New Paslode Framing Fuel
Free from an air hose, Paslode’s cordless framing nailers are fast to deploy and super convenient for small jobs and high work. The only problem is the tools get frustratingly unreliable when temperatures approach freezing. Apparently, the fuel doesn’t properly atomize in colder temperatures, so the tool won’t fire. And a faulty framing nailer is the last thing you want when you’re standing on an extension ladder in the cold.
But today, the company announced that they’ve developed a new version of their Framing Fuel that works consistently in temperatures down to 18 deg. The manufacturer claims that the new formulation gives consistent performance even when it’s too cold for oil-lubed compressors to start. Priced at about $12, it costs the same as the original formula.
