Bostitch F21PL Review
The pneumatic powered Bostitch F21PL, delivers a powerful 1,050 in./lb, resulting in the best power to weight ratio amongst its competitors. This is due to the unique construction material of the nailgun, magnesium. Be advised, pneumatic means you will need a fairly larger air compressor to power this tool. At 90-120 psi the F21PL effortlessly drives nails as long as 3-1/2” into any of your projects.
The Bostitch F21PL has the ability to use round-headed nails. This is important, as building codes in some states do not allow clipped headed nails. Round head nails offer more structural integrity. Also unique about this nail gun is its ability to use Hurriquake nails. Something a lot of other nailguns on the market cannot use.
