Paslode® Introduces First Pneumatic Nailer Designed Specifically for Remodelers

New Compact Framing Nailer Offers Lightest Design Ever for Unmatched Maneuverability

VERNON HILLS, IL – March 1, 2015 – Paslode, the driving force in fastening systems for the past 50 years, is pleased to introduce the industry’s lightest, most compact pneumatic framing nailer. Weighing in at just 5.9 pounds and measuring 12 inches in length – 30 percent lighter and 40 percent shorter than other models on the market today, Paslode’s new Compact Framing Nailer allows professional remodelers to easily reach all the tight spaces they encounter on a daily basis and reduces fatigue when working in overhead areas.

Developed specifically with professional remodelers’ needs in mind, the pneumatic Compact Framing Nailer offers a light, maneuverable solution while delivering powerful, jam-free and reliable operation. Featuring 90-120 psi operating pressure and aggressive nose teeth for precise toe-nailing, the nailer provides a high-performance solution and high-quality results.

Additionally, the Compact Framing Nailer features a padded collar to help protect finished floors and surfaces on the jobsite and is equipped with an innovative reversible rafter/belt hook. Adding to the convenience and control, the pneumatic nailer is designed for tool-free adjustable depth-of-drive.

The Compact Framing Nailer, which drives 30-degree framing nails, also holds up to 45 fasteners and offers two-step loading for simplicity and efficiency. When used with Paslode’s industry-leading fasteners, the Compact Framing Nailer delivers optimal results while improving productivity. Furthermore, the nailer allows for operation in single nail or bump mode, offering a flexible solution for a wide range of remodeling jobs.

“When we first set out to develop the first-ever pneumatic framing nailer for remodelers, we went straight to the source and asked industry professionals to weigh in on what would make their jobs easier,” said Warren Corrado, Product Manager. “They asked us to make a pneumatic framing nailer that is light and maneuverable, but also to make it tough. And that’s exactly what we did with the Compact Framing Nailer.”

To celebrate the launch of the Compact Framing Nailer, Paslode is introducing the “Pick It Up Challenge” sweepstakes. From May 1 to October 31, remodelers can enter to win a Ford F-150 pickup truck by going to a participating retailer to experience first-hand the nailer’s lightweight design. Upon using a Smartphone to scan a bar code on a tag hanging around the nailer, participants will arrive on a landing page for entry submittal. The drawing for the winner will be held December 1, 2015.
