Yes good for small ones. I find I do need 3 different sizes I have the BullDawg that one in the pic, same as the one you listed and the DH1020. I just don't do enough big work for a 60lber.

I have these two. But I'd like a smaller one for small footings.

The 18lber is the DH712VC

and the 12lber the 11264EVS. Maybe the 18lber better? Maybe rent it and see how the guys like it.

That 18lb is a 1-3/4 correct? It's 7lbs lighter than this one.

I'm not sure? here's the page.

The DH1020vc is listed at 25lbs. I've never weighed it.

Yep, the DH712VC is probably a better one to dig with.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Well I pulled the trigger on another Paslode Framer today. Do I need to start a new sobriety date? Two batteries and two fuel cartridges. $279.00 Hell of a deal.

Have they figured out how to not run the battery dead by just leaving it in?

There's a setting to store it without the battery dying.

Yeah, the newer Paslodes with the lithium batteries have 2 detents the latch on the battery hooks into. All the way in is on, and half cocked is storage mode. I have had really bad luck with their framing guns, 2 of them with the same problem. Would fire 2 or 3 nails just fine, then the fan started wigging out and would not fire again unless I took the battery out, then would do the same thing. Returned the first and got a new one figuring it was a fluke but it wasn't. Had em apart several times, cleaned everything per Paslodes instructions and still happened. And no, the gas was not old, battery was charged and it was a comfortable 75 degrees out with a slight offshore breeze. Just break out the air gun now. I'm not too learned about any of the battery only framers so I don't want to invest in a lemon.

That is the cordless model that's the charge cord you see in the pic, but as the handyman version it takes forever to charge that's why I have the pro model

We're they the newer models? Mine has shot flawlessly since I've owned it. It's why I bought another.
