Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Fasco F58AC RHN20-90 SCR SS/CT Strip Nailer

Fasco has come out with the F58AC RHN20-90 SCR SS/CT. This strip nailer features the ability to handle three 20 degree fastener types including Plastic Strip SCRAIL (for both fine and course threads), BeckDeck double threaded SCRAIL, and Plastic Strip Collated Concrete Pins.


The Fasco F58AC has a patent pending magazine design that has two insertion points with top and side loading as well as a complete magazine release system that Fasco claims will make jam clearing easier. Given what we know of these types of magazines, we’d say that’s a safe bet. The Bosch SN350-20F framing nailer we reviewed a while back has a similar design and we actually prefer that to any of the methods requiring you to pull out the ole’ Allen wrench.

Additional safety features on the Fasco F58AC RHN20-90 include a dry fire prevention lock out device, plastic protection to shield against wood chips and splinters, and an included sequential fire/bump fire (single shot/contact trip) device. Fasco also tells us that their patent pending design offers good ergonomics and excellent tool balance. From the looks of it, we’d have to agree. About the only thing we don’t like about this new nailer is the name. It’s like Fasco wanted to get the entire alphabet in there. It’s a strip nailer, folks, not a 32-bit encrypted security code…

The Fasco F58AC RHN20-90 SCR SS/CT strip nailer is available from Fasco America’s website.

The Metabo HPT 3-1/2 inch Coil Nailer is the former, reliable-as-the-day-is-long Hitachi NV90AG(S) with a redesigned head guard. It’s technically a new tool but we’ve actually been using the Hitachi-branded model for years. We’ve been framing up a storm on a recent house remodel: new floor joists, walls, sheathing—you name it. It gave us the […]

It is a long model code indeed:) . It letter & number has a meaning:)
F58AC RHN20-90 SCR SS/CT

One of the design benefits of Fasco tools is that they are modular (one body style marries up to several different tools)

F58AC is the motor series here
RHN20 signifies 20 degree Round Head Nailer
SCR means it also takes Scrail
SS/CT means it has a selectable safety capable of being a Sequential Safety or Contact Trip (bump)
