  • Bostitch Charges Up For Cordless Nailing

    Bostitch has something new, and they’re pretty “amped” up about it. For a brand that’s had its share of gas-powered cordless construction tools over the years, Stanley Bostitch has finally adopted the latest – and greatest – in cordless nailing technology. For the first time, they’ve brought lithium ion power to their nail guns. Here’s your first look at their new lineup:

    •    Bostitch BCF28WWM1 20V MAX 28 Degree Wire Weld Framing Nailer Kit

    The Bostitch BCF28WWM1 is one of two new framing nailer kits from the brand. Powered by a 20V high-capacity 4.0Ah Li-Ion battery, and delivering enough power to drive 28 degree wire strip framing nails, this cordless framing gun is ready for everything. Its battery, in tandem with a brushless motor, allows the BCF28WWM1 to run cooler; improving efficiency and reducing wear and tear. Tool-free depth adjustment allows for precision nail placement, making this Bostitch nailer perfect for framing, sheathing, fencing, deck building and other similar applications. Easily adjust between bump and sequential firing modes with the BCF28WWM1; and rest assured that jam clearance is a breeze. The BCF28WWM1 kit comes complete with a BCF204 Li-Ion battery, BCB115 charger and kit storage bag. As with the other cordless nailers below, Bostitch offers a three-year limited warranty on the tool.

    •    Bostitch BCF30PTM1 20V MAX 30 Degree Paper Tape Framing Nailer Kit

    The second of two new cordless framing nailer kits, the Bostitch BCF30PTM1 remains nearly identical to its counterpart, the BCF28WWM1. Besides accepting paper collated framing nails, the versatile BCF30PTM1 too comes with a BCF204 4.0Ah high-capacity Li-Ion battery, BCB115 charger and kit bag. Feeling déjà vu? Compare this Bostitch paper strip framing nailer to the Dewalt DCN692M1 cordless framing nailer kit.

    •    Bostitch BCN680D1 20V MAX 18 Gauge Brad Nailer Kit

    In addition to the framing guns, Bostitch’s new line-up also includes several smaller body finish guns, including a brad nailer kit – the BCN680D1. The 2.0Ah Li-Ion battery, included in the kit, powers a brushless motor in the BCN680, driving 18 gauge brad nails from 5/8” to 2-1/8” in length. Easily countersink nails for tasks installing decorative moldings, door and window casing, staircases and shoe molding – among other projects in finish and trim woodworking. The BCN680D1 also has some serious accuracy, thanks to the brad nailer’s micro nose. Meanwhile, to prevent dry-fire and unwanted surface markings, the BCN680D1 features low-nail lockout. Standard features include a tool-free stall release and tool-free jam release, selectable actuation modes, multifunctional LED lights, and an adjustable belt hook. With the kit, you’ll find a BCB203 battery, BCB115 charger and storage bag. Save time and money with this battery-only lithium ion brad nailer, when compared to the recurring expense of gas fuel canisters – not to mention the ramp up time required during use.

    •    Bostitch BCN662D1 20V MAX 16 Gauge Straight Finish Nailer Kit

    Last, but not least, Bostitch plugged two new cordless finish nailers into their lineup. We’ll start with the BCN662D1, their 16 gauge battery-only model. The Bostitch BCN662D1 is identical in every way to its 15 gauge BCN650D1 counterpart, with one exception, the tool runs 16 gauge straight finish nails instead. The BCN662D1 cordless finish nailer kit comes with BCB203 2.0Ah high-capacity Li-Ion battery, BCB115 battery charger and kit bag for storage.

