Paslode 501000 Review
The Paslode 501000 F-350S Power Master Plus Pneumatic Framing Nail Gun has been designed for the professional market, where it has been very favorably received. With the ability to deliver over 10% more power per pound than similar power nailers on the market, the Power Master Plus, makes the most difficult jobs quicker and easier, and with reduced recoil and excellent balance operating F350S for long periods is comfortable and convenient.
Having the choice of either, manual or sequential operation and the ability to drive up to 12 nails per second, the Power Master Plus, makes working on larger projects a breeze. The added feature of the barrel shaped nose gives the operator a clean line of sight which is important to ensure a safe and professional finish.
Unlike many other nailers on the market the Paslode 501000 F-350S nailgun, requires the use of a hex wrench to clear jams, which fits neatly on board the nailer. The very handy rafter hook means the nail gun can be hung from a rafter, a joist or ladder which is very useful when you need both hands for another task.
The framing nailer has a safety feature which prevents the last three nails from firing, which can cause jamming or other accidents.
The magazine holds 84 nails in 2 clips of up to 3 ½ inch nails which reduces the need for reloading, which saves on frustration and downtime, and with the rule set on the magazine, it makes life far easier judging the distance between nails for example, which for some jobs can be very important and the built in rule makes it quick and easy to produce the accuracy required.
The tool free adjustable exhaust allows the user to have the exhaust blow away from them, and could also be directed to blow debris away from the work area; preventing pieces of debris being trapped behind nails and spoiling the finished look of the project.
The nail gun does require a daily dose of oil to keep it running smoothly, just 3 to 5 drops a day is adequate.
The compact size of the nail gun makes it for ideal for 16 inch studs, joist and rafters as the nailer fits comfortably into these areas which makes it a safer choice for those in the construction industry. The Paslode 501000 F-350S Power Master Plus Pneumatic Framing Nailer is also the first choice for decking and sub framing and with the power to drive through engineered lumber has all the power to pack the punch required.

“I work on a framing crew of a couple guys. We have tried several different brands of nail guns- hitachi, dewalt, and others, but this has been the gun we all agree is the best. Some brands may be slightly lighter, but with the rafter hook, round head capacity and power that this has it’s a winner. We push our tools, and other brands couldn’t take it- my gun has been going 3 1/2 years, and aside from from a few minor repairs it has run well.”

“I have used and owned all kinds of framing nailers. This one is the berries! And Hey! Guess what? Paslode makes full-head nails to shoot from this gun. Surprised? I was. You can not beat this gun for performance, price, or utility.
Just wish I could get paid for saying this.”
