THE PASLODE IS A GOOD GUN IF YOU USE THEIR NAILS. THEY ARE HARDENED SO THEY WILL PENETRATE IF YOU USE IT RIGHT. THE TIP MOVES TO ENGAGE THE MATERIAL YOU ARE PENETRATING. THE OTHER REVIEW TALKS ABOUT HOW DANGEROUS IT IS BUT WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT. THE KEY IS POSITIVE PLACEMENT AND NOT INDECISIVE PLACEMENT. ONE LAST THING IS TO MAKE SURE YOUR COMPRESSOR RATES OVER 105 POUNDS PRESSURE.

I've had this gun for 2 years and it has NEVER jammed or misdriven a nail. Stick the tip in the hanger hole and pull the trigger, its as fast as a framer. FYI this gun is heavier than the Hitachi.

ETA: this gun has developed a leak after 4 years of light use. Not terrible, but not 5 stars.

Verified Purchase
Paslode is good stuff, and positive placement is much easier than the other options. This was bought for a framing job with hurricane-proofing on a 6,000 sq ft building.

If you got this far, you probably know what you're looking at, so just buy it or don't.

Typical Paslode construction meant for the professional and will take a beating. Burly construction does make the nailer a bit heavier than your Bostitch, but your forearms can use a workout anyway, and it is built to last. Huge timesaver for joist hangers, or any other metal connector really. Works great, never a ricochet if used correctly-get familiar with it, don't go too fast, and as the other reviewer said make sure you put a little elbow grease in your placement. It definitely drives the nail where you place the head, so as long as you are in a hole and hold the nailer "decisively" you'll be fine. Magazine holds two full strips of nails. Very easy to reload. For anyone not familiar, you must use specific teco strips for this nailer meant for positive placement nailers. Definitely recommend the Paslode brand PPMC nails, they seem to work the best but plan ahead because they can be hard to find. Don't try using regular framing strips, they won't work.

I work construction for a living and switched over to this gun because our old one finally gave out.

At first it was a little weird switching to this gun, after using so many with the positive nail placement design. But I got used to it quickly and actually like this a little better now. It seemed with this design, and not being able to see where the nail is going in at, there would be more chance for a ricochet. Yet, I have had no problems with any nails come shooting at my face. The nails seem to stay in the track better too, my guess would be because it only shoots the 1 1/2 inch teco's, so there is less play in the track for the nails to move around.

The only real problem I have had with it not sinking nails, is when the nails get shot into a knot, but that is understandable of almost any gun.

To sum it up I would say:

Pro's
Gun is quieter than the last couple we have used.
Nails stay in place.
Angle of air hose fitting makes it really easy to put air hose on and off.
The gun has less recoil than others, but is still as powerful

Con's
Didn't come with a built in hook
Have to hold gun with finger tips with heavy winter gloves.

But hey, I've only owned one for about 8 years. Its not something that comes out of the trailer on a daily basis but when you get into a pile of Simpson hardware it beats the heck out of hand driving for hours on end. The only places it doesn't fit are tight, and thats what palm nailers are for. As to the finicky comment, I guess I've never thought that and don't agree with it now. I think that individual must just not have understood how the gun works. If you place the tip in the hole in the hardware and squeeze the trigger, thats where the nail is going.
