Paslode Seals


So i finally blew a seal in my paslode nailer. I own the f350. Ive literally used it maybe 40 hours sence i bought it last summer

This weekend i was useing it for sheating. Put some oil in, grab the hose and BAM blown seal right by the air input

Its not the seal im pi$$ed about but i dont really use the gun that much to make a seal go. Always oil before use and a few drops hear and there when i use it heavy.

Any one else have this problem with seals goin quick??

Around 100psi. Took it all apart today and it looks like the seal was crushed from the factory. Looks like paslode is getting a calk tomorrow

Re: Paslode Seals


Infrequent use will also dry out the o-rings.

I don't think that'll work. Better just get a new seal.
