Paslode’s battery-and-butane technology lets you truly “cut the cord” on framing nailers. Jason writes: “It means that I’m able to build furniture all over my house without having to drag an air compressor and hoses around with me! Plus, the idea that the it drives nails via the same method that powers my car — by a fuel-explosion-driven cylinder — is awesome.”
The Paslode’s 30-degree framing nailer’s battery ignites a small charge of butane — stored in a replaceable “fuel cell” canister — to drive up to 1,200 nails on a single ‘cell and over 4,000 nails per battery charge. It can fire two to three nails per second, and accepts 2″ to 3-1/4″ nails in 48-nail-strips.
Street pricing starts around $340 for the nailer and fuel cells run about $13 each, yielding a disposables cost of around one cent per nail. Paslode also offers 16-gauge finish nailers (angled and straight) and 18-gauge brad and standard crown staplers in the same line.
