Product Description

Amazon.com

Ideal for light framing and remodeling projects and high-volume commercial use, the Paslode Cordless IMCT Framing Nailer is compatible with 2.0-inch to 3.25-inch full- and clipped-head nails. This handy, high-performance tool lets you avoid the hassle of compressor noise and hoses. Also, it’s easy to handle and hold, offers consistent performance, and supplies the right amount of power for a range of uses.


The highly visible, easy-to-access load magazine makes reloading quick and simple. View larger.

Batteries charge in under two hours for convenient, cord-free power. View larger.

Each red fuel cartridge drives up to 1200 nails (fuel cell not included). View larger.
Lightweight, Hose-Free Operation Minimizes Arm Fatigue
Measuring 12.0 inches long and weighing just 7.3 pounds, the IMCT Framing Nailer is comfortable to handle and hold. Its 'sure grip' and well-balanced design combine with a soft trigger to reduce arm fatigue. And because you won’t have to drag a hose with you as you work, you’ll be able to drive nails better and longer, without undue stress on your arms, hands, and wrists.

Compact, Heavy-Duty Design Works Anywhere and Everywhere
Compact enough to work in tight, hard-to-reach areas, the IMCT Framing Nailer packs a powerful punch with heavy-duty construction that can handle tough job conditions. It shoots up to 1,200 nails on a single fuel cell and up to 4,000 nails on a full battery charge, providing a cycle rate of two to three nails per second. And because it offers tool-free depth-of-drive adjustment--no wrenches required!--you can get more done in less time.

Internal Combustion Linear Motor for Robust Performance
Unlike other power fastening tools, the IMCT Framing Nailer is powered by an internal combustion linear motor. In simpler terms, the nailer owes its robust performance to its motor, which is similar to an automobile's motor. Additionally, the tool ignites a fuel and air mixture to produce the energy needed to drive the motor, and ultimately, the fastener.

Patented Battery System for Consistency and Reliability
Another unique feature of this nailer is that it uses a patented system that requires both a fuel cell and a rechargeable battery (the fuel cell is not included). This translates to optimum consistency and reliability, whether you’re building a deck, working with wall sheathing, or repairing a roof. It also means the IMCT Framing Nailer is entirely self-contained. The tool carries its own fuel supply and battery--along with a supply of fasteners--making it easy to bring with you from site to site.

Lockout Feature to Prevent Blank Firing and Wood Damage
The IMCT Framing Nailer boasts a lockout feature to prevent needless blank cycling, which can waste fuel and damage both the wood you’re working with and the nailer's components. This feature works by ensuring that five nails will be left in the magazine when the follower reaches the lockout area. Additionally, the tool will not operate when its nail supply has less than six nails.

High-Visibility Magazine and Belt Hanger for Convenience
The IMCT Framing Nailer is designed to be exceptionally user friendly, with features that help keep your job running smoothly. First, the load magazine is highly visible, so it helps prevent you from running out of nails in the middle of a project. There’s also a convenient dual-position belt hanger, so you don't have to lay the nailer on the ground or on top of a ladder, nor do you have to wedge it among rafters. And if you can't remember where you last placed your nailer, its bright orange color makes it easy to spot.

About the Battery Charging System
The IMCT Framing Nailer comes with a rechargeable battery and its own charging system. This charging system is the only one that will work with Paslode batteries (both round and oval). When your tool arrives, you’ll first need to charge the battery. Batteries will generally take five minutes to two hours to recharge, depending on the amount of discharge within the battery.

Dimensions and Warranty Information
The IMCT Framing Nailer has a height of 14.5 inches and weighs 7.3 pounds. It comes with a one-year limited warranty on all parts, a five-year warranty on all molded nylon parts, and a 90-day limited warranty on the bumper, driver blades, O-rings, and seal rings.

What's in the Box
Nailer, 6.0-volt battery, charger, belt hanger, rugged plastic carrying case, safety goggles, manual, and 5/32-inch hex wrench.




The IMCT Framing Nailer is designed to for easy handling and reliable, professional performance.

When me and my brother in law decided to build my house, I started looking for something to help us out. Neither one of us ever owned any kind of nail gun or phneumatic tools. I asked around and read the reviews on your web site. I went to LOWE's and Home Depot to get a closer look at all of the various guns. I decided to try the Paslode Impulse, so I bought one for each of us. I saved... on both by getting them from Amazon. These things are great. I even dropped one twice, once about 6' on a sidewalk. Never missed a beat. They are practically maintence free. Even though they didn't need it I cleaned them once just to make me feel good. The breakdown and cleaning was a snap. They sure made the job go faster and saved a lot of wear and tear on our arms. Not having air hoses laying all around was a big plus. I strongly recommend the Paslode Impulse. I even used the generic nails with no problems.

