    Any idea if Bosch is working on a cordless framing nailer?

    I’m in the market and if anyone has heard if Bosch is going this route I could definitely hold off for a few months. I’d hate to buy a Paslode or one of those new fangled battery only Dewalt only to have Bosch release one a few months later.

    So much better than the Paslode Impulse. I bought two of those years ago, and after a few weeks they started having issues. Also hated the smell and cost of the gas. If you have a tool supplier near you, do what I did. Ask the to let you test fire the Dewalt a few times.

    Any issues with the Dewalt cordless? How’s the balance on it?

    Like any cordless nailer, it is a little heavy. Balance is good, but takes a little while to get used to. I don’t think I have fired off more than 500 shots in a day with it, but I bet if you used it in heavy duty framing, your arm would feel it.

    I’m in the same camp. I can’t see how they could clearance all of their old inventory and produce nothing new for two years then suddenly release a battery powered framer. Maybe I’m wrong…several member here like their 18v 16ga brad nailer.

    I was hoping they’d been pouring money into R&D since pulling out and Dewalt just beat them to the punch on the cordless framer.

    I tested it out at a trade show . I felt it is a little heavy for a cordless nailer . The bump fire is pretty cool . Just feels a bit bulky over paslode . I can’t wait to see there finish nailer hit the market.

    Always willing to learn .

    your very right about the bulkiness of hte dewalt nailers.. their finish nailers feel heavy as hell for a 18 gauge or 16 gauge.. i would rather just use a pneumatic instead… the dewalt cordles framer feels horribly balanced which will cause user fatigue pretty quick

    I have owned and used both the Paslode impulse, and now the Dewalt framer. I can honestly say, there is no comparison. Other than it being a little heavy, but manageable, it is everything that I hoped it would be

    I’d say even if they were working on one, it would be a heck of a lot longer than a few months until you could buy one. I think you’ll need to look elsewhere.

    #366517

    I guess I’ll need to test out the Dewalt and see how it stacks us with the Paslode. I borrowed an Impulse last year and liked it alright. It’s a real shame that Bosch is out of the game. Dewalt has let me down on my last two purchases and I’d hate to reward them with another.

    I would have to agree with Jeff, after packing up the air nailer line and only keeping the 18V trim gun, I doubt Bosch will do much with nail guns in the near future.

    I can say there has been no discussion of this sort of tool by our sponsor. Sounds like you are going to have a tough time making your decision, although the members seem to have some good advice and insights.

    I don’t remember what Degree the nails are for the Dewalt Framer .
