gas cartridges to operate, and no maintenance is required.
