Is it the gun or the air line that doesn't work in the cold? We used to have all bostich guns and then switched to paslode when they got old. Bostich were nice except the little teeth broke off easy. The paslodes have been awesome. Plenty of power and less breaking than the bostich. My buddy uses all hitachi. The new ones seem real nice too, pretty comparable to the paslodes. A little less power though

Yep, a good solid 2-3 nails a second. Not air nailer speed for sure, but leaps and bounds faster than a cordless paslode.

A little bit nose heavy once you start running out of nails, and it only fits one stick But you can't win em all... pretty good balance side to side. It certainly looks fat, but it's short. It fits easily inside of a pair of studs 16" OC.

I'll shoot a video of it in a bit bump firing.

As promised. I apologize for the potato quality video. My phone is a bit of an antique.

My "smart" phone requires flash to watch that. Technology sucks.

Maybe slightly faster, but I can't give you leaps and bounds.

Wow...based on your video I would agree...Your paslode works much better than mine. Though it should since you're the king of paslodes

My paslode (which I think is an IMCT) has given me no end of grief for the last couple of years. Between blank fires, double fires, straight up not firing, I got frustrated with it. It's been in for service twice, and 'theres nothing wrong with it'. Not a fuel issue either, always fresh cartridges...though I did start to notice that more retailers around have old expired fuel. I have almost accidentally bought it on a couple of occasions.

I do a lot of work far away from power building boardwalks. The paslode was certainly a great alternative to dragging in a generator/compressor, but now that I have the dewalt, I'm certainly looking forward to not dealing with my paslode.
