Tough Performance: A Solid Look at DeWalt Pneumatic Nailers

Guy Using Dewalt Power Tool

When your tools need to work as hard as you do, many contractors turn to DeWalt for serious performance and long-lasting durability. The company has made its name for tough job site performance and reliability. One of the hardest-used tools on framing operations are pneumatic nailers. But which one is best for your particular situation and crew needs? What features will best fit your needs at a new job site? Here's a quick look at some of the newer pneumatic nailers developed by some of the ingenious people at DeWalt and the great features that are on board at the very start:

DW325PL Stick Framing Nailer

DW325PL Stick Framing Nailer

Featuring a compact, lightweight design with a 12.5" height that allows you to work all day without fatigue and get into tight spaces, the DW325PL stick framing nailer is powerful enough to deal with engineered lumber while providing a good balance in the hand. With the option to choose between touch and trigger actuation, you can quickly switch between modes to promote jobsite safety or faster production. An internal air filter helps prevent jobsite debris from being pulled into the tool, protecting your investment. With a common 21 degree magazine angle, you can use any number of different fastener brands across the board with no great issues, allowing for fewer trips to the store for an odd magazine angle. Tool free depth adjustment makes sure you're not overshooting your mark, while a tool free selectable trigger allows for either firing or actuation, making it great for both precision and speed.

DW325C Coil Framing Nailer

With a capacity of up to 200 nails, the DW325C coil framing nailer has a heavy-duty canister that will hold up to significant impacts, yet opens quickly for fast reloads. With a lightweight aluminum frame at 8.8 pounds that allows for easy use all day long without fatigue, the toe-nailing teeth grip provides a solid hold for nailing without slipping, while the no-mar pad prevents scratches and nicks where they're not wanted. Its compact frame also allows it to fit into smaller spaces than a traditional stick framing nailer, providing better accessibility to the area of the structure you need. It operates under a 50 PSI range of 70 to 120 PSI, allowing it to be used with a range of other tools on the same compressor without having to make constant changes between tool pressures.

DWMC150 Metal Connector

The svelte design of the DWMC150 metal connectorallows it to fit between 12" on center spacing, providing easy access to hurricane ties, mending plates and joist hangers. How small of spaces, you ask? The tight 35 degree magazine angle allows you to get in to the smallest spaces with a total tool length of 11.75", and you'll have 29 rounds to get it where it needs to go. At the same time, the adjustable exhaust ensure you're not getting a blast of air in the face or on a sensitive surface. It also features an exposed nail point, allowing you to very precisely place nails in the metal connector, leading to fewer jams from bent nails and injuries on the job from a poorly sighted fastener. It also features sequential actuation, ensuring that it doesn't shoot a nail until you're ready for it, and has jam clearance features just in case you do squeeze the trigger just a touch off from where you should have.
