Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Manufacturer: Senco

You can’t have a tool review site without Senco nailer reviews. The brand has established itself with a reputation for manufacturing excellent nailers. Beyond that, they have pioneered cordless nailer technology with products like the Senco Fusion F-15 angled finish nailer. The Senco FinishPro 30XP 15-gauge finish nailer is also a great performer and set the bar for lightweight pneumatic finish nailers. Senco makes their nailers so that no oil required and they eliminate downtime caused by fastener jams with quick-release mechanisms. Overall, we’ve really enjoyed using Senco products, and they seem to hold up very well against the competition. Senco Nailer Reviews for Pro Framers and Carpenters If you’re a professional framer you’ve likely used either Hitachi or Senco nailers (or both). These brands, along with a few others, really dominate the industry. Senco has established itself as a leader and continues to impress us with innovation and new products.

Senco FramePro 325FRHXP Review

In speaking with carpenters who recently built a pole barn for me, there were preferences for what kind of tool they use to drive nails. Some crews were hammer-only crews. Others were Paslode crews. I’m not going to try and change your mind about whether hammer and nail, cartridge, or full pneumatic is best. I’ll […]

Here at Pro Tool Reviews, we’ve got a soft spot for Senco. We give a lot of love to their pneumatic products – both their nailers and compressors are excellent.

Senco DuraSpin DS425AC Deck Installation Review

A few months ago (before the Senco Duraspin DS425AC showed up and changed my life), I had the pleasure of building an 814 sq. ft. deck. I created this beauty from making what seemed like countless cuts in 2×6 pressure treated boards with a Ridgid 12″ sliding compound miter saw. I prefer 2×6 over 5/4 deck […]

Senco PC0968 Air Compressor Review

I have tested the new Senco PC0968 Air Compressor for about a month now and must say that it is a great little compressor. Compressors are of two types, diaphragm, and piston. The former is for light-duty, low output situations. A good example is a 12-volt emergency compressor you carry in the car. It takes a […]
