I think it was 1986. Just a tank of a nailgun, da DuoFast! It's easily twice the weight of my Hitachi NR83A and ten times slower. But it will shoot a nail into concrete, or at least it used to.

I was digging around in my shop, cleaning it up and found the ol' gal. I don't even know the model number.




It didn't say max pressure in PSI, but in Bars!

Yup, that's an old gal right there.:notworthy We were using the old battle armor Paslodes in 86. They were great for sub-floor installs. No maul required.:laughing: I really like the NR83A though, blasts through PSL and LVL no problem. Timberstrand is another animal.

I remember starting out in 1984. I was working for a company that had 7 man crew, and 3 nailers. All the nailers were the dinosaur paslode tanks. We hand nailed a lot back then. Nowadays, I would probably go home early rather than have to hand nail. I just started using my new paslode framer yesterday. it loads like the senco does. So far, I have not gotten comfortable with it.

Those old stick nailers were top heavy,and could never be hung on a tool belt.

I still have my first Roofing stapler from 84'.
I only held on to it because I have a full box of staples.
I may find a use for it someday.

Even has the old automatic oiler attached.
Who has made this curiosity?

Believe it or not, we still use 2 of that style of duo fast guns. They are heavy but i think they work better than the newer style of duo fast gun. All of our guns are fixed by our fastener salesman( who is a duo fast rep.) at no charge as long as we bu nails from him.

I also had an old duo fast that looked just like that. It was tough as heck and shot with authority! We called it the pterodactyl.
