A super nice high quality cordless nailer that exceeds all expectations. The nailer is powered by a lithium ion battery combined with a small fuel cell eliminating the need for both air and electricity. This is convenient and fast with no waiting for the air compressor to pump up and no searching for extension cords to run the compressor.The fuel cell will fire about 1200 nails and the battery will go well beyond that. That's enough capacity for most projects.
The nailer has an adjustment that controls how deep the nail is driven into the wood and it works well I tried a range of different depth settings and the depth followed my setting nicely.
The head also has sharp teeth that grips the wood for toe nailing without slipping and the magazine capacity is large.
This nailer is solid, powerful and built to last with awesome performance. Paslode has set the benchmark with it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by hpiguy Well Built, Powerful, Easy to Load, Fast Depth Adjustment
The Paslode CF325 is a top notch framing nailer. It's powerful, portable and eliminates the need for an air compressor without sacrificing nail driving capability.
When you get your nail gun you'll see Paslode includes a nice bright orange case for the nailer, battery and charger along with a pair of safety glasses. They also have a wonderful quick start guide with full color pictures and diagrams on how to get started. The directions are well done. You will need to buy nails for your project and a fuel cylinder. These are available in Paslode combo packs from Home Depot.
Loading of the nailer is intuitive and can be accomplished in well under a minute. Charge the battery, snap it into place, drop the fuel cylinder into it's compartment and snap the lid down, load your nails and you're ready to get to work. It's that simple.
When you fire a nail you'll hear the exhaust fan running to remove the fumes from the firing chamber. It smells like a cap gun, or a used firework. It is not unpleasant.
Adjusting the depth of nailing on the fly takes seconds using the slider on the front of the nailer.
The gun uses fuel efficiently. The fuel cylinder is good for 1000 nails and the battery can fire up to 6000 nails before it need to be recharged. To store the nail gun simply slide the battery pack back to the off position. You won't have to stop working to constantly charge batteries or replace fuel cylinders.
Cleaning the air filter is simple and the manual says general maintenance is only needed every 50,000 nails and can be accomplished by the owner with full directions and allen wrench included.
Couple the sturdy built nailer with the great case and top it off with Paslode's 2 year no questions asked service guarantee and we have a winner for the regular remodeler or professional home builder.
Convenience is the game with a cordless nailer and Paslode 'nails' it with the CF325. No dragging hundreds of feet of airline up stairs, over roofing or into a basement. Have a quick job and don't want to drag the big compressor with you? This is the gun to get. There is no sacrifice in power compared to a regular air nailer. I highly recommend this to anyone needing to do some heavy nailing and an air compressor isn't available or can't be readily used.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Melissa Very helpful
Extremely easy to use framing nailer, appropriate for exterior work. Works quickly, and powerfully. The battery is key to an easy job, but we would highly recommend an extra battery so that one is always charging, allowing you to continuously work. The gun is light and powerful. Very highly recommend.

I am by no means a pro, but after using the Paslode CF325 Li-ion Cordless Framing Nailer, I can confidently say that Paslode nailed it! This is a very solid piece of equipment. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Once you start prepping and using it, you immediately start feeling that someone really did their job right, and thought about everything. They even added safety glasses to the package, which is a nice surprise.
The case is solid and pro-grade. The gun itself is the right size and weight. I don't have a current project to test it to its limits, but I fired some test nails in 2x4s and it works like magic. I also fired some nails at an angle without trouble. You need to buy nails separately (at least 2" size), and also you need to buy the fuel. It is very easy to use, just insert the battery, insert the fuel, load the nails, and start shooting. You can easily adjust the depth of the nails. I absolutely love how I don't need to run my compressor to use this nailer.
The nailer comes with more than a warranty. Paslode call it the 2-year service promise. They say "no questions asked", which gives me confidence in their support should I ever need it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TXRemodeler There is no better framing nailer on the market.....period
This nailer uses a fuel canister to administer a small amount of combustible fuel into an engine like cylinder that then uses its small lithium ion rechargeable battery to initiate combustion which is used to drive a single nail. The battery recharges very quickly and the fuel canisters last a long time and are not that expensive. This is such an innovative and cleverly designed tool - I love this thing. I'm a little bit spoiled now - no hoses to drag around. As long as you perform some regular basic maintenance on the gun it won't let you down.
