Paslode Framing Nailer Model CF325XP

The Paslode CF325XP framing nailer is a dream tool. It's a rough carpenter's go-to tool once he uses one for just ten minutes. This tool was so popular, I shared it with all my readers in my February 16, 2016 AsktheBuilder Newsletter.

Paslode CF325XP Benefits:

  • no heavy noisy compressor
  • no hoses
  • drive nails within 10 seconds of taking out of case
  • durable

As you might imagine, this is why I switched to Paslode guns for the remaining 40% of my career.

Paslode Framing Nailer Needs No Hoses

The first one I used was air powered and you simply can't believe how much work this tool could do in an hour.

After using the gun just ten seconds I knew I'd use them forever because they save so much time.

How Long Have You Used Paslode Guns?

I've owned and used Paslode nail guns for over 30 years. (That sentence was written in 2018.)

I remember decades ago when the first Paslode impulse guns came to market. I was intrigued by them because air-powered guns require hoses, a large noisy compressor and lots of effort to connect everything together.

The Paslode framing nailer and all other Paslode guns just needed a tiny fuel cartridge and a battery. Once I saw this, I bought my first one. A few months later I purchased their finish nailers.

I was in love with these guns that worked instantly as soon as you opened the case. I've driven well over 100,000 nails with my Paslode guns.

Gone forever was the need for the cumbersome air hoses, gasoline for a compressor and the backaches of lifting the heavy compressor in and out of the back of my truck.

However, times have changed and the battery that provides the needed power to run the exhaust fan and provide a spark to ignite the puff of gas inside the tiny combustion engine is now lithium ion.

Cold Won't Stop Paslode

I now live up in central New Hampshire and believe me, it can get cold. This new Paslode framing nailer is certified to work at temperatures as low as 14 F. That's a huge plus and you'll rarely miss an hour's work with this new functionality.

This gun will work for you day in day out. In all my years, I never had a failure. But you need to know that I followed the instructions and kept the gun clean and oiled. You need to do the same.

Close Fuel

You can squeeze another 4 degrees from this fuel cartridge. The gun can't tell the difference between 14 and 18 F! LOL!

Paslode Framing Fuel

The magic happens with the nails. See that black coating? It's a high-performance adhesive that melts from the friction of the nail being driven. READ all the safety instructions before using this great tool.

You'll get tired driving nails before the gun will. Don't think for a minute you can beat the gun. It will mock you as you sit down taking a break.

Paslode Lithium Battery

You can keep the battery in the tool and slide it to the OFF position to not waste electrons.

Old vs New Battery

The small battery is the new Lithium-ion technology. The long bulky battery is decades-old technology. The old battery is great, but the new smaller battery is better!

Memorize these specs. There will be a test later.

This is a handsome gun. They decided on 30 degrees for a reason. Twenty-nine was already taken and thirty-one is just not cool.
