Re: Compressor For A Framing Nailer!


I am looking at getting the Senco SN902XP Lightweight framing nailer for the Rolair compressor. Is this a good nailer? and could it use 20 degree paper tape nails?

I don't have any experience with that gun. I'd personally be a bit leery of Senco these days. They're not producing tools of excellent quality across the board like they did 10 or so years ago.

I know a lot of guys here swear by the Hitachi FRH framer. I'd look at that, a Max, or a Duo-Fast if it were me.

I read a review in JLC a while ago about that senco and the reviewer didnt feel it would stand up to professional use.

That said I just bought a max 28 degree framing gun and love it. Would recommend either the max or a paslode stick gun

We have a few of the Paslode framers & they're workhorses. Can't go wrong with Paslode.

Unfortunately, they don't make a FRH gun - that's left to Duo-Fast, their sister company. They're a good bet as well, in my experience.

I should add that the Paslode guns do take offset FRH nails - & no plastic shrapnel!

Thats partly why I went with the 28 degree. I hate the plastic bits shooting all over the place.

Just one more thing to cleanup. As for the nails I haven't found a place that actually sells the clipped head paslode nails, they all sell the offset FRH.

The same for the 28 degrees.

Re: Compressor For A Framing Nailer!


yeah, all the paslode brand nails I run into are offset FRH, but you can buy Grip-Rite and what not with clipped head still. I fire all sorts of brands through my Paslode PF350. As long as its about the 30-33 degree collation with paper tape your good to go.

My biggest problem with my rigid 5gal is that it blows the breaker on half of the jobs I used it outside with owner not home And no access to the service panel

Re: Compressor For A Framing Nailer!


I have one of the Max 28 deg. guns and like it alot , uses the bostich stick nails as well, and will probably get another as my aging Senco is definitely heavier (700Xp) and obsolete now.... I was just looking at the Makita 5200, any thoughts on that one ?

Why don't you have a look at the Hitachi FRH gun Kent has for sale?

Seems like an excellent deal on a quality gun... https://www.contractortalk.com/f46/hi...5/#post1512069

If you guys want a great compressor made in USA check out quincy compessors. They make a few small portable models. We have a 80 gal in the shop that is amazing. They are top line but reasonable price.

Second the Makita for an affordable, quiet, tank of a compressor.
