Paslode Unveils Cordless Roofing Nailer

Paslode Fuel Powered Cordless Roofing Nailer System, Model CR175C

Paslode has just announced the first ever cordless roofing nailer at the 2010 Remodelers Show. To say this new tool concept is innovative would be an understatement. Paslode has taken their proven cordless technology and built the new CR175C to meet the demands of roofing specialists who perform small tasks such as repair, remodeling and punch lists.

I had the pleasure of playing with the all new roofing nailer at the Remodelers Show this week and it’s very impressive. I’m certain this new tool will follow in the steps of the other Paslode cordless tools. This tool was certainly one of the most impressive and innovative tools to debut at this years show.

We’ll get our hands on one of these in the near future and put it to the test. In the meantime check out what the folks at Paslode have to say about their latest tool.

According to the folks at Paslode

This revolutionary tool is easy to use, drives two nails per second and holds 120 nails per coil. Like other fuel powered cordless tools, the Paslode roofing nailer drives nails sequentially by pushing the tool down and then pulling the trigger. It is faster than hand nailing and is perfect for a wide range of roof-related remodeling jobs, including roofing dormers and small additions, installing skylights, or working on garages and storage buildings.

By design, the Paslode Cordless Roofing Nailer contributes to precise nail placement, which helps eliminate issues of high nailing. Additionally, Paslode’s new cordless roofing nailer features an adjustable depth of drive which reduces and often eliminates shingle blow-through. Together, these features translate into a higher quality roofing job.

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 Cordless Roofing Nailer System can drive 2,200 nails per battery charge, and 950 nails per fuel cell.

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. It also features a one year full coverage warranty and five year limited warranty. For more information, go to or call 1-800-222-6990.
