Easy to use
Being cordless makes the Paslode 902000 really easy to use and very versatile. Having no trailing wires or cords means the nail gun can be used in even the tightest of spaces safely and conveniently, with no cords to get tangled or get in the way, and because the Paslode 902000 – 16 Gauge Straight Finish Nailer doesn’t need a compressor, there is no air hoses to worry about.
The battery can be charged in just 2 hours and provides enough power to shoot 4,000 nails or brads. The fuel cells have sufficient power to drive 1,200 nails, although they are not provided with the original unit, the gas or fuel cells are readily available.
The lightweight but powerful the Paslode 902000 nailer is ideal for use by women too, the light weight construction means the nail gun weighs just 4.9 lbs., so no need for large powerful muscles, and with no compressor to worry about.
The no-mar tips are a great feature as they prevent work being spoiled by the pressure of the nail gun against the wood, particularly soft woods such as pine.
The ‘quick clear nose’ cover allows for instant ‘jam’ clearing, and the 10 nail ‘lock out’ system prevents ‘blank firing’ which is not only frustrating but can also lead to damage to the project.
