Grex Green Buddy 18 gauge Brad Nailer, 1850GB

Item #
80% of 100

When you want the secure hold of a nail, but the minimal hole of a pin, reach for the Grex Green Buddy pneumatic brad nailer. It boasts a powerful motor that can drive brad nails up to 2" long in the hardest of woods, yet has a tapered driver tip that leaves the smallest mark possible. The included no-mar tips make sure the rebound won't dent soft surfaces. Every element of the Green Buddy bradder is engineered thoughtfully with quality and convenience in mind, from the stepped magazine profile, which allows you to angle the gun into corners, to the convenient belt hook, swiveling air coupler, and auto trigger lockout, which alerts you when you've run out of nails. Also available; 18 gauge brads, replacement no-mar tips, and replacement driver kits (each sold separately).

  • Driver tip is tapered to create the smallest mark possible for minimal puttying
  • Posit-Fire™ depth control with detents won't back out, even after driving hundreds of shots
  • Stepped magazine allows tool to access corners
  • Dual firing options offer selective actuation between sequential and contact fire modes
  • Extra no-mar tip attached to magazine for when you lose the first one
  • Allen key storage on nailer for quick convenient access
  • Penetrates fasteners through the hardest materials
  • Compact and lightweight design for improved maneuverability

  • Patented Integrated-Safety™: Smooth and accurate operation, super fine narrow nose and the ability to drive nails at any angle
  • One-piece driver design made from precision machined, hardened steel for optimal balance of performance and durability
  • Narrow nose reaches tight areas and corners for detailed trim work
  • Posit-Lock™ Nose Cover dramatically reduces jamming
  • Hardened steel nose piece is precision machined for accurate nail feeding to minimize jamming
  • Removable no-mar tip prevents marring of work surface
  • Rear exhaust keeps air directed away from you and your workpiece
  • Fastener indicator to see when reloading is necessary
  • Auto trigger lockout prevents empty (dry) firing and alerts user need to reload

Great gun!
So far, the best 18 gauge gun I’ve owed. Would definitely purchase another if need arose.

A very nice tool. Non-marking, easy to use, and I love the adjustable belt hook.

Woodworking Experience:
Great features, lackluster performance in brads less than 2".
Had my hopes up that this gun would outperform my old Porter-Cable nailer that finally wore out. I love everything about it except it regularly jams using any length of brad less than 2", which pretty much defeats the purpose. I love their 23g pinner though!
