Porter Cable FC350A Nailer Review

While a little heavier then other models, the 14 pound FC350A nailer is built for a long life of abuse on the job site. Taking advantage of compressed air the nailer shoots 30 to 34 degree clipped head framing nails. The nailer accepts lengths from 2 inches to 3.5 inches, of .113 to .131 gauge nails. This nail gun also features a tool free design to conveniently adjust the depth of the nail.

The compact body design features a great balance, style, and aids in working in tight confinements. The powerful pneumatic powered nail gun is backed by consistent power on every shot due to the internal piston catch design. There’s plenty of power to tackle fences, framing, engineered wood, and just about anything else you can think of.

The selectable trigger allows the user to fire in either bump mode or single fire mode with out removing the trigger assembly on other nailguns. The Porter Cable FC350A nail gun also has a incorporated exhaust vent that easily adjusted to steer exhaust gases where you want them. Amongst its other features, the Port Cable FC350A nailer also prevents dry fires, thereby extended the blade life of the tool. Also included is an optional non-marring tip to keep your projects looking professional.

Final comments about the Porter Cable FC350A nailer

The features, power, and price point of this nail gun impressed us. However, the lack of warranty did concern us. After a good thrashing the nailer still performs like the day we took it out of the box. The Porter Cable FC350A framing nailer is a strong competitor in a very cluttered market. The price definitely keeps the nail gun as an enticing option amongst professionals and do it yourselfers.
