Framing with Ease: Paslode CF325 902200 Cordless Framing Nailer

Framing with Ease: Paslode CF325 902200 Cordless Framing Nailer

Dec 28, 2011

I bought both of Paslode’s trim guns several years ago so this framing gun sounded like a great idea to me. Paslode redesigned the framing nailer in mid 2009 to address the slow firing issues with the previous cordless framing gun they offered. This gun has proven to be a real stallion for a framer that values his time. You will never want to load up compressors and run hoses again after this cordless framing nail gun gets in your hands.

The Paslode CF325 framing gun excels at letting a framer get in those tight spots and makes floating over ceiling rafters a dream. Anyone who has ever had to work in a tight corner with a hose attached to their framing nail gun knows what a life saver this nail gun is. It is designed to easily get in to tight spots and makes toeing in studs and beams a cinch.  Imagine no longer having to drag out a large heavy compressor, long hoses and then set it up and wait for it to pressurize. No more pulling hoses through studs and rafters as you work and then having to untangle it all every 30 minutes. No more running out of gasoline when that heavy compressor putters out on that remote job site.

If you remodel this Paslode cordless framing gun is a dream. You don’t have rearrange a Paslode CF325 Framing Nail Gun Reviewroom to get at every spot like you would with a long hose attached to your old nail gun.  You don’t have to worry about making a mess or knocking over a client’s tables with the hoses while you move through a room adding a wall. You don’t even have to worry about tripping a breaker from the compressor’s load.

The Paslode  Framing Nailer uses  22 degree angled framing nails  up to 3 1/4″ long.  It can nail into LVL beams and joist with ease. It has a smaller magazine capacity holding 1 strip of nails, 48 in all.
Paslode’s cordless framing  nail gun fuel cell is what powers this beast. These canisters can drive upwards of 1300 nail shots. The battery will last for up to 4000 nail shots. Cleaning the unit is only needed every 50,000 nail shots. No need to oil these nailers either.

The price for this framing nailer is pretty reasonable. Its is only about $100  more than a corded framing gun. But, the time savings on the job make it worth the extra money. Using it  can easily save 20- 30 minutes off setting up for a job everyday.  The unit will pay for itself in a matter of weeks.