We have never found any tool as helpful as this cordless nail gun. It cut down our project times by more than half and saved my hands and wrists from pain (carpel tunel sufferer). Purchasing this was far more economical than purchasing a nail gun, compressor etc, where we would not use the compressor with anything else except for the nail gun. It doesn't take up a lot of storage room and its great not having to worry about triping over hoses or cords. We haven't had any problems with it and haven't had any jams in the 2 cases of nails we've gone through so far. This is a real timesaver!

I work with a company who employs over 100 union carpenters. We have used Paslode Air tools for the last 8 years with great reliability. The impulse framing nailer, however, certainly had its share of problems until Paslode came out with the improvements in last year,s model. The over-heating and freezing is no longer a problem. Paslode has made this product good enough for us to rely on everyday under extreme conditions. Keep in mind: this tool does require routine maintenance which takes very little time, but it must be done for the gun to function properly and last. Bottom line, if you are interested in an nail gun with convenience and reliability this really is the one. (I do not sell these things...they make us money.)

We've used Paslode Impulse Nailers for our framing crew since they first came out. We still have some of our first guns, from nearly ten years ago. Our crew is not easy on tools, so the tools have not been babied. The newer guns are not as good and the service sometimes leaves a lot to be desired. When I have complained to the reps I'm told that the tool is not for everyday framing, just for occasional use where pnuematic tools are inconvienent. This is what the retailers don't tell you when you buy them. They are not supposed to be a primary tool -- but that's how we use them anyway. We've learned to implement most repairs and cleaning on the job. It would be nice if Paslode would make the guns so they SHOULD be the primary tool.

I've had my Paslode for about a year and a half now. I have to say,"I'm pleased." It's great for small jobs. If I know I'just building a few walls or something else that's only going to take a few minutes I go straight for the orange case and get this baby out. Why ? It has plenty of power to sink nails in new lumber. You might have a little trouble every now and then in old dry studs but you can always finish beating the nail in with a hammer. It doesn't happen very often.The time saved in not lugging a compressor and hoses around is priceless.They designed it so that it won't dry fire when you are out of nails which I wish everyone did. One thing I don't like is you can't bump fire the thing. You have to have the nose safety engaged and then pull the trigger. Then for safety you have to let off the trigger and place the nose again and pull the trigger. At least it's impossible to double fire. Another thing is that it doesn't hold much more than one clip of nails so you have to reload often. For these reasons I don't use it for anything that's going to take more than an hour. If I have a lot of nailing to do I want to be able to hold the trigger and bump fire the nails. It's so much faster. It's not as safe but much more productive. For remodels and pick up work ,this gun is great. For framing a house this is not the right tool. You need a pneumatic nailer and lots of hose. When mine decides to quit or it walks off a job site I will definitely replace it.It's just too handy to be with out.

Working on a residential/commercial framing crew that uses the Paslode Impulse almost exclusively and nearly every day of the year, I can honestly say this tool has held its own. We've owned around 14 or 15 of these guns in the past 4 years so we've had a broad range of experience with them. We have run thousands upon thousands of nails (both smooth shank and ring shank) through each of the guns before having any severe difficulties. I will say if you frame every day with them like we do, they do wear out, just like any nail gun (or tool for that matter).

We've worked in the nastiest conditions imaginable with them. 100 degree heat in the summer, and 20 below zero (-40 wind chill) in the winter (that's Minnesota for you) and they still work. Snow, rain, ice, mud, our guns have seen it all.

You can go quite a while without cleaning them, but not forever. Because they run off a combustion chamber (the gas is ignited) and not air pressure, they get carbon buildup. But unless you're working in Iraq in the sand, you don't need to clean them every two days.

The guns are durable! In terms of dropping or abuse, they are much more durable than the Pneumatic nailers because they are plastic. We've dropped them off of roofs two and three stories up, shook the dirt out of them and gone back to nailing. We've accidentally dropped the pneumatic guns 3 feet onto the concrete and broken the cast housing. In this case, plastic is better.

But having built dozens of houses with them, I can honestly say they are a tool worth the money. So for all you weekend warriors, with a sizeable project to accomplish, the Paslode Impulse will hold its own.

Look at it this way.
