FAQ’s

Do fuel cells have a shelf life?

Fuel cells have a “Best Used By” date printed on the bottom of the can. A fuel cell will often work beyond that date, but if a tool starts to work intermittently it could be because the fuel cell has expired. An expired fuel cell has lost enough internal pressure to degrade its performance.

We recommend buying only enough fuel to complete the job. Always check the date on the bottom of the can before purchasing or using a fuel cell to ensure it is not past the best used by date.

How do I find a Paslode Authorized Service Center?

To locate your nearest service location, click on “Service and Retail Locator" at the top of the page and then enter your zip code.  Paslode recommends that tools needing service be repaired through your local Factory Authorized Service Network.

How do I know when a fuel cell is empty?

First make certain you are away from any open flames or heating elements. Hold the fuel cell upside down so the black valve is toward the floor. Push the white stem on the black valve several times against a hard surface. Each time you depress the white stem a small “puff” of fuel should be dispensed. If fuel does not come out, the cell is empty.

How do I order a part online?

Genuine Paslode replacement parts, tune up kits, accessories, and repair service can be purchased online at itwconstructionparts.com.

How long does it take to charge a battery?

A new battery will take up to 2 hours to fully charge. A partially discharged battery will take between 5 minutes and 2 hours to fully charge depending on the amount of discharge.

What does it mean when the lights on the charger flash red and green?

It is normal for the lights on the charger to flash red/green for up to 20 minutes. The charger is slowly building the charge in the battery until the battery is able to accept the full output of the charger. This protects the battery and increases the life of the battery. If the lights continue to flash red/green after 20 minutes but go to a steady green when the battery is removed, it is likely there is a problem with the battery.