    bcn662d1

    •    Bostitch BCN650D1 20V MAX 15 Gauge Angled Finish Nailer Kit

    Likewise, the BCN650D1 ditches the need for air compressors, air hoses and fuel cells – running exclusively on battery power. Drive 15 gauge “FN” angled finish nails from 1-1/4” to 2-1/2” with ease. A micro nose frees the user’s line of sight, ensuring precision nailing with every drive. Meanwhile, an inline magazine, set at 25 degrees, allows the user to get into tight spaces; all while the BCN650’s brushless motor keeps the tool running smooth. Quickly switching between bump and sequential firing modes is no hassle either. We find this 15 gauge Bostitch cordless finish nailer excels when used for applications including crown molding, baseboards, hardwood flooring, door and window casing, and more. Other standard features of the BCN650D1 include tool-free depth adjustment, a no-mar pad, multifunctional LED lights (indicating battery life, stalls, and work space illumination), and an adjustable belt hook. Along with a three-year limited warranty, this Bostitch finish nailer kit comes with BCB203 2.0Ah Li-Ion battery, BCB115 charger and bag.

    bcn650d1

    Stanley Bostitch is offering most of these kits in limited-quantities during launch. Look for regular availability sometime around Thanksgiving 2017. Pricing varies depending on the model, and can be found on Nail Gun Depot. Just like Dewalt, look for bare, tool-only models to follow shortly after.

    With the introduction of these impressive cordless nailers from Bostitch, it leaves us wondering, which will be the right one for you?

  • Paslode Transitions To Lithium-Ion Cordless Power

    Remember when Paslode first released its industry-changing cordless Impulse nailers? Nailing was never the same.

    Yet again, Paslode is raising the stakes, taking their cordless nailers into the 21st Century with lithium-ion power. Just like before, each Paslode cordless tool still requires a fuel cell to operate; but now offers better range and improved ergonomics. The transition was recently completed, when Paslode released their IM200-Li cordless brad nailer.

    Paslode IM200-Li

    "Why Choose Paslode Cordless? Paslode Cordless offers durable and lightweight solutions to your everyday work. Not only does Paslode Cordless offer more balance and control, but it was made to withstand the tough jobsite conditions. Paslode Cordless Systems were built to keep up with you." ~ Paslode.com

    Paslode IM250S-Li

    Let's take a closer look at the full Paslode Li-Ion cordless lineup:

    When it comes to framing, Paslode's cordless framing nailer has enjoyed one of the longest running success stories in the business. The current generation Paslode CF325XP, which recently replaced the CF325-Li, offers the same benefits as its predecessor, but with 15% increased driving power, low temperature usability (tool works in conditions down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit - when using all-season orange fuel cell), and up to 50% longer run time per battery charge. Eligible for Paslode's 2 Year Service Promise, the CF325XP (905600) is also backed by a standard five-year warranty. This Paslode framing nailer is tried, tested - and now better than ever before.

    Paslode CF325XP

    Paslode doesn't stop with framing. Now boasting a full line of Li-Ion cordless finish and trim nailers, the Paslode brand has come full circle. Choose between a 16 gauge straight IM250S-Li (916000), 16 gauge angled IM250A-Li (902400), and the most recent addition - an 18 gauge brad nailer IM200-Li (918000). All lithium-ion - all ready to work.

    Paslode 916000

    Like the CF325XP, these Paslode Li-Ion cordless finish nailers are lighter weight (easier to carry and use), can be recharged quicker, and hold their charge for a longer range of time. Don't forget, these Paslode cordless finish nailers do still require a small yellow fuel cell to operate.

    Paslode Cordless Nail Gun Depot Promotion

    To celebrate this milestone, for a limited time get a FREE Paslode Yellow Finish Fuel (816007) or Orange Framing Fuel Cell (816008), when purchasing ANY Paslode lithium-ion framing or finish nailer on Nail Gun Depot. Deal starts Friday (7/22/16) and runs while supplies last.

  • What Cordless Nail Gun Should I Buy?

    It's hard to ignore the increasing presence of cordless tools coming to market. Today, let's take a look at those different types of cordless nailers. We'll look at brand, product application, and variation(s) of cordless technology available. Let's start by breaking down the core categories of cordless.

