Has anyone bought the new Senco battery operated finish nailer? I am curious to know how nice this gun works.

They work well but what they don’t tell you is that when you break a driver, you have to buy a whole new piston system which cost as much as the gun.

It works like a charm, a little heavier than traditional pneumatic nailers.

Do you have any specific questions? I’ve got one on-hand with a full review scheduled for later this week.

Stuey,
I don’t have any questions , I bought one of the earlier models years ago when they first came out and tried it for a few days. Did not like they way it worked so I returned it. So when I saw a photo of the new model coming available this week I think I want one, but will try it out before purchasing. I am to the point tired of unloading tools and compressors on the job sites, I do own Senco’s small 10lb. compressor which works great to use but you cannot shoot to many 2 1/2” nails ahead of the compressor . The guy’s at Service Lumber here in our area said they have shot nails with it and said it works great. Plus it has a lot of good features, Will wait to see.

The thing about the Senco Fusion is that it has a built-in self-contained air source, so it’s appreciably lighter than conventional battery-only nailers.

The downsides are that the Fusion nailer is heavier than an ordinary air nailer, and costs ~2.5 times as much. But, its tether-free design is pretty amazing.

This is the type of tool that I would only order from Amazon or a local retailer with a good return policy. The nailer kits only include one Li-ion battery, but it has a very decent charging time – 15 mins for 80%, 45mins for 100% capacity.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I know. It sells for $399.00 so it is worth the money if it works like they say.
