Our M18 FUEL 30 Degree Framing Nailer Kit sets the new standard for cordless framing nailers. By leveraging our nitrogen spring mechanism, POWERSTATE brushless motor, and REDLINK Intelligence, this nailer provides you with pneumatic performance and the convenience and freedom of cordless power. Delivering the power to sink full round head nails into dense engineered lumbers, this framing nailer allows you to tackle even the most demanding framing applications. To keep you productive and efficient throughout the day, the framing gun fires 3 nails per second with zero ramp-up time, meaning a nail is fired as soon as you pull the trigger. Additionally, the cordless framing nailer operates using only our REDLITHIUM Batteries and sealed compressed nitrogen to drive each nail, completely eliminating the cost of gas cartridges and maintenance associated with competitors' nailers. The M18 FUEL 30 Degree Framing Nailer delivers the pneumatic performance and durability that professional carpenters and remodelers expect, without the hassle of a compressor and hose or gas cartridge
Q: How does the Nitrogen Gas Spring Mechanism function?
A: This mechanism is very similar to pneumatics. The pressure in the tank is used to drive the piston/striker, and thus the nail into material
Q: Does a user need to re-fill the nitrogen in the tank? Do they have to worry about it leaking?
A: There is no requirement to re-fill the nitrogen. It is a completely sealed system, meaning it should not lose tank pressure over time. If a leak was to occur it would be covered under our 3 year manufacturers warranty
Q: Will users have to replace any parts over the life of the tool?
A: Yes, normal nailer wear items will have to be replaced periodically over the life of the tool, similar to all pneumatics. This includes items like the striker, piston & seals, and lifter components (mechanism that picks striker up to back of the tank)
Q: Can a user replace any components of the tool on their own?
A: Unlike pneumatics, the M18 Framing Nailers are not intended to be serviced by users. Any service of internal components will require the tool to be sent in for service External components such as magazines, contact bracket, and belt/rafter hooks are user serviceable and will have service parts available
Q: Do the M18 Framing Nailers accept all brand nails, or do we suggest specific brands?
A: The nailer will accept all brand nails that meet the length, diameter, and head style specifications We suggest to use high quality nails to minimize any potential for jams or nail feeding issues

A: Yes Jammed strikers can be reset by following the steps below: 1. Remove battery from tool and nails from magazine 2. Re-insert battery and pull magazine nail pusher down, allowing you to dry fire the tool 3. Turn tool on and dry fire tool against piece of scrap material You should hear a ratchetting sound.
