Find The Right Pallet Nailer: The Pallet Nailer Buyer's Guide

You've probably heard of framing nailers, but what about their not-so-distant cousin, the pallet nailer? Pallet nailers look and function very similar to a framing nailer - the only difference being these special nail guns are designed for industrial applications, such as building and repairing pallets and crates. Typically available for use with coil nails, there are also a few strip nailers available for pallets and crating - such as the Bostitch BRT130, the MAX HS130 or the Fasco F91A RHN20-130.
Pallets & Crates
The biggest difference that separates a pallet nailer from other types of nail guns is in its intended use - for industrial and manufacturing applications. Whereas a framing nailer is typically found on a construction site, pallet and crating nailers are typically found in warehouses or high-production facilities. These heavy-duty tools are built for high-volume use - built extra tough to handle the rigors of frequent, repetitive use for several hours at a time. Some pallet nailer variations, such as the MAX CN70PAL (available for special order only, on NGD), are built with specific applications in mind. The CN70PAL is an identical tool to the popular MAX CN70, the only difference being the CN70PAL is missing its magazine. Eliminating the magazine on this tool allows it to become extra versatile - for automated manufacturing use.
Our top picks for pallet nailing applications, check out a variety of different models available from Everwin, MAX and Senco. With several models available, depending on the fastener size desired, each of these manufacturers has something special to offer its end user.

      Chriss, a customer service team member will contact you directly at the email you've provided. I would like to recommend our Everwin PN70PAL to consider as well, as it essentially has the same build-quality as the CN70PAL, but at a better price. We do also offer skid deals on most of our fasteners, so it's possible you could get the tool at no charge if you are interested in a skid of fasteners. Thank you for contacting Nail Gun Depot!

    I am looking for a nailer to nail 1x6 on to 3x3 hardwood stringers with a strapping groove. Nails should be 3 inchs long. It would be an industrial application so self feeding magazine is required. Lowlights of gun is an issue but needs to be rugged as it will be used at multiple stations.

    Please send quote on gun and Fasteners we would require about 15000 nails weekly.

    Good nail gun for repairing pallets

  • Steve Plach October 22, 2019 at 8:46 AM

    Looking to purchase a nail gun to do repairs ( Replacing a board or two on a pallet) we have compressed air @115 psi. This will be an occasional repair, looking for a recommendation on what to purchase. I believe a 2 inch nail would be average.

      Everwin makes great coil nailers. We offer a variety of them on Nail Gun Depot, found here.

      You may want to look at their coil framing nailers too, depending on nail size you're looking to use.

      If you prefer name-brand, we do offer a selection of MAX USA coil pallet nailers too. These are comparable in quality to the Everwin, but at a slightly higher cost of entry.