    Senco Cordless Battery

    Framing Nailers & Metal Connecting Nailers

     

    Cordless framing nailers have improved quite a bit since the first Paslode Impulse tool was released in July of 1986 - nearly 30 years ago to the day. Today, Paslode cordless tools have improved in every possible way: lighter body, longer battery life, quicker recharge time and more. The CF325XP (905600) is Paslode's current contender in a long running legacy of cordless framing tools. Powered by lithium-ion battery and orange framing fuel cell, the CF325XP is designed for heavy-duty, everyday use.

    Paslode CF325XP

    While Paslode has dominated this segment of the market for many years, another key player is quickly gaining notoriety for their contractor-grade cordless technology. That's right, we're talking about our friends at Dewalt. Currently on their second generation lithium-ion framing tool, Dewalt's MAX XR battery boasts more power and longevity than ever before. Dewalt has also managed to eliminate the need for a fuel cell, without compromising performance. Dewalt's system is as simple as plug-and-play. With the recent release of their DCN693M1 cordless metal connecting nailer - the first of its kind - we've got a hunch this won't be the last cordless nailer from Dewalt.

    Our Recommendation:

    If you don't mind occasionally replacing a fuel cell, Paslode has led cordless framing sales for decades. For tried and tested quality, Paslode is a sure shot.

    Dewalt DCN693 App

    If you're looking for the latest technology, there's no doubt that Dewalt offers a game changer. The MAX XR battery system eliminates the need for fuel cell, and offers improved driving force and length of time between charging cycles.

     

    Finish & Brad Nailers

     

    Unlike the cordless framing market, you'll see a lot more competition when comparing cordless finish and trim nailers. Two main factors dictate the widespread growth for this segment of the industry - market share and tool design. Generally speaking, the market for finish and trim nailers is infinite. Between contractors, weekend warriors, and woodworking hobbyists, there is always a demand for finish nailers. Paired with the fact they require much less energy to drive small finish or brad nails into place, you have a recipe for success.

    Grex Cordless Comparison Side-By-Side

    Just like the framing nailers above, most cordless finish nailers come in the same two variations, either with fuel cell and battery, or powered by battery only. Grex recently launched the GC1850 cordless brad nailer, which is powered by fuel cell and AAA battery power only! Don't worry about constantly replacing those AAA's in the Grex either, this cordless brad nailer is rated to run up to 50,000 shots per battery cycle.

    Looking at fuel cell finish nailers, Paslode once again leads the industry with its lineup of lithium-ion tools. Introduced to replace the aging line of Paslode Impulse nailers, these new lithium-ion powered tools are lean and efficient. The most recent addition to Paslode is their all-new 18 gauge brad nailer, the IM200Li (918000). Featuring several benefits over its predecessor, the Paslode IM200-F18 (901000), the IM200Li lithium-ion brad nailer offers a lightweight design, long-range battery life, battery standby position to conserve charge, tool free depth adjustment, reversible belt hook, and no mar tip - among other benefits.

    Dewalt DCN660D1 App

    Moving away from the fuel cell, Senco and Dewalt continue to battle for control of the battery-only market. A long-time leader in innovation, the Senco Fusion is available in four cordless variations ranging from 15 gauge finish nailer down to 18 gauge brad nailer. The Senco Fusion cordless system continues to receive praise for its innovative features and proprietary design. However, Dewalt recently answered the demand for better, more powerful batteries when they introduced the 20V MAX lithium-ion battery pack. Built to compete with Senco's Fusion, we've seen a growing demand for Dewalt's new product(s) - which includes their DCN660D1 16 gauge cordless finish nailer.

    The Verdict:

    Only time will tell the ultimate winners in this extremely competitive segment of cordless tools. As new technology continues to emerge, we expect to see several new products come to market in the next calendar year. We also predict a full transition to lithium-ion batteries, for those brands still offering NiCad models or similar.

    Senco Fusion F-15

    And, if you're a diehard air tool enthusiast, there's good news for you too. Despite advancements in cordless technology, we don't foresee pneumatic tools fading into the abyss any time soon. With a network of contractors and tradesmen that swear by pneumatic nailers and staplers, we have a hunch these tools will also benefit from enhanced technology and performance.

    So, would you consider cordless?
