We only use paslode guns. We don't even break out the air guns anymore. The only thing we use air for is the Fusionloc deck guns.

Re: Cordless Framing Nailer Test.


For gas nailers I've tried a few and still like the Paslode best. The latest gen Paslode nailers are much improved in reliability over the old early versions. The angled trim nailer has always been one of Paslodes best guns imo. The Makita gun in the test looks very much like a copy of a Paslode to me...

I had the Dewalt. Couldn't stand that gun. Heavy, had to wait on it. Gas is cheap and worth it to not have to carry a heavy gun. I can hook the Paslode on my bags without issues like the Dewalt.

Re: Cordless Framing Nailer Test.


This fall in October Milwaukee is coming out with a battery framer. I have the next gen 18 gauge trim nailer and love it. The framer could potentially become a super early Christmas present.

Re: Cordless Framing Nailer Test.


I live the paslode, but it is hard to get nails locally. I need to run 20 minutes north, so an hour when I need just a small box for repairs.

Normally, I'd just have a box, but when I don't...

Re: Cordless Framing Nailer Test.


Do you frame the main deck structure with nails? Or just blocking and such?

Nails and any hardware my engineers call for. Sometimes I add lags or screws.

Re: Cordless Framing Nailer Test.


Use Paslode fuel for this and the Makita finish nailer I have.

The framer says 34deg clipped nails, but I have been using 30deg clipped and offset full head with no issues whatsoever.

Nice, and how well does it work? Looks very similar to a Paslode...

I have 3 of the Dewalts. Been using them for 3 years and still going strong. They are heavy, but they hold up well to abuse.

Works great.
My main use is when I have to close in door R.O.'s.

Mostly they are an inch or inch and a half off, so I rip plywood down for filler.

I will see how things go in the winter according to that video.
I have the Makita gas 16ga finish nailer and I have used that in the winter and not had any issues with it. If the temp goes into single digits I would bring it in, but otherwise it stays in the truck.

We just added the latest generation version. We have a first gen unit too. The new gun was sinking 3" .131 clipped head nails to nail (2) 1-3/4" lvls together. Not sure what they changed but it was better than our first gen unit for sure...still heavy though. We decided to frame our next house all cordless if possible. We shall see.
