PASLODE Cordless Roofing Nailer CR175C

Yesterday while at the Baltimore 2010 Remodeling Show I was privileged to preview Paslode’s new cordless roofing nailer, model CR175C.Finally a tool that will make a difference for Remodelers and repair personal. Tools like this save time and I’ve said it before…. “time is money!”

Time Saving

This tool eliminates the need for a compressor and a hose set up, which is always a pain in the butt for smaller scale remodel or repair jobs. Not having to deal with a pneumatic cord tangling up in your legs while on a ladder also equals a safer experience on the ladder!

Perfect For Small Repairs and Punch List

I can see this tools being used for many roof-related remodeling jobs, including repairing a roof leak, roofing dormers and small additions, installing skylights. It can also be used for any application that I use roof nails on, for example, nailing off window flanges.

Paslode is the first to offer a Fuel Powered Cordless Roofing Nailer System. The tools is powerful, lightweight and compact tool.

The CR175C drives two nails per second and holds 120 nails per coil. the nailer works similar to other cordless nailers by pushing the tool down and then pulling the trigger.

The CR175C features an adjustable depth of drive which reduces and often eliminates shingle blow-through. This tool has a single door magazine for easy loading, skid guards and a belt hook. It comes with an adjustable shingle guide for precise nail placement and has a soft grip handle for greater control.The Paslode CR175C can drive 2,200 nails per battery charge, and 950 nails per fuel cell. This cordless roofing nails is a game changer for remodelers like me!

The nails feature the PowerBoost™ Black Tip Coating for superior ease of drive and a unique vertical groove design for better holding power than standard roofing nails. Each Fuel + Nail Combo Pack contains enough nails to do two squares (200 square feet), your typical roofing repair job.The Paslode Cordless Roofing Nailer System, Model CR175C, comes with a convenient backpack and one Roofer’s Choice™ Fuel + Nail Pack, as well as a safety tether, rechargeable battery, charger and safety glasses.
