Love this nail gun, easy to use, great power but you will need to purchase the trim fuel as it is not included in the box and will not operate without it. I did not enjoy the second drive to Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AJ Light weight and extremely powerful!
Took back my ridgid hyperdrive finish nailer do to the lack of depth it drove the nails in trim. The paslode I like very much not only is it lighter.it's also smaller and more powerful than the ridgid. The tiny 7.2v battery capabable of driving 6000 nails on one charge. It comes with its hard caring case allows you to organize your fuel cells and charger. The ridgid only had a zip up bag with no extra room for a charger. I highly recommend if you ready to leave the compressor and hose at home. And get jobs done faster with less prep and clean up time of your tools. the low cost of the fuel cells are worth the trade off for the bulky hose and compressor and extension cord. Can't wait to have an excuse to buy the framing nailer paslode makes

I used this for a full day hanging 1 inch thick common boards. Using 2 inch nails, this nailer never had an issue. I would remark that the fuel cell gas had an odor to it, but I was in a small room so that may have made it worse. Also, I wish the fuel cells were sold individually, as I didn't even finish the first one of a two-pack. Otherwise, simple to use for a first timer.

If there is a better designed and performing tool .... I don't own it just yet. Seriously, this tool performs impeccably, and my only regret is not having obtained one sooner. However, I should add that I do take exceptional care of my tools, and clean/maintain them as needed. I'm sure that if I did not maintain the tool as required, abused it, flung it into the back of a truck with no case, and used out of date fuel cells, I could probably replicate some of the complaints I've seen posted elsewhere. I did a lot of research online looking for a good finish nailer. After going through about 500 nails with this one I can say that the nailer lives up to it's hype. No more air hoses for me! My next purchase will be the Paslode cordless framing nailer. Thanks Paslode for a great tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuckyGirl This is the tool I've been waiting for! Excellent quality.
I have another nailer, but because it needs an air compressor I never use it, especially when I have trim work to be in my basement. The inconvenience of having to drag my air compressor there makes me not want to use it at all. Now this cordless nailer is awesome, so easy to use and it doesn’t jam. The instructions are super easy to follow and the battery charges up fairly quickly. This nailer comes in a cool hard case with a handle, so it’s easy to carry around. I just finished installing trim on 4 new doors and using this nailer made the job go by faster and I had fun doing it. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for convenience and quality. Paslode stands behind their products. For this nailer, they offer free 2 year service promise “No questions asked”. So if it stops working for any reason, they will fix it, no hassles, no questions, no cost!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 All about convience and speed
This is my first non-pneumatic Nailer. The Paslode 16-gauge Finish Nailer is really about convenience and speed. I noticed how fast the work goes once its setup and you are into the groove. Had no problems with misfires or pop up nail heads. Adjusting the nail depth with the control wheel on the side of the gun is faster than using tools. No air compressor and hose is a big plus. Its light weight about five pounds and comfortable especially when holding overhead. The side hook for my tool belt is a nice place to rest it during use. I like the clear sight view of the spot to nail and the angled slope and size of the tool for getting into tighter spots. The cost of angled nails and fuel for some is an issue, but the convenience of not needing an air compressor for small and big jobs is worth it in my opinion with no setup time alone. To be fair I don't use a Nailer every day so I go for convenience over cost. Its ideal for smaller jobs and a pleasure to use on bigger ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Great Mobility, great warranty, cost effective
I put it to task the day I got it. Floor trims, crown molding or corner crown blocks, it performed above expectations. It’s my first cordless nailer. I do own a few pneumatic based and most of them perform much similar as this one.
But what makes this nailer my top preference is;
(1) Mobility without baggage - At job sites, I had to have my own compressor; at times I couldn’t have electrical access so I had to have a generator + gasoline to run the compressor. Now all of that is replaced by this single tool. I can’t even explain this convenience.
(2) Cost effectiveness –Less time spent is less overhead cost for me. My prep time has gone down; I do not have to wait on the compressor to fill or catch up with the speed I am going.
(3) Great 2 years warranty with “Bring it back – no questions asked".
Construction is solid, feels good in hands and performs flawlessly. I have used it with expired fuel cells and did not see any performance degrade. In fact, I found out that cell was expired after I completely consumed it.
I appreciate the rotatable belt clip since a lot of my work is on the ladder. I have not experienced any trouble inserting/removing the battery from its slot. Fuel cell cost is fraction of the pennies compared to the time I am saving. The carrying/storage case is sturdy and padlock capable which is very handy at job site.
Talking about cleaning, manufacturer included a step-by-step card with colored camera shots showing each step. That’s very convenient especially for occasional users.
To date, I am yet to find a problem with this tool. I am very excited to own it and highly recommend to Pros and DIYers.
