30 Jun A New Framing Nailer from Senco
New from Kyocera Senco Industrial Tools, Inc. is a pneumatic 3-1/2” framing nailer (item FN91T1) that drives a wide range of paper tape collated nails from .113” to .135” in diameter, and 2” to 3-1/2” in length. It has an in-line magazine for clear line of sight, and a tool-free thumbwheel depth of drive for quick adjustments. Built in the USA, the gun was designed to sink nails all day long and survive the toughest job sites without causing undue fatigue to the user.
This is Senco’s most powerful pneumatic framer yet and can consistently sink framing nails in dense engineered lumber like LVL and OSB without slowing down. The nailer drives paper-collated, 34-degree clipped-head and offset-round-head nails. Weighing in at 8.75 lbs. and featuring a magnesium magazine and a body and belt hook made from heavy-duty aluminum, it also has an over-molded rubber grip that prevents slipping and reduces fatigue from recoil. The pronounced nose piece grips tightly for toenailing from any angle, and the gun has dry fire lockout to reduce wear on internal components. The magazine allows for rapid reloads for both right and lefthanded users.
Beside framing, the FN91T1 is ideal for truss building, subflooring, sheathing, decking, siding, fencing, pallets and crate assembly. As of late June, it should be available at Senco dealers in the US and Canada with a suggested retail price of $299. Each tool comes with an air plug, a no-mar pad and an industry-leading 5-year warranty. A new Senco framing nailer that shoots plastic-collated, full-round-head nails will be available soon.
