Overview
Paslode, a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), is a leading manufacturer and marketer of cordless and pneumatic fastening systems for construction, remodeling and industrial applications.
Founded in 1935 by industrialist J.W. Leslie, Paslode introduced the very first pneumatic tool -- a light duty upholstery tacker -- in 1959. Shortly thereafter, Paslode produced the first commercially accepted pneumatic nailer, The Gun-Nailer™, providing the construction industry with a cost efficient way to increase productivity and reduce worker fatigue.

    News
    Paslode introduces its new, low-maintenance and easy-to-handle Wide Crown Construction Stapler-model S150-W16R. The new stapler is available this month through authorized Paslode retailers and distributors.

    The new construction stapler replaces the previous 3000 series pneumatic construction stapler. The new tool has undergone extensive field testing to be more reliable than competitive staplers. The tool requires minimum maintenance and service-important to contractors to remain effective and profitable on the job.

    The stapler's compact design is also ergonomic-it's a lighter-weight, easier-to-handle tool that provides more control and also prevents user fatigue thanks to the SureGrip Handle. In field tests, contractors consistently preferred the Paslode Construction Stapler for balance, feel, maneuverability, and power.

    Other features of the new Construction Stapler include:

    Top Load Magazine-loads fasteners quickly and easily and with reduced waste
    Quick Clear Nose-allows easy access to quickly clear infrequent jams
    Adjustable Shingle Guide-keeps roofing shingles properly aligned and provides versatility
    New Bumper Design-performs reliably and without failure for over 600,000 cycles, more than three times the life of competitive bumpers
    The new stapler drives 5/8" to 1-1/2" wide crown 16 gauge staples, and is ideal for installing roofing shingles, wire lathing, insulation sheathing, polystyrene sheathing, housewrap, and insulation.
    For more information about the new Paslode Pneumatic Construction Stapler, contact the company at (800) 682-3428 ext. PR, or visit www.paslode.com.
