Over the years, nailers have come a long way. In the past decade, we have been able to cut the air hose and lose the loud compressor. While that is true for a lot of nailers in the finish, brad, and pin nailer range, it’s still not true for the framing nailers. Let’s face it, if you are framing all day long, you are still tied to an air hose and compressor. However, if you are doing smaller jobs or punch list items, cordless is the way to go, which brings me to the Milwaukee Cordless Framing Nailer.
We reviewed the Milwaukee Cordless Framing nailer a while back but if you haven’t read it, here is a quick rundown. As of today, it’s our favorite cordless framing nailer. While other nailers use gas cartridges, the Milwaukee doesn’t. While other nailers have a ramp-up time before firing, the Milwaukee doesn’t. While others still are not consistent in driving nails deep, the Milwaukee is consistent.
So when it comes to cordless framing nailers, Milwaukee has the edge on the competition in every way. I have been using it on my house project and can not find one complaint about the nailer. Sure it’s pricey but worth every penny for the build quality, the convenience, and the reliability.

Milwaukee Cordless Framing Nailer – Impressions
If you read the full review of the Milwaukee Cordless Framing Nailer 30 degree nailer, you know in our opinion this is the best cordless nailer on the market. With zero ramp-up time, a consistent fire, and sinking all most every nail with precision, it’s hard to beat.
I love the way this nailer works, everything from adjusting the depth to turning it on and off to switching between bump and sequential mode. I also love how a user can expand the magazine capacity if they want.
Milwaukee Cordless Framing Nailer – Wrap Up
Bottom line, while this won’t replace a pneumatic nailer for those who are framing all day long and shooting nails like Yosemite Sam chasing Buggs Bunny, it’s the perfect solution for smaller jobs down to punch list items. I put a 1500 sq ft addition on my house with two other guys and this is a nailer I would have used for a majority of the job. In my opinion, this is the best cordless framing nailer on the market.
