Fasco Framing Nailer - Any good?
« on: November 05, 2018, 08:22 AM »
As the title says, I'm about to get a decent pneumatic framing nailer, not sure which direction to take and a bit of advice on Fasco would be appreciated.

I've looked at Senco, Dewalt, Paslode and Fasco as contenders but being UK based we don't have a lot of info on Facso and they seem to have a bigger following in the US.

Can anyone shed any light on this, is Fasco a trusted brand and how does it fair against the other brands up there ^.

I'm definitely going the pneumatic route, tried a few cordless nailers and they didn't instill confidence. I have decent air supply equipment and don't need the mobility aspect of the battery / gas options.

In the US the Hitachi NR83A2 is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to framing nailers.

The Hitachi version I mentioned above wasn’t included in the Pro Tool Reviews Framing Nailer Shootout, but their article probably got a lot of good info that you might find helpful.

The Fasco wasn’t included in their shootout, but here’s a review of it:

Thanks Pnw painter.

Will have a read through.

I'm struggling to get Hitachi air nailers in the UK although I suspect they are going through a re-brand at the moment anyhow.

Does Fasco have any credibility in the US, is it one to watch or avoid?
