Since the strength of a house depends largely on the strength of its structural frame, it is important that all of its components such as its beams, rafters, joists, struts, studs, posts, and girders should be securely and firmly fastened together. It is for this reason that carpenters exercise extra care when hammering the frame of a house together, taking their time to ensure that every piece of wood and every nail is in its right place. There is, however, a faster and easier yet more secure way of building the frame –a DeWalt D51855 Coil Framing Nailer.
Intended specifically for framing, fencing, patio or deck assembly, and other structural work, the D51855 relies on a motor with a unique design that is sufficiently strong to sink 3-1/2-inch long nails, whether into standard framing lumber or engineered wood. Notwithstanding its power, recoil is quite minimal. And to keep power consistent with each firing, the motor incorporates a catch that holds the piston at its rearmost position before each shot.
Owing to its innovative design, the nailer is able to deliver extra power in spite of its minimized air use. Indeed, it only uses 80% of what other framing nailers need to drive their nails. Still, it can deliver 815 in-lbs of energy at 100 PSI.
Framing nails with lengths varying from 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 inches, and with diameters ranging from 0.99 to 0.131 inch, are contained in a coil magazine. Depending on the diameter of the nails, it can hold 200 to 300 nails. You only need to pull out the magazine if it needs reloading. If you are changing nail sizes, an easy push button mounted on the magazine helps in making the needed adjustments.
Although jams are rare, clearing them is likewise easy requiring no tool. The same is true if you need to adjust the depth of your nails. You only need to turn a dial to choose flushed or countersunk nailing.
For your comfort, the grip of the framing nailer is overmolded with rubber, making it soft to hold and slip-free. An adjustable rafter hook is also included for hanging the tool on your belt when it is not in use.
