Gas-powered nailers are the Mac to the pneumatic nailers’ PC. They’re a bit more expensive, fewer people use them on a daily basis, and they compete in the same general market. One problem gas-powered nailer users (including myself from time to time) complain about is the lack of options in quantity of fuel replacement needs. Duo-Fast is taking action to remedy that with their availability of both single replacement compressed gas cartridges and now 12-piece fuel cell packs.
It’s not a world of change in the gas nailer marketplace, but the Duo-Fast fuel cells are good for 1,100-1,300 shots, depending upon load size and substrate material. Plus they are good to go for other manufactures like Paslode (duh), Bostich, and Hitachi gas rigs.
The cells are available via retail outlets, big box, or basically anywhere you might find gas nailers and gas nailer accessories, except Hank Hill’s place, as he only does propane. Pricing runs about $7.50 for singles or $90 for the bulk contractor pack of 12 cells.
