Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Cordless Nailer Reviews

If you haven’t yet used a cordless nailer you’re missing out. Our cordless nailer reviews put these non-pneumatic nailers and nail guns into the hands of Pros. We try and see if they can hold up to the rigors of jobsite abuse. While many of these products aren’t as lightweight as their pneumatic counterparts, there are distinct advantages. Our nailer reviews test gas models and battery-powered tools for how they fit into a contractor’s daily work. For the fuel models, advances such as new Paslode framing fuel allow for better use in cold temperatures. The same goes for better li-ion batteries. Cordless Nailer Reviews for Roofing, Trim, and More The thing with new cordless nailers is that they can tackle a wide variety of applications. New products have come to market from Milwaukee, Makita, Paslode, RYOBI, DeWalt, and others. These products include cordless trim nailers, framing nailers, pinners, and even cordless roofing nailers like the Paslode CR175C. For punch lists and interior trim carpentry, our cordless nailer reviews have been consistent. Also, these tools can really save on setup and teardown time.
