Paslode Introduces Improved 16 Ga Straight Cordless Li-ion Finish Nailing System

Upgrade to Li-ion Technology for Unparalleled Power and Precision

VERNON HILLS, IL – July 1, 2015 – In an effort to continue offering top-quality tools for professional remodelers, Paslode upgraded its 16 Ga Straight Cordless Finish Nailing System to run on a 7.4-volt Li-ion battery platform, replacing the NiCd version. Available exclusively at Lowe’s in May 2015, the new Li-ion Cordless Finish Nailer allows for unparalleled power and precision, so remodeling jobs are finished right the first time.

Upgrading to the 7.4-volt Li-ion battery drastically improves productivity by driving up to 6,000 nails per charge, which enables the nailer to last days without needing a recharge. Also adding to the tool’s productivity, the Li-ion batteries have a 50 percent longer run time compared to NiCd batteries and can reach an 80 percent charge in only 30 minutes. Furthermore, the nailer’s battery stand-by position conserves power to prevent any drain on the battery when it’s not in use.

In addition to being equipped with extended battery life, the 16 Ga Straight Cordless Finish Nailer features a belt hook that enables remodelers to free both hands. The nailer also includes an easy to adjust depth-of-drive thumb wheel that can be used with gloves on for seamless maneuverability. At just 4.6 pounds, the Cordless Finish Nailer is lighter than most competitive power nailers, offering comfort and control when doing overhead work on door and window casings.

Additional features of the 16 Ga Straight Cordless Li-ion Finish Nailer include a dry fire lock-out to ensure nail placement, a secure no-mar tip to protect wood surfaces when nailing, and the Paslode Universal Trim Fuel to deliver enough fuel to consistently and precisely drive top-quality results.

“Paslode’s new and improved 16 Ga Straight Cordless Li-ion Finish Nailer offers remodelers increased efficiency and reliability to add value to every job at hand,” said John Sara, Product Manager. “With the arrival of this tool, all of Paslode’s Cordless Nailing Systems will be upgraded with the 7.4-volt Li-ion technology, allowing our customers to share batteries and chargers between Paslode’s Li-ion Finish and Li-ion Framer Nailers and enhance their reputation for expertise and craftsmanship.”

Furthermore, both Paslode’s Li-ion Finish (IM250ALi) and Li-ion Framing (CF325Li) Nailing Systems are backed by Paslode’s no cost, no hassle 2 Year Service Promise that guarantees free service and repair of a broken tool under any circumstance, no questions asked. If a broken nailer is beyond repair and cannot be fixed, Paslode will replace it and issue another 2 Year Service Promise.
