Paslode CF-325 Cordless Framing Nailer
Right now, we're in the process of reviewing the Paslode PowerFramer, so while you're waiting for that, we thought we'd tell you about another new Paslode tool that also looks pretty interesting. It's the CF-325 Cordless Framing Nailer and according to Paslode, it's a big improvement on their popular line of cordless framers.
The CF-325 has an easy-to-use fuel system (just drop the cartridge in and you're ready to go), and easy access to the innards for when you have to clean the tool. Paslode guarantees that each fuel cartridge can shoot off around 1200 nails.
Paslode is also making refueling easier with the sale of their new Nail + Fuel Combo Packs. This is simply a box of compatible nails and a fuel cartridge sold together. They will be available either with 1000 nails and one cartridge or 3000 nails and 3 cartridges.
The new framer also offers fast firing, an ergonomic grip, and a vicious looking toenailing claw.
Paslode, as a company, seems to have a good ear to the ground as far as customer feedback goes and it sounds like the improvements in their cordless framing nailer are the results of listening to all the comments and criticisms of their previous models. That said, It's likely that this will be a very nice tool.
The CF-325 is just available this month (March '08) and will retail for around $400. It comes with a carrying case, a battery charger, degreaser, oil, and safety glasses. Although it isn't listed yet, we're sure that it will be available at Amazon.com and Tool King.
