The product works well for its intended use. The only problem I have w/ the product is the it's difficult to determine if you really got what the product is explained to deliver (1200 approx. drives). I purchased a fuel cell that I thought was new which was actually expired. It only drove approx 200 or so nails. I suppose if you start with a brand new box of nails you can tell. Otherwise whose to say that the product delivers to its intended capacity.

Says not for use in cf325, which is my Paslode XP. I does not come out and say in framing guns, they’ve got to kinda hide it on you because no where in or on my XP does it say cf325... until you look into the paperwork. I would however like to know why exactly it would not work with this gun because it works weird literally every other gas gun in their line up. Looks no different than the regular besides costing way less and being read. Probably just a way to make more money. Make sure you check all the little code words/names/numbers.
The HD crew needs to sharpen up on Palode Yellow fuel cell product info. The yellow fuel cells are considerably shorter than the older yellow fuel cells and if you have an older finish nailer gun they won't fit without an adapter. Which they don't carry. You can buy the adapter on Amazon for $20 or make around like I did using 1 inch PVC and cutting it to fit. Additionally make sure you get the proper nails because they don't carry straight nails they only carry the angled finish nails for the newer guns .
This fuel cell runs longer than advertised and has plenty of power. The only reason it doesn't earn five stars is because of the expiration date on the bottom of all their fuel cells. Be sure you check the date before you buy. Today I threw away five cells for my Paslode framing nailer and finish nailer because they were a little over a year past their expiration date and would no longer work.

I don't think I've ever driven 1,200 nails per fuel cell. I don't count but I've only purchased a few boxes of nails and I know I've purchased 6-8 fuel cells. BEFORE you purchase you should check the expiration date printed on the fuel cell. I recently purchased fuel to find a 2009 expiration date. The fuel cell worked fine but perhaps that's why I'm not seeing 1,200 nails per cell. I still like the gun and it still; saves time, effort and it makes money.
Product is great but wish it was more clear on the cartridge as to which nailer (straight or angled nailer) the colored top is to be used for. Store employees confused regarding yellow, red, and now orange tops. Also wish there was some indicator on cartridge as to remaining gas in cartridge.
