For example a DL-59-T13E with a 2″ barrel can fill a 1/4 inch x 1/8 inch joint the length of a football field in less than 2 minutes. That’s equivalent to 202 feet per minute. And unlike an air-powered tool, there are no hoses to get in the way. Albion’s Cordless guns are the only tools that can consistently perform to such high standards for extended periods of time.

Cordless Guns with State-of-the-art Performance, Portability, and Control.

Fully Assembled- ready to go right out of the box.

  • Total Dispensing Control- set maximum speed rate and fine tune with variable speed trigger.
  • High Productivity- as incredible as this seems, a joint 1/4″ x 1/8″ and the length of a football field can be filled in less than 2 minutes. With a rod speed of 23 inches per minute, jobs get done faster.
  • Power Efficient- dispense over 185 latex 10 oz cartridges or over 60 cold urethane 10 oz cartridges on one charge.
  • Ergonomic- design greatly reduces trigger-hand fatigue and wrist strain.
