Cordless framing nailer


So I am happily shooting away today with my 15 year old porter cable fr350 round head nailer.....and then air comes shooting out the side of the case itself and it is bye bye. At $100 min to send it our and get it refurbished, I am moving to fuel cellpwered. So, recommendations?.

I want full round head, able to shoot 16p nails as well as 6p, reliable, etc. it would be NICE if it could take two sticks of nails at a time like my PC but I can live with the ones that only take 1 1/2.

while I am not a "pro" doing it for money every day, I DO use it pretty heavily so I am NOT interested in harbor freight junk.

Looking at hitachi, senco, and pasload at this point. Thoughts. Ron

From what I've seen, Paslode is by far the most popular. But I have no experience with that brand.

I have a Paslode IMCT framing nailer and like it. It does not take 16p nails though. Have not used the other brands.

After thinking on it, a 3 1/4" nail would be fine. I doubt that anyone will measure! Ron

I have paslode and no experience with other cordless. Fuel can add up, but it's become reliable. No problems for me with occasional cleaning.
Round head, I think for framing, is over-rated. If nailing schedule calls for round heads for added strength, I'd add one more nail. This may be important in hurricane or such areas, however. If you're doing sheathing, though, you may want to stick with the round heads. I use paslode sometimes and I leave the heads out on purpose and hand nail home.
