Senco F-35FRHXP Cordless Framing Nailer

Senco Releases First Full Round Head Cordless Framing Nailer

Senco has announced that coming later this month, they’ll release their first full round head cordless framing nailer. The Senco F-35FRHXP Framing Nailer joins the already-robust line of nailers, with this cordless model utilizing the proprietary Fusion technology to drive up to 3-1/2 full round head, 20° plastic collated nails.

What is Fusion Technology?

Senco Fusion nailers feature a cordless/pneumatic technology that pressurizes a sealed compressed air cylinder. It lets these battery-powered nailers deliver the speed, feel, and performance of a true pneumatic nailer. It can also handle driving nails fully into the hardest substrates, like LVL. We prefer this technology over the use of a flywheel.

Unlike a flywheel-based nailer, with the Senco F-35FRHXP cordless framing nailer, you won’t have to wait on the tool to ramp up before or between shots. The brushless motor compresses the cylinder, pre-readying the tool for every shot. This opens the nailer up for consistent bump firing performance. And, because you don’t have to contend with fuel cells, the Fusion-powered nailer won’t break the bank or produce fumes.

Side By Side

Senco’s Fusion technology isn’t unique to just the F-35FRHXP. It’s present on other Senco battery-powered nailers. Most recently, it appeared on the Senco F-35XP. That “version” fires 34° clipped-head, paper tape-collated framing nails.

The Senco F-35FRHXP features a 20º magazine that can hold up to 35 nails at a time. It fires nails from 2″ to 3-1/2″ long and .113″ to .131″ in diameter.

Like the Senco F-35XP, this nailer can drive up to 600 nails on a single charge of a 3.0Ah Li-ion battery.

Senco Cordless Framing Nailer

Last year, we launched the F-35XP to a great deal of enthusiasm. However, users of plastic collated nails quickly let us know they wanted a full round head version that would work with their preferred fasteners. The F-35FRHXP is the answer to that request and the first expansion of SENCO’s cordless framing nailer line that provides more options to meet our customers’ needs.
