With its compact, durable design, the Bosch BNS200-18 18-Gauge Brad Nailer drives nails quickly and reliably without weighing you down. It features Bosch's exclusive "Full-Force Technology," which means the tool is specially engineered to direct 100% of its working energy to the fastener, eliminating wasted power and space.

The BNS200-18 18-Gauge Brad Nailer offers:
  • "Full-Force Technology" for consistently flush results.
  • A wide 60-120 psi operating range for small and large projects.
  • Tool-less adjustments for quick, easy control.

A slim body and narrow nose give you total control in tight spaces. View larger.

With "Full-Force Technology," air powerfully drives the piston down the tool's cylinder. View larger.
Bosch Full-Force Technology
This nailer is part of a new line of Bosch tools, which utilize Full-Force Technology to consistently drive nails flush, even in industrial lumber. This revolutionary engineering works without return chambers that add bulk and weight and create wasted energy on the strike.

When the trigger is pulled on the BNS200-18, air drives the piston down the cylinder. As the piston strikes, air is exhausted out the front of the tool for 100-percent air power and no wasted energy.

Big Power in a Small Package
The BNS200-18 is 20% smaller than its competitors, but provides 10% more power, giving you high-performance results when driving 5/8- to 2-inch 18-gauge nails. The BNS200-18 offers an operating range of 60–120 psi, so you can quickly complete small woodworking projects or add detail and trim to larger projects.

The slim body and narrow nose give you an excellent line of sight and maximum control, even in tight spaces. And no-mar tip storage protects your tips.

This nailer is perfect for crafting and installing cabinetry, nailing in blind spots or around corners, hanging wall paneling, or repairing window and door casings. Also, it eliminates the need for pre-drilling, which can cause wood to split.

Measuring 2.25 x 9.75 x 9.0 inches (WxHxL) and weighing just 2.1 pounds, this handy tool won't weigh you down, even during heavy-duty, all-day jobs.

Tool-Less Operation for Ease of Use
The BNS200-18 offers the ease of straightforward, tool-less operation. Make adjustments to the air exhaust, fine-tune the depth of drive, clear out jams with the quick-clear function, and switch between bump and sequential firing with the selectable trigger--all without the need for a wrench or additional tools.

Prevents Tool Damage
To help ensure long-term, reliable use, the BNS200-18 features a dry fire lock-out, which prevents damage to the workpiece and the tool's internal components by eliminating blank firing. Additionally, this brad nailer comes equipped with an inline self-cleaning air filter that keeps debris away from the valve and O-ring, preventing wear, tear, and compromised performance.

The BNS200-18 comes with a one-year unconditional warranty.

What's in the Box
Nailer, one pair of safety glasses, one no-mar tip, and carrying case.

Bosch's first foray into the world of nail guns seems pretty successful to me. This gun is light, comfortable, affordable (no fancy "angled" nails required), quiet, and has oodles of power. Even starving it at 80 psi, it has no trouble sinking (and setting) 2" brads into any of the MDF or Poplar stock I've got laying around. The adjustable exhaust port is a nice touch, and it refuses to fire at all once the magazine goes empty. The case is also roomy, leaving ample space for nails and other accessories.

Unfortunately, I can't say it's perfect. The pin that holds the trigger in doesn't seem like it's held on very firmly by that tiny little washer, and I shudder to think what will happen in the event that it should go out. Mine also came with a pretty severe cosmetic flaw in the form of what appears to be a gash in one of the metal surfaces. This gash was painted over, so it's more than likely just a flaw in the casting which should not cause any problems in usage, but still, QA should have caught it. And lastly, they don't give you any kind of fitting to actually stick it on the end of your hose. A minor nitpick to be sure, but come on, how much do these things cost? Don't make me drive back to the store to buy another coupler.

Nevertheless, it gets the job done and gets it done well. Even with the minor cosmetic defect, the fit-and-finish is notably superior to that of the equivalent Hitachi gun which I had been considering before these came out. I think anyone who routinely builds picture frames, cabinetry or puts up moulding would be extremely satisfied with this gun's performance. You'll definitely want to wear goggles, though; the exhaust is unbelievably powerful, so if you forget to rotate the port away from your face, you're going to be crying.

I bought this gun without any knowledge of its performance. I only went with the idea that all the Bosch tools I own have been great. This gun is not what is advertised. It's size nor its weight is not smaller than other 18 ga. guns that I own (Bostich, Porter-Cable, Senco). I was hoping to find an 18 gauge gun that would sink 2" nails consistently. I just finished a job trimming a house with 3/4" pre-finished fir for casing and base. The 18 ga. is used to diminish the size of holes that need to be puttied but if you have to set nails manually with a nail set your nail hole becomes noticeably larger. Not good when doing high-end stain-grade work. The time it takes to constantly set nails manually is not cost effective. I used this gun to trim out one door and put it away after I had to manually set 6 nails. The compressor was set to 115 psi and the depth adjustment on the gun was set to sink nails all the way. The Senco is still the gun I am going to use. It will shoot 2 1/8" nails and rarely leaves them proud. The Bosch looks good but needs some work before I will consider using it.

Got one from amazon expecting a great bosch product but was far from it. As soon as I plugged it up to the air hose it started leaking air from the front piston so bad my compressor stayed running. Contacted amazon for return with replacement thinking I just got a bad one and ill give it another shot. Amazon did great had another one at my door step in 2 days and picked the other one up at no charge. Next day at work plugged it up and was working alright but having a little trouble setting nails (only 1 1/4") was not real impressed but figured I would deal with it. Next thing I new it started leaking air from the exact same spot as the one I had just returned and only got worse from there. By the end of the day it would shoot a 1 1/4 about half way into the wood and the air leak only got worse. Returned this one for a refund. Very disappointed with this product and do not recommend purchasing. I always heard bosch was supposed to be one of the best on the market but after this experience it will be my first and last with them. Thanks but no thanks ill be sticking with my senco and Makita products. I do have to give amazon 2 thumbs up great customer service ill still be dealing with them.

I am doing a full reno of my first floor and put up doorway trim and base molding; this nailer worked flawlessly.

I was using an 18 ga bostitch nailer before, and it was not very consistent. The bosch nailer sunk 2" and 1 1/4" nails at exactly the same depth every time.

I haven't used the bump feature yet, but I'm not sure if I ever will.

I was skeptical at some of the mixed reviews, however, I am not a contractor. There is no doubt that I will be looking at Bosch's finish nailer in the near future.

This is the second Bosch 18-guage brad nailer I've purchased, so both of us can do similar jobs at the same time. I have no idea how someone could not be able to drive nails with these; we've been working with ironwood and ipe for about six months and have no problems driving up to and including 2-inch fastners.

The first gun is a bit over a year old and while I am meticulous about tools, it hasn't been babied. Compared to the new gun, it's lost nothing after probably 5000 - 6000 nails driven at maximum depth settings and maximum operating pressures into the hardest woods. We've had one operator technique jam, and I think the Bosch naileers have the easiest and best jam-clearing of any nailer I've used or tried - you don't open the nose, you open the magazine. Wham, you're done.

Yeah, you can buy better 18-guage nailers - the Cadex comes to mind - for three times this price, and you can buy worse nailers for 50% more than these cost, but for daily use, in the shop, the Bosch nailers have proven to be rock-solid and totally dependable.

And they feel good in your hand.
