Senco FN55AX 18 Gauge Fusion Nailer
This is a truly unique tool and quite possibly the first of the next generation of cordless nailers. According to the manufacturer, the battery on this unit is good for 600 shots per charge. With the lithium-ion batteries and fast charger thats included in the package, you can recharge to 80 percent in 15 minutes, allowing for quick turn-around and continued work.
But thats not what makes this nailer unique. Whats so great about it is the truly innovative way that it drives the nails. Instead of burning gas for power, Senco has built this unit with an integral gas chamber, filled with non-reactive nitrogen. When the trigger is pulled, the gas drives a piston, pushing the plunger which drives the nail. There is a small gear motor, which returns the piston to its original position, re-compressing the gas in the process.
A built-in work light is included, along with a led indicator for battery power level (not just an Im dead light). A selector switch offers sequential (pull the trigger every time) or bump-fire mode. The unit is quickly adjustable for depth with an easily accessible thumbwheel. They've even made the belt hook adjustable for both depth and right or left handed operation.
